In a quiet corner west of Fort Lauderdale, the beautiful Grande Oaks Golf Club boasts a pristine and natural Raymond Floyd-designed18-hole, par 71 oak-lined golf course that measures 6,680 yards to the tips.
Renovations in recent years have made for an overall challenging, yet pleasurable golf experience. Players will find player-friendly Celebration grass on the tees and fairways and the ultra-dwarf Tift Eagle grass on the green, which makes for superior greens play. State-of-the-art floating head walking mowers used by the course provide prime playing conditions.
All tees at Grande Oaks are perfectly square and aligned to the middle of the landing area, offering a variety of distances from which to play. This enables golfers to challenge themselves or playing a more relaxed game on the same course.
The Club also includes a 40-acre practice facility, and a newly-renovated plantation-style clubhouse.
Today Grande Oaks bears little resemblance to the former Rolling Hills course that was the location of the American comedy film “Caddyshack” that starred Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, Michael O’Keefe and Bill Murray. The iconic sports movie was filmed at the course for 11 weeks during the autumn of 1979 before its release in 1980.
