We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your round at Jacaranda. The cost to rent our brand new Titleist AP1 rental sets is actually $69.99. We truly feel our East and West courses offer 36 diverse holes of championship golf that appeal to golfers of all abilities. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you back again.

Teed us off about an hour behind a mini-tour event of some sort. No notice, no advance warning...found out about it when we called from the 7th tee (2 hrs in) to ask if the could please get a ranger on the course to get things moving. Took us 5 hrs to play. Not the friendliest folks either. Very disappointing given all we had read and what our expectations were. We won't be coming back!

Went as a single at the end of the day. Paid $40 and played all 18 plus 3 more before dark. Conditions were great except for the lazy and dis respectful players who can't be bothered to fix a ballmark or rake a bunker. Will be going back

I played the West course - shorter than the East Course, but as challenging for an intermediate player.

Jacaranda has a beautiful landscape and the staff is so very friendly. I intend to go back frequently. I highly recommend.
