The Country Club of Miami exemplifies the crossroads at which many local golf courses sit these days. Once a thriving private club, it is now a 36-hole facility home to two golf courses that have seen their fair share of challenges in recent years. Tons of deferred maintenance and understaffing has the courses in fairly rough shape around the edges, but with Golf Miami-Dade offices on site, there is a focus on rehabbing the Country Club. In particular, there is a little pitch-and-putt course in significant disrepair. This could be a tremendous community asset if improved.

The East is the shorter of the two Robert Trent Jones designs, and despite its length (just 6,300 yards from the tips), it can sneak up on you, with greens where short-siding yourself is an easy way to make bogey or worse. The drivable par-4 8th is a highlight, and the course finishes strong at 17 and 18. Here's hoping the future is better than the recent past at the Country Club of Miami.

Course condition was a little below average. Only a handful of greens is great shape. 1st green had a hole filled in with sand extra from the regular sand traps. Handful of tee box in great shape. Fairways was rough in multiple location.

The East course is in good condition. The greens are in excellent shape and are very fast. It is not a long course, but the very high winds made the course much more difficult. Some of the holes had a two or three club wind in our face. This is a good course for a good price in Miami.

This part 70 course has it's challenges. Played from gold tees which is still <6K yds so not that long. It is a mature public course in decent/acceptable, though not by any means, meticulous condition and the layout is good. Some of the greens are on the smaller side which makes it more difficult and some green areas have nice undulations (not just the green itself but surrounding area). The greens overall were in good/somewhat fast condition. All in all good fun for the price. Couldn't have asked for better pace of play as played as a twosome and no one in front nor in back of us. I shot 84 just above my handicap if that's any indication of the "fairness" of the course. I absolutely recommend the scrumptious chicken wings for après-golf in the dining room

With two 18 hole courses the CC of Miami is a really nice layout with plenty of availability. Nice greens & friendly staff along with a very convenient location that is easy to get to from anywhere in Miami. The price is fair for this municipal course with a nice sportsbar restaurant, driving range & chipping and putting greens.

I was in Miami for a family reunion and this course was close to the hotel. Great layout, the summer sizzler (sandwich and drink) was a good deal. The course was fair, lot's of traps and water. Staff was super friendly especailly Bill S. I would have like to have seen/played this course back in it's hayday. Although, the course is no Doral, you still have to hit every shot or you will end up with un-expected strokes. I will play this course again now that I know the layout.
