Cypress Woods Golf and Country Club (239) 592-7860
Florida Golf Course Review
Amid the cypress trees and slash pines of the Pine Ridge region in North Naples, you'll find Cypress Woods, a Golf and Country Club with a challenging course that will bring you
face-to-face with the beauty of Florida. The upland areas, lakes, cypress heads and wildlife combine with this intriguing layout that brings players back again and again to test their
course management skills. This 6127 regulation course was designed by Florida architect Gordon G. Lewis in 1999, than fine-tuned in 2001.
This naturally beautiful layout features narrow tree lined teeing areas with wide fairways which are also narrowed by trees, and more importantly, water. Terrain throughout the
course is fairly flat providing even lies to reward accurate play. Bunkers and grass mounds do not block the greens and are generally off to the sides and behind. The medium/large
sized putting surfaces have a mild slope. Depending on the daily pin placement, huge breaking putts should not come into play at Cypress Woods.
On course yardage markers are present on the fairways of all par fours and fives, at 100, and 150 yards. Color coded flags indicate front, middle, or back pin positions on each
green. In total there are forty eight sand bunkers strategically located about the course near fairways and greenside. There are fifteen lakes/ponds which come into play on nearly
every hole, including a giant lake that runs along the left side both the par three 16th, and the long par five #4 handicap 17th.
The clubhouse features a pro shop, restaurant grill room and snack bar, outside patio for dinning with a view of the 18th green, and a fitness center. There is plenty of room for over
150 people, in door and out, for banquets and outings. Practice facilities include a targeted aqua range with grass hitting stations, a large putting green, and a short game area with
Five sets of tee areas afford players with the opportunity to choose from distances and slopes measuring 6127 yards/132 slope, 5697 yards/125 slope, 5450 yards/115 slope, 4830
with a slope of 101 for men and 115 for women, and 4170 yards with a slope of 108 for ladies hitting from the forward tees. As indicated above, this is a very difficult course for such
a short distance. With plenty of teeing options, golfers at Cypress Woods decide how challenging their round will be. The layout finishes with the two longest, the 17th and 18th are
520 plus yard par fives, a tough finish to an enjoyable round.
Cypress Woods presents a supreme challenge for golfers of all abilities, and prides itself in being lady and junior golfer friendly. For more info, visit our page for the course, with
