The highlight of this Karl Litton course is the three-story Southern plantation-style mansion that serves as the clubhouse. Devlin Von Hagge originally designed it. The course has been voted as a Top 100 women-friendly course in the U.S. The course is known for its excellent condition of the fast greens and contoured fairways. Palm trees add a tropical feel to this target-oriented course.

Running out of time

Take your swing at Carolina as soon as possible. My friend and I were told the course is going under on July 8. That likely explains the so-so conditions on the greens. There are some nice holes on the course but maintenance isn't a priority right now.

course will not be around for long

I have not played here for over 10 years. Every part of the course has been neglected. I would guess that this will be one of the next South Florida courses to close and be sold to build homes.

WHAT A DUMP (about to close)

The layout of the course is nice. Challenging holes and greens......thats where the compliments end. This place is a dump. Tee boxes are garbage. Fairways are garbage. Greens barely have any grass on them. The place is being sold to a developer and management doesn't put a dime into the course. I wouldn't go back even if the round was for free.....thats what bad shape it is in. Please......dont look at the price and think its a good deal. The course is a dump and youll regret wasting your time. How a "hot deal" on GolfNow is $25 is mind boggling. This place should be $2 max for a round.

Fun at Carolina Club

Great pricing through golf now for a course that was fun to play. For a course that is supposedly closing in a year don't miss out on playing this one. Entire course in good shape. It is certainly kept well. Staff was friendly. Not a course for a beginner. All holes are challenging and the layout is awesome. I highly recommend it. Looking forward to playing it again and hopefully play it better now knowing what to expect.

Disappointed in course

We played Carolina two years ago and loved the course and conditions. This year I have to say we where disappointed, greens where in rough condition, patchy and we even saw grubs.

Horrible

Horrible experience. Rude staff, decided to quit due to pace of play. You have to pay for your round through bullet proof glass. The attendant wouldn’t let us pay for our 2:04 PM tee time until exactly 2 PM when the rate we arranged for was available.

Lots of water

A fairly difficult course as water is in play on most holes. Depending on weather the wind is blowing it can become very difficult. Having played this course before I was disappointed in the condition of the greens. The snack bar at the turn is well-stocked and the upstairs bar has a great veranda overlooking the course. I found it cheesy having to pay for a cup of ice and tap water! Would definitely recommend depending on the price.

Disappointed in the condition of the course

We played this course quite a few years ago & we looked forward to playing it. The course was in terrible shape from what we expected. The course has great holes & in the past we always loved playing here. When we were done we found out that they are selling the property so that explains why they are not working on the course.

Average to poor conditions but still a good value

Conditions are pretty poor. Greens are in rough shape and fairways are fairly spotty as well. Makes sense that this is a sub $50 weekend course, but I would expect it to be in better condition. Much worse than it was last year at this time. I will say, however, it is very much playable and a good value. Very accommodating staff and nice facilities. Hopefully conditions change for the better heading into the non-Canadian season.

every course is for sale when investors throw outrageous amounts of cash at the owners. golf in broward county will inevitably be gone, they just cant compete with pbcgolf and their courses that have no homes on them. j&d could turn this course around, even if they were to sell, it would take years for the county to re-zone this land
