Rating 75.5
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.

Best in Area

Local here. This course is the best in the area, no doubt. Other than Trump Doral, it is hard to find a bette kept course open to the public.

Grab any hot deal under $70.

East is mediocre Staff is great

The course is super average. Sand ok. Greens ok not fast not slow. The bunkers ok. Basically there is nothing I will remember about this course. 116$ I’m new to Florida I expect more for the money. Perhaps the Orlando golfing has spoiled me. Staff is the. Best thing about the whole

Place. Friendly and professional.

We appreciate you taking the time to review Jacaranda. It's great to hear that you thought highly of our staff but we're certainly disappointed to hear that you didn't enjoy the East Course. We sincerely hope we have the opportunity to impress you in the future.

Challenging track

I would give this a 5 star if the fairways were in better condition. In quite a few of the holes the fairways were a bit patchy, but nonetheless this was a beautiful track. It’s challenging and plays super long, especially with the 15mph winds.

Overall this course is superb, up there with the likes of Trump Doral, the Biltmore, etc... like I said, you give it some time for the fairways to get unpatchy and this will be a 5 star place hands down.

Thank you for posting a review about Jacaranda. We pride ourselves on having the best fairways in town and we are so sorry you did not feel the same! We hope to see you again when you're back in Fort Lauderdale.

Dropped a star this year

Jacaranda is my favourite spot in south Florida. We are Canadian and go down for Christmas every year. We play Jacaranda Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (this year we got an extra round on the 26th).

The staff at Jacaranda cannot do enough for you. They are always the best we deal with in south Florida. The proshop staff are great at getting you set up. The bag drop is always accommodating (they let us leave our clubs between rounds). Jacaranda is one of the few courses that you can get a coffee and bite to eat before teeing off. I don't understand why this isn't normal in south florida.

The East course we played twice this year. The conditions were not up to what I expect from Jacaranda (some dead spot in the fairway and the bunkers could use a some new sand). Overall the course is in good shape and is a fun courses. The East course is a pretty straight forward track that doesn't require a lot of thought to get around but you need some touch around the greens. I hope the conditions are a blip and not the beginning of a trend because I love the place.

Used to be better, still challenging and a solid course

Used to be in better shape. Pristine as recently as 2015, when I played it last. Still in good shape, but bunkers and the areas surrounding them arent great. Greens rolled nicely.

All in all a more challenging layout than plantation preserve, not as scenic and I prefer the layout of plantation. But in better condition with quicker greens. This was the case a few years ago and it still is - but both are gently going downhill.

We appreciate the constructive criticism and assure you we take your opinion to heart. We work very hard to keep both courses in great shape so it's always disappointing to know when we don't exceed a guest's expectations. We hope you'll be back to the club soon.

Would play again!

An enjoyable course to play. Blue tees were fair with water in play on a few holes but not like some other Florida courses where seemingly every tee shot has a chance to find water. Greens were very fast and true. GPS on carts very helpful to avoid trouble off the tee. Would have liked to play the West course also but vacation is over :( Will play again next time in Fort Lauderdale.

Nice course

Course was in great condition. The starter was a little serious but did his job. We had a great pace until we got to hole #8. The second group ahead of us had some trouble on the par 3. No big deal. We all have bad holes. You move on to the next hole and catch back up to the group in front of you. That did not happen .We waited on every hole with no ranger in sight. By hole 15 that group had 2 open holes ahead of them. If you have 5 plus hours to play 18 holes , than this is a course for you

Thank you so much for taking the time to rate and review Jacaranda. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the course but so sorry you experienced slow pace of play. We use the GPS to keep track of the pace and we average about 4 hours for a round. And if a golfer falls behind then a ranger definitely should have spoken to the group slowing everyone down. We will address the issue moving forward. We hope to see you again soon.
