Great Course! A Must Play when in Miami!!!
Very challenging! Great views with a mixed array of difficulty. An 8.5 out of 10 on condition of course. Enjoy one of Miami Premiere Courses!!

Very Disappointing..........Greens had been topped dressed with sand and nothing mentioned on GOLFNOW.
After all I read about the course I was very disappointed. First the young lady in the Pro Shop needs some manners. She was talking to me then got a phone call and just left me standing there, till someone else showed up. No excuse me, sorry nothing, she was a piece of work.
The caddie was great and very helpful. The greens had just been topped dressed with sand and didn't hold anything. Very hard and very tough to putt on. No wonder no one was playing.
So after a 3 hr drive to play one of the feature courses in the Miami area, could honestly say it was a waste of time. Couldn't wait to get off the course. Had time to think about the poor experience on the 3 hr drive back to Cape Coral.
The course appears tough enough when the conditions are prestine, they weren't today............thank goodness the Fore Caddie was good company.

Nice views but lacks on maintanaice.
The overall conditions are not that good. Fairways are not that fair when it comes to the grass...

.beautiful but tough
Course is well maintained with good tees, fairways, and greens. Conditions are behind reproach. Fees are a bit high but in keeping with what they offer.
My only problem is the difficulty of the course. I am a 15 handicap and it is too tough to allow for an enjoyable round. A 10 or below handicap should enjoy this course or maybe masochists.

This course is very nice and well maintained !
Very challenging course depending of the tee box you play and the wind condition.
Green are in top chape condition and very fast.
Caddy was very good for the information given for every shot including on the green.

course and staff were exceptional
Our fore caddy, Dillon made our golf experience very special and enjoyable. Every hole was different with great scenic views. Can't wait to return!

good course in search of management
Could be a premier course but has not been allowed to be what it should be. Great layout. Practice area horrible shape. Staff unfriendly.

Great course for a better price!
Other than some of the tee boxes were a bit ratty, the overall course is a great layout, very challenging, especially when the wind blows (which seems on Key Biscayne, it's always!) The price at $49/person is a great value. For a local, it is annoying that they require fore caddies (tho after 1pm it's optional)...but they do a great job reading greens, raking traps, putting sand in divots, all of which helps pace of play. It was car path only when we played, which probably keep golfers away, but we did finish the round in less than 4:30 which is average for Crandon Park. Lastly, I was diappointed the clubhouse refused to give the other cart (who had a guy with a bad knee and hip) a handicap flag so he didn't have to do cart path only. He started dragging toward the end of the round, althought he wind was really blowing hard after 4pm.

Nice golf course.Realy liked the greens.
Enjoyed the course for the discounted rate I paid.I regret booking it again in advance at double the fee.Not worth it.

Super Course if you can get a GolfNow Deal - its fantastic
Course is in great shape, and very difficult from the tips. The wind was blowing a nit that day, and I assume that was normal. No homes on the course, so it feels very relaxing and like the way golf should be. A ton of water comes into play on many of the holes. Greens were not lighting quick, so I left my first 5 putts short...and less break than you may read. Hit them firm at the cup.
I am def. going back ! If I can get it under 80Bucks.

My Favorite Course in the Area
The design of the course is imaginative, sufficiently challenging and in all round great shape. However the feature which differentiates this course from almost all the others in the area is the setting. Holes played adjacent to the water with some wonderful sea views to a distant Miami. No house lined fairways. Plenty of wildlife ( including the odd gator ). A really nice golfing experience. The Golf Now Hot Deal offers excellent value.

With the hot deal special it was à great day.
This course is very nice and challenging. The view on some holes is fabulous. Hard course for a 18 handicap.

Beautiful views and wildlife.different to other Miami area courses I have played.
Great value green fee on Golfnow.
Quality course in good condition and played in under 4 hours.

WOW is all that needs to be said....
This has to be one of the best courses in South Florida.
It is very challenging even from the forward green tees and I would suggest that you play from a yardage that you feel very comfortable with. The views and wildlife are spectacular and one should look around while on the course and enjoy them.

Nice course. Could be even better if the course condition were a little bit better.

Spectacular scenery combined with a great layout
From the very first tee, the scenery is immaculate with pristine fairway conditions and greens. There is more water than land on this course but each hole is different. The greens were slow (9.5), but still ran true and the meandering cart paths which take you through mangrove swamps and out across hills and fairways make the experience even more enjoyable than the golf. I would highly recommend coming to Crandon to experience this course. Recently under new management, he even promised that the greens would get faster soon and the pro shop updated further.

A must play...breathtaking views!!
I absolutely love this course. Since this is peak season, the regular green fees are $192, but I was able to get a tee time for $41! You cannot beat this price, especially for this course. The greens were in excellent condition and the fairways were pristine. The best part about playing this course are the views you see of Miami....absolutely breathtaking! Looking forward to playing one more time before my vacation ends.

Great course with really helpful staff
We had been looking forward to playing Crandon all our holiday and we were not let down.
We started with a club sandwich and drink which was great value and wonderful served by friendly staff; also the members in the clubhouse were friendly and welcoming.
This continued in the shop, with staff who helped me choose the best tees to play from to the buggy master who did not rush us to start.
The course is fantastic layout in excellent condition and most of all on the final hole the view of Miami across the bay - stunning.
We had a great day and would recommend Crandon with any reservation at all.

Very nice course. Some unique holes with great views of the city in the background. Several of the par 3's are spectacular. Since you are on an island, it's quite windy, so add at least one club going into the wind. If you hit a high trajectory shot, better make sure you have plenty of golf balls. The starters are very helpful and keep everything flowing. I will play this course again the next time in Miami! The only downside was the wait at the turn for ANYTHING to eat or drink. The food was excellent, but it just took way to long! Also, with Miami traffic being like the time trials at Indy, I would recommend the Rusty Pelican, which is on the island, for an early dinner and let the rush hour traffic calm down.
