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.

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.

Long drive to get to first tee off

Nice layout for an executive course, but you have to drive cart a fair way to get to first tee off. Once there you have only a washroom facility if you want a drink or something to eat you have to drive all the way back to clubhouse to get it. So get everything before you start. Very wet course so if there’s any rain days before it’s always cart path only. I do like the layout, as a beginner it helps on the use of my irons.

Save Your Money!

This is the worst golf course we have played in Florida! Save your money and let the goats finish grooming this farm land. The greens are terrible, so bad that there are huge patches of raised, black earth that crunches on it as you walk never mind putting a ball through it! The tee boxes are embarrassing, worn out, and have not been maintained, like the rest of the course. The fairways have standing water and truck like tire ruts throughout. I'm trying to think of one positive thing to say and I guess that would be the pace of play is great because nobody's on the course!

Disappointment

We have played this course several times over the past years .It is a nice executive course that can be enjoyable for anyone and that is why we played there yesterday. Our wives were part of the group. The course was in generally good condition tee to green but the greens have been neglected .Several have very rough black areas, they are dead slow and the pins have not been reset in many days.Two of the pins were cut in what looked like a washed out crater.At the very least a proud greenskeeper would reset the pins regularly in an area with good healthy grass
