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.

This is the less hyped cousin of the East course, but I like it. Fairways, despite rain during the week, were in excellent shape. I would've given the course a higher rating, but the greens had recently been punched and were a bit lacking. They should come back nicely. Solid layout.

Thank you for taking the time to review the West Golf Course. Many locals and members do prefer it to the East and we often find ourselves defending the "little sister." We are so glad to hear you enjoyed it and hope you have an opportunity to play again once the greens have had a chance to heal.

Sadly we got suckered by GolfNow. No mention of the greens being freshly punched. Felt like we overpaid by a good bit. Next time I use the app I'll call the course first to check on the condition. Lesson learned. Much cheaper course to play in better condition in the area.

We're so sorry to hear you felt that you were "suckered." This is the time of year that most courses are aerifying and we always spread out that necessary maintenance between the two golf courses. We are discussing different ways to inform our customers of this maintenance in advance. Please visit the calendar on the website for future maintenance dates. We hope to see you again soon.

This course is generally always fun to play but for the price I paid I would expect to be notified of the course being aerated in the 2-3 weeks prior to playing. Seeing as how this is South Florida and there are a ton of golf courses I would have simply played someplace else on the one day I get to play per week. The course itself is in great shape but with punched greens it was pointless putting and basically dumb luck if you made even a moderate length putt. The other two things that are frustrating about this course is that they 1) put rocks in the bunkers. Not just waste areas or fairway bunkers but green side bunkers as well. Im not a pro and cant replace my wedge for free because some genius thought that a rock wont ruin your wedge. The other thing is they charge $10 dollars for range balls. A bit much when they recently killed off all the grass on the range and your essentially hitting off dirt. Even when the range is in good shape, $10 for 20 balls is a joke.

Don't get me wrong, the course is enjoyable and yes I'll play there again but these things are frustrating. My recommendation is to call the course to see if they are aerating (because their prices wont go down) and move rocks/pebbles if you end up in a green side bunker.

We sincerely appreciate the feedback. We have been discussing ways to inform guests prior to arrival that the courses have been aerified. With the increasing number of rounds being booked online this has become more difficult to communicate. We will be posting those aerification dates on the Event Calendar of our website moving forward. We assure you we do not place rocks in our bunkers. Unfortunately rocks can come up from underneath the soil and we're sorry you experienced that during your round. While a bucket of range balls is $10, you receive 40-45 balls and we do offer discounts if you purchase multiple buckets. We are glad to know that in spite of these constructive criticisms you still enjoy playing Jacaranda and recommend it to other golfers. We are grateful for that and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Always enjoy playing this course. Fairways and greens are very clean. It is shorter than the east but demands a bit more thought to get around with a decent score. Ball placement off the tee is very important and makes it challenging. Still fun for longer players, used a lot more irons and woods off the tee. They said they were just about to punch the greens so may be done already.

The only problem with the course is the bunkers. They might be under repair because every one had tons of stones in it and not very much sand. It had rained a lot the last few weeks before I played so I'm sure that had something to do with the lack of sand but it's no excuse for the stones.

Great course as always. Will be back.

Jacaranda is the go-to course in the West Broward Area. I will admit, I have not played Plantation Preserve but that's because I stick to GolfNow. If you can get a time under $45, it's a steal. $45-60 is still well worth it. This time of year, anything over 60 (for locals), then the course has the advantage. For tourists, anything under $80 you should book now!

This course is very nice. Beautiful course with some picturesque holes. The course is very well maintained. Greens in excellent shape and well raked bunkers. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed this course. One guy I played with from Boston said he always plays this course when he comes to South Florida and described it as one of the top courses in the area. Overall, I really enjoyed playing this course. It was challenging, but good for all golfer levels. I highly recommend this course.
