Greens are great but tee boxes, fairways and rough is getting is thinned out to scalped or burnt out in many areas. Great layout and lots of fun to play but the course conditions are not very good. Hope Turf Valley turns this course around, it is the better layout of the two courses but it is not in good condition.

Played the Hialeah course on Saturday 7/27 and it wasn't much to remember. The first couple holes are extremely tight with a few other tight holes later in the round. The greens ran true, but were quite firm when chipping onto them. Many of the fairways and rough areas were brown or without grass, which wasn't appealing for a member preview round at this private/resort course, especially for the amount of rain we have had in July. The pace of play was smooth up until the last few holes when we caught a foursome that was content with playing a 5+ hour round.

Overall, it would be unlikely for me to return to this course for the rate I paid (mid $50's) and out of question to join this club at over $4k/year.

The Hialeah course layout is very interesting, challenging, and fun. There were some areas in a few fairways that were burned out or scalped, but overall conditions were excellent. The landscaping throughout the course was impressive. The greens were very soft but rolled quickly. Many holes had at least one side that offered trouble. This is a true mature parkland style course and is definitely worth playing at a reasonable price. The practice facilities were very good as well.

I played on the Hialeah Course, as all non-members were pushed off of the original course. The pace of play was very slow with no rangers monitoring pace of play. I understand that members are a priority, but if non-members or GolfNow users are to be allowed on the course, then they need to be treated like they belong (and not second-class citizens).
