With the exception of slow greens due to recent airation and cross cut, the course is in very nice shape.

I’ve played here many times and have found the course to be a great layout and normally in good condition. I was very disappointed to find out that the course had been aerated when I arrived without any prior notice on the website. The greens and tee boxes were unusable on some holes. I get that aeration is important part of the greenskeeping but the course should have to disclose this and it should be advertised in clear view on the GN app. Waste of time and money.

Due to sand topdressing a few days before my round, the greens were as slow as the rude pair of hackers who refused to allowed my colleague and I to play through and finish last seven holes in timely fashion. Otherwise, we cruised through this entertaining, old-school course, thanks to reliably well-manicured fairways and forgiving rough. Lack of on-course cart service and ranger disappointed, as well as overbooked tee times. Still, helpful starter who expertly routed us to back nine first, $50 discounted rate and gorgeous, sun-drenched day, smoothed the edges of a jagged round.

We’ve been trying all the courses in the Miami area. Normandy Shores and The Biltmore and the nicest/most expensive.

NS was Close to a 5 hour round

Our tee time was 12:29 and we hit the first ball at 1pm

So instead of being off the course at 4:30 (4 hour round starting at 12:29) we got off the course near 6 (1pm and 4:50 round)

Staff was amazing and course is beautiful. Will try it again and hope for better

Visited Florida for three days of golf. Played Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club, Osprey Point, and then Normandy Shores.

Loved the first two courses and was excited to play Normandy based on reviews and pictures on Google Maps and YouTube.

Course is listed as 6500 from the whites but played more like 6100. It was a very windy day so we thought it would be a lot tougher than it was.

Practice area is nothing special and the driving range is narrow and we hit off of mats. As far as the course the greens were in nice shape but they had very little break to most of them. Course is pretty open, there are some trees but nothing you can't punch out from.

I was expecting a very nice course based on the Non Resident rate of $125 but was surprised that it failed in comparison to Osprey Point which was about $75. The tee times are set up 7 minutes apart and the pace of play was BRUTAL. These are the kind of rounds that makes you wanna quit golf. We waited on every shot on the front nine and it was obvious the group two ahead of us was holding up the group in front of us. We kept our fingers crossed that we might be able to jump ahead after the front nine but to our disgust as we approached the 10th tee there was a group waiting, a group walking off the tee, a group approaching the green, and a group walking off the green. If this was a home course we would have walked off by about the 13th hole and never returned.

We should have played Osprey Point again.

This is a fun course with some pretty quality views. Unfortunately the pace of play was a little slow, but it was a Saturday and we got paired up with a couple who hadn't played in years. The course is very open - I was told it was not as open prior to the hurricane which took many of its trees. The conditions are pretty good.

What's not to love? A very tight layout in great shape with a cooling ocean breeze. My only complaint was the pace of play was a bit over four hours, but other than that - fantastic.
