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!

Two options, Jacaranda Golf Club's 36-hole modern complex, and the traditional Hollywood Beach Golf Resort, a 1924 Donald Ross design, are so different it's like going from an upscale contemporary transformation to a bygone era.

It's no secret that golf in Miami can be expensive. But there is affordable golf, very affordable, if you know where to look. One place to start would be with Miami's municipals, of which there are four 18-hole courses and a couple of pretty good short courses. The jewel of the lot is Crandon Park at Key Biscayne, just a few minutes from downtown Miami. Here is a look at the Miami munis.
