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.

Consistently good!

Jacaranda is my “Go-To” course. Always in good condition and a nice course to play. Starters are friendly and so are guys in the pro shop. Could offer more range balls for the money though.

Jacaranda West

First time playing the course, nice design and fairways and tees were in great shape, a good number of greens were showing some stress however. Design is solid, some tight holes with a good use of water to force accuracy. Would play again but with the green conditions it was a bit over priced.

Loved the West...

Years ago, the West course used to get a bad rap as being not nearly as good as the East. That may have been true but not any longer. I was told that they put some money into the West and it is very obvious. A prettier course that than East but also a good challenge. It too, in in great shape. The yardages are a better geared to the average golfer at 6411 and 6009. Of course longer from the tips.

]My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the course and were disappointed we only got to play it once on this trip.

Thank you for giving some love to the West Golf Course! It's definitely a local favorite but is sometimes referred to as the East's little sister. That's definitely NOT the case! We're glad you love it. Come see us again soon.

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.
