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.

This was not the first time I've played here and was pleasantly surprised by several improvements management made on the course. The fairways were in good condition and with the exception of the 7th, the greens were also good. One of the improvements they made was new signs and hole maps on each tee. Another change is that they removed the GPS's from the carts and substituted an app GPS. We played on an unusually breezy day with the wind in your face on the two par 3's on the back nine, both of which require shots over water.... both holes are short but really challenging when playing into the wind. One more comment, this one having nothing to do with golf...the course is on an age restricted property and you must go through a security gate to get in. I had to wait 15 minutes to get through because of a huge backup at the 136th Ave entrance. There is another entrance on the next block which might save you some waiting time.

Golf course and old basic clubhouse need some work. This is a SENIOR complex. Tee boxes are terrible, fairways and rough very bumpy and greens full of weeds. Greens get better on the back nine. Course layout and pace of play was good today. NO beverage cart on course. Staff friendly.

The course if good but the downside is that the clubs drop off is quite far from the pick up of the carts, you have to carry them over , very poorly organized. Since you cannot go in the parking with the cart when you finish the game, you have to carry the club back to the drop off and then drive up with the car ???? It was our first time there maybe we don't know how it works but it was a hassle...

I had a nice experience at Flamingo Lakes and was paired up with 2 ladies from Quebec that could really hit the ball. It plays longer than its stated yardage and has a lot of water, so hitting it straight is important. One or 2 of the greens had another strain of grass that was creeping, so that would be my only criticism. Otherwise, it was very enjoyable.

Always a challenging course. Mishits typically find water. Keeps you engaged on every shot. Fairways on the thin side, rough is inconsistent so chipping can be a challenge, greens were decent but on the slow side. For only $42 in January, don't expect much more.

Narrow course...more of a challenge than one thinks when you first look at the score card. Fortunately they gave me a free yardage book. Nice sale of shoes going on. Greens were good, there was grass. Not much sand in the bunkers, but they were raked. They have a café where all the assisted living folks eat lunch and dinner. Beer by the can!

Green was terrible. Half bad green + Half Clover. So just gave up putting. Fairway was not maintained either. I don't know why the guy in starting tried to make people match even there were only a couple of teams. If it's under $5, can think of play again. Never worth more than that.
