Better courses for similar price range to play
My first review on Golf Now because of such a bad day at this course. First - just trying to find it is not easy. The signs on the way in are not well marked. Google maps does not have the exact location of the Cypress course. I got lucky and saw a little sign that said Oaks/Cypress bag drop. Other than that you have to go in the Oaks club house to the Oaks Pro shop to pay for the unmarked Cypress course. The woman at the pro shop laughed at me when I said I could not find the Cypress pro shop because there is none. So if you have never been there before - make sure you know where you are going.
Then - I had 11:30 tee time for 2. We drove the cart away from the Oaks Shop and across the street to the Cypress starter. We got there at 11:10. There were 5 foursomes waiting at the tee box. So I putted and chipped for 10 minutes expecting to be called to tee off and nothing happened. I finally went to the starter to ask why I was not playing and he said there would be a delay. What happened I asked - there was a group (maybe 11:00) who did not tee off for some reason until 11:15 and the starter DID NOTHING to make them tee off. He basically was not even watching. Then the starter told me that the next group was 4 - foursomes of 'regulars' who had more people show up than they were expecting and he just let them take all the tee times even though they did not have any. "Nothing I can do" the starter told me. So we ended up 40 minutes late for tee off. I had a guest with me or I would have just left.
But the real reason not to play here is the place is a dump. The tee boxes are sand and weeds. The fairways are good enough but nothing special. The greens are very slow. I usually play at Osprey Point, Atlantic National and Atlantis. All have great greens that are reasonably fast. For the $67 I paid to play this place I would pay a little more to play the other places for sure or go to Pompano Muni course and get the same conditions for less money
We played Cypress. The course in its day I am sure was beautiful and could be if it was cared for. Condition was awful, tee decks uneven,full of weeds, fairways also full of weeds and clover with lots of bare spots. Greens were good and the only good thing about the course. There is no ranger pace of play slow. We waited on every hole and took 5.5 hours for the round. Don’t get fooled by the ClubLink reference as it’s not. We won’t be back!
Worst clublink course in north america. Dog park.
First off, Extremely confusing to find the cypress course. Got there and still wasnt even sure if we were in the correct pro shop. Being from Canada, all the “Clublink” courses up here are in great shape almost any time you play them (play 3-4 different tracks a year). This was the largest reason we chose to play this course over the many options around the area. The first thing you notice is how dumpy the place is. Didnt find a level tee box all day, and not one of them had good quality grass. Weeds and sand on every single tee box. No clear yardage blocks on the tee decks to pace out and get a yardage. Fairways were the best part of the whole course but nothing compared to clublink tracks in Canada. We played around 10:30 and it was sunny and 30 degrees (think thats 80 something F) and even then the greens were So slow it was like putting on a shag rug. Also given how hot it was, we assumed the cart girl would be coming around frequently to supply us with water beer etc, but once we had reached the 10th and realized there was no halfway we had to call the club house to get the cart girl to come out and she met us at the 12th. Safe to say the course reminded us more of a cow pasture or dog park than a quality clublink course. Safe to say I would never go back, and I’m genuinely surprised clublink has an affiliation with palm aire, it is far from the quality I am used to seeing at their facilities. Wouldnt play for more than $20.
Regular on line pricing was lower than Hot Deals pricing. The same was true for the sister course Oaks which I played earlier in the week.
Course is priced right.
Not the greatest course but its a great value. If your looking for a good course to play without spending over 100 a round you will be happy with this course. Greens are not that challenging. But the course layout is nice
Staff very nice and helpful. I would play there again.
Played this course many times, had a great day. Course is in very good condition, greens are fast and run true.
Love the course
The landscaping and fair ways are a great experience.
Course is in great condition.
Course conditions were very good. Pace of play was too slow.
Both course just need a lot of TLC and work. They're older courses with decent layouts but the conditions were less than I expected. I played the Oaks which is less of a value than the Cypress.
Cypress Not Playable
i have never lost so many balls just off the fairway. Poorly mowed fairways, tee boxes poorly maintained to the point that some were just dirt. i understand this course doesn't charge much but for the price, there are really good courses for about the same amount that are in far better shape.
You may want to look elsewhere
Teexd off @ 3:08 on su day afternoon by myself and moved right thru 18 with no problem. The course is in great shape and the greens were especially nice. They were smooth and fast. Overall great place to play.
