Big Cypress Golf Club is home to two golf courses, the championship South Course and the executive North Course. Located in Lakeland, Big Cypress is situated between Orlando and Tampa. The courses are part of a gated retirement community called Cypress Lakes. The North is less challenging and offers a gentler version of the South that is more approachable to beginners. It is a fairly narrow layout that features tree-lined fairways and strategically placed sand bunkers. Water also has a strong presence on the course, coming into play on a total of 12 holes. The layout is player-friendly and offers several risk-reward opportunities. It is a great for beginners and more advanced players will enjoy it for a quick round or a warm-up for the South Course. In addition to the two golf courses, there is also a driving range and putting green.

Should have known better

I was looking for some place new to take my wife her first time out this year and not have to spend all day. So after reading the review I thought well let give it a shot reviews said Best Executive Course around well obviously by the Title of this review that in my humble opinion is not the case it’s average at best. I will not be returning and if I wanna play a Good executive course there is one in Auburndale, Fl I feel is much better all around The Hamptons Golf & Country Club. But as I said just my humble opinion.

Big Cypress North Executive Course

First time playing the Executive Course at Cypress Lakes. It was cold and very windy today so not many out there this afternoon. I had a lot of fun and played well so that was a huge bonus along with the $20 it set me back with cart. The greens were recently redone and they are hard, true and fast which coming down from soggy cold Baltimore made it feel like mid-season golf in February! EXCELLENT!!

Immaculate

In the best shape I think I’ve ever seen it. New greens are still hard, obviously because they’re new but wow they roll fantastically. Absolutely love coming here and the service is always very welcoming. Beautiful scenery and great place to work on your irons.

A Great Executive Course

The course re-opened in early Oct 2019 with new greens. As of mid-Oct, the greens are nearly perfect, with a little TLC still occurring around the fringes. This was our first time playing the North (Executive) Course, and it is perhaps the best short course I have played. The maintenance and quality of the course matches their superb South Course. With a 9 handicap, it was a good test of irons, chipping, and putting. My wife also enjoyed the course, playing from the forward of 2 sets of tees. Do not think of this as a beginners course, as even the skilled are challenged a bit with water on nearly every hole.
