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.

The course could be excellent or may have been in the past, but the greens were terrible and slow. They must have had a problem and there was significant burned out areas and they compounded the problem with some kind of granular fertilizer it seemed. We should have complained. Usually the fee you pay is comparable to the course. Beer cart was great. Staff was friendly. Pace of play was expected this time of year. No issue with the course layout and fairways were fine...just not worth the fee. Wish I had taken pictures of the greens.

Grand cypress east/north was a fun track. Conditions were great overall. Greens slower the. Expected. Resort needs to give out free divot repair and starters give instruction on fixing divots cleaning bunkers. I rate four out of five. Not on value though. Play less expensive courses with better conditions

This is easily the greatest course I have ever played. We got a deal on GolfNow for $60 each and it is a course I would have definitely payed $120 each for. Incredibly stunningly beautiful course with an amazing layout that really challenges you in a very fun way. The greens were fast and true, the traps were perfectly raked, the fairways were beautifully manicured, the rough was challenging but well kept, and the tee boxes were beautiful. You can tell that a lot of thought and hard work went into this course and it has payed off. We were in front of a foursome and behind a foursome but we were never held up at all. The ranger does a really good job of keeping things moving. Everyone on the staff is super friendly and they dont even seem to care about working for tips. They are happy to do their jobs. On a course this nice you usually expect to run into some jerks but everyone playing the course was nice and friendly. Would absolutely recommend this course to anyone if they are in the Orlando area. I will be back

The place is amazing and the layout is extremely fair but also challenging. Always play this when I'm in Orlando, great bar/restaurant for after the round and a must stop. Pro shop has great selection, though staff was not as friendly this time, but still ok.
