I've played this course several times. The course is in excellent shape and the staff is great. They really make you feel at home. They are building a new clubhouse and we are anxiously awaiting it's completion. While it is not the most scenic course I've ever played on in Florida, it is still pleasant and you really don't feel like your playing near an airport. It can be challenging if your an advanced golfer yet pleasant even for a beginner who at least keeps up. It's very convenient from downtown Miami also. I give it a thumbs up across the board..especially when the new clubhouse is finished...

The staff is nice and the course is kind of so-so. I think if would be okay if i played it a few more times, but did not know where the hazards were. Was helped by playing with a few regulars.
