It's my home course, I live two miles from it. Baskets are rotated every month and a few holes have 3 placements. Not the must play in Fort Lauderdale, but if you're looking for a shorter course, especially when it's hot, Easterlin's the way to go here.
Cool thanks! I plan to play pretty non stop trying to hit all of the areas courses. This one just kind of caught my eye as a pretty fun looking spin. And I'll definitely be bringing some backups since there are a number of courses that seem to have water in play.

Easterlin is the "wooded" Broward course. I have it at 3.0. Broward has some nice courses now. My favorites are Markham and The Jet Stream but all the Broward courses are worth a toss.

Jet Stream is one I'm really excited to play. Depending on how it goes, I might even spin that one twice

The Jet Stream is one of only a couple courses that I regret never having had a chance to play before moving out of Florida. I actually had a trip preliminarily planned there for my last week in Florida, only to get bed ridden sick for a week with flu like symptoms. The Jet Stream has an absolutely crazy review rating spread that I needed to check it out for myself.

My wife has family down in Ft Lauderdale so hopefully some day.

Jet Stream might be the most beautiful course in Florida, although I haven't played it since Irma. Hopefully, it survived ok. I have friends down there who have explained the review discrepancies. I won't go into the local politics of it all here. My only real complaint was that there were too many elevated baskets. But it is still my favorite course on the SE side of the state with McCarty Ranch and Markham Park close seconds.

Jet Stream survived Irma for the most part. The course has been taken back over by the park. While the local club here is seeking to take over maintenance and do some other things with the course, that is out of their hands for at least this current moment. The course is playable but one or two holes are not, and there is a zipline being put in by the park that may force one or two holes to be moved, but that is all the details I have right now.

Earlier this month Heritage Park in Plantation finally reopened after Irma forced the Broward Parks to remove all the Australian Pines...while the park looks a lot different the course suffered next to no effect...one tee pad was damaged while the pine trees were removed and one hole will play a little differently, but otherwise it is back up and ready for disc golf.

So, that long awaited update on Earhart park in Hialeah (NW Miami):

The course is completely playable again. A map is suggested, and the front ten look a little ragged in spots still, but nowhere near as bad as it was.

Secondly, there was a soft opening for a 9 hole course up in Martin county. It is geographically located between West Palm and Port St Lucie. I should get up that way in early May and will report back.

There is still a plan in place to install a second course at Tradewinds park, but the project has been delayed.

I’m going the be in Ft Lauderdale in May but probably won’t be able to bring any discs. I looked on this site and it lists a dart and bowling supply shop. When I google the shop it shows as closed. The next closest stores are listed as a Dick 100 miles away. Are there any local shops? I will be near Markham Park. I would like to find a shop where I can maybe get a disc with a local stamp and mail back home. I reached out to the local club but no reply yet. Thanks.

I'm not familiar with that area for Florida, but I always find room to squeeze one disc into my luggage. I figure I can always find a Laundromat, but I wont always find a place that sells discs.
