There’s a good chance that you might be interested in Golfing Fort Lauderdale. Especially since you may be considering purchasing a home here. Aside from boating, another major attraction is golfing Fort Lauderdale! There is roughly 38 courses in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area to choose from. But if you feel limited by that number than you can search out courses in Miami and Palm Beach as well but this should be satisfactory. Just like boating, swimming and any other warm weather activity, golfing in Fort Lauderdale can be enjoyed year round (pending a hurricane). Always remember the sunscreen before golfing Fort Lauderdale. It may not be the beach, but you will get burned!
Golfing Fort Lauderdale
There are many golf courses to choose from in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area that range from both ends of the spectrum for difficulty. The courses in the area offer spectacular views, fun layouts and some have more than one 18 hole course. I occasionally (once a year) enjoy a round of and have played a handful. The experience on each course was pleasant, fun, challenging and due to a large number of lost golf balls, expensive! Both 18 hole courses at the Pompano Beach Golf Course are challenging with excellent views and I’ve played this course several times. I have also played and enjoyed the courses at The Diplomat Golf Resort & Spa and Inverrary Country Club. Below is a list of courses by map in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area. Not all golf courses are available to be played by all golfers.
A Public Course is one that is open to the general public and includes municipal courses and the daily fee courses. The main difference it that municipal is government owned and daily fee courses are privately owned. The Pompano Beach Golf Course is a municipal course.
A Resort Course is a golf course that is part of a resort property. You can check with each resort course, as it may be available for play to the general public. Guests of the resort will receive preferential tee times and discounted green fees. The The Diplomat Golf Resort & Spa and Inverrary Country Club is a resort course.

Private Courses are only open to golfers willing to pay a membership fee to join the club. Costs associated with joining a private club can vary widely. Some of the most expensive, cost hundreds of thousands to join. A non-member can play as a guest of a member.
