Grand Cypress Golf Club (North, South, East course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1984

Grand Cypress Golf Club (North, South, East course): CLOSED IN 2019 for a major redesign; to re-open in 2020/21 as a new Jack Nicklaus designed 18-hole layout.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Orlando's impressive Grand Cypress Resort, located next door to Walt Disney World, boasts 45 holes of Jack Nicklaus Signature golf. The original North and South nines, dating from 1984, were given a major overhaul by Nicklaus in 2007/08. Together with the East-nine, this interchangeable set of three nine-hole loops form what is referred to as the North, South, East course. In 1988 Grand Cypress added its 18-hole, Scottish-styled New course.

The North, South, East provides a testing and classically Floridian golfing challenge. Some stretches on this well-groomed layout are quite open, others more tree-lined, while an array of small lakes and ponds ensure that several holes are accompanied by a distinctly watery threat.

The skilfully crafted layout contains Nicklaus's trademark variety of bunkering. Sand traps large and small adorn and defend the excellent collection of doglegging and straightaway designs.

On the North and South courses, the well bunkered par-3 8th holes are played to a shared green, while the testing par-4 9th holes are played on either side of the same small lake, once again bringing you to a large, undulating double green. Although not dramatically different, each of the three nines has its own character and challenges, with many players regarding the East-nine as the prettiest, but tightest course. In keeping with the top-quality facilities at Grand Cypress the clubhouse provides a very comfortable venue from which to conduct your post-round review.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
