Fort Lauderdale, Florida
About Ft. LauderdaleWhether it’s a sightseeing cruise, or a trip to the Bonnet House and Gardens, Fort Lauderdale brings a lot to the table. If you take a Las Olas River Cruise, you can expect a wide arrangement of food, drinks, and taking in the magnificent waterfront views of Fort Lauderdale. Las Olas, also known as the “Rodeo Drive of Ft. Lauderdale,” has a variety of luxurious shops and art galleries. If you’re tired of walking around all day, then it’s probably a good time to hit the links. Hollywood Beach Golf Resort features five par-3 holes, and there’s no homes on the course, so feel free to swing away. Deer Creek Golf Club has been around since 1971, and it’s always 5 o’clock at the Deer Creek Grille. If you want to experience some golf history, head over to the Grande Oaks Golf Club. This was the course where they filmed the movie “Caddyshack”. Just a heads up, you probably won’t get a free bowl of soup with that hat!
Perhaps the most highly anticipated new golf course opening in the US this year, Andy Staples’ Match Course at PGA National combines classic golf course design principles with a radical take on format. Say goodbye to “par”, forget traditional stroke play and embrace match play competition – the way the game was intended to be played!
