Hollywood Beach Golf & Country Club
Hollywood Beach Golf & Country Club offers a championship course where you can enjoy a private and secluded setting free of homes anywhere near the fairways, tees, or greens. Donald Ross originally designed the golf course in 1924. It has a classic layout that has withstood the test of time to become one of the area's most popular public courses. Seasoned golfers will find that the course is not the most challenging but it is good for a casual round that will still keep you on your toes. The course is tight, requiring a fair amount of accuracy. There are not many hazards but there are some and they are very strategically placed. The layout is player friendly enough to accommodate a range of skill levels and the affordable rates make Hollywood Beach Golf & Country Club doubly appealing.

Great layout, they are really improving the fairway and greens
The layout is challenging, with lots of water. Friendly staff, fast pace, perfect for me.
Greens are better
Lots of work, fairways are really nice, the greens are coming back and are well cared for. I really like the layout and the challenge, and pace of play.
Love the layout but...
Overall layout is great. I love playing the old course designs. That said, the tee boxes were horrible, the fairways were mediocre to horrible and the greens were furry and really slow. The only things that were good to great were the sand traps and staff.
I suppose in it’s day this was a fine course in great condition. That day has long passed. Although a great layout, there is little green grass to be seen. Tee boxes are terribly bare, fairways are very rough with abundant bare spots. What grass there was on the “greens” was cut long resulting in terribly slow putts. If however you enjoy reptiles you will enjoy the iguana infestation. On the plus side is staff friendliness but that is certainly not enough to bring me back. I hope this course gets a major upgrade at some point but I am putting it on my unplayable list.
Blame Hollywood, not Hollywood Beach Golf Club
As the city of Hollywood continues to withhold voter-approved funds to rejuvenate its oldest track, this nearly 100-year old Donald Ross course will continue to suffer from lack of sufficient maintenance. And on April 1, the extremely dry conditions added insult to neglect as there were few good fairway lies during our foursome's dusty, robustly-paced round. The greens were bumpy and often brown, the bunkers flanking either side of the greens were usually hard, and the tee boxes were ground up. To be fair, many heavily-played tracks in South Florida are struggling with similar conditions, and by April, many courses in the area are somewhat beaten up
As usual, the Ross design featured strategically-placed ponds and ditches, but the picturesque, Par-70 course overall, was not threatening. Higher handicappers may find it tough to score on the long-ish Par 3's and Par 4's., but short Par 5's are gettable. While the staff was predictably friendly and efficient, the beverage cart service was lacking, particularly on a quiet golf day. The cozy snack bar inside the module next to the pro shop served up the tastiest bar-b-que sandwich in Broward County. In spite of its lamentable shape, the venerable HB is stilll worth playing for under $20.
I play this course every time I’m in the area and normally enjoy the round but on this occasion I was informed that the greens were recently top dressed. It was more like putting on a sand trap. Otherwise the course was fine and well-maintained. I was planning on playing it at least another time while I’m on my stay but the condition of the greens will have me look elsewhere
Great Course and Friendly Staff
First time plying this course, and had a great time, fairways and greens are in great condition. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. Needless to say that I will be back for sure.
It's nice, not too challenging and you get a great value for your money. Definitely will go back !
Worst Course EVER
I really do not think they even cut the grass.
No maintenance at all the greens or the worstni have ever seen. They don't roll the greens and the grass is all dead. The Tee boxes are the worst as well.
Great course but...
Greens are so slow. The ball never made it to the cup unless you hit it extra hard and got real lucky. Other than that, it was nice.
