Carved from pine, oak, and magnolia trees, Cypress Lakes Golf Club tumbles through gently hilly terrain, a rare landscape for a Florida course. Formerly known as the Solutia Golf Club, Cypress Lakes is also covered with hundreds of crepe myrtles and blooming azaleas and of course, cypress trees. Water comes into play on a few holes and the trees can prove to be tricky but the challenges of the golf course are balanced with the generous width of the fairways. The course's playability appeals to a variety of different skill levels, especially with four sets of tees available as well. In addition to the course, there are also extensive practice facilities available at Cypress Lakes Golf Club including an all-grass driving range, a practice putting green, and a practice bunker.

Course is in good condition!

I’ve played this course on several occasions and always have a great time. The staff is always pleasant. However, it would have been nice to know before we started it was the day they had their Club Championship for the adults and youth , therefore play was extremely slow. Longest round of my life. Had I not paid in advance through the app I would have picked a different day.

Very hot day!

Located in the Florida Panhandle, suffering from a 45+ day drought, with daily temperatures in the high 90s, this course was in great condition. Amazing how great the condition of fairways, greens, and roughs were over the entire course. Will definitely play again...but when the temps are much lower.

Best Layout, Best Condition

I know of no other course that has better greens or better greens complex, i/e. bunkers, collars, close chip areas. The slopping hills and doglegs are fun, par 3's are cool looking and challenging. Excellent carts. Not much of a clubhouse so come here to golf, not to eat or hang around. Parking lot is a disaster but probably costs too much to repave right now.

Better Than Most

I was very surprised to see the good condition of this course. Tee boxes and fairways are very nice for this hot summer. Greens are slow but true. It is in better shape than other courses around the 9 mile Rd, I-10 area. Pro shop, parking lot and any amenities are lacking severely but for actual golf, this is the place. Nice carts too.

This is the kind of course for me. Wide open fairways and minimal but strategic water hazards. Had a great time. Hope to play again soon.

Enjoyable Golf

Budget Priced with online special. Greens were quick. Fairways were thick Bermuda.

My only non issue picky unwarranted complaint would be that the pin placement hole cuts were beveled to high. A slow approaching rolling putt would would veer away from the cup because it wasn't set deep enough. The rim was set to high. Made it more challenging so not really a complaint.

Decent track

Course was wet from all of the rain. Wish they had layout printed. Good value but was out of the way for us. Not sure how golf now went from 15 miles to 48 minute drive. Staff was very friendly. Some condition problems on a few greens. Guys that were mowing were courteous, shut down and waited.

Pace of play hurts this course

Fairways are in good shape. The greens are recovering from an early season aeration but roll fairly smooth and are considerably faster than normal for this course, which is a positive improvement. The recurring issue with this course is the slow pace of play. There is often a marshall making rounds, including today, but not actually marshalling. Beware members, where fivesomes are common, who won't let a 2, 3-, or 4-some play through unless you're willing to skip over them to continue to the next hole.

The course is soft and plays long with tiny greens. The turf is extremely inconsistent and sparse in a lot of areas. On the day we played the front nine was closed, but we were not informed of this ahead of time. The greens have improved slightly since my last visit.

Need A Challenge

Out of the many courses I have played throughout the USA, this is the most challenging layout I have encountered. One day I may be able to meet such a grueling test. If you need that kind of challenge, I recommend this course.

Nope

Course was not in good shape. A Foursome of guys held up 3 groups for 5 holes before allowing everyone through once someone passed by them by skipping holes and let them know they were slow. No ranger help.
Our cart ran out of gas on the 6th hole. When the guy came to get it, he said they gas carts once per week on wednesdays. Strange, because they do not control which carts get used so some could have 10 rounds and some 0 in the same week.
Course conditions - very rough - greens very slow - course had lots of poor drainage/mud.
Clubhouse is a shack with outside restrooms.
Property would be better used as a landfill/subdivision.
