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.

For a public access course one of the best in the Ft Lauderdale area. Got to play it on a Hot Deal so really worth the money. Conditions weee really good. Tee boxes and fairways were great. The greens rolled nicely and true. Definitely worth playing if you are in the area. They had the club championship going on so our round was a bit slow but not too bad.

We had to scramble for a place to play after a terrible day through airports. We played East Jacaranda last year and were playing East the next day. We were glad to get on West. If you have the choice East is the better course. We played 18 in 2 hours. Awesome pace of play.

We are glad you were able to get in 18 holes of golf after the way your day started. That's an incredible pace of play! Both courses are in great shape and it seems 50% prefer the East and the other 50% prefer the West! Either way, we're glad you enjoy Jacaranda.

Pros

- Pace of play, under 4 hours on a Friday midday

- Courteous, organized staff

- Course condition was decent - tee boxes, fairways and greens were good, bunkers were thin and hard-packed

- Tee boxes for all levels of play

Cons

- Pricey driving range

- No bunker rakes on course, shorties on cart

- Lots of player damage - eg. divots, ball marks - starter should counsel players prior to tee-off. Should also recommend appropriate tee boxes

Thank you for taking the time to post such a thorough review. We sincerely appreciate the feedback. We do try to request that everyone fill their divots and repair ball marks on the green. We even have some of our staff fixing those things throughout the day. It's definitely a daily challenge and we will work hard to improve upon that!

Great lay out and decent condition.

Would have liked to play as a single and there appeared to be plenty space but was paired with another single and eventually took long time due to playing partner on phone all time but that’s not the clubs fault.

Overall enjoyable round.

After 5 slow holes and 3 groups on a par 3 the ranger came by saying it was not his fault, that he just came on duty ( 2pm?) and there was a slow group with 3 open holes in front of them. He told us they were just finishing up and it would get better, it did get better thanks to the starter moving some groups to a different 9, How did the morning ranger allow a group to get 3 holes behind???

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.
