Back in South Florida for a company sales meeting.  We were able to spend two half days golfing. One day was at Normandy Shores, and that review will be coming soon.  Our second day was back at Miami Beach Golf Club and it did not disappoint.

Very tough track here with tons of water in dangerous, unseen places to rack up the penalties if you’re wayward. There are also a lot of different slopes to the fairways and rough areas that are unexpected in this flat part of the state, and the bunkers are complex and frequent. On top of that you have some challenging greens … it all adds up to a formidable day for shooting low scores.

The Review

Conditions are very good right now but the greens had recently been sanded, so that was interesting. They still rolled quite fast though and there are a lot of drop-offs and tough angles to navigate to keep the low putt count. But all in all they were in good shape with the exception of the sand which likely brought the rating down.

Fairways were in very good shape on every hole, as was the deep rough, but not deep enough to give too many headaches. Sand was in very good shape and found often throughout the day from our group – more on that later. Tee boxes (we played the blues) are in fine shape across the board.

We had five players so we went off three and two, then, after appraising the situation on a fairly busy Wed afternoon, decided to join up as a five-some as we were waiting already all day on the threesome in front of us, who also waited on a slower group in front of them. At no point did we ever fall behind and we were absolutely pushing the group in front of us all day. We all play fast, ready golf. So it was funny when a ‘marshal’ came out on the 8th tee box (we started the day on the back nine) to tell us the group behind us complained that we were a five-some and had to break back up into two groups. Absolute silliness.

Parting Thoughts

But once again, this is a super fun and challenging course to play with very good conditions to match. So if you’re in the area, don’t think twice. Just get out there and play it.
