The East Course is one of two four-star rated championship courses at Jacaranda Golf Club. Both golf courses have a tropical landscape covered with ponds, canals, colorful landscaping, and of course plenty of swaying palms. The East Course is the longer of the two courses. It has served as host for several PGA and USGA tournaments and qualifying events. The layout features tree-lined, undulating fairways and raised, sloped greens. It offers a challenge at almost every turn with 80 bunkers strategically placed throughout and water hazards on 15 holes. Some of the bunkers are built into the mounding complexes, giving them sod faces and high lips that are difficult to navigate. Those that manage them successfully though will be rewarded with excellent scoring opportunities. The popularity of the two golf courses has affirmed Jacaranda as one of the best places to play in southeast Florida.

Jacaranda East is a fine golf course. Played from tee #3 which was about 6,400. Played long with the wind and softness. Yes, they’ve been watering because I had mud balls and saw plug marks all day. There are some areas where grass growth is a problem and that’s a problem around the greens. The front has some tight driving or non driver holes for many. The back is more open. You have to be golfing your ball well to get around this place. Fair. Not easy. The greens were covered lightly with white stuff. Not too bad but different to putt on. The greens can be tough if your not careful. A couple of slopes that sneak up on you if your not careful. There are a few fun risk/reward holes and a few gorgeous holes on the back. 3rd time playing and I will go back. Very nice staff inside and out. Very nice pro shop and facility. Fun place to play.

Great track, everything from tee boxes to fairways and especially the quick greens were all flawlessly conditioned. Really great gold course, just the right amount of water and enjoyable to play. Challenging yet rewarding and playable. Staff were extremely friendly as well and finished the round in four hours. My first time playing but certainly not my last.

Enjoyed the course. Could have had a bit more variability off the tee and course in layout in general a bit benign. Tees, fairways, and greens were in great shape and finished under 4hrs. You can tell it’s a well run operation. Would play again and recommend.

Overall good course. Pace of play was decent few spots that it backed up seems like because of the layout. Multiple tee options for all levels. Fairways in good condition. Greens were okay but inconsistent speed and very firm.

Course was good but the condition not quite as good as in previous years.

We confronted a huge 45 minute storm which flooded the course just after we made the turn. The Club were offering rain credits to everyone but as we had booked a “hot deal” with Golf Now we were told that we would have to contact them direct.

We did so and I was not happy with being told that the course never shut and that therefore we were not entitled to any refund although we were offered some fairly useless coupons!

Not what we expected from an organisation that we have, until now, held in high regard. Frankly Noah and his ark would have struggled to play in such conditions.

Thank you for taking the time to post about your experience at Jacaranda. It's unfortunate that you ran into some terrible weather as we're not used to that this time of the year. When you book a prepaid round through Golf Now they receive that money so we're unable to offer any type of rebate on our end. We're sorry to hear you were not satisfied with their response to your situation and we sincerely hope to see you again soon.
