Hi there

I am going on a buddies trip to Florida in October/November next year. After a couple of days in Orlando we are going to go to Miami, but which courses would you recommend there? I am looking for 150 - 250 USD green fee courses.

Won't mind driving 60 to 90 minutes to get to the course, if needed.

Thanks

Doral. Book well in advance though. Also, at that time of the year you can get some decent stay and play package deals as well.

Miami is not the city to have a budget, with that being said the Blue Monster will run around 200 after 1pm, the other 3 courses at Doral might better for you but expect all courses in the area to be crowded.  Check out Turnberry in Aventura just north of Miami. Emerald Hills in Hollywood is a really good track.

Blue Monster is fun but obviously overpriced, but the other courses there are fun as well.  I can remember their names but the Red course was fun and cheaper than Blue monster, the silver course was in renovations when I went, and I didnt play the white course.  I think in that Doral area you should be able to find some great rounds.  As mentioned before they have some packages that make the golf more affordable.

just my opinion, however, it m be the worst golf city I've ever traveled to.   That being said, South Beach is just so wonderful, oh my!

Grizz06,  I agree, which suprised me considering location, climate, and apparent money.

Crandon Park is a very good option.

What about a trip up to PGA National?
