Came here for a golf tournament. Course was in great shape and staff was friendly and helpful. Will golf here again when I'm in the area.
I visited the Diplomat Golf & Tennis Club this past week for a round of golf with some business associates.
Getting here is easy from Miami (where I live) as it's not far from I-95 on the Pembroke Rd exit. The resort entrance directs you to the main clubhouse where you can leave your clubs and utilize valet for $8 or self-park on the north side of the tennis courts. I self-parked as it's a not a far walk.
The clubhouse sports a beautiful interior with a very old-school traditional look to it. The pro-shop, where you can check-in, is straight in towards the rear. The full round was about $57 per person and included access and balls on the driving range and the practice green.
The course is pretty well maintained and manicured. There are a couple of greens that need a little tlc, but for the most part they were great. Our putts rolled pretty fast during our midday round. There were a number of tee boxes that needed some extra care as well.
Be prepared for quite a bit of water... to which I'm unfortunately a magnet. Pace of play during this particular round was pretty slow as we were waiting for a few groups ahead of us. I've played here before and that isn't the norm. It's golf... it happens. The beverage cart made the rounds 3 times which was enough.
And, don't be startled by all the gigantic lizards around the entire course. This is South Florida and we are essentially in what used to be the Everglades. I actually hit one with my 2nd shot from the fairway near one of the water hazards. Of course he deflected my ball right into the drink... because I'm a magnet for water.
Afterwards we headed to the bar in the clubhouse restaurant for 2 rounds of beverages and to finish our conversations / talk business. Service was't exactly speedy. But the drinks were well made.
Overall a great course in southern Broward County. Not far for us Miami-folk either. Definitely a course to add to your list if you're in Miami / Ft Lauderdale and have enough time to sneak in a round.
On Saturday March 26, 2016 My daughter Diana was married at the Diplomat Golf and Resort. It was amazing thanks to all the staff that made this wedding spectacular.
From the moment we signed the contract with the coordinator Ms. Lauren Ghiciac I knew we chose the perfect venue . Lauren was amazing. Made every step of planning my daughters Fairy Tale Wedding a dream come true.
Thank you Lauren and your amazing staff.
If I could give it no stars I would. Beautiful layout but course is in horrible shape. Only sand on tee boxes. Never had one smooth putt with all the divots spots on greens. We were so disappointed. For $90 you expect better conditions. Would not recommend at all.
I play here 1 or 2x a year, it is always in great shape and it has a lot of challenging holes. A few easy ones thrown in too so that you don't feel defeated. Nice location in Hollywood / Hallandale, just off the Intercoastal.
