Loved this Nicklaus copy of the old corse at St Andrews. Trick but fair. Loved not playing super narrow fairways lines with gunge and ponds. Play the tips for fun of it.

I typically play the NSE tracks at Grand Cypress, actually booked the New Course by accident, but I will definitely put this course into my rotation. It was in great shape, tee to green. Only concern was pace of play because of high handy cappers in front of our group.

The New Course is one of my favorites. It is a links course, and thus does not often severely penalize a wayward drive, but the greens make up for that. They have many contours and are uniformly fast.

While the weather was too hot, the course was in fabulous condition, and the summer rates ($54) were very good. I just wish it was closer to my home. The only drawback for regular play is the Disney World traffic on I-4, which can make travel miserable.

For people like me that love wide open fairways, this course is the best. Having said that, with the traps being set all over the place and the water right in front of a number of greens and the green undulation make a ton of the pin placements very diffucult, the course is sneaky difficult. It was just an awesome time (first off on a friday at 8am), the course was in great shape and the value was ridiculous($50) for the course.

Played the New Course (no its not new,1988) at Grand Cypress and found it to be as Challenging as you wanted it to be. There were several Tee options for all Levels of Golf. Considering the amount of Rain that the Orlando area had, this course Drained Very Well and was in Great Condition. If you have never played this course, IT's a Must Play! The Greens were shared by two holes, one out (Yellow Flags) and one in (White Flags) . These Greens are massive and no way interfered with the other holes. The only Complaint we had, was that the Pins were Cut just over mounds causing some very Nasty Putts. The Pins WERE NOT cut with pace of play in mind. But over all, would Play this course without a doubt over again.

First time playing Grand Cypress and decided to play the New Course because it was a links course, mimicked St. Andrews, and just looked beautiful in pictures I had seen. Tee'd off at 8am and played in 4.5 hours. Course was in fantastic shape from Tee to Green. You could tell they had aerified the greens somewhat recently, but they were recovering well and rolled well. We found a great deal on GolfNow and cannot wait to go back. Cart girl was out and there were ice and water stations on the course as well. I highly recommend this Gem in Orlando, FL!

Disappointing is a good description. It started with the starter putting us as a four ball then changing his mind after we had hit our tee shots. No towels on a hot day and they couldn't be bothered to get some for us. No GPS which is silly on that course with some many blind shots and a row with the group in front about hitting through. Grass far too long on the fairways for a links course.

I cannot think of anything positive about the round.

Prepare yourself for a slow round especially on the weekend. Other than that the place is outstanding. Recommend sneaking in on a week day to avoid the weekend warriors playing from the tips when they probably shouldn't be.

One of the best course's I have played in the Orlando area & I have played all the Disney course's Champion's Gate & others. Don't play this course if you are just taking up the sport or if you are a bit of a hacker as the course needs looking after. Pace of play is important so keep up with those in front of you for the good of the game.

I have played the old course at Grand Cypress but never this one. So it was a very pleasant surprise to play something completely different that the other course. Pot bunkers, wide fairways, lots of twists and turns made for a fun and manageable round.

Shared greens were a challenge. Difficult to determine fairway for each course. Fairway moguls/bunkers were a challenge.

There was a group of seven ahead of us. We were just two and they did not offer to let us play through. We went around them on one hole.

Green fee was good value, but purchasing refreshments on course was ridiculously expensive for the quality of the food.
