The Senator Course at Shula's Golf Club is a classic style course located in the serene town of Miami Lakes. Sprawling over 500 tree shaded acres, players of all skill levels will be challenged by 18 holes, Par 72 championship course. Known as one of Miami's best Championship Golf Courses, The Senator Course is unlike the typical hotel golf course. Originally designed of Bill Watts in 1962 and later updated in 1998 by nationally recognized Golf Course Architect Kipp Schulties, is the perfect destination for great golf.

There used to be a pretty decent par-3 course here with 18 holes. It closed a few years ago after a hurricane damaged the course and they did not perform repairs. Some listings of par-3 (Executive) courses still list it, but it is not open.

MM3808, Thank you for your comments regarding the former Par 3 Executive course. Hurricane Wilma did major damage to the course back in 2005. All efforts were put towards repairing our Championship Senator Course. The course is currently is great shape with new Champion Bermuda greens. I hope that you will visit us soon.

We haven't played a whole round but the course has gotten very abandoned. The driving range is in deplorable conditions. It closes and opens whenever they want. They used to have a par 3 but no one know what happened to it. It is a shame they let this place go...

Greetings Lalalove, Thank you for your comments. I am not sure when you played with us last. During the month of July, our golf course received a total of 24 inches of rain. This record setting amount forced us to close the driving range and golf course a few times in July. Our golf course has dried out and everything... More

Yummy the best meat ever, fresh, nice cut, very good cook as you wish, the side orders are delicious and huge, more than enough for two people. The soufflé is the best.

Quite challenging course. One par 3 a bit too near the highway. Lots of water hazards. Bring lots of balls with you. The buggies could be equipped with GPS.
