Both the East Course and the West Course at Jacaranda Golf Club are four-star rated by Golf Digest. These challenging golf courses weave across a tropical landscape covered with blue lagoons, tranquil ponds, and swaying palm trees. The West Course is the shorter of the two courses but it is no less challenging. Strategy and skill, rather than length, are the determining factors on this layout. With water hazards to avoid, numerous tricky doglegs, and tight bunkering along the greensides and landing areas, this course is definitely a shot-maker's layout. The raised, sloped greens and undulating, tree-lined fairways will require some careful maneuvering. The outward nine is slightly more forgiving than the demanding inward nine, which features more boldly contoured green complexes. The challenging, yet versatile design of both golf courses has made Jacaranda one of southeast Florida's most popular golfing destinations.

We were the first tee time off so pace of play was not an issue. Course was in very good shape, fairways were plush and greens were smooth and relatively quick. Will definitely play again.

It's rare to find a course where every club in the bag gets used, but that was the case Sunday. If you are not familiar with the West, false fronts abound and many of the green side bunkers are very difficult to get out of because of high lips. Fairway conditions were very very good. This, despite my hacking through the rounds, remains very high on my list for Broward County tracks.

Only one disappointment, too many pebbles and rocks in the traps. (Of course I could have avoided that but I am a 15 handicapper after all)

First time playing Jacaranda (West).

First asked upon arrival if I was with the tournament. When I replied no, I was given no further direction. No one asked if I knew where I was going or told me what to do. When I got in the pro shop they were prepared for my arrival and recognized me by name. I was asked if I wanted range balls then sent back to get my cart. More paositive interaction for sure.

Then I got my cart, no one again told me where to go. Once directed to starter booth, I went there and no one was present. After a few minutes someone showed up, “checked me in” and told me I’d be playing with someone else. Ok, but he handed range balls and said nothing about where to go or what to do when finished warming up. After. I asked he directed me to the half of the range that was open and told me to come back to him after hitting. After I returned, I was just told to go to the first tee. Then the ranger there (normally id call him a starter but ok) rudely told me to give him my cart and ride with someone else. It wa how he told me to do it that wa SOO out of line. It was like I stole a cart from somewhere and got caught.

As for the course, good layout, really good conditions the day I played. I’d play again and have a better impression since I wouldn’t have to ask where to go for everything. Also, range balls should be included ANYWHERE that charges $90 a round.

Other than the barefoot guy in front of us, a good if slow round. Course in great shape, modern carts. The #3 tees play short so if you hit the ball a good ways, play off the #2’s.

Enjoyed our round of golf. The course was in very good condition except a few of the tee boxes were very sandy without grass. Pace of play was good, backed up a little on back 9, probably a group ahead of us took too long at the turn. Overall nice day of golf!

Played Jacaranda for the 1st time during our tour around Florida. Impressed with the course layout and condition ( which are the main points) however, the pace of play was very slow with little action from the course marshall.

While we're glad to hear you were impressed with the layout and conditions it's certainly disappointing to hear that you we fell short of your expectations in other areas. We'll work to improve our operation and we look forward to taking care of you in the future.
