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.

I booked the time for the east course but it was aerated. They were able to add me to a twosome that was playing the west course. I thought that was nice and we had a great time. Pace of play was slower than normal because there was a lightning delay and some groups continued to play and some quit and then squeezed between the ones that were playing. But it never was long and rangers were out helping people keep pace so it was very enjoyable.

Thank you for the great review and rating! We did aerify the East Course this week but we won't start on the West for a couple weeks. That gives the East time to heal and be ready for play once we start the maintenance on the West. We hope you'll be back soon.

South Florida resident and never played Jacaranda before. Caught a hot deal for $38 and off me & my buddy went. Staff was very friendly. The course is manicured beautifully.

Greens were a touch slow, but that was expected after 3 days of rain prior. They weren't slow, just not lightning quick.

Course was challenging for a 24 handicap (me). Will definitely go back. The usual price of $60-$70 seems right, but with so many low prices du to off-season, I wont go back unless I get the cheap $38 rate again.

Overall, best we played during our vacation which included among others Deercreek, Emerald Hills, North Palm Beach and Tpc Eagle Trace.

Lush tee box on all tees, fairways like carpets and greens evenly fast. For some reasons we were alone on the course, an added bonus (12:40 starting time). Played about 6,300 yards but can be a monster from the tips. Good shotmaking course. Really enjoyed the place. A must, but a little more expensive than competitions.

I have nothing but good things to say about this course. It was my first time here and I wasn't sure where to go. One of the employees saw me walking with my bag and asked if I had ever been there before, to which I told him no and he said to jump in the cart so he could get me to the clubhouse. Everyone was very helpful from the pro shop, to the starter, the cart girl, and clubhouse. The course itself was in fantastic shape. The carts come equipped with GPS that shows you a layout of the hole and hazards that you might not even be able to see from the tee box. I was thoroughly impressed and will definitely be back again and again.

I played the first time back in December 2017 and this time the fairways were in great condition as well as the greens even though it appears that golfers here does not fix ball marks on the greens. The pace of play was average until the middle holes when it completely stopped. after 4 holes and 2 hours later, it started to move quickly again.
