Grand Cypress Resort - The New Course
Best layout for a golf course
This is how every golf course should be built! Generous fairways, great condition, and all par three tee boxes are laser shot for yardage in the morning and marked on each tee.
If the staff managed the pace of play better, this might have been one of my favorite rounds of golf I've ever played. It took a twosome 5 hours to play, since no staff managed the pace. Should of taken 3-1/2 with this layout.
If this is truly links golf... sign me up.

SOUTH/EAST NOT NEW COURSE
I booked a tee time for the new course and within minutes got a call from the club saying they were doing work on the new course and could switch me to SOUTH/EAST. No big deal because I got a great deal on golfnow. I played the south course (9holes) in an hour and a half. A single ahead of me, great pace. However when I got to the back 9, 3 4somes are waiting on the tee. Because there are three separate 9 hole courses they can get mixed up with groups playing 18 holes and starting on different 9s. I went to the clubhouse and spoke to Scott, the AM who gave me a raincheck good for another 2 years. I went home not too upset. Try to get out early if you are going to play here, it does get busy. The nine holes I played were in great shape and a nice design with both scenic and challenging holes.

Pace of play so slow
Great course that I would consider playing again BUT the pace of play is painfully slow. It should not take 5hrs to play a round of golf. I believe course marshals should monitor the slowness of play. Very snobby & male orientated course which was a shame.

Love this lay out. Fun and challenging. A great experience and must play.

The Best Golf Course In Orlando
As you should expect form a luxury resort, the staff and service was excellent.
Now the golf,
The course is a links style course and was in excellent shape. THE FAIRWAYS WERE IN BETTER SHAPE THAN MOST OTHER COURSES GREENS.
The greens were rolling about a 9 or a 10 and they were all very consistent.
If you can, you should no you must play this course, you will not be disappointed.

Fairways and greens!
Course is as close as I will get to playing St. Andrews. I recommend it for any avid golfer and the guy who only gets out a few times a year. Play back tees and it will help you to avoid some of the bunkers.

I didn't pay enough to play this course.
I booked at hot deal for this course. $28. That's right, $28 to play the new course. This is a great links style course. Every thing was perfectly manicured from the tee box to the green. If you book online through the golf course it is $150 a round. This is the nicest course I've played in Orlando, by far. It would've been worth $150.

Always 1st Class
Returned after not visiting for 15 years. Grand Cypress is still a top notch facility in every way. 3rd time playing the New Course. A very fun course to play. Not particularly challenging-so play the back tees. Pretty wide open...but very fun. I love this course for a relaxing, well-maintained, enjoyable day of golf.
Not that they would, but more bunkers and more mounds on the greens would help stiffen the challenge.
