Compact design with good small greens
Played Sunday morn after some heavy rain the previous days. The small greens were in good shape, most being elevated but there were lots of wet spots in the fairway. The course is generous off the tee but small greens put a premium on iron play. Pace of okay was slow but I auppose that’s common in Miami.
The club house is a bit old but nice. Full locker room with showers which was convenient.
There are lots of interesting old fig trees and other tropical trees on the course.
The only real negative was one pond on the course had a pollution boom and it had collected a load of floating trash. Can’t blame the course for all the trash but if they’re going to set up the floating boom they should go clean up the trash. And people need to learn to put trash in the proper receptacles.
Great course great layout and fast greens love this place !!!
Booked a tee time on Golfnow. Got to the course and they punched the greens the day before and the back nine is closed because they’re punched GM those today. We got in the car and played somewhere else. I would like a refund for my feed Golfnow..
Fastest greens in S. Florida. Great course in very good shape.
Best course for the money
Excellent greens, excellent fairways, great layout.
Very nice course to play
This is an old but not a typical FL course. It has elevated greens, some contour fairways, fewer water hazards, etc. The greens just got punched about 2 weeks ago but they have recovered very well. Therefore, the greens are even much better in about another week or so. The hole layouts are somewhat confusing for first-time players at the course but management tries to provide as many directional signs as possible to help the players navigate the course. The regular fee is kind of pricey when comparing to other nearby similar courses. Overall, I would play this course again is the price is right and would recommend it to friends.
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.
Best course in Miami
The course is always in great shape and the staff are the best
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
A friendly match
Good layout. Small hard elevated greens, but fair course.
