Coming from Jacksonville, this has been one of the best course I've played. From the fairways being well maintained to the first cut to the greens. Maintenance crew and all employees were over generous throughout. We ended up playing all 27 holes of North South East. Highly recommended.

After got rained out the last few days at nearby courses I decided to booked an early tee time and played at North/South course to beat the afternoon storm and was able to complete 18 holes. Course was in great shape and pace of play was average. Had fun with our group we even chased off a couple of snakes thinking our ball were bird’s egg (no gators seen). Plan to book early tee times on GolfNow the next few days before heading back up North.

Golfed here plenty of times as always one of the best courses in Orlando. $65 round still a little pricey for July in Florida but had a friend that really wanted to play so I obliged. Course was in good shape. Very, very wet with all the rain Orlando has been getting. Pace of play was 4 hours and 11 min for a 7:57am tee time which is very good. Overall great and will be back at some point I’m sure.

We played the north and east courses and had a great time. Each hole had difficulties to overcome. We played the blended ties blue and white then switch to all blues to keep the course challenging. The greens were in great condition but faster than other area courses. Finally the cart girls were on every other hole which help since it was almost 90 degrees.

From A to Z the entire experience was top notch. 5 stars all around. I arrived early and had lunch at the bar. Best Greek salad I’ve ever had. Staff was friendly and accommodating at every turn. Clubhouse amenities were great. I was issued a complimentary locker for my belonging and used the shower for a post round cool off and refresher. Fairways and greens were immaculate. Played the blended tees since it was my first time and the layout was sufficiently challenging without being onerous. Lots of fun. Great overall experience. You can’t beat it at the price I got on golfnow. I highly recommend you check this course out.

I have played in over a hundred golf courses in 8 different countries. The service experience at Grand Cypress was far the best service I have ever received anywhere including private courses.

From check in to check out, Robert, Thomas, Reda, Karen, George, and many others were exceptional to make me and my cousins feel welcome and helping us with anything we need.

First, I have never met a cart attendance who offered to go buy cigarettes outside the course as they thought they were sold out. Seen a few expensive private ones with caddies in Asia have offered such gesture but not at a public course.

Then after playing 2 rounds, I wanted purchase a Grand Cypress hat as a gift for my cousin who had shot the life time best score in the new course, but the shop was closed as we lost track of time washing up and relaxing in the club house. However, they opened the closed shop for me to buy the hat for my cousin who was flying out that day back to Asia.

Thank you Grand Cypress!!

What a great course. We played (myself & my son) the North/South and we loved it, greens great pace, I’d say about 9 and true. Layout was great with some really cool water holes. The East is supposed to be the best with many signature holes from Scotland in particular the Road hole at St. Andrews ( The home of Golf) we will defiantly be back. The staff were super friendly too and really helpful.

We played the South followed by the North course as the East course was closed.

Front 9 one of the toughest 9 I have played due to the quirky greens but cracking golf holes visually and layout wise.

The back 9 the North was more forgiving but still had brilliant golf holes that required good golf tee to green.

The ground staff must love looking after the course as it was in brilliant condition.

Good selection of tee colours, making for challenges to be had for all levels of golfer.

Staff were all very friendly and helpful

Would highly recommend

Played the East/North courses. East course is fun and challenging. Conditions were very good, a few greens had some thin areas but rolled true. North course greens were recently aerated but almost back to normal. Would recommend this course and will play again.

I scheduled an 8:51 tee time to specifically play the North and South. When I got there, I found out that I got moved to North and East due to aerification. Specifically didn’t want to play East but got it anyway. Making matters worse, there was no warning on aerification that had occurred on the North.

I have come here lots of times over the past 25 years. This was the first time this has happened. Hope it was an outlier. Usually pristine condition and everything goes well.

Course was in great condition considering the numerous storms we had this week. Rained out first time I tried to play, went back two days later, glad I did. Was unsure I was going to make it back so pro shop offered retail purchase instead of rain check. It was off season and the rates were great.

As I've only been playing for a year I got my first hole in one at grand cypress east course #5 par 3. The thing about it is I was by myself I have a picture of the ball in the hole, with a divot on the edge of the whole. No one was around, but that's fine. I want to give a special shout-out to Mike in the pro shop, he greeted me with kindness and professionalism, great course will be back soon.
