Orangebrook Country Club in Hollywood boasts two 18-hole courses, the East and the West. The golf courses are about equal in difficulty but each offers a different set of challenges. The West Course was added over 20 years after the original East Course, which was built in the 1930s. This newer layout has more water hazards and there are also several massive bunkers treacherously lurking about the greensides. The challenging elements are nicely balanced by wide-open, player-friendly fairways and small greens with few breaks. The golf course is overall very forgiving but it offers interesting risk-reward opportunities that will appeal to players of all skill levels. In addition to the two golf courses, Orangebrook C.C. boasts extensive practice facilities that include a spacious lighted driving range with distance markers and a practice bunker.

The overall fairway and green conditions of this course has improved greatly over the past year except for lingering hurricane damage. They could charge more if they were to care enough to remove hurricane debris from a year ago. Ball washers have NO WATER and water coolers need a good cleaning. Bathrooms are disgusting. They have lost hundreds of trees over the past 10 years and have not replaced a single tree which would add shade to the tee areas, difficultly and beauty to both East and West sides. It's a shame that many visitors to South Florida play here in the winter and the management doesn't make it a day to remember even if their game does not!

Played course on 4th July which would explain lack of food service. Course was not in great condition but we paired up with an American couple and had an enjoyable round. I would certainly play the course again.

Named after a spring discovered in a former orange grove, this 36-hole, Hollywood track built in the mid-1930's once hosted a tournament in the 1940's that drew pioneer female stars Babe Zaharias and Louise Suggs. Nowadays, Orange Brook is a ragged, but comfortable, old courses that attracts large throngs of French Canadians in the winter and smaller crews of assorted locals in the summer. While the fairways and bunkers were decent enough on the West course, the greens were predictably bad, often grainy or spongy. Most annoying was the uncut rough, which swallowed four balls. On the plus side, the West layout presented interesting challenges, at times, particularly where water came into play. Sent out as a solo player, I leapfrogged foursomes and walkers for six holes, before eventually teaming up with two others. I did circle back to play the first six holes solo. As I would have paid anywhere from $7 to $10 for a bucket of balls, the $11 and change paid to work on my non-putting game for 18 holes was most priceworthy. One note: There was no beverage cart, but a few water stations. Since the front nine does not trail back to the clubhouse bar, make sure you get plenty of water at the bar before teeing off.

Good thing about this course is that it seems to progressively get better every time I go play there. Fairway grasses are not perfect but it does not justify complaints. Greens are a little bit slow but it look nice. I'd go there again to a catch a freshly cut green.
