Jacaranda Golf Club is a Semi-Private, 36 hole golf facility located in Plantation, Florida. The facility has two 18 hole golf courses, The East Course, and The West Course.
The West Course opened for play in 1971. The course was designed by Mark Mahannah.
The West Course has been traditionally labeled a shot makerâ€™s golf course. Weed Design, of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida has successfully completed a renovation of the original Mark Mahannah design.
The renovated golf course remains a shot maker's course. Length is not the determining factor, nor should it be. There are lagoons to avoid, doglegs to challenge, bunkers that tighten landing areas and green complexes that will challenge every caliber of player.
The outward nine is more forgiving with receptive green complexes and short-cut areas. The inward nine is more challenging, particularly with the more boldly contoured greens and their surrounds. Shot-making, creativity around the greens and patience are key components to negotiating the inward holes.
It should be noted that golf holes are meant to be patiently uncovered with an equal balance of physical ability and mental agility. The mix of holes on the new West Course is designed to challenge both aspects of a player's game.

This course is one of the best courses in the area. The course has a lot of character for a Florida course; it's not just flat with water hazards. Shot values are excellent, green complexes will challenge you and bunkering is steep faced and will often be a stroke penalty. It's part of a housing development but I never saw houses. Tee times are new to GolfNow.com, and early morning rates can be reasonable even in high season.
