Miami Public Golf

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I’m gonna be spending mid Jan thru mid March in Coconut Grove Miami. While I’d like golf to be the focal point of my time there, I imagine I’ll get out at best once every few weeks. 
 

I’d love to get some recs on solid public courses that won’t break the bank. I saw that Doral has some in the $200-300 range, Crandon appears to be $200. I see some cheaper sub $100 stuff but it seems like course conditions may be rough. 
 

I’m good to do one of these nicer ones, but was hoping for some in the $100-150 range, or is that just not a thing? Or do I have to drive further out to Ft. Lauderdale / West Palm for this?

 

Appreciate the advice! 
 

PS. I am also down to play with folks if y’all wanna show me the good courses, I promise I don’t suck (mid-80s) and can sustain a conversation if needed 😂

Miami Shores and Miami Springs are the more budget-friendly spots. Conditioning may reflect that somewhat but both are cool places. Crandon may be pricy but it's worth playing. Frankly, playing later in the afternoon and finishing up while the sun sets over Biscayne Bay is the way to do it.

Right now, Dade Public Golf is absolutely atrocious. Sky high prices like you mentioned for Crandon. Springs may not be open as it is currently going thru a renovation. Do yourself a favor and drive north to broward or even Palm beach for better courses and value overall.

It's a damn shame. The best public course in Miami,  Melreese, fell victim to crappy City of Miami politics. They are going to build a soccer stadium that in a few years will be forgotten.

 

Miami Lakes Country club has a decent layout but the drainage of the back 9 is horrendous.

Trump Doral obviously nice but comes with a price.

Miccosukee Golf and Country club is further west and only in OK shape usually - this was my course growing up.

Palmetto is usually in terrible shape.

 

I echo the sentiment of going up to broward or palm beach county for golf.
