The layout of the course is interesting, challenging and features perfectly manicured lush, rolling fairways. You'll be glad you experienced this excellent combination of hole designs and truly great golf. Water comes into play on 10 holes.

Beautiful Course

Beautiful Course, layout and design are really nice. The weather was not cooperative as it rained off and on throughout, but I will play here again. One of the top 3 courses I've played in Florida and I have played some really nice courses here.

Long Course. If it’s your first time grab a course book

Bring out your inner Bryson for this course. I play from 1 short of tips. But, I found myself with a lot of long irons into really difficult greens to hit. Not your standard driver wedge /driver 9 into greens. Undulation was cool for a Florida course where typically things are more or less flat. Elevated green with the Rock in the back was also pretty neat. Island green (which they should advertise more) and a lot of over water carries make focus a premium on this course. Shot 86 with 2 penalties. The driving range is nice. Grass a little long but it was wet so may be the culprit of conditions. The greens were quick not extremely receptive but rolled mostly true. Fairways were nice. As noted in the review header if you haven’t played here. Get a course book. Weird green shapes and depths and water peaks into landing areas in a few places that are unexpected from the tee or fairway

Great Course and Great Value

I’m in Miami on vacation and this is the 2nd time I’ve played this course this week. It’s a well designed and challenging course and I really enjoyed playing it. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The course is in great shape and gives you several different looks that force you to think more about the appropriate shot to get on or close to the greens without ending up in the water or another undesirable place. It was also a great value for the dollar!

$$$

Normal round is $80, with the premier card they charged us $60… that means that they are charging $60 for using a cart as from April to November the premier card should only require you to pay cart fee. They also don’t advertise this price anywhere.

Unprofessional and poorly managed course.

Staff was rude, pace of play was ridiculously slow, and the maintenance crew was very in the way. Overall had a terrible experience, it took 6 hours to play 18 due to the course being so packed. The maintenance crew was out cutting grass and blowing off fairways, which normally is fine, but it was on a Friday which was a bit weird and they would not stop or pause for you to play through. They got uncomfortably close while I was trying to hit and one of the guys on the lawnmowers ran over my ball after my shot, that he also did not get out of the way for. The greens were terrible and the staff was very rude. I would not recommend this course to my worst enemy.
