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).
Old, established course, well maintained. I play it every time I visit Miami.
Need good iron shots to small greens but birdies are there if U hit them
Course was flooded; they should have probably closed, but hey-it beats work!
