Your approach to the 8th at Grand Cypress New needs to cross a burn, and you'll drive your cart over a stone bridge toward the green. Kitschy? Sure, but chalk it up to commitment to a certain aesthetic. Photo submitted by TimGavrichGA

Marketing worked but course didn’t
The whole “1 and 18 are replicas of St. Andrews” is marketing at its finest. If you can’t hit a fairway here you need to find another sport. The entire course is a fairway. The links style setup seems out of place. I would liked to have seen the other courses here. I would recommend those over the New Course. Bunkers here are mean serious business. Not worth $120
Royal & Ancient
Never played the course in Scotland so can’t compare. Some great features in particular the holes that have the water features in front of the greens. Thought the greens were slow today, perhaps due to the heavy downpour yesterday. Staff were super, very helpful and friendly.
We will return to try and better our score today
Haven’t played a course like this before. I believe it is somewhat a replica of St. Andrews at times. Enormous fairways that at times leave little idea where you might be best to aim for. Most greeens are double greens, white and yellow flags denoting front and back nine. There is not any help on scorecard or on tee boxes as to where to aim for, how far out the multiple pot bunkers lay etc. Having said the aforementioned, I did enjoy the experience as it was completely different than any course I have played. Many of the greens are very interesting with little margin for error. Course conditions were fantastic, greens in particular quick. There are countless, punishing bunkers that you must avoid to score. Also be aware of a wandering water hazard on theee or four holes in front of greens. Staff was top notch along with practice facility. Worth playing once.
Played the links, had a great time. Much different from the courses I’m used to.
Great course, wish they had hole layout on scorecard!
This is a very good golf course, and was in excellent condition. There were a few holes we had trouble determining where to hit our tee shots. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I’d give this experience five stars!
This is a very good golf course. Great conditions. Pretty wide open but lots of traps and some holes have great character. Highly recommend.
Good First Round Course
Good course for your first round. Lots of room for driving.Course conditions were excellent but pace of play was slow. 4 hours & 45 mins on a Sunday afternoon with a 2:00 pm tee time -maybe that's normal???
Problems with tee off times
On a Friday 1 of February
We arrived at the first tee at 7 minutes prior to my scheduled in but staff starter forced us joining with
2 some they’re already playing on the course.
I believe he’s been confused someone did not show up at their scheduled tee time so we were joined with them on 3rd. Hole.
Fun Track. Great alternative too other disney resort courses!
Course was a fun layout especially being first round off the plane. Limited water and wide open but lots of hidden bunkers. Download the app as it has good flyover of holes so you can see where to hit it if it's your first trip around!
very beautiful golf course
parcours très large
attention aux drapeaux double green très souvent
et green très rapides avce beaucoup de pente
attention beaucoup de monde
The new course
Was a great layout. Beware the pot bunkers. They can eat you alive. One of the best golfing days we ever had.
Nicklaus’ homage to The Old Course
Grand Cypress New is a must if you’re in the Orlando area. This homage to The Old Course winds through the property with plenty to remind you of Scotland. From the replica of the Seilcan bridge to the burn running across #1, 8, and 10, to bunker and the Principals Nose, you’ll harken back to the most revered golf in the world. Course amenities are top notch with a pleasant, attentive staff. Pay the price. You won’t be disappointed
Not quite a Scottish links
The New Course attempts to duplicate a Scottish links, but doesn't really pull it off. The fairways are wide open with little or no penalty for missing the fairway. The greens are nice, but the soft, green overseeded doesn't match the firm, brown, dormant putting surface of a Scottish layout. Don't expect to see mammoth pot hole bunkers on the New Course either.
Great Day at Grand Cypress (New)
I usually golf twice a week and strive to play different courses when possible, so it was time to give Grand Cypress a try. Reviews for the New course were very good so I came in with high hopes and we were not disappointed. The course was in excellent condition from tee to green, and pace of play happened to be very good, even with a crowded course. Fun layout with several semi-blind shots. We look forward to playing the other course that they offer the next time we head out.
Nice Course but Bumpy Cart Paths + Expensive F&B
Great value $49 on Sunday afternoon 12:30 tee time. The fairways and greens were in good condition but not great. I gave myself 2 drops on the fairways due to abnormal ground conditions (I am a rules official). Some of the greens were a bit splotchy. The course itself has many pot bunkers and demands shot planning and shot making. The greens are quite undulating and some have false fronts. It is not uncommon to see your ball roll off the green if it lands in the wrong place. All putts are demanding. The cart paths are atrociously bumpy. They shake the crap out of you and likely damage the cart. Better to drive on the fairway. It is disappointing that a course of this quality would have such poor cart paths. F&B is outrageously overpriced both at the restaurants and from the refreshment cart. (The turkey sandwich from the cart was good but really dry and needed mayo.)
I indicated that the pace of play was good because we were the first group off the back nine at 12:30. However I must explain that I signed up as a single on GolfNow and joined 3 other golfers who did not maintain a good pace. Regardless of handicap they all went through an extensive pre shot routine that would make a PGA Tour pro envious and also after putting out they would often replace the ball and attempt the putt again even with the group behind waiting to hit their approach shots or waiting on the tee of the par 3s. I feel that this type of behaviour is very callous. This is not a reflection on the course but only on the clientele that play there.
What a track
Enjoyed this links style course very much. Bunkered very well so bring your A game. It would help if the course came with some on-cart GPS or guidebook as there are some blind shots for first time players of the course.
Beautiful Links Course
Grand Cypress-New Course is a beautiful Links -style course. Staff is friendly and very accommodating, and the course is in great shape tees through greens. Unfortunately, parking facilities don't accommodate a busy golf day like yesterday. Pace of play was very good given the solidly booked course. However, my foursome was followed by an impatient single, and allowing a single out on an especially busy Sunday seems imprudent since letting him play through was not an option and his obvious impatience was a bit annoying. All in all, a good day at a very nice course.
