The pace of play was very slow which contradicts some comments on this site but it was not the main issue about golf etiquette. There was a group of drunk and noisy people playing. There where screaming in their golf car and on the course.

One of the employees told us that they are members and that the restaurant is pleased to sell them alcohol.

In serious golf clubs, this king of behavior is prohibited and prosecuted. Here, it is permitted...

I'm a single digit handicapper, I travel a lot and I have never seen such an attitude anywhere on a golf course.

For a quiet golf moment, forget the Diplomat!

My first time to this course and south Florida. Arrived about a half hour early and there was a threesome going out of which they asked if I wanted to go right away. Had a good time with these gentlemen. The pace of play was awesome. We zipped around. I really like the layout and the course was in great shape. I will be back to the area and would definitely play here again!!!

This course had a nice layout to it. The holes were challenging and there was a lot of water hazards on almost every hole. If the water didn't get you, the sand would. The greens were in real good shape. the course was maintained and the staff was excellent

Fun course to play. Fairways and greens in terrific shape. First time out it's hard to know when to go for it and when to lay up. You really have to play it a 2nd time to score well. A lot of water that shouldn't come into play....but usually does. No houses to worry about.

Look for "Barky" after the round to take care your clubs. Whether you had a good round or a difficult round, he'll make sure you leave The Diplomat in a good mood!

One of the great old school FL clubs allowing daily fee play. Beautiful clubhouse and grounds. Now managed by Troon Golf. Driving range tee area poor condition (its been dry in So. Fl), chipping green tiny and poor shape. Course layout interesting, variety of holes, on the short side (6500yds tips) all in top condition. Definitley a course to play in Ft Lauderdale area.

Played this course for the first time and it was a great experience. Excellent layout, pace was good, and the condition of the course was good.

Will definitely be back.

Played from the gold tee and that was maybe a little short.

Great staff - very friendly and helpful. Play at times seemed slow - luckily many people in front of us only played 9 holes. Nice layout, but it is a resort course which means pace of play could be a challenge. We finished in about 4 1/2 hours but only because we merged with the foursome in front of us...

Would play again if the price is good....

Have played here a number of times. This course is always in great shape. Rounds generally take less than 4 hours. The green fee includes the use of the practice facility. The range, chipping area and putting green are excellent. You can hit from natural grass rather than mats. Most friendly staff too.
