South Course at Big Cypress Golf & Country Club
Big Cypress Golf Club is part of a gated golf retirement community called Cypress Lakes. Conveniently located between Orlando and Tampa, the club offers two golf courses, the North and the South. The South Course is a championship layout that is more challenging than the executive-length North Course. Both courses are characterized by the abundance of water and swaying palms, offering the best of Florida golf. The South Course plays a long 6,680 yards from the back tees. The course presents a more demanding test than the North, appealing to more advanced players. Florida Golfer and Senior Golfer have recognized its challenging layout for its excellent conditions and design. Maintenance is a top priority at Big Cypress; on both courses the well manicured fairways and greens are consistently in good shape.

Best greens in Polk County
Course was in great condition today(10/01/19.) pace of play was very good. Cannot say enough about how nice the greens were.
The course was very wet from recent rain, cart path only, so that detracted from things, but I was very impressed with the condition of the course. Zoysia greens, which I don't think I've ever played before, were really nice, the superintendent is doing a great job with these. Interesting holes, lots of woods and water if you don't keep it straight but pretty forgiving overall. If you haven't played here, give it a try, I think you'll like it.
Really fun course with a few challenging holes. Was in excellent shape considering allot of rain the day before. Pace of play was great allowing for an enjoyable round. Would definitely play again.
Great in all aspects!
Greens roll silky smooth, not too fast and not too slow.
Staff is friendly and well organized as to get you out on time and spaced out perfectly.
Great course conditions and layout.
Priced right, this course is a favorite!
Fun course and the Course was in really good condition
Pro - Had a great time playing on this course. The course was well kept and worth the price. Would definitely recommend it to a friend.
Con - this is a 55+ community, so expect to have club members in their 60’s-70’s on the course. Just have to be patient enjoy the day.
this is the best conditioned course I have played lately
the greens are a little slow because they appear to have been aerated a few weeks ago rest of course in perfect shape not a weed anywhere
Better than average course with remarkable greens.
The course plays short and is all together a modestly challenging design. The fairways where a little soggy in spots and crispy in others. They are generous and the hazards are never really an annoyance. The greens are a pleasure to play and some of the nicest greens in the area. Certainly the nicest greens I’ve encountered for the price. The course value is high and defiantly worth a try. Pace of play was 3:20 mins for a foursome.
Staff in pro shop were extremely rude. Showing up on time isn’t how they do things. They want you “early” because they have “rules”
Course was okay, but nothing special. Ranger constantly followed us throughout the round.
Felt very out of place. Do not recommend to anyone.

Best course Ive played here so far course in great shape
Good pace of play, very good condition on South course
Enjoyed the round. Greens very good, and slightly on the slow side compared to others. Lots of water, and if you play off the black tees (not me), be prepared for some really long drives (200 yards +) to clear trouble.
Marshall’s out keeping pace of play quick.
Drove from Kissimmee, but unlikely to make the long journey again, as the course did not warrant it. However, if you are 30 minutes or less away, then give it a go.
Excellent course well worth my 50 minute drive. Lots of grass with good lies, true greens and nice traps. Some tough holes but fair. Good pace today

We played here 2 years ago and had a great time on and off the course,we decided to play again this year,we were not disappointed we had a great day playing course was in great condition for the amount it played,great staff in the clubhouse they know how to pour a mean drink lol,nice atmosphere about this club we all really enjoyed our day again.
St pats day golf round
Very busy. Proshop staff was very accomodating and friendly. Good bar service and very clean amenities. They could really use some new carts but did not have any issues. The course is maintained excellently. Saw some gators,turkeys,and lots of rabbits. Overall very nice day of play with good friend. Will return.
Lakeland’s hidden gem. Aside from a few tee boxes, some of the best conditions you’ll find in Lakeland. Outstanding greens year round and a good challenging course from the back tees.
Well worth playing.
We had group behind hit into us twice.
The marshall handled it very well. Seemed the young fellows didn't realize we were bound by groups in front, and that one lad could hit a longer ball than he was aware of.
The course has great features.I
I love this course been here since Nov1 and have played a lot of course s I would play this 5 Days week if I could .The Course is in great shape.
