Rating 71.3

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.

Great Value

Haven’t visited Orangebrook since I moved out of the Hollywood area. After playing ~20 rounds further north, this course has held its value beautifully. It’s very well maintained, most holes are challenging, with several risk reward situations. The greens had some patches here and there, but nothing in play near the pins. The pace was fantastic. Almost nobody around on a Sunday morning. Felt like we had the course to ourselves for most of the round. Staff was friendly and clubhouse was stocked with everything one might need if they showed up I’ll equipped. We will be back soon!

Fun course and a great deal.

Not the most difficult but still a challenge for the average golfer.
Overnight rain did make the course wet with standing water on some of the fairways.
It was worth the price regardless.

Stop Double Booking

I’ve tried playing on the east course multiple weekends in a row just to show up and find out it’s closed and I’ll be teeing off on west.

This wouldn’t be an issue except for the fact that tons of golfers are also getting moved over which double books tee times and causes extremely slow pace of play.

Open up east or stop allowing people to book tee times on it! Makes no sense.

the East course was close

I signed up to play at the East course, but after I paid and got the cart I was told the East Course was close I had played on the East course many times and I am very familiar with it, The West Course was practically under water I was told no refunds or rain checks given, also we had to walk to look for the ball, the Fairway was practically under water.
I live in Miami and drive 22 miles to play at Orangebrook East course

Not worth it

To be fair, this course had some glory in the 70’s. The only thing left is the nice layout. Burnt grass on fairways, tee boxes with full harvest weight mushrooms and invasive weeds on some greens. Pace of play was good and cart girl was easily spotted. Bottom line, there are many better courses so just drive the extra miles...

Beautiful course. The staff? Not so much.

Orangebrook is a decently maintained and challenging course unfortunately some of the staff members, particularly the cart return guys are not the most customer service oriented group.
These nimrods come over to your cart while youre obviously cleaning it out and getting your belongings together and just stand there with dumb looks on their faces.
Then you have the heavy set bald guy who instead of kindly reminding everyone to make sure they have their wallets and phones, etc. He's barking orders.
Does he not understand that we are paying customers?
I won't be playing this course again.

Slow Play

The group in front of us play really slow. At one point they had 3 open holes ahead of them. We called the pro shop for a ranger. Who fail to show up. Or never send anyone.
