Nice round of golf

Pleasant course in pretty decent shape. Did not know greens had been punched and sanded. Also did not know it was cart path only that day due to rain earlier. Course is very fair and in nice condition. Nothing startling or unique, a Florida course:: flat, with sand and water. Over-all, pleasant day. I played mid-day and had the place to myself. Even with cart path rule, I played in 3 +/- hours.

Very nice except

First time here, usually play close to Sarasota. Late tee time so course was wide open. Beautiful conditions except greens were sandy and recently punched. Cart path only sucked but because of all the rain, I can seee why because fairways were best I’ve played all year. Will definitely return

greens were all sanded and eliminated any ability to putt.
we were not told about condition of greens and probably would have played at another course!

Nice surprise

For hot summer conditions, it was decent. Sure, plenty of dry spots and even weeds, but playable. It has a Old Florida country club layout...play the tips for a little more challenge. In season, it's probably very good. Drought has attacked all courses in the region. I will be back.

Great Course!

Had an awesome time at Jacaranda West CC! Very friendly staff! Five different tees to choose from. Fairways and greens were in great shape. Definitely going to play JWCC the next time we’re down here

Great course, pace a little slow

The course was very well manicured. Fairways were amazing and greens in great condition. We were the first tee time and were told that they will start people on the 10th hole so we should make the turn in 2 hours. We got through 9 holes and had to wait for two groups to tee off ahead of us on the back nine. Slowed us down big time and pace of play was a little slow for my liking.

Other than that the course layout and staff were great. Will definitely recommend and play again. Just be prepared for a slower pace.

New venue

Outstanding venue for mid-level handicappers, which we four are: 11-18. Fairways actually have grass, which is rare now in Sarasota area given the dry conditions.
One minor issue: teed off at 1300, nothing scheduled behind us til 1415. Starter kept sending 2-somes off behind us (members, I'm sure) that ran up on us, let them through, another would arrive. After 8 holes there was a back-up of 4-somes with numerous 2-somes stacked up behind. Would appear more reasonable to pair the 2-somes so pace of play could remain fluid.
Still a gem I cannot believe we've missed for so long.
