Crandon Golf Key Biscayne
A pleasant experience
I played this course with my wife and had a delightful caddy . He helped get us through slow groups and added to the experience. The course is a good layout and has some great views BUT the greens were awful, the bunkers need attention and some of the tees were in serious need of a mower.. Had I been paying the full rate I would have been seriously upset

It is jewel of a course.
I have wanted to play this course for years. Got a very good deal on GolfNow so booked it for me and a buddy of mine.
Course was on the wet side on some of the fairways and underwater on some of the cart paths, but who can fault management for that. Each hole served up a special challenge that was exhilarating. The course layout amongst the wetlands is superb. 18th hole view looking back over the bay to downtown Miami was picturesque.
Bunker mania comes into play on a number of the fairways. I counted a total of seven on a few of the holes. Most all of the greens are well guarded that way too. Made for interesting play.
If there is one criticism, it would be the length between the white and the green tee boxes. One being too short while the other being a tad too long. My preference would be a distance between the two, about 6,000 to 6,200 yards, though not a deal breaker by any means.
I plan to go back and the sooner the better before it gets crowded when season kicks in and a course like this command a much higher price and gets very crowded .

An OK Course
Slow pace of play and course in poor condition. Very scruffy! Several holes restricted to cart path only.
Very disappointed considering the price.
Beverage service slow and no marshall on course to check times and keep people moving.
We passed a 3-ball at the turn but then sat behind a 4-ball for the rest of the round. Had to wait on every shot.

Crandon is a beautiful course for a muni. There is abundant wildlife and it is usually pretty well maintained. My only real complaint is that the pace of play is almost unbearably slow, especially during the high tourist season. If you've never played it, I highly recommend trying it out, as it provides an entertaining afternoon and a challenging course.

We started out 20 minutes behind a foursome. We caught them at the third hole and were stuck behind them the rest of the day. There was no Marshall on the course to dictate speed of play or courtesy. We were a twosome that was playing faster then the four older players in front of use. Two further compound things we had a twosome catch us that became impatient and hit into us, almost striking us. Again, no Marshall. Also, the beverage cart personnel had no idea of golf etiquette. We were on the tee box to tee off on a couple holes but had to stop and wait as the cart ether passed behind or in front of us.
I have played this course twice this summer. The course is in good condition and nice to play. But the absence of a Marshall when it is posted in many places that playtime is strictly enforced is disheartening.

Great Course, Slow Play
Crandon is a beautiful Florida course with lots of palm trees, water hazards, and iguanas! I would have given 5 stars but the pace of play was too slow.
