Two Championship Golf Courses in the heart of Broward County
Rediscover the newly rejuvenated East Course at Jacaranda Golf Club. With a $5,000,000 budget to install new turf, irrigation, drainage and cart paths, the East Course has regained its standard of excellence. Paspalum tee boxes and fairways provide the most playable surfaces for full swings and the introduction of the latest in Tif-Dwarf greens affords players the best putting surfaces available in South Florida. Architect Bobby Weed has created a course unique in its bunkering, collection areas surrounding the greens and a multitude of shot options for your short game.
Host to many PGA and USGA tournaments and qualifying events including: PGA TOUR Q-School; U.S. Open Qualifying; Florida Open Qualifying; 2000 U.S. Amateur Qualifying, Nationwide Tour Qualifying and home to the ’04, ’05, and ‘06 Women’s Broward Amateur Tournaments as well as the permanent home for the Broward County Amateur Golf Tournament since 1995 through the present!
The West Course has been traditionally labeled a shot maker’s golf course. Weed Design has successfully completed a renovation of the original Mark Mahannah design making Jacaranda home to the two BEST golf courses South Florida has to offer.
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.
