MIAMI SHORES GOLF CLUB (305-795-2366)
Florida Golf Course Review
Miami Shores Golf Club is a traditional Red Lawrence parkland design that features understated bunkering along a gently rolling terrain that is home to a
vast array of majestic oaks, sub-tropical wildlife and vegetation. Water comes into play on 8 holes, including many that necessitate drives over the wide
Biscayne Canal that traverses the property, and 69 sand bunkers dot the layout. Manatee sightings in this canal are not unusual.
Located just 15 minutes for downtown Miami, Miami Beach or from the Airport, Miami Shores provides golfers with the opportunity to experience a beautiful
layout for extremely reasonable rates. The historic setting includes the Flagler Train Line, which runs through the golf course. A bonus - there are no residential properties along the layout!
On property are a grass range with target areas, plus a practice green for putting and chipping. The clubhouse features a pro shop stocked with clothing
and golf accessories, plus a full service restaurant/lounge. Changing areas equipped with showers are available for men and women. Miami Shores is
known for its expertise in hosting golf tournaments, outings and special events. A variety of rooms can be set up to host meetings, business functions and
golf outings of various sizes - of up to 288 people.
The golf course provides four sets of tees that play to a par 71, and range in distances and slopes from 6373 yards/122 slope, 6094 yards/120 slope,
5793 yards/115 slope and 5442 yards - with a slope rating of 122 for women. Rated 3 stars by Golf Digest Places to play, Miami shores is a perfect course
for the intermediate player, as it features fairly open fairways with wide landing areas, and small, fast putting surfaces. The design includes 4 par threes
and 3 par fives, with the remainder of the layout consisting of reasonably lengthed four pars.
There are yardage blocks on the fairways at 100, 150 and 200 yards (plus 250 on par fives), and color coded flags indicate the day's pin locations. Great
location, competitive pricing and very good conditioning make this one of the area's best golfing values.
