This Course has come a long way with improvements the greens are running about 8.5 and the fairways are in very good shape. The last time I played this course it was in the process of recovery, it has done that. I recommend this course 90%. Its challenging and well laid out.

Don't bother. Course is in terrible shape from tees to greens.

Surprisingly challenging course, rivals the condition & challenge of more expensive courses. Definitely, one of the better muni courses in SoFla.

This is the worst course I have played in and around Miami. The tee boxes are mostly dirt, the fairways look terrible and are virtually indistinguishable from the rough, and the greens aren't green either. For the same or similar amount of money, there are much nicer courses around Miami (like Miami Springs or Melreese, for example). Don't waste your money. It's pretty cheap, yes, but you're not going to have much fun either.

Too expensive for a game unless you play twilight w/ summer rates.

The fairways of each hole are extremely close to gether with no tree line for separation. If you put a bad swing on anything you will probably end up in the next fairway over. Get to your ball quick so someone else doesn't play or pick it up.
The common player plays extremely slow and you may get stuck behind a foursome walking.
The driving range is a factor for 3 or 4 holes with range balls covering the fairways of two of them and the back ruff of the greens on the other two (try not to get hit).
For the $40+ dollar rate you can play Crandon, which is much better (upkeep, scenery, difficulty).

This is a great, cheap course for the average to intermediate golfer to play. Nice long and wide greens welcome all to it, but amenities arent that great. good golf course
