Rating 72.8

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.

Great course

Played this course twice this week. Absolutely loved the West course over the east course.

The fairways were in great shape and most of the greens. There were a few greens that were a little damaged.

A little pricey for the quality of the course. I still recommend the course but only through a “hot deal “.

A nice suprise!

Had a great time playing the West course. Couldn't believe how great of shape the course was in. Such a good experience here!. I cannot wait to return and play the east course. The price was a little more than I'd pay to play regularly (at my skill level), but I really did feel it was worth it. Cart Girl was nice, and the food was pretty good at the turn around. The course layout was fun, and challenging while also forgiving.

Players were stacked so closely the wait from hole to hole was terrible. The round took well over 4 hours. I don’t think it is reasonable for the cost of the course.

Well conditioned with nice greens. 1st green had a a few problem brown areas but that was the exception.
Unremarkable layout but good enough to have a fun day.
Staff was adequate but will not win any hospitality awards.
Played the east course the next day. Not nearly as well conditioned. I did not enjoy the east course.

A nice day out

Great pace, 18 holes in 3hrs 30mins is not bad at all. And that even including a few waits for somewhat unattetive groundsmen along the way. The course is a bit on the pricey side, but greens were the best played so far in Florida, fairways also in min condition. Ice boxes in carts would have been gret, missed that.

A Marvelous surprise

Today my wife and I played Jacaranda West. Without question is is the best golf experience we have had in the Fort Lauderdale area....It is incredibly well maintained....tee boxes, fairways and greens are superb....and best of all the pace of play was such that there was no waiting to hit your next shot.....would we play it again? ABSOLUTELY!....Can't wait to play Jacaranda East....

Have played this course, the West, several times. The condition for a public facility is top class. Staff always helpful and friendly and the only criticism is that rangers should try and speed up the pace of play. If you are a good golfer you will spend a lot of time waiting!!

horrible condition

greens bumpy, tee boxes patchy, greens sandy in spots, patchy.. no workers on course, Superintendent rude, Mr. Kevin Fiitts. banned me from the course for telling him it was the worst shape I had seen in 10 years, after having played there at least 150 times, both East and West courses.. He was very rude and hung up on me, but not before saying I would not be allowed to play there any more..

I am a USGA member since 1983 over 36 years and I have never been treated so rudely by anyone at a golf course.. This used to be the jewel of Broward Co. one of the best 36 hole courses, well maintained, great layout, superb food. BUT NOT NOW.. I would rate this facility less than 1 star if that was available...

Mr. Milstein – We certainly appreciate your patronage of Jacaranda over the years and we’re disappointed to hear that we did not meet your expectations during your last two trips to the club. We love our local golfers and are always trying to find more opportunities to get them out to Jacaranda throughout the year. As someone who’s played here over 100 times I’m sure you’re aware that we pride ourselves on A+ course conditions and customer service. Those standards are something we stress with our staff daily and based on the hundreds of reviews we’ve received over the years we’re confident we’re achieving those goals. However, we know there’s always room for improvement and we’ll continue to work to make ourselves better and worthy of being considered the “jewel” of Broward County. Our Director of Golf, Andrew Michael, and our General Manger/Director of Agronomy, Kevin Fipps, took the time to listen to your complaints more than once, and we are always open to constructive criticism as that can be beneficial in helping us grow as a team/company. No one would EVER be banned from Jacaranda for merely voicing their disappointment with our facility. However, we would be happy to explain to you directly why we think it is better for you and our staff that you find another golf club. We thank you for the many years you’ve spent golfing at Jacaranda and hope you’ll continue to enjoy the game we all love at the other great courses in South Florida.

Good Course in NIce condition

Jacaranda West is typical FL golf course layout with lot of water on the holes. Most of the water doesn't come into play unless you hit a really bad shot. It's an enjoyable track with nice conditions all around. They have 2 dining areas one is little more formal while other is 19th hole type. Staff was attentive although I found 2 long hair when I got done with half of my panini. Course itself is lacking the wow factor but I would definitely recommend it as great warm up course if you can get a decent deal. At full rate, I would say this course is overrated.
