Holes 18

Length 6778

Rating 72.8
Type Semi-Private
Both the East Course and the West Course at Jacaranda Golf Club are four-star rated by Golf Digest. These challenging golf courses weave across a tropical landscape covered with blue lagoons, tranquil ponds, and swaying palm trees. The West Course is the shorter of the two courses but it is no less challenging. Strategy and skill, rather than length, are the determining factors on this layout. With water hazards to avoid, numerous tricky doglegs, and tight bunkering along the greensides and landing areas, this course is definitely a shot-maker's layout. The raised, sloped greens and undulating, tree-lined fairways will require some careful maneuvering. The outward nine is slightly more forgiving than the demanding inward nine, which features more boldly contoured green complexes. The challenging, yet versatile design of both golf courses has made Jacaranda one of southeast Florida's most popular golfing destinations.

Fall golf break

We are a group of 4 who have travelled from Scotland to play golf. This course was our 12th of the trip and would have scored a maximum of 5/5 if the bunkers were in better shape. They were akin to a dusting of talcum powder sprinkled onto concrete!!!

not up to usual jacaranda standards

Played the west course recently. paid full price only to find out many greens were in awful shape. no mention of this in pro shop. starter was great and warned of course conditions, tried to move to east course but couldn't fit in anywhere. typically very happy with both courses but not sure I'd play the west for some time.

Nice Course, Don't mind the Starter

The course itself was in good shape. The layout fair and forgiving. Was a great day on the course.

10.60 for a small bucket of balls is too much.

The starter was rude and impatient. Played as a single was told to check back after warming up. I did but apparently walking over was a mistake. The starter let me know he has a system and it's by cart number. I've never been told off over doing as I was asked.

Anyway got out had a great round and the local lizards that wander around the course were a cool distraction.

Greens are in bad shape

I was disappointed in the coarse conditions. Several of the greens were in terrible shape on the west! I have played there in the past and they are usually great, not sure what happened.. The greens feed are too high considering the conditions.

Rio Off

We had booked a Hot Desl Ter time for the West course at 9:05. for $75/each. When we arrived we were told their was a Ladies Group playing the West Course and we could wait until 9:30 to tee off and be.behind them the whole round, or we could play the East and have clear sailing. We chose the East and all was well untold we got to #10 and found we were behind a 4 some that just jumped on. We had to go around them and missed a hole or two. Not happy with the whole expiresnce. Be aware when you pay that type of money you get what you pay for!!! I won’t be doing that again soon!!

Pretty good

I’d say this was just pretty good. Mainly I say this because I paid the same price for Doral Blue Monster the day before and this place doesn’t compare. It’s just isn’t the same caliber. It probably was worth half that cost I’d say. Greens were looking really rough. Course was in good shape other than that . Pace was slow. They had a good outing that morning that seemed to push things behind.

I did have a guy playing with us that took it as his mission to fill in every divot that did not have sand in it. No lie; at one point we had 8 sand containers in our cart so he could fill those in anywhere we stopped. It was a constant annoyance.

I’m not sure why it was worth over $100 to play here. Bag drop guys didn’t take my bag from me when I arrived. They didn’t clean my clubs afterwards. We saw the cart lady twice and one of those times we had to flag her down to stop. Just an ok experience this time.

Great staff not worth the money

Great staff hands down! Greens were very poor condition,70% of the tee boxes were in poor condition, fairways were above average. They fertilized the fairways so cart path only adds to the below average conditions. Not worth $70 a rounds. The only reason I’m writing the review is because I did not get what I paid for, $50 or less I wouldent be writing the review.

Excellent and enjoyable golf course

Very good course with moderate challenging layout. Its condition is great even though the greens were treated with sand perhaps recently. The pace was excellent (about 3 hours) to play alone. I liked it a lot.
