Makes you think
This is the first time I've played this course. Their are a number of bunkers scattered throughout this course. Being in the fairway is not a premium, but not being in pot bunkers is. The greens were like glass and very fast. This course is beautiful and I will definitely be back. Staff is courteous and very helpful. Go play!

The New course at Grand Cypress
I booked The New Course as a first time single to the resort. Grand Cypress found me a two-some and we got out ahead of a larger group that helped make the day even more enjoyable. Great course and resort. Staff was friendly and helpful. I will definitely return to Grand Cypress.

Grand Cypress Resort - New Course
The course itself was in good condition. The only thing that knocked this from excellent to good was the greens had not quite recovered from being aerated. Staff was tremendous, as you would expect for a resort course. Cart girls and attendants with Ice Towels came around frequently. The discounted rate made the "punched" greens a minor issue.

Wow! Grand Cypress!!!!
I have wanted to play a course at Grand Cypress for years. I finally did it the other day and now can't wait to get back. Played Grand Cypress' New Course which ihas a lot of traits of Scotland's Ole Course at St Andrewd, right down to the jagged trails the carts traverse over. What a treat.
The course was immaculate as was the clubhouse. The pot bunkers, which litter the course were a nice treat, usually!

People... Pay attention to course alerts !!
A friend of mine booked us a tee time on Golf Now at Grand Cypress New Course. He called and said it was a great deal but it had an aerification alert. Since both of us love to play the Grand Cypress courses, and with such a good price, we booked it anyway. When we got to the pro-shop to check in the guy in the pro-shop greeted us as he was starting to check in another man. The man said he had a golf now tee time and needed to check in. He asked if he wanted range balls and the man said they are always included with golf now. He explained that they was $5 a bag and that it doesn't say on golf now that they are included, well the man really got upset saying they are trying to take his money by falsely advertising on their website. The worker tried to explain that they don't run the golf now website, that it is ran by golf channel and he was sorry about the misunderstanding and he would go ahead and throw them in this time. Then the man asked if the course was in good shape, and the worker stated that the course had been aerified about three days ago and the greens would be a little bumpy and sandy. That sent the man into a frenzy. He was very loud and rude, saying that they were trying to cheat people that book on their website ( which again everyone should know that they don't run the site), because nowhere on the site does it say the word aerify. The man demanded him to show him where it states that about the course. The worker pulled up the golf now website and showed him the big A with the exclamation point in the box showing that the course has been aerified and that is why the price is cheaper and why he gets a $25 bounce back coupon to come back and play when there is better conditions. The man questioned how was he supposed to know that is what the A stood for, the worker kept apologizing but it did no good. Finally the man said a few bad choice words and went to go play. Then as we are at the practice green beside the first green, he goes off on the starter about how he would never be back to this course and they never told him when he checked in about the course conditions. The old starter just kept saying he was sorry and the man's group finally teed off.
I check all the alerts (big boxes in the tee time squares) to find out what is offered and conditions of the course when we book through golf now. It states on there to bring a copy of your booking (in case the course hadn't got the tee time from golf now), your tee time can be pushed back up to 20 minutes (don't see how that is really a big deal, a few more minutes on the practice green) and what comes with the tee time and any course conditions. We read that the first time we used the site, we have been pushed back a few times, but courses has also let us go out early too. This was the mans fault and the worker tried everything he could to accommodate him. Please if you are going to use this great site to take advantage of the pricing, read and understand the website before you go and act like this in public. Remember this is supposed to be a gentleman's game. Sorry I just had to say something on this matter.
