Christmas Eve round of golf

I had just landed in Miami that morning. Played 18 holes as a single, they paired me up with another single. We had a fun round of golf. The greens were extremely fast. The layout was a little confusing as far as hole direction. The grounds were well manicured and the rough was not too penal. I would play this course again.

Fast Greens

Very slow going. 5 1/2 hour round made what should have been an enjoyable round rather frustrating. Finished in the dark. Teed off 20 mins after scheduled time. No doubt the time of the year contributed to that.

The course presents its own challenge with elevated greens and surrounding slopes. The greens are better than average with their speed and conditioning. There were several soft spots on the course because of rain. Will play this course again & hopefully the pace will be better.

Very very good. Can’t wait to play again. Routing is a little weird but I can overlook because of the rest.

Delightful

It was a delight to play this course. I was looking for a course to play in the Miami area that was in good shape and reasonable and not overly challenging-- I found it: Miami Shores. The course was in great shape, especially the greens which were firm and rolled perfectly. Fairways, tees, traps all in good condition. Some undulation, especially with greens which are pretty much all plateau-like. Iguanas romp around near the waterways and help you find errant shots. Staff was good. Price was good. Highly recommended.

Nice course - Interesting greens

The course is in good conditions, while there were several tees and car paths closed for repairs. Greens are firm, on the fast side, well kept and very true. Bunkers are too compacted.

The layout is not too complicated or difficult. Some uncommon elevations and not a lot of water (3 shots over canals) , for South Florida standards.

The course defenses are the penal rough -with plenty of high St Augustine mixed with Bermuda- and especially the small, elevated and hard greens. It's difficult to hold the approaches. The strategy is to approach in front of the pins and let it roll, unless you have lost of height and backspin..

I found out walking is allowed, so maybe next time.

I think the course's slopes (131/130/129) are higher than the actual difficulty. They were lower before and the design has not changed.

I hit a better than average score, and I have my best score ever in this course, so it should not be that difficult.

I enjoyed this course. It was in great condition and had a pretty good layout - definitely worth the rate if you are playing during the summer. Relatively easy round of 18.

Good course at a reasonable price

As an English man killing my last few days in the US (I was looking for a round or two to squeeze in after spending the week at Trump Doral), I discovered the course on the GolfNow app.

Condition or standard-wise It's no Blue Monster but to be honest, I found it just as enjoyable.

Played from the back tees it presents a slight challenge for a mid to low handicapper and there is some variation. Greens are good (not too tough to read), and the overall condition was fair.

The staff were friendly and welcoming, the food reasonably priced. If it was on a Hot Deal I would play it again (the standard green fee is too high in my opinion).
