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.

My husband and I are snowbirds and we have been playing this course for the last 8 years. When we arrive in Florida this is the first course we play. Once our golf swing is under control we play the South course which is challenging but very enjoyable to play. Play both courses and believe me you will not regret it.

We were followed by a man on spraying herbicides just feet away. Wind blew it all over us. After 3 holes if this we got fed up and skipped the next 2 holes to get away from him. We were very upset about the exposure to outdoor herbicides... he was spraying the tall weeds around ponds. I mentioned it to a staff member in pro shop and he said it could not be their staff... who then??no offer was made to make up for the holes we missed.

Would not go back.

Great short course that’s in really nice shape right now. The winter rye looks to be in for the most part and the greens look good and roll very true. Some challenging holes that require course management type shots so you have to think. Perfect place to practice wedges and mid irons. Staff is always nice love this place I’ll keep going back.
