Country Club of Miami - West
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.
Really challenging, tight fairways, lots of water, makes you really think of shot selection. Course is in great condition, well manicured fairways and bunkers. Greens are perfect condition except for a few holes.
West Course is a good round
Not for the timid golfer. Challenging forced carries, strategically placed bunkers, and great site lines.
Greens very well kept and enjoy the overall course
Great greens and fast pace of play
Weekday play was excellent. We finished in 3 1/2 hrs.
The greens were in great shape with a few holes where there was spotty repair underway.
The sand traps were great (nice soft sand) or poor (thin rock hard sand). For the price, this was an excellent deal. Fairway were fine as were the tee boxes. Great fun if you are conveniently located near this course.
Greens nice Fairways poor
The conditions of the fairway were fair at best. Tee boxes were void of grass in some places. The greens were in good shape and easy to put. The roll was true on the greens. Practice greens were in rough shape it sand and rough spots everywhere.
Nice easy course,tees could be better but greens lighting quick. Narrow entrances to greens.
I wil play this course again good vauld for overall
Valentine's Day Golf
Best way to celebrate friendship in one of Miami's best golf in Miami.
Rent clubs came w/o a pitch in one bag. The greens are just fair
This coarse has some interesting holes with the water.
The greens were very slow. I just couldn't get the ball to holes no matter how hard I putted it.
Good value-will play again
Overall course was in nice shape-I will play again during my stay here in Miami
Okay if there's no where else to play
Nice people, friendly atmosphere....driving range is pretty bad. Course really isn't in good shape. Pace of play was pretty slow the rangers were non existent.
This course is good.
Worthwhile playing. reasonable price and well designed maintained course.
Playing was good, however we did get bogged down as there was no one working the course once you leave the starter. We had a tee time (Thru You) but it meant nothing. They had us stuck behind a huge group of retirees from Canada that were super slow. We finally convinced the starter to allow to play the other course as we would have been there 6+ hours. They just let people go to the tee box whenever they get there instead of sticking to actual tee times.
Greens need work
The overall conditions on the East Course are nice but there is some wear on he greens. I would recommend this course for anybody, any handicap for an enjoyable round
