Course isn’t worth what they charge to play. Over all conditions are decent for the time of year. Greens roll fast which I like. We ordered food on the 8th from the gps on the cart. When we get to the turn there is no food. The woman said sorry about that, we were taking out the trash and didn’t see your order. For 20 minutes you were taking out the trash? Whatever. Cart girl comes around on 15 and asks if we want a drink, as she leaves her purse falls out. We take it to the starter who says nothing.....literally nothing. Not thank you, not where did you find it? Which course was she on? Literally, nothing!!!!! Overall experience was not good and I would not play the course again.

Booked course last minute while on the plane en route. The layout is nice and the course in in great shape. The greens are in good condition and are somewhat quick. It's a bit pricey for non residents this time of the year, but I wanted to play a good course close to the airport and the West course met my requirements.

I love Jacaranda (both courses). We played here two years ago and it was a favourite and I was worried I would be let down by memory. I was not. These courses make you feel welcome by every staff member. The West course was in perfect shape and is a fun mix of holes that makes you think about your game.

The West course was in better condition than the East course. It also was a better layout. We flew through the front nine but were stopped cold on the back nine. I could see there was a very slow four-some holding things up. When I finally Did see and talk to a Marshall on the 15th hole and asked how many holes were clear in front of the foursome he said 2. He said he couldn’t say anything because they were on Pace. He ruined the enjoyment of golf for many players that day. Do your job! Keep the pace! Also I have never paid $10 for 35 golf range balls. That is a rip off.

Thank you for taking the time to rate and review the West Golf Course. We are glad you enjoyed the conditions and layout. We are sorry that you were slowed down on the back nine. It is difficult to tell a group to pick up there pace when they are playing within the guidelines we set forth (4 hours for 18 holes), but we are sincerely sorry if caused you any displeasure with your round that day.

I flew from toronto to Florida for a quick golf getaway. heard some good thing about this course. I was extremely impressed with the course condition especially after Hurricane hit Florida not too long ago. I was a single player and started my round around noon time. By the 5th hole, I caught up to the foursome in front of me. I followed proper golf etiquette, stayed back and did not hit my shots until they were out of my range or until they finished the hole. (BTW, Not once did they wave me through)

Finally on the 9th hole, I decided to skip the hole and get ahead of this group since I didn't want them to feel rushed.

Well, one of the guy in the foursome, who is apparently a member caught up to me on the 11th hole and started yelling at me saying that I'm not allowed to pass them without their permission. I explained that I did it out of courtesy and didn't want them to feel rushed with me behind them. He started accusing me of not knowing my golf etiquette and he just wouldn't stop. I didn't even mentioned how they were so slow and never even attempt to wave me through. I kept my cool and just drove away. I was so angry and upset that I didn't even finished my round. I went to complained to the pro shop and all they did was say sorry and gave me some tees and ball markers. Jacaranda is a beautiful course but this member really ruined my trip!

We appreciate the positive review of the golf course conditions especially given your negative experience with another golfer on the course. We try to pair singles up in order to avoid these types of situations but sometimes it does not work out that way. We sincerely apologize for that encounter and we hope we'll have an opportunity to host you again. If you decide to come back to Florida please email Kasey kasey@jacarandagolfclub.com to set up your tee times and please reference this message. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Great golf course but we had a blow out tire on the golf cart. The front tires where almost finish when we start. The noise was terrible so much that my wife had an headache and we lost about 20 minutes. This hi end golf course should not have some golf carts in bad shapes.
