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.

poor value

The course and layout are average. You simply can find other
Florida courses that are of better value.
The amenities are poor. No drinking water on course. Which is unacceptable given
the hot sunny climate in Florida. It's a
crime that they then charge you 4.50 for a small water.
Go else where.

Impressive Course

The fairways were outstanding. Generous, in great shape and green for January golf. The best part was the way they mowed them. They mowed them with a 4-6-foot-wide mower, mowing up and down the fairway vertically. Really gave the fairways a nice look. I’ve never seen this before - the fairways were perfect, all the way to the cart path. Usually, you will see brown grass, tire ruts by the cart paths edge – but not at this course. Also, they mowed the rough low, so it was not a factor and sped up play. The bunkers were also in great shape. Each cart had a rake in their cart, between their golf bags

The greens were firm and fast. Many of the greens were elevated and usually had a section that sloped off severely. Each green had a perfect, 3-foot green fringe surrounding them.

The course did have GPS. The signature hole was the 17th hole. A very wide green over water.

The course was very friendly and organized. They have two courses at Jacaranda – an East and West course. They have a white stripe on the cart paths for the East course and a yellow strip on the West course. What a great design to help you get from the starter to the 1st tee and from the 9th hole to the 10th tee. Very creative. We went to the 19th hole after the round and the lady bartender could not have been more friendly. We really enjoyed our round at Jacaranda West. Highly recommended.

Confusion name golf course

Yesterday 06/24/2020 make reservatio at golfnow apps for pkay at Jacaranda West in Plantation, when I arrived to the course guys say me, You don’t have reservation, because you make reservation at Jacwranda west in Venice, 4 hours to far, that is frustrating because I had to pay $ 70 at Jacaranda West in Plantation for play my round and I payed $ 40 for reservation at golfnow apps. When I try to contact with golfnow that is imposible. Is the most expensive round.

Let’s see… so YOU book at the wrong course and give a 1 star review? Typical idiot

We will certainly forward your issue to Golf Now in hopes that they will be able to help you rectify this situation. It seems you did not book at the correct course and unfortunately this is not the first time that's happened. Our staff does not work for Golf Now so there's nothing they could do correct this for you.
The course in Venice has a similar name to ours and it's unfortunate you felt we deserved a 1 star rating because of this confusion. We sincerely hope you enjoyed the West Golf Course and hope you have an opportunity to play it again.

Course is in decent shape — Great greens

Couple areas in various fairways and tee boxes that are under repair, however they have a full staff working to make everything better.

It’s the best maintained public course within a 15 mile radius. I paid $60 for a Friday morning round.

Fun day of golf!

First time playing here and it was in great condition. Fairways are in beautiful shape, greens rolled great, and tee boxes in good shape. All staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. Played the West course and I’d definitely play it again, it’s a beautiful course.

Great course, great staff

An amazing course. The reason for 4 stars on the price is just because it’s a little high for what you get, especially when it’s $10 for half a bucket of range balls for warming up. I think $90 for 18 holes and a cart could include the range balls or at least range balls for $5.

Either way, I’ll still come back. The course was awesome.

Nice layout with very generous fairways. Greens were nice and rolled true. Played from the #2 tees and was very manageable for single digit handicappers. Definitely will play again.

Excellent Condition

Played the West Course at Jacaranda for the first time in a couple of years and it was well worth the $60 greens fee. The tee boxes and greens were in very good shape and the fairways were in good condition, other than some scattered burnt out spots from the heavy rains in the past 14 days. As close as you can get to private club conditions without being a member.

What a difference a year makes

This is definitely not the same course we played last year looks like the maintenance has been lacking severely. Not sure what’s going on there but they need to figure it out fast because the People I played with We’re also very disappointed. For the money you pay green should be spectacular fairway should be great as well. Hope they can turn it around
