Flamingo Lakes Country Club in Pembroke Pines is one of the area's best-kept secrets. The layout is challenging but it is also very forgiving, making it accessible for players of any skill level. The course differs from other golf courses in the area due to its hilly terrain. Elevation changes are not common occurrences on Florida golf courses but you'll find several tricky uneven lies on this one. It also stands out for its superb conditions. Water hazards come into play on almost every hole, presenting some interesting risk-reward opportunities. There are also several strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout. The layout requires thought and strategy in order to score well. Flamingo Lakes isn't long, instead it provides a quick and challenging round that can be played in less than four hours.

Pace of play was terrible (5 hours) on a 5500 yards course. Lots of greens with patchy spots. Played 3 times and it will be the last.

We play mostly Dade and Broward courses under $75. So the views are palm trees and apartment buildings. Flamingo is no different, but add in a ton of water. The difficulty lies in the amount and positions of water. Play to your strengths and be smart around the hazards. One green is in particularly horrible shape and another has some serious fungus. The fairways and tee boxes are in good shape. We tee'd off at 7:24am and played in 4 hours exactly, but the pace was good. Fees were $45 and that's about as cheap as you're going to find in Dade and Broward. Overall, excellent value at that price in the winter. I will play Flamingo again and recommend it

Got there 10 min early for the tee time. They said 2 other players will join you, great i said, always nice to have ppl to play with.You can putt and chip, till they get here. Okay cool, so warmed up a bit and noticed a group teeing off at the same time slot. I was like, ok! 20 min went by, and nothing no one showed up. So I went on ahead, played 3 holes and a staff member came to tell me they don't allow singles. Ok, but my tee time was now 35 minutes ago. Why do you have tee times? Don't you honor your reservations? We just don't allow singles. Perhaps for future reference you should not take single reservations. And then they allowed a group to tee off the second hole ahead of our group, slowing things down. Complete lack of respect in all fronts. I know the course is in bad shape but the staff dont need to be. I would like to see better leadership at this course in the future.

Great course for target practice. Water in plays almost on every hole and fairways not to wide.

Greens small and fast. Will play again.

We had great weather for golf and the course was fun. A few greens need attention, but very good overall. Greens are small but fair. Crowded, but play moved along. My foursome played round in 4 1/2 hours. Would definitely play again.
