First, the track was good. Wide open, very forgiving and in really god shape. Greens weren't that fast but with the undulations speed would kill your average weekend player. Overall I really enjoyed the track and the conditions. HOWEVER, my experience started from the minute I checked in. Guy working the desk could care less I was ther much less that I was paying full rack rate. So OK, I get out of the pro shop into my cart, hit some balls and off to the first. Everything went down from there. I was paired up with some good guys, BUT...1) didn't see a bev cart for 6 holes. 2) By the 6th hole WE WERE 1:50 into round (yes, you read that right). 3) the second time we saw the bev cart, she had drinks, but no ice for the cooler (keep in mind it was an hour between 1st and 2nd visit). 3) one of the carts in our group died 14 holes in. Maybe not the end of world except for the fact that we had already seen 4 carts being towed. 4) when I called about the dead cart I was on hold for 7 minutes (made palatable by the fact that I had warm beer and was playing a 5:30+ hour round. 4). Was a 5:30+ hour round and I paid full rack. Was a good track, but the cons far outweighed any pros.

The links fairway layout and large double-flag greens makes for a refreshing break from the usual course layout. The course was in great shape and the staff courteous. Pace of play was slow due to a large group (some seven foursomes) having just started play before we teed off. Was able to take advantage of a great rate which made it even more enjoyable.

This was one of our two favorite golf course after playing 6 straight days, but I recommend you download the Grand Cypress New Course App before you arrive at the course and bring your charger cord. The cart has a USB connection so you can use your phone or tablet all round.

A rare links style layout modeled after St. Andrews. The layout was fair and fun & we were finally able to find and fix our ball mark LOL. It's has been so dry in Orlando, most greens of other courses we played were rock hard, but Grand Cypress watered theirs sufficiently so the balls would hold the green. The app will allow you to "see" the hidden pot bunkers so a must. The only bummer was around Hole 14, we ran into a 6-some (4 were playing, but 6 were all putting) slowing play down considerable. Irritating, but it was such as wonderful course, even this little hiccup did little to dampen our enjoyment.

Thoroughly enjoyed the round. Course was in great shape. Challenging but playable. Very friendly staff. Complimentary locker and shower facility was a bonus as we were flying out after the round. Pace was a bit slow but definitely recommend this course. Ice and water machines on the course another great bonus!

We stayed at the Villas at Grand Cypress. First class accommodation. The property is an Oasis of tranquility in the surrounding Disney concophaney.

You also have access to the Hyatt Grand Cyprss which is a phenomenal property.

Grand Cypress features the New Course, a replica of St Andrews plus and additional 27 holes.

Golf conditions are excellent. You can save on green fees if willing to play in afternoon.

The Clubhouse features a very nice bar and restaurant. The food is very good. Loved the breakfast. Finally the staff is unfailingly polite and helpful. The property has other amnenities; pool, pool bar, exercise facility, conference center, fishing and free bikes.

Highly recommend this facility.

The new course had a few critical reviews about hidden bunkers, blind shots and unappealing views. Well welcome to true links golf. I have golfed in Scotland, Ireland and England and much of what you find is well replicated. If I had one issue it would be that the greens are a little quick for the undulations. It made some putting quite adventerous, however, fun!

If you're looking for a golf experience like none other, this side of the ocean, then this may be the course for you. Nicklaus designed this course with the famed Scottish Old Course in mind and he did a wonderful job. Double greens, little rough, berms, massive fairways and of course devilish pot bunkers!

Truly a different experience with conditions that are second to none as well.

Played this course in 1990 and again this month and it isn't showing any wear and tear at all, great job by the greens keeper and crew.

Played a round at the New Course while on a business trip and had a great time. Very unique type of layout for Florida, especially some of the holes that have double greens. It was very windy so some holes were extremely challenging, but it was fun regardless. Definitely one of those courses that would benefit to play again to understand course layout and green complexes. Fairways are very generous!

A bit overhyped. I might have expected too much based on prior reviews, it is a nice course and nice layout, but everyone else talked it up so much it didn't live up to the hype. Back 9 was in better shape than the front. Mats on the driving range was disappointing.

If you're looking for great golf in Orlando FL, where you don't have to drive around to play some different tracks you'll be surprised that you can get in many rounds here on the same property. I played 2 different Jack Nicklaus designs in one day. Avg cost per round $100 all in. Will be back to play New Course again. If you can't make it to St. Andrews, play here instead
