Donald Ross designed Miami Shores Golf Club in 1949. Since then, the course has had the front greens renovated in the 70s and the back nine's were updated in the 90s, but the best features of the original design have been carefully preserved. The municipal golf course covers 130 acres but it is seemingly short at just over 6,200 yards, a characteristic of older courses. The classic layout has fairways that are straight and offer some room for error, but there are stands of mature trees situated throughout the course that golfers will have to contend with. If you are used to playing longer, more modern layouts, Miami Shores provides an interesting contrast that is also a challenging but fair test. The course's affordability is also an appealing factor.

Kathy

Restaurant and bar was not open at 3pm on a Saturday. We were playing 18 holes and a couple cut in front of us slowing down our play.

We have been here before and bar and restaurant are great. Disappointed they were closed today.
Course should not allow people to start on #10 unless no one is playing through.

Cheated our of 9 holes

The front 9 was wide open but ran into a logjam on #10 with leagues. The should not have sold a 4:12 tee time for 18 holes with leagues on every hole. No apology from the staff.
