Historic Miami Shores Country Club offers a classic 18-hole championship golf course that is the home of a vast array of sub-tropical wildlife and vegetation. The Club has been host to a number of prestigious events including the Florida State Open.

Celebrities such as Bob Hope, Joe DiMaggio, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead and Lee Trevino have graced the lush fairways.

The front nine calls for precise approach shots into small well bunkered, contoured greens. The incoming nine calls for well-placed tee shots.

This Red Laurence designed course offers other amenities like a 120 seat lounge with a panoramic view of the golf course and lighted driving range, six clay tennis courts, three hard courts, swimming pool, extra large men's and ladies' locker rooms and a staff that understands the meaning of service.

Decent course but better course layouts in Miami. Very difficult to find the next hole in many locations on the course. Train tracks adjacent to the course with frequent train runs near the course. Golf maintenance crews had very little respect for the players. The sand traps are poorly raked probably because the rakes provided are in terrible shape. Many better choices and better values in Miami

The course was in good shape, especially the greens. We got $57 special greens fees at 11:30 which is good deal for area. No range availability on Wednesday’s. People are not very friendly or accommodating

This course has the best greens in Miami except for Trump Doral’s 4 courses. The rough is kind of rough and the fairways are fairly consistent and decent. You come here for the layout and the greens though. Hands down. The bunkers are consistent.

The course is well maintained and just challenging enough to satisfy all levels of player. The carts are clean and run well. The staff is helpful and courteous. The restaurant has a good variety of menu items and the food tastes good.

The bar is well stocked and the service is good.

I had just landed in Miami that morning. Played 18 holes as a single, they paired me up with another single. We had a fun round of golf. The greens were extremely fast. The layout was a little confusing as far as hole direction. The grounds were well manicured and the rough was not too penal. I would play this course again.

Very slow going. 5 1/2 hour round made what should have been an enjoyable round rather frustrating. Finished in the dark. Teed off 20 mins after scheduled time. No doubt the time of the year contributed to that.

The course presents its own challenge with elevated greens and surrounding slopes. The greens are better than average with their speed and conditioning. There were several soft spots on the course because of rain. Will play this course again & hopefully the pace will be better.
