The golf facilities include 45 holes of award-winning Jack Nicklaus designed golf, the Grand Cypress Golf academy, a full service practice area featuring a targeted range with
complementary balls, and a clubhouse with pro shop, locker rooms with showers, restaurant and spacious lounge, plus outdoor patio.
The courses are open to resort guests, tournaments, memberships and a limited amount of public play. The 18-hole New Course is a Scottish links masterpiece featuring
numerous double green complexes, an open rolling terrain, pot bunkers and winding creeks connected by stone bridges that add a unique aesthetic quality. The 27-hole Resort
Course is a perfect compliment - with 3 tree lined designs that feature plentiful water hazards and great variety in hole design.
The images in this review are of the New Course at Grand Cypress. Six holes feature water in play, usually in the form of meandering creeks situated greenside or off the tee.
Approximately 126 sand bunkers of various shapes and sizes are scattered about the layout. Golfers will encounter some wide open fairways that wind and undulate around creek
-beds and mounding with pampas and natural high grasses always nearby.
There are 3 sets of tee boxes to choose from, with distances and slopes measuring 6773 yards/121 slope, 6181 yards/115 slope and 5280 yards with a slope of 112 from the red
tee areasA good sand game is important, and players will have to execute some high approaches to several greens that present little room for error, with creeks/canals situated
immediately in front of or behind the putting surfaces.
Informer GPS systems are mounted on each cart, to provide accurate information from tee to pin. This is a wonderful resort golf experience, and one that can be enjoyed by a wide
range of players. For more info, visit our page for the course with direct link to their website by clicking here.
