Flamingo Lakes Country Club in Pembroke Pines is one of the area's best-kept secrets. The layout is challenging but it is also very forgiving, making it accessible for players of any skill level. The course differs from other golf courses in the area due to its hilly terrain. Elevation changes are not common occurrences on Florida golf courses but you'll find several tricky uneven lies on this one. It also stands out for its superb conditions. Water hazards come into play on almost every hole, presenting some interesting risk-reward opportunities. There are also several strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout. The layout requires thought and strategy in order to score well. Flamingo Lakes isn't long, instead it provides a quick and challenging round that can be played in less than four hours.

I had a tee time for Saturday June 9 at 10:44 AM at Flamingo Lakes, but it was cancelled by the course because of the weather. I have still not received a refund for my round over a week later. I expect an immediate refund for the inconvenience. The confirmation number for my round was 317828486

It has been surprising to see the course conditions improve so much from last year. New tee boxes have good grass. Greens were excellent except for #3 and #7 which still have the problems.

I have played this course a lot. Many reasons.

Close to home, best Pastrami sandwich around.

I have had pace of play issues in the past, but not this round and the one thing I noticed is the greens, most of them at least, are in excellent shape. There are still a few that need work, but they have been upgraded for the most part.

The course is nice. Friendly staff.

We played on easter and it took almost 5 hours and that is far to slow.I don’t know if it is so slow normally. Great value for money anyway

This can be a tough place to play if you can't hit it completely straight. With the windy conditions I played under, it varied to almost a three club selection. The course reminded me of golf courses of the late 60's in the layout. I was going to grab a bite to eat after the round but I went to the restaurant and saw only 1 waiter and there was a big line waiting to be seated. I decided to skip the restaurant ! All in all it was a pleasant day.

I have played this course many times in the past. Usually at the last minute game. The course is convenient for me, because it’s 10 minutes away from my house. The course is not in the best shape that it could be.. the third green and a few other ones have to many weeds or bare spots to have a consistent put. If you want water at the start of your round, you have to go inside the restaurant and bother the waitresses for water. I have suggested to them many time to put a water cooler with cups where we check in. This course is one of the cheapest to play at around my area.
