After booking what I thought was a good deal through GolfNow ($31), I got to the course and was told it would be $85 because I didn't have a Premier card. The booking description said it was the "Premier card rate", but nothing about requiring you to have the card. OK, I'll take some responsibility for not understanding the rate differences, but the booking $31rate description could have been better explained. I even clicked on the link to buy the card and it told me to check back in mid-November. That not withstanding, the kid in the proshop was totally unsympathetic to my shock at the $85 rate he charged me. I explained my GolfNow booking rate, my first time here, on vacation, etc. and asked if he could cut me some slack. Nope, no way. Gotta have the card !! So much for visitor satisfaction. After coughing up $85, I find the the course obviously still had hurricane damage, lots of wet/muddy spots, numerous holes "cart path only", and sandy greens. Bottom line -- premier rate, less than premier course conditions. And certainly not a friendly reception. Won't be coming back and will tell my FL golf buds and friends about my experience.

We are sincerely sorry to hear about your experience in the Pro Shop and we will address that directly with our staff. While it is true that you do need a Premier Card in order to receive the rate and we cannot "cut slack" with regard to that, we expect our staff to remain professional and polite when delivering that message. We understand your disappointment and truly hope we'll have an opportunity to redeem ourselves in the future.

This course is like a home course for me. Jacaranda East is the longer of the two courses but easier in terms of difficulty. On this occasion, the course was cart path play only. The fairways, though in excellent condition, were water logged because of the recent heavy rains. The greens were in excellent condition and rolled true. The pace of play was excellent and we as a foursome finished the round in 4 hrs. One big disappointment was lack of drinking water around the course. Usually, Jacaranda is very good with placing water coolers with ice cold water at every 5-6 holes, but this time it was a disappointment as I found water cooler only at the 16th hole.

However, this disappointment will not stop me from playing the course again.

Played the east course for the first time. Got a hot deal rate. The course was pretty beat up but we did just have a hurricane a couple of weeks ago. I was most upset when I was on the driving range. I was going to hit a few of my own shag balls that I keep in my bag and the marshal yelled at me for doing so. Didn't know what the big deal was. Everyone else was super friendly and very accommodating though. But the course should get back into shape soon. I would probably wait to play full price.

We are sorry to hear about your experience on the driving range but we do not allow extra balls to be hit that were not purchased in the Pro Shop. This does cause extra wear and tear to the range. We certainly do not approve of our staff "yelling" at any of our guests and we will be sure to address that situation. We are glad you had a chance to play the course after we were closed for a month due to the impact of Hurricane Irma. We let everyone know that there's still work to be done to get the course back into the incredible shape our guests are used to at Jacaranda. We hope to see you again soon!

The course was in excellent conditon. The greens rolled smoothly, the fairway looked like carpet and the colurse layout was challenging and fun. You have a choice of 5 tee positions and they really change the difficulty of the course. I wish I had a course like this in NY. I highly recommend it.

Why is a course with such a good layout and in very nice shape everywhere that is green can the traps be SOOOO BAD.

They are the worst sand traps in Florida

If you're lucky, they will settle in a place where they're like rock quarries. If you're unlucky, they your ball with rest on top of the white mesh or you can't find it since it will have sunk 6 inches deep along the sides that the crew rakes

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We're glad you enjoy the majority of our course conditions. We've been hit pretty hard with rain this summer and as a result the bunkers do get washed out and can be difficult to maintain. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you on the course again soon.

Played this course about a week before and was the second time playing. All as previous tee boxes fairways in great shape. Greens very marked with un repaired pitch marks. Overall good golf challenge. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely come back next year during my vacation. Greens did run true and were relatively fast if you could avoid the pitch marks. I don't understand why golfers cannot repair their own pitch marks its quite simple these people would be removed from my home course in the UK.

Staff all very accomodating and friendly. Tee boxes fairways in great shape. Greens good condition however LOTS of un repaired pitch marks. Had to repair at least four per green on my putting line. Not the course fault players please repair pitch marks you are ruining a lovely course. Greens quite fast and true when pitch marks repaired. Drinks cart seemed to be on hand when required which was good on a hot day. Overall good test of golf for all levels. Would recommend to all.
