Featured Golf Course Review:
California Golf Club -- Great Value
Review by: Paul In my experience, California Golf Club offers a great value for the recreational golfer. I paid twenty-five dollars for a morning round (in season) and was very pleased with the course. The fairways may not be in peak condition, but the greens are fast and consistent. The fairways are typically Florida flat, but trees line almost every hole, making tee shots challenging, and recovery shots inevitable. The most unusual feature at California is the last three holes, which seem to have been lifted off of a TPC course and dropped on North Miami. Mid-handicappers should love this course.

Hollywood Beach Golf & Country Club -- Needs help
Review by: rcf Hollywood Beach Golf Course is one of the oldest courses in South Florida, and like the neighborhood surrounding it, the course is showing its age. Your golfing experience at this course can change from week to week based on maintenance issues. The greens are the course’s worst feature. Many greens suffer from patches of spotty and dead grass that make putting less than enjoyable. Another problem on this course is that it does not drain well. In the Florida rains many of the fairways can become very soggy. The 90 degree rule is the norm here, and during times of heavy rain the course has even shortened par four’s to par three’s in order to avoid playing the soggy fairways. In optimum conditions the course can be great fun to play. It is a bomber’s course, with many straight away holes and wide open fairways. There are a few water hazzards, and on your drive two of the holes (4 and 5) challenge you to carry a canal that cuts across the fairway. For avid golfers who simply like to play, this course can be a “go to” place for an inexpensive round. If you are planning on playing this as part of your Florida vacation, look elsewhere until they plunk some money into the facility.
