This is a great little course. Very enjoyable with a truly nice design, good variety in all 18 holes.

Now with greens that are really in great shape.

I play it regularly as you can play it in three hours or less. A great place to sharpen your game

Standard course that is seeing a decline in maintainence. Most of the bunkers have been allowed to grow grass however the greens are in relatively decent condition. The layout is shorter with several challenging water shots. If I was retired and lived right next door it would be fun. $15 on golf Now was a fair price, but I'll probably look past this course in the future.

First time playing this course, and I loved it. The staff is great, especially Karen at the bar. I'd seen in previous review that the course need some TLC on the greens which a few did, bald spots, but they still played great and for the money ya couldn't go wrong. My brother and I played the course the following day and had just as much fun and will be returning in the future.

Cheap, quick rounds, even at full price. The absolute nicest staff of any course I've ever been to. I'm a beginner, and for a course that's never busy, with a couple of water hazards, but that I can play comfortably without spending a ton, and again, THE NICEST STAFF in Broward, I go as often as I can.

I hope they can make the greens nicer, almost all of them have bald patches, and the fairways aren't cut nice, but its a good place to just learn how to hit the ball, and have a beer.

With winter rates very high is S.FLA, this course stands out as a good value for the money. The course is not in the best of shape, but if your looking for a fun, good practice course to try and work on all your game, this course will suit your needs. Except for working on your sand shots, as for some reason there's no sand in the bunkers. Also the restaurant/bar area is fairly nice and priced reasonable.

This course receives little or no care. The "new" greens put in a few years ago are diseased already. The fairways and rough have no definitive border. The tee boxes are horrible and every sand trap lacked any sand but plenty of weeds. I play at Seven Bridges and my home course puts The Glades to shame....big time !!!
