Always enjoy playing Grand Cypress. The staff is always friendly and the course is in fantastic shape. Wide fairways with challenging approaches makes this course fun. The greens are in good shape and roll true.

We had a 8:20 tee time and they were on time. The driving range had no balls because the range did not get picked the night before. The rate for me and my 1 time a year player son was great. I thought the course was in great condition and fair set up for your average golfer. We played 18 holes in 4 hours as a twosome. We o Luck had to wait on a few of th hole on the back nine, but as a twosome I expected it. July golf weather in Florida is hot and muggy! Bring plenty of baby powder for your hands.

Play with two lovely ladies who give me plenty of instructions. I enjoy the well-maintained course and its amenity. Green is fast and undulated. Fairway is like a carpet. Several holes layout is quite challenging but make this play a unforgettable experience. Overall, this is a great public course I will definitely go back to visit.

Played South/East nines on a warm and humid day. Overall a good day, and playing as a twosome with my wife made things seem slow since we were behind a threesome playing behind a foursome . But actually got around in about 4 hours..Big complaint was South nine's greens had been recently plugged and greens were a bit bumpy. No problems with a course getting aerated, but I do feel price adjustments should be made.. At a minimum the websites should indicate when a course has been or will be aerated.

Played the North & East. Was only able to get 14 holes in before a downpour. Definitey worth the price I paid and more. Good condition and a fair challenge of distance and accuracy especially if you mix tee boxes. Only concern is a few of the greens seem to be getting stressed, but hopefully they will hold up...

Hope to come back and finish what I started or experience the other 27 holes that are part of the property.

This course is beautiful and was in great shape. Some of the greens were a bit bumpy with bare patches but overall they were in pretty good condition despite the drought. We tee'd off in the early afternoon and unfortunately the pace of play was horrible. The course was backed up and we waited for the group(s) ahead on each tee and most fairway shots. The wait on the back nine was ridiculous with often 2 groups waiting at the tee boxes. Played North/East. South course was closed. Round took well over 5 hours. Despite the slow pace, I would enjoy playing this course again next time I'm in Orlando.

This course was outstanding. It was our first time playing so not knowing the layout and greens made for a long day for the scorecard. Playing it a second time I'd make some adjustments. Fairways and greens were perfect. We wouldn't change a thing, I would recommend playing this beautiful course.

For us - a group of 11 from Scotland/France, this club sets the standard in course preparation, enjoyment, and service in the Orlando area. The greens were impeccable, the challenges varied - sometimes amusing! - and everything just right. The entire staff are eager to please. From here we go on to play the South 9 and the New.
