As far as Miami-Dade county, Kendall Indian Hammocks is a nice play, two courses with various pin positions, worth the drive if you're in Miami or not far away. There is a 21 hole course near the Homestead Air Reserve Base with a few par 4's, but it's a haul just from Miami, let alone Broward or Palm Beach counties. I'll second what the OP mentioned about Commons and Okee, they are the must plays in West Palm and there is recent course film if you're traveling there to show you what it is like at each course (South Florida Open, courtesy of The Disc Golf Guy).

Just helping you out if South Florida is your destination in this great state.
I'd throw Palmetto Bay Village Center on the "beautiful" list for Miami. You probably need a guide, but it's a fun play and definitely beautiful if the mosquitoes and deer flies aren't out in force.

Yes very scenic. Second only to Jet Stream in this part of FL. But, we played it recently and it was hard to navigate and we had a guide. Irma didn't do this course any favors. I hope that it gets some TLC.

I would play River City if you can only play one park. I would play the original course there (Alpha) if you only have time for one round. It's not to bad from the shorts and there is a really nice disc golf store across the street if you need any plastic.

you cant go wrong with either of the two multi-course parks. Bill Frederick's got more variety with the 3 courses on site. However Alpha is probably the most relaxing chill course I've ever played. Plus if you're coming from the beaches, you'll run into horrible Orlando traffic on the way to Bill Frederick.

True. Both are highly rated and worth playing. Five 18 holers might be a little ambitious for one day with a long drive. I would play them in this order: Alpha, T-1, T-2 and jump on T-3 if you have any time left.

Any info on Easterlin in the Miami area? The pictures make it look like it has some fun techy holes.

I love Easterlin...it's a 20 hole course with multiple tees on about half the holes, and nothing too long...pack a handful of fairway drivers, then mids and putters all day...bring something you don't mind losing, as a pond comes into play on a few holes. 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.
