Worst course I’ve ever played

Course was in terrible condition. It was basically like playing on a desert. They also started running the sprinklers during us playing.

Convenient course

The course itself needs a lot of work. They loss 9 holes in the last hurricane. While over the winter I could see a slight improvement, much, much more needs to be done. To me the daily fee is way more than the course is worth, but better than driving to Key West.

This course lost 9 of their 18 holes several years ago to a hurricane. You must play the same nine twice with two different flags on the green.
The greens are tolerable. The course is pretty beat up. But it's the only course for 30+ miles. I got hooked up with another single at 8AM and we played in 2-1/2 hours.

Overall review

Greens where a bit slow but in good shape. Fairways where is good shape on 7 holes. #1 & #7 not good. Fairly short course for seniors but fun to play. Pro shop has beer and some snacks. Overall, not too bad for the money.

Having said that i really enjoyed the round and value. pace of play was excellent. the staff was over the top friendly. they are getting over a hurricane and you play the front nine twice. very good value for the money .

Marathon Golf

Course needs TLC, understandable due to location & weather. It was pretty dry considering recent rains. It’s a 9 hole course played twice with red & yellow flags. Hole 9/18 was challenging but fun. Easy going atmosphere. Pro shop & Club rentals had great price. Thought golf was high considering the layout & course condition but thoroughly Enjoyed our time.

Horrible course

It is advertising as 18 holes, but it is only 9 hole! To be repeated. Fairway are mostly dirt. Greens are fine. Staff nice but not present. Sorry I went there and paid like a premier course!

Still a cow pasture

New owners said in Sept 2013 they were budgeting $200,000 per hole for renovations. May 1, 2014 was to start construction and to improve the golf course..."so by 2015 season the recreational facilities are in place while we build the hotel and cottages." This is the 2017 season and none of this has even been started. Greens are greatly improved, however starting to have issues once again.

Improving Every Day

Sombrero CC was purchased and made public as Florida Keys Country Club.. New greenskeeper and staff are doing a great job. It is a fairly easy track but has its nuances and some testy par 3's. The attitude of the staff is great - you can tell that there is something new going on here. Great food in the Harbor View Café as well.

Story of 2 courses

If you live in the FL Keys there aren't very many places to play. Sombrero Country Club is now FL Keys Country Club. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The cart guys will even clean you clubs at the end of your round. You don't see that much at the lower end courses. At $45 for twilight, which starts at 2 during daylight savings time and 1 during standard time is not too bad. The front 9 and the back 9 are two totally different courses. The front nine is really rough. Some fairways are in really bad shape. However, of the two the front nine is more challenging as there are quite a few water hazards which are usually hidden by hedges. Watch our for #7 as there is a water hazard not marked by a hedge between 200 and 250 yds from the tee box depending on which tee you play. There are 5 tees to play from. The one good thing about the front 9 is that the greens are in pretty decent shape. On the back 9 it's a whole different story. Fairways are in great shape. The holes are not very challenging and pretty straight forward. The greens are very well taken care of as well. I usually play on Saturday and I rarely have a problem walking on and the pace of play is excellent. I usually can finish a round of 18 in 2.5 hours. With very few options for golf in the Fl Keys, I do enjoy playing the FL Keys CC. It's no Doral but is a fun course and relatively inexpensive. Oh one last thing, watch out for the iguanas. They like to get in the way when you putt sometimes.
