JACARANDA GOLF CLUB (954-472-5836) West 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 with sand bunker, 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 rear covers to protect clubs from inclement weather. 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 photos in this review are of Jacaranda West - which is routed in and around waterways with traditional fairway and greenside bunkering, and tropical
landscaping that makes this course aesthetically pleasing to all levels of players. There are 5 sets of tees that play to distances and slopes measuring
6778 yards/130 slope, 6411 yards/126 slope, 6009 yards/123 slope for men and 134 for women, 584 yards/118 slope for men and 126 for women, and
5006 yards/113 slope for men and 117 for ladies hitting from the forward tees.
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,
