Abbey Course At St. Leo University, The -- needs work, and lots of it
Review by: Joel Panabaker The course is little more than a cleared patch of grass mowed on occasion. The course has very few redeeming features and even fewer memorable holes (#'s 5 - 8 are the best stretch and would be average on any other course). It is what you'd expect if you and a group of guys owned a little farm land and decided to build a golf course. Trees form the majority of the hazards on this course and even they are sparse, used mostly to line the borders between the zillion fairways that run parallel to each other. Undoubtably the worst greens I have every played on. Ever. Anywhere. And these were mowed! Last time the greens had two inch grass on them. I don't rememeber a single sand trap. What do you expect for $16 primetime and $10 off season? The worst part is, there is potential here - all's it would take is a little money and a lot of work...

Granada Golf Course -- Oasis in the Jungle
Review by: Guy A pleasant easy 9 hole course set right in the heart of the Gables. The fairways are wide and greens are for the most part generous and hittable in regulation. My wife is a novice to intermendiate player, and when we take our clubs to Miami this is a must play for us. A nice couples course. No one will be pushing you to play fast. Also catch a hamburger at the club house at Burger Bob's. In a town where the food is so cuban and so great, it is still nice to get the best burger in town and a coke after your round. Plenty of local color at Bob's, most older and most old money Miami. Fun people watching over lunch. Eleven year until I retire to South Miami, so many more visit to the Granada while I visit family in the Miami area.
