The Six Best Golf Courses in Ft. Lauderdale

To help you find your golf haven, we’ve picked our top six favorite public golf courses. Try them all and let us know which ones you like best!

Coral Ridge Country Club

This 18-hole championship course features waterfront vistas and meticulously manicured grounds. The country club itself opened in 1954 and is a favorite with locals and visitors alike. The club also includes 11 tennis courts, a swimming pool, and three restaurants.

Grande Oaks Golf Club

Perhaps the Grande Oaks’ biggest claim to fame is that it was the site where the movie Caddyshack was filmed. Originally called the Rolling Hills Country Club, it was one of South Florida’s first championship courses. Since it opened in 1959, it has been a favorite course for many famous people, including Jackie Gleason, Joe Namath, and George C. Scott.

Davie Golf Club

Known for its undulating greens, the Davie Golf Club is a challenging 18-hole course designed by Arnold Palmer’s senior golf course architect himself. Formerly known as the Arrowhead Golf & Tennis, the course opened in 1973 but underwent a major re-design in 2008, resulting in the unique lakes and rolling slopes you see today.

Jacaranda Golf Club

Considered by many to be in the top three of all golf courses in South Florida – including private clubs – Jacaranda Golf Club is considered semi-private. However, visitors can take advantage of lessons, golf vacations, and various golf packages to suit any skill level. The club features two courses, two restaurants, and is host to several championship events.

City of Lauderhill Golf Course

Located right in the middle of Broward County and just off of I-95, the City of Lauderhill Golf Course is an 18-hole executive-length course that has been delighting local golfers since 1968. Located in the middle of the city, it’s easy to enjoy a few rounds in the afternoon, giving you a respite from the office and making your meetings a little more interesting.

Colony West Country Club

Rated in the top 50 public courses in America by Golf Digest, the Colony West Country Club is an 18-hole course that is open to the public. Currently recently underwent a major facelift and reopened last fall with a brand-new clubhouse, cart barn, and a stunning lake expansion.
