The North, South and East Nines offer a variety of mental and physical stimuli that test accuracy rather than strength and distance. The original North-South combination, marked by sharply ledged fairways, tall shaggy mounds and plateau greens perched above water or sand, is a demanding, target-style test. The sportier, more wooded East Nine is more generous, with less bunkering allowing for more run-up shots. Test your skill on our beautiful East 5 island hole, which if you come up short, you may find yourself in the water. Although the North, South and East Nines have their own distinct qualities, they complement each other beautifully to make three different 18 hole combinations. The North, South and East Nines offer a variety of tee boxes making the courses enjoyable for top level golfers and beginners as well.
Within these 27 holes, the Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed North, South, and East Nines provide three distinctly unique 18-hole masterpieces. For the full round of 18, courses can be combined as the North-South, South-East, or East-North Course. Each combination provides a distinctive playing experience, which will challenge even the best of golfers.
In 2007 and 2008, the original North South Course was renovated and redesigned. Jack Nicklaus came back to Grand Cypress to change play on several of the holes. The end result is a longer course featuring course conditions that are even more grand than before.
