There are two 18-hole golf courses available at Orangebrook Country Club in Hollywood, the East and the West. Built in the 1930s, the East Course is the club's original layout. While its design may be more traditional, it is just as much of a challenge as the newer West Course. The East has fewer water hazards but there are large bunkers strategically placed throughout. There are some tricky holes included in the design but there are also many player-friendly features as well including wide-open fairways and generous landing areas. Players can get their practice in on the large, lighted driving range that has both distance markers and a practice bunker. Orangebrook C.C. offers not one but two player-friendly but challenging rounds, making it popular amongst locals for being one of the area's best values.

The greens are in excellent shape.. maybe a bit on the dry side but overall they were great. The fairways for the most part are also in good shape. If people observed the 90deg rules the whole course would be even better.

East course does not drain well. Cup are never moved and in poor shape to putt. Greens are very slow. Good place to practice or for new beginners. No cart service.

With all of the rain we had lately, the course was a little damp. Overall, the fairways and the greens were in good shape but the fringe and the rough had not been mowed in a while. Made it very challenging.

We were a twosome teeing off first at 6;30am. Perfect weather in low 70"s at sunrise.. Finished in 2hrs 35 mins. My buddy is a 10 HCP so I was the hold up. After playing Trump National at Doral the day before, it's an unfair comparison.

We played the East Course at Orangebrook, the grass was really high ( 6 to 10 inches ) in many isolated areas and along the fairways that even a good golf shot became lost or super tough to play. Now, in all fairness to a golf club of this status, a week of rain did no justice for their crews to cut the grass. Many of the fairways had huge clumps of grass clipping that you see on a farm that is ready to bail it for cattle feed. Drainage is pretty good and the greens are average at best and slow. The Golf Club shows its age and lack of up-keep , but for the price its a nice bargain to work on your game. Kudos to Mike , the starter. He is professional and helpful and would be a great asset to some of the better upscale courses. I have played here before, mainly for its Hot Deal prices , location and that it has not been crowed the total of 3 times i have stopped by. to practice my game. Enjoy it for what it is, and play it to work on your game . If I did keep score , it would have been worst than yesterday's at Trump National just because you lose so many balls here in the tall grass or under huge clumps of grass clippings. Fairways are wide-open for the most part and I do not recall any really masterful layout holes that required too much of a straegy . A fun play if you are close by, but not worth a long drive to get here. ,

Orangebrook's pair of 18-hole courses have always been a you-get-what-you-pay-for tracks that feature ragged playing conditions, highlighted by their phlegmatically-paced greens. While the greens remained shaggy on the East Course due to drought conditions, the fairways and tee boxes were generally in unexpectedly fine shape. Bunkers were less so, but it didn't matter as I worked on my long game, while blitzing through a solo round in about 2 1/2 hours. There was no beverage cart service, but starter and pro shop were most amiable.
