The Country Club of Miami, located near residential areas, boasts two courses, the East Course and the West Course. Both golf courses at the club have seen many famous players including Jackie Gleason, Bob Hope, and Jack Nicklaus. The West Course features rolling greens as well as many strategically placed bunkers. Water hazards also come into play on a few holes. The course is very well maintained and provides a good game for players of any skill level. Conveniently, the golf club has a large pitting, putting, and chipping area where golfers can work on their short game and there is also a grass driving range.

Not Many Choices in Dade County

Public courses in Miami hard to find. Either expensive or poor quality. This one falls under poor quality but still charged $50 on a Saturday after 11:00. Greens were decent except for 2 that were unplayable (had to play automatic 2 putt on these they were so bad). Fairways a combination of pressed weeds and a little grass. Very thin and hard to get under the ball. Rough was inconsistent and a combination of weeds and gnarly grass. Driving range closed so no warm up except for a very small putting green that is almost impossible to chip around.

Closed for month - no improvement - damaged Greens

Most greens are damaged. Evident hurricane damages. Greens are in trouble. Only the west got infected, if you can believe it.

Layout re-routed, front and back nine switched, but the proshop and starter neglect to advise.

Walking allowed out of peek hours.

Nothing to write home about.

I have played this course a few times now over this past year, and over all it is an all right course. The fairways are a bit over grown everytime i play and the greens look like they go neglected for a few days a week. The layout of the course does present its challenges, but by far the most challenging part of this course are the neighborhood kids around this golf course. Oe more then one occasion there are birthday parties in the backyards of these houses backed up to the tee boxes with loud distracting music or kids running out on the course in the middle of a hole. So while this course is pretty fair for the price of golfnow.com I wouldnt recommend this to become a staple of a golf routine nor would I recommned anyone travels very far to play this course.

Godd course but....

I liked the layout of the course and it was challenging enough. What I didn't like was the condition of the greens. There were a lot of bare and deseased spots on each green which had a direct affect on the roll of the puts. The fairways were in decent shape especially after the 4 inches of rain the day before. I think if they would lower the price by $10 - $20 during the summer months it would be worth playing again.

A Great Course for Intermediate to Advanced Golfers

The course requires planning. There are plenty of Bunkers and Water Hazards to catch your ball if you are too aggressive. It's a lot easier to play from the fairway than the rough so, keeping you ball in the short grass will definitely make for a more enjoyable round. I look forward to playing it again soon.

Condition

Course condition was a little below average. Only a handful of greens is great shape. 1st green had a hole filled in with sand extra from the regular sand traps. Handful of tee box in great shape. Fairways was rough in multiple location.

Good Golf Course.

Tee boxes, fairways, and greens in good condition. Sand bunkers have many as small rocks. Great practice facility.
