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.

Thanks GolfNow for making it affordable with a Hot Deal!

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.

Had a great round here, this was one of the nicest courses I've played, for a mid handicap it was great to see the open fairways.

The practice faculties were top notch as well

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

Played Grand Cypress New course first time. Found a lot of hidden bunkers on course which has a lot of wide open area to hit to. If you have never played a links course I would recommend playing here. Greens were very smooth and fast.

This course was great to play. The first and 18th are exact replicas of he Old Course, which is kind of a cool feel. The rest of the course plays with large undulating hills and tough approaches to the green. Some holes lacked framing, which led to confusion about where to drive and approach. Greens are massive, and he fact that they run so fast/smooth will surely lead to three-putts. Overall, a really fun round that is nothing like what you'll find in FL.

It was an interesting course to play with the links style and some resemblance to The Old Course in St. Andrews. It was not your ordinary FL golf, so it was a nice change of pace.
