Boss of the Moss

Great HOT DEAL as this course is overpriced at normal rate esp. winter rates. NOBODY out there. Pace of play excellent 108 tee time and done by 350. UNLIKE yesterday's play when we followed a usual men's group - waited on every shot & hole. They shoulda sent us off the back nine for a more enjoyable pace of play rd!!!!

This was a great course that I booked just a few days in advance. We were very pleased with the maintenance of the course and greens and will definitely play it again. Great value!!

Other Reviews Tell the story

I play 3-4 times per week all over south Florida. I avoid most public broward county courses because of these reasons.. 1. The staff is absolutely terrible! Rude and outright unpleasant. 2. The courses are average at best, greens are ok, Tee boxes and fairways need work. The rough is St. Augustine grass or sand mostly. Sand traps needs more sand most places, could be borrowed from surrounding areas. There is Nothing special here. If you can play for $20 or $30 before noon it’s worth it, but set your expectations like all the other completely run down public broward courses. The only courses left in broward worth playing under $50 are Woodmont or Hollybrook. Pembroke Lakes and Jacaranda/Preserve make the cut but at a usually higher rate.

I Should Have Read Yelp Reviews Before I Went

"I should Have Looked at Yelp Reviews Before I Went"
My wife, son and I Golf once a week in the area and decided to check it out. We paid for 18 holes at 4:22 PM more than enough time to finish a round. At hole #7 a lightning storm came out of nowhere.Everyone playing headed in. We went to the Pro shop which was closed to get a rain check. I called the next day and was treated like I was trying to steal from them. Anywhere else around they give rain checks no problem (Colony West Etc,). The guy kept saying "Your Not Listening To Me"...Well buddy representing Yelp customers your not listening to us. Here's how customer service works, you keep the $40.92 dollars i figure you owe us (Out of the $80. I paid) and choke on it. Then I tell everyone I meet this story (I'm already up to 12) and they tell 10 people and so on. It's a shame because this is a nice course with a good layout, but there are not good people running it. Bad policies, Horrible Customer Service, Bad people.

Great public course

My first time at Oriole was very surprising. Given its location, this course offers great greens and better than most fairways for local public courses in the area. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a good budget course.

Oriole Golf

I played this course the other day. I played Blue tees because a lot of the holes were under 400 yards and wanted to hit driver. Was a nice layout, greens had been aerated, but rolled nice. Really no complaints. There was a massive rain storm that blew in for an hour, but course dried nicely.

All in all it was an average course and I would play it again.

I LOVE THE PERSONAL OF THE STORE

THE STAFF IS EXTREMELY GOOD, I LOVE THAT ALL THE STAFF SHOWED INTEREST IN ASSISTING THE CLIENTS, THEY TREATED ME AS IF I WAS A DISTINGUISHED MEMBER. THE LADY AT THE PRO-SHOP IS PHENOMENAL AND EFFICIENT. THE FOOD IS VERY GOOD AND WITH GOOD TASTE. IT TOOK A LONG TIME BUT I MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THE GIRL WAS ALONE AND THERE WERE A LOT OF PEOPLE
