So im down in Miami and was thinking of trying Miami beach golf club. The rate this time of year is $100. I have played Biltmore and Crandon. Crandon is tough and great layout but this time of year greens were pretty beat up. Biltmore is okay. Has anyone played Miami Beach Golf Club, is worth the $100 or should I look elswhere? Ive heard so many negative reviews of the Blue Monster, so not really interested in dropping $$ to play there.

yeah the Beach is OK.  the condition is excellent.  Not as cool as Crandon but the condition of MB is way better.

Re Doral, the only thing about the blue is to play the course you see on TV.  But if you are on the beach its not really worth the drive.  I prefer the Silver (now called the McLean course).

FYI if you are planning 5 or 6 rounds in SE FL you may want to look at buying a Premier Card.  U play all these courses for $35 with the card.  I think it drop to $150 after July 1

never been a big Biltmore fan.  I think its boring but the condition is very good.

You know what course I like, is Miami Springs. It's got a lot of history and it's very beautiful. Greens are pretty busted for such a nice old course, though. But the price is right! About 30-40 bucks.

Thanks guys! Ive played Miami Springs and ti be honest, its not very good. A Muni at best. Greens were horrible. It was a dump... For an extra $20, I ended up playing the Club at Emerald Hills and that place is amazing! And tough!

    • Okay I played 18 early this morning. First one out. They sent us off the back, as they had a middle school (9 hole) tourney going off the back at 8AM. I finished my 18 holes and went over to see where the middle schoolers were, and how they were doing. I watched them play a couple of holes. Every last one of them dragged their driver up to the teebox. Not neccessarily off the teebox, but always onto the teebox.  So, I was curious and asked one of the parents there. "What's up with dragging the driver?" The parent told me the kids had been coached to do that. When asked why I was told that dragging the driver to the teebox covers the face in dew. The idea being the wet driver face will reduce spin off the face.  "Does that actually work?" I asked. "No idea, but they've been told to do it."  A million things went through my mind.  Firstly, Is that legal?  Secondly, if its not legal, what kind of coach teaches middle schoolers to break the rules? I would think at middle school level you are just trying to get them to enjoy the game and play by the rules.   
    • Love it!  Is that copyrighted or can I use that, too?
    • Almost played well today. Hit snaphooks off the tee on the finishing holes on both sides. On 9, hit a snap hook onto the 10th tee box. On 18 hit a snaphook OB, had to take the dreaded 3 from the tee.  I should mention the greens were freshly sanded this morning. I was the first to play on many of them. You could see neat little sand trails everywhere I putted. 
    • I'm guessing whatever's in the USGA app would be totally legal.  Otherwise what a mess that'd be...
