The New course was a very unique, challenging and fun course to play but the pace was terrible. Teed off at 1:40pm but were only able to get in about 14 holes before dark at 6pm because of about a 6 hour pace. Can’t believe course staff didn’t do anything about it. The course itself was really neat and glad we got to experience it while in town on vacation, just wish we could have played the whole thing.

4 1/2 hours to play 15 holes Tee off at 1:33 didn't get whole round in. Paid for 18 holes.

On pace for almost 5.5 hour round of golf.

This course is a must play in the Orlando area. It is a very good representation of the old course at St Andrews.

The double greens were huge and the greens were true and quick. Lots of subtle breaks.

Be wary of the fairway pot bunkers.

We got held up by the group in front and a marshal helped us get through them.

I have been fortunate enough to be able to play Grand Cypress's New Course at least once a year over the last 10 years and it is always in phenomenal shape.

Greens are quick and smooth, but very challenging as they have a lot of movement. I do not find this to be a negative but something to be aware of before playing. It is imperative to hit the ball on the green in the correct quadrant in order to score well.

None the less I always have a great time on the New Course and keep coming back. It is an experience that isn't replicated in Central Florida.

I finally played Jack Nicklaus tribute to the Old Course and I was thoroughly impressed. To play a course where you are not sure the correct line on your drive makes one think, I love that. This is not an automatic here the only fairway for this hole, there are multiple angles to the hole from the fairways. And I love the double greens complexes, there is certain community on the golf course that you are never far from other players. The conditions - outstanding, the mental level of golf is always on high alert, the layout - awesome. This should be on any golfer's bucket list to play. My only regret is that everyone takes a cart, this would be even better as a walking only course. The clubhouse is excellent and a little pricey - but the food was so well prepared that I felt I received my money's worth. Great 19th hole view of the surrounding golf courses and an awesome staff at the restaurant that never let our drinks empty.

We played after heavy rain and to our surprise there are no cart paths along the fairways so we could drive on the fairways! Fun course and every green is a double green. They are very large and challenging. There are very few trees on the course so higher handicap players are not always looking for balls. Lots of sand traps everywhere to make up for no trees. We will be back to play again!

The course was in excellent condition. It’s a links course so I had a little trouble following the fairway turns. A local twosome joined me and and made it easier. No GPS on my cart but my golf app was helpful . Ample distance markers on the course. The greens have a lot of challenges but are not super fast. A must play course if you are in the area.

This is a great course. We've played it the last two years on our annual golf trip to Orlando. Last year we didn't tee off until 30 minutes after our tee time. This past Tuesday we wait 70 minutes before teeing off. Based on my experience I wouldn't recommend this course on a remotely tight time schedule.

Great links course and great conditions. It can be a bit challenging for higher handicappers. Foursome in front of us wisely decided to play a scramble format. We heard a lot of laughs from them. This beautiful course can be enjoyed by all.
