Florida Golf Course Review

Country Club of Miami 05 - East Course

General Information

The Country Club of Miami is a legendary golf facility that features 36 holes of championship golf rated 3 1/2 stars by Golf Digest Places to Play. Robert Trent Jones designed the layouts in 1961, and the country club soon became one of the favorite haunts of celebrities such as Jackie Gleason, Bing Crosby, and Bob Hope. Jack Nicklaus played his first professional tournament on the West Course, which also hosted the 1991 SeniorOpenQualifyingSchool.

The Club's first resident golf professional was none other than Arnold Palmer. The tradition of greatness continues on these recently renovated layouts, which together provide a nice one-two punch with a good variation in design. Besides the two 18-hole courses, the property features a full scale driving range and a spacious short game area that members and guests can utilize for work on putting, pitches and chips. The clubhouse includes a pro shop, restaurant/lounge and outing/event facilities that can accommodate up to 300 guests. PGA Instruction and junior golf programs are available.

The East Course is the shorter of the two layouts, with four sets of tees playing to distances and slopes measuring 6353 yards/124 slope, 6170 yards/120 slope, 5855 yards/118 slope and 5025 yards with a slope of 118 for women playing from the forward sets. Though not overly long, this course demands the golfer's attention as shot placement and strategy are necessary to score well. The landing zones are ample, but with over 50 strategically placed sand bunkers, plentiful trees and numerous water hazards protecting the smallish, slightly raised green complexes, players will have to earn their scores.

The rough is a combination of Bermuda and St Augustine, which makes landing on the short grass a priority. In addition to the range and putting greens, there also is a short game area where golfers can work on pitches and chips in excess of 50 yards. Visitors will not encounter manicured conditions or an expensive modern clubhouse - but they will find an interesting round of golf at reasonable rates. Green fees with cart during prime season top out at just over $60 at the CC of Miami, making this a good value.
