Terrific and unique golf course
The New Course was in great condition, tons of room for tee shots. challenging greens. Practice your long putts and precision chipping before you go if you expect to save strokes in the short game. Did I say great condition? Yes., an beautiful!. You should get their free app for your cell phone and study a bit before going or buy the course picture book in the club house. Lots of pot bunkers but we went in them very seldom. You have many choices on how to play most of the holes. That alone makes me want to return several times. You can just blast away and take what you get or think your way around the course. Bunkers often in middle of fairway but ample fairways on both sides. This is just a totally unique layout with many shared greens like the Old Course at St. Andrews. Probably be a little slow the first time you play because some holes don't have cart paths except around tees and greens(which it great also). Sunday afternoon the course was wide open even with beautiful weather. I can usually remember most every detail about a course after the first time playing it. It will take me 3 more times to take it all in. Our whole group of 4 only lost two balls. Nice day of golf it was well worth the 90 minute drive.

New favorite course
So much fun! The open fairways were great for my girlfriend and I who are both beginners. The staff was extremely friendly and while some of the tee boxes were being renovated the others were perfect. The double greens was a new experience and I enjoyed it thoroughly

As I navigate around Grand Cypress' version of the "Old Course" at St. Andrews, I hear the faint sound of bagpipes playing in the background. I love this course! Thank you Mr. Nicklaus for your vision. And a special thanks to all who work very hard keeping the "New Course" and the other 27 holes in terrific shape.

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.
