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.

Clowns

Nachos shouldn’t take an hour and shouldn’t be nasty. Bartenders don’t deserve respect until earned, and should not confront a customer ever. Don’t call the cops on your customers. Don’t expect service at the level this course price would portray. Cart girl was great, not the one with the fat burnt arm.

Better than expected

Pace of play moved right along. The fairways were in great shape and the greens putted out with consistent speed.
The coarse was very organized. Can’t wait to come back and play the east coarse.

perfect for travel

Its often tough to get rounds in on reasonably good, well maintained, public courses in the Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale area.

A group of friends, 8-12 of us, have played Jacaranda's two courses for about a decade now each spring.

Both courses have good layouts. I can't describe a distinction. Plenty of challenge in the wind, plenty of choices as to which tees to play. They always do a very good job with the greens, bunkers and tees (many public courses in the area have "issues": keeping up with this. You pay a bit more here, yes, but I think its definitely worth it (particularly if its an escape from winter).

Great warm up range, convenient lunch, bar and snack shop, easy to get to from FLL. People have always been nice and have been very accommodating when changing the numbers of golfers comes up, jumping out sooner when possible (or later when players have issues getting to the course).

This is our "go to" location. I book them because I know everyone, even the pickiest of players, will be happy here (particularly just off a plane from the cold). Just went in March.....still great and consistent as ever.

Try it. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Martin

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.

Prestine fun track

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.

Challenging course, worth the money.

Overall we were pleased with the course, its condition and the pace of play since our tee time was 8:51 before the crowds arrived. It was worth the money and was a great day.

Nice track

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.
