The Diplomat (501 Diplomat Parkway, Hollywood) — located just outside of Miami-Dade County in Hallandale Beach, The Diplomat is worth a special trip. The Joe Lee design features rolling hills and 50-year-old foliage that predates the course itself. With the natural beauty and the steady winds breezing in from the nearby Intracoastal Waterway, the golfing is difficult but well worth the lost balls. Like any true golf course destination, the Diplomat has an island green, located on its signature second hole. Who’s there: The legend of the Diplomat swings wide, drawing CEOs and bigwigs from both Broward and Dade.
Prices: from $109 in the high season to $59 in the summer months. Florida residents get the best deals; twilight golf $49
