Type Public
Located just off the beautiful Gold Coast, the Diplomat Golf and Tennis Club sprawls across a lush terrain covered with thousands of coconut and Royal palms. Towering banyans provide shade throughout the golf course as well. Although it is a public course, it has the look and feel of a private club. It has been a staple of the south Florida community since opening in 1957. The layout features interesting hole designs that incorporate raised greens framed by contoured mounding and more than 75 strategically placed sand bunkers. The water features are hard to miss seeing as they come into play on all but two holes. The golf course is a challenge but not too intimidating for less experienced players. The beautiful scenery alone will be well worth the round.

Disappointing!

The course in the past was always one of my favorites. The last few times have been very disappointing, especially this time.

Poor greens, fairways, rough, plenty of spots without any grass at all, even the practice range was in the poorest conditions I've ever seen.

No warnings of the conditions prior to booking, once we got to the first tee they mentioned they were improving the course, unacceptable. Lesson learned, it will be the last time I play this course. Don't waste your time and money, not what it used to be.

Was expecting more

I play weekly in south FL and got a hot deal here so gave it a try. The course was maybe a notch above average. The starter and proshop staff were pleasant, I certainly would not say they were warm and friendly. I will say that the ranger was very friendly, he was doing his best to keep people moving but also spacing people out on the course. I always feel you can judge a course by tee boxes and greens. The tee boxes were average to below average, angled and wobbly, you struggle to find flat area and a decent spot on part 3's. The greens were good, rolling consistently but plenty of ball marks all over. I feel they capitalize on thier name and provide at best an average experience. There are plenty of other courses I would play before this, better values and better conditions.

Good Deal off season through golf now

Very nice drive up and club house. Self parked after dropping off my bag. cart was ready and nicely stocked with ice and water. Rainy day so no issues with waiting. Greens aerated. Overall very good experience and one of the nicest public courses/facilities you can get on in Broward area. Would play again if the rate is right.

Great course

Always enjoy playing golf at the Diplomat! Beautiful place, challenging and fun, good condition. Greens had been cut and aerated recently so putting was not ideal on the day we played. Huge practice area. Very friendly staff.

Tough course, but worth playing

I love and hate this course. Love it because it is well maintained, beautiful to look at and some of the holes make you shake on the tee box, greens very quick but fair. Hate it because simple shots end up in the water and it gets in your head. I am a solid low 80's player on most courses in Miami but walk out into this and hope to break 100. Blue monster and crandon the only other courses in Miami I play that I feel the same way about. Strange that at $80 for a early weekend tee time this course isn't booked out, always able to get in it and I am happy about that..service good, course ranger full of good advice and tolerance when you try to take his advice and fail. Playing again tomorrow and I am going to own this course...
