South Florida, a unique part of the state for sure. It is the only place in the whole country that has a tropical climate and the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles coexist – apart from that it also has some pretty amazing courses to try out. So, you call this sun-soaked place your home and want to find a local haunt, or you’re just visiting and wanting to play a few rounds, where can you go? Like the rest of the state, the south offers a range of different courses with different prices; let’s have a look at some of the best!
- The Club at Emerald Hill, Hollywood
Fast greens, great service, tropical atmosphere and surroundings; Emerald Hill ticks all the boxes. The layout is fun and it is a relatively short game at this semi-private club. It is well-known to be one of the top clubs in the south.
- Miami Beach Golf Club, Miami Beach
A public course with a solid reputation this can be challenging at times, but in the best way possible. The fairways here are stunning and the pace of the games is good. Striking surroundings and an old-school club vibe further add to this club’s charm.
- Deer Creek Golf Club, Deerfield Beach
A little on the more expensive side but certainly worth it, Deer Creek is exceptionally maintained and has a really great pace. It is a reasonable place to go for all types of golfers and skill levels, and if you go at slower times in the day, the price can be reduced. All in all, a solid club to enjoy all year round.
- Normandy Shore Golf Club, Miami Beach
Back to Miami Beach, and to another great club with an envious reputation. Excellent prices and not too challenging, this course is perfect for a relaxed round in well-kept surroundings with a peaceful atmosphere.
So there we have it, four of the best in the area. But don’t just take my word for it; treat yourself to one or all of them and make your own mind up!
