JACARANDA GOLF CLUB (954-472-5836) East Course
Florida Golf Course Review
Over 5 million dollars in renovations have been completed at the Jacaranda Golf Club. Both the East and West courses have undergone design changes, and updates to the
layouts also include the re-seeding of all green complexes with Tif Dwarf, and the re-seeding of all fairways with Paspalum. Tee boxes and bunkers have also been renovated.
Jacaranda has long been considered to be one of the top golf facilities in SE Florida. The property include two beautiful championship courses, a spacious targeted grass range,
short game area, plus large practice green. Clubhouse facilities include a nicely stocked pro shop, wonderfully appointed locker rooms with showers for men and women,
banquet/outing facilities, plus a restaurant and lounge with outdoor patio.
On both courses, there are permanent markers on the cart paths at 100, 150 and 200 yards, and sprinkler heads are measured to the front, middle and back of the greens. Pin
placement sheets are posted on all carts, which are also equipped with a GPS system for accurate measurements from tee to green. The scorecards for each course have
individual hole diagrams with measurements from the tees to the hazards (water and bunkers) - a much appreciated feature.
The East Course at Jacaranda features 5 sets of tee boxes that are quite evenly interspersed, affording golfers of all skill levels with an opportunity to choose a set that matches
their game. The tips measure a formidable 7247 yards/129 slope, while alternate sets play to 6891 yards/128 slope, 6376 yards/122 slope for men and 142 for women, 5747
yards/119 slope for men and 125 for women, and 4923 yards with s slope of 110 for men and 118 for ladies.
Jacaranda's East Course presents generous but undulating fairways, with significant bunkering (80 in total) situated greenside or along the landing zones off the tee. Some of the
bunkers are built into mounding complexes with sod faces and high lips. Land in these on the fairways and the results can be quite penal.. gamble and successfully negotiate the
traps, and palyers will be rewarded with great scoring opportunities. This is the result Bobby Weed strived for when he structured the re-designs. Water comes into play on 15
holes - mostly on the perimeters, with only the beautiful par three 17th demanding a forced carry..
The fairways on both courses are ample and are usually tree lined. Green complexes are raised and sloping, with sales and collection areas awaiting offline shots. Tropical
landscaping that includes plenty of palm trees provides aesthetic beauty, particularly around the newly sculpted tee boxes. The overall conditioning from tee to green is quite lush.
In addition to improvements on the layouts themselves, Jacaranda features new cart paths, stone markers and renovated on-course restroom facilities. Bobby Weed completed
the make-over of both courses, which were originally designed by Mark Mahannah.
Jacaranda is a first class golf experience in Southeast Florida - and we highly recommend a round here! For more info, visit our page for the property, with direct link to the
