Really enjoyed my round here. Found a hot deal, and got paired up with some fellow travellers. Course has plenty of ways to get you, but offers generous bail out areas on most holes. Greens were in excellent condition, with plenty of undulation on the south nine. Pace of play was great for our Foursome.

Great course, first nine greens (east) were long and slow, back nine greens (north) were faster and rolled well. Overall course layout was excellent, bunkers were fine. Nice range and range balls. Pace of play was very slow, played in 4:45. Very slow foursome held up my twosome. At one point had three groups waiting on par 3 13th. We saw ranger two times, did nothing to improve pace. Try Orange County National for price.

This course was the perfect ending to our 3 day 72 hole golfcation. It’s a golf academy so if you’re an average Player like me be prepared to let them play through. Course was not crowded at all and in excellent condition. All the staff were very friendly and made us feel welcomed. I definitely recommend this course !!

Played the South/East combo and was very pleased. Played it at about 6500 yards and the greens are really the challenge. I played on Sunday morning and they had the Sunday pin placements out for sure. The greens are large and fast and if you hit it in the wrong part of the green or miss it on the wrong side, it's bogey for sure. Second time I've played the course and will be back for sure.

Our tee-off was around 8:50 and we were driving our balls down the fairway by 8:55. The pace of play was just right. The group ahead of us was just pulling out of the way every time and we never felt pressure from the group behind us. The course was in great shape with lush fairways and challenging greens. Kudos to the friendly staff inside the pro shop and out on the course. Top notch all the way.

I have played Grand Cypress a couple of times. Most recently, I played the North/South combo and thought both nines were really good, fair layouts. As this is the “high” season, however, all resort courses feel entitled to inflate their rates even though most courses, including Grand Cypress, are not in great shape because of the recent dry conditions and heavy play. While the greens were fast, they were pretty hard and bumpy from inconsiderate golfers not repairing/tamping down their ball “dents”. Fairways were thin and spotty in places with a ton of unrepaired divots. I ran out of sand well before the home hole trying to repair divots around my ball in the fairways. Pace of play, however, was very good with a 4:15 round. Overall, I don’t think GC is worth the premium fee they now require, especially for locals like me. Come October, however, I will be back when the price is more reasonable and the course is in better shape.

This is the first time playing Grand Cypress. We normally try to play one higher end course during our one week stay. This was our fourth round for the week and we have become accustom to 5 hour rounds. We enjoyed the course, player friendly for all levels. A lot of water but the fairways are generous. I loved the multi tiered greens, very challenging and unlike anything we would normally see. Very enjoyable round and was able to save considerably by booking through Golf Now. The only negative was that the bunkers weren’t raked from previous play. I would give them a pass for that on this day as there was a tournament in front of us.

Always love to come back. This is a must in Orlando. It was a very cold day, so it was not very easy to play. But tee boxes, fairways and bunkers were in very good condition. Greens rather fast and true. Not many players out there, so the pace was around 3 ¾ hours for a twosome. We had to wait a bit on several holes on the second nine, but it did not really bother. Staff not seen a lot, but the starter and pro shop very friendly.

Great course, but my only issue is when you make the turn we went into the clubhouse to get some food and it seemed as though they discourage it by telling us that they have no food options inside that is quick. They tell you to go back on the course as the cart girl has sandwich’s. They said to let the Marshall know and he will call the cart. It took 4 holes before she showed up and I was starving the whole time. They need a better way to deal with golfers who are making the turn!

They might want to consider an option where the golfer can call from the 8th hole to place an order for food like a burger or something that would be ready when they finish the 9th hole.

The North course was more open than the South course, but still had some challenging holes. The South course had some really challenging elevated greens with water and sand traps at the sides. The mounding sometimes made it difficult to see where the ball went.
