Historic Miami Shores Country Club offers a classic 18-hole championship golf course that is the home of a vast array of sub-tropical wildlife and vegetation. The Club has been host to a number of prestigious events including the Florida State Open.

Celebrities such as Bob Hope, Joe DiMaggio, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead and Lee Trevino have graced the lush fairways.

The front nine calls for precise approach shots into small well bunkered, contoured greens. The incoming nine calls for well-placed tee shots.

This Red Laurence designed course offers other amenities like a 120 seat lounge with a panoramic view of the golf course and lighted driving range, six clay tennis courts, three hard courts, swimming pool, extra large men's and ladies' locker rooms and a staff that understands the meaning of service.

Pleasure

I was pleasantly surprised playing this course. Nice feel for a city course. It will take a little getting used to the elevated Greens.

As good as golfing in Florida gets...

Layout is fun and challenging. The canal that runs through the course plays an interesting role on many holes. They keep the course in very good overall shape but the best part are the greens, rolling truly and above average speed.
Would definitely recommend playing this course when visiting Miami Beach.

Greens had been recently too dressed but course was still in good shape and played well. Course is forgiving off the tee but the greens are small, well-guarded, and penalize short side misses. I thought it was a good place to play and would do so again.

Nice little gem

Great playable course in the city. Tees, fairways and greens all in great shape and the layout is challenging but fair. Plenty of room to spray a little off the tee and be able to recover. Lots of elevated geeens and bunkers where the course can bite you. Place of play was good and the facilities including food and beverage were very good. Highly recruit especially for the price

Pleasantly Surprised

Having lived in Miami for a number of years, I'm surprised it took me so long to find this gem. Miami Shores Country Club was fun, beautiful, and in excellent shape. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to maximize their utility.

Gem in Miami beach

Really enjoyed course, fast raised greens, challenging but not impossible. I liked everything about this course. My wife and I played in about 3.5 hours on a Sunday.

Average cours

Decent course but better course layouts in Miami. Very difficult to find the next hole in many locations on the course. Train tracks adjacent to the course with frequent train runs near the course. Golf maintenance crews had very little respect for the players. The sand traps are poorly raked probably because the rakes provided are in terrible shape. Many better choices and better values in Miami
