Grand Cypress North/South/East
east is horrible
Played the north and east....the north is decent but the east should be bulldozed. Terrible terrible conditions. Better value all over Orlando. $135 not worth it. Practice facilities are good.

Great Course and Layout
The South-East combination at Grand Cypress was an excellent challenge and layout by Jack! The course was not overly long and the well placed bunkers and water test your accuracy along with elevated greens and tee boxes. You are rewarded with accuracy and penalized for a lack of it. The course even offered an intermediate handicap system for golfers to play a combination of blue and white which is nice since my playing companion averages only 200-240 with drives and the blue par 3's would have been a bit of a challenge for him.

Very hard course
As a beginner, I think this course plays very difficult. I think the North is the best out of the three. Great island green on the East course. Always in good shape, this is good if you want to impress friends and practice hard shots.

Must Play in Orlando
I had heard a lot about Grand Cypress and the amazing course that it is and I can say that it did not disappoint.

First Words from Starter..."You're Late"
Vacation splurge was the idea for this 9 hole round of golf. Called the course first to inquire about 9 hole round riding for 4 players with rentals on a Friday afternoon and the guy on the phone couldn't give me an accurate 9 hole rate or rental club rate.
Booked on GolfNow.com for 18 as the pre-paid time was better option than not knowing the 9 hole rate and walking in blind.
Rental clubs cost more than the round of golf and was $9 to $29 more expensive than what the guy quoted me on the phone. Got loaded up and hit the first tee to be greeted by starter saying we we're late. I booked a 1:50pm and we wer eon the tee at 1:42pm, he said you have to go by what is on the ticket and the ticket says 1:40pm. Bad first impression and I didn't even make a practice swing yet.
Course was tight for my all over the place drives but in really good shape and the layout was good. Very undulating which was tough on the beginner and senior golfers I played with. I picked this course for me but since they weren't having that much fun I didn't have much fun.

Definetly the nicest, most well kept course I have played in the Orlando area. Wide open fairways and perfect greens. I will play this one every chance I get.

Good, but not the best at Grand Cypress
Liked the North 9 quite a bit, but just am not a fan of the South 9. I think the greens there are a little goofy and really are too severe for resort-type players.
It's so difficult to make putts and it's so different than the North side that it's too drastic of a change. I'd play the East/North combo before playing the South/North combo for sure.

Great Clubhouse - Boring Course
The reception at the clubhouse was fantastic. The restaurant was also excellent. Then the wheels fell off. The Pro Shop refused to check me in until 30 minutes before tee time. This meant I had to interrupt my lunch to get checked in. The two nines we played (E/N) were flat and boring. The course conditions were poor. The on-course amenities were largely absent. The pace of play was very slow. In summary, I would not recommend this course.
