We had a great experience at Grand Cypress and its "New" Course. It was fun to get a sense of how the "old" course back in Scotland might play.

The course is very well maintained, tee boxes, fairways and bunkers in great shape and greens rather very fast, some strongly undulated. But the track itself is not very interesting and beside deep bunkers, which really can be avoided, and just a creek on 4 holes, there is nothing really challenging. The pace was quiet OK. Overall it is nice, but I would always prefer to play North / South / East at the Grand Cypress.

We played a twilight round @ the New Course at Grand Cypress for our first round of our Orlando vacation. The bag drop and valet were on point as well as the pro shop. The range was good as well as the short game and bunker area. It is a nice place to arrive a bit early to warm up.

The starter was great, apparently they were split teeing earlier in the day and we were scheduled to go off 10 but he checked the course and found it was OK to let us go off 1 which is what we would prefer. The cart "girl" was great we saw her multiple times and she was friendly and did not interrupt us.

The course was in good shape and the round went off without a hitch.

This course is set up as a links course. Tries to mimic Saint Andrews on some holes. Really fun shared greens different than the typical Florida course. Fairways and greens are immaculate. Great course

I found this course a bit strange. Everybody seemed to be playing everybody else’s fairways & the greens with 2 flags was a bit dangerous on some of the holes, with blind shots to greens with people putting on a different hole. The course it’self was like a links, nice enough layout with some nice holes & the greens were ok. But for the price tag I wouldn’t play again.

At first we were to tee off on number 1 with another twosome, but the starter said number 10 was open and that we should start there. I don't know if she did that because the other twosome were two men and our twosome was my husband and myself or not. It would have been fine except that when we got out to the 11th hole we realized that we were behind a large group of men that were playing some sort of scramble which made the pace of play EXTREMELY SLOW. We couldn't ask to go through because the foursomes ahead of them were all a part of the same large outing. It took over 5 hours to play which is not enjoyable. In the future if we get to play here again, I would hope that the round would not be so slow.

The course itself was in excellent condition. With the mounds and the pot bunkers, it makes for a challenging, but fun course to play. I would like to play it again sometime.

There was a slight build up on the 1st because with the three courses they had a delay on buggies so when we got to the 1st tee, the starter moved us to the 10th tee. Had a great round as regards the pace of play. Course was in great shape. It’s a must play with holes replicating St. Andrews in Scotland.

Great links course, we enjoyed playing the course. Somethings were a little disappointing, there was no information about the layout of the holes at the tee box areas, like all the other courses we played, we were playing blind, no GPS device in the carts like all the other good courses we played. On the first day of our golf week my driver broke, all the courses we played during the week loaned me a premium drive at no cost but not at Grand Cypress.

We booked an afternoon tee off time, the place was packed. There were no buggies prior to teeing off, probably because people were taking too long on the course. The place of play when we did get out there was very slow & it was cold so that made it worse , we played 12 holes & came off. Apart from that all was good.

Played a number of top courses in the area during this week and surprisingly found this to be a favorites. The course was in great condition and it was a lot of fun trying to navigate the various bunkers, including pot bunkers, in and around the fairways, which you usually don't experience. Also refreshing to play an open course without trees and shrubs being a factor.
