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.

from the time we valet parked i was in love with this place. the locker rooms were exquisite and well appointed. the pro shop even had a hat i bought on sale..this course made me wish i had brought my camera. each hole was more beautiful than the last one. the greens were quite challanging and undulating with several different levels. play the course. you will find danger lurking insome of the large sand traps and fairways that are sloped toward the water. bring your A GAME .

i can"t wait to play it again.

Played the North and South. Nice layout and very good condition. A few of the pin placements were a bit ridiculous and with speed of the greens I felt it a tad unfair to the average golfer IMO especially when you hit above the hole with a wedge and balls falls off the green the opposite direction entirely. But that's my only gripe. Course is very friendly off the tee and some great holes. I really enjoyed playing it though and think it benefits someone visually if you can play there a few times. Great food at the clubhouse too, not typical fare of the normal golf courses I play.

Very well maintained course! Very pretty views and greens are in excellent shape! Beware of the fast greens. Very hard to get the ball to stick, very hard and lightning fast. Very challenging greens but forgiving course. Had a great time!

We would highly recommend Grand Cypress. Course was in great shape. Played East/North. North is a bit more forgiving and East is a bit more challenging and gorgeous out there. Staff and facilities are top shelf. Make sure you look up Eddie Kasper, 1st class gentleman.
