I’ve always had a great time at grand cypress and I finally found a good deal for the new course. It was such a cool experience playing this links style golf course! Only problem was the two some who wanted to pass us but we were waiting for a group in front of us.

Love this golf course!

Beautiful course, typical links style, wide and shared fairways, challenging green. Pace is a little slow today, if you like links style, it worth to come here to play at least once.

links styled golf course with shared greens. hard to miss a fairway even though i did miss 2. it is a hard layout to know where to go...we played the back 9 with someone familiar with the layout and it was a huge help. the front 9 he left and had to figure it out for ourselves. recommend this course especially if you want to experience something different,

I played this course a few years after it opened. It still plays challenging, but needs a refresh.

First impression were the antique rental clubs followed by a range void of practice balls and no attendant. All in all this is just an average public course versus an upscale resort course. Not worth the money

This was my first time playing Grand Cypress - New Course. I had a great time and loved the course.

However, it is Very challenging the 1st time playing the course because it is a challenge to know where to go, where is nte next tee, where the holes go, what pin is the correct pin for the hole you are playing (there are more double greens on this course than I have ever seen on one course). .

The condition of the course is fantastic. The fairways are huge and wide. TONS of bunkers all over the course. Many bunkers you can not even see from the tee box. A picture of each hole on the scorecard or a diagram of the hole at the tee box would be VERY helpful, especially for the first time playing the course.

There are pot bunkers off every tee and are difficult to navigate without some type of map or picture of the hole.

The practice area is excellent with large putting greens, great driving range and nice chipping and pitching area.

The greens are huge and are in fantastic condition with LOTS of humps, undulations and levels within each green.

Played on Friday "in season" as part of a package via Hyatt Grand Cypress hotel. Good weather, good course conditions, and a totally excellent stay at the HGC. But we chose wrong when we picked a 1:30 tee time on Friday at Grand Cypress New Course. Seems this course sends people out from both 1st and 10th tee in two loops during the day and they didn't have enough carts for all the day's golfers. .

The morning groups were slow finishing, so the afternoon tee times didn't have carts available. We checked in at 12;45 (i.e. 45 minutes early) yet the starter told us to join our 4-some in the first fairway because we were "late to the tee."

Why were we late to the tee? Because we were waiting for the crew to let us have a cart - and they weren't communicating with the starter at the New Course (maybe only at N/E/S). We had been on the putting green and waiting for the cart for 50+ minutes. So while the course was adequate enough, I'd recommend calling ahead and NOT playing if they expect to be busy.

The course and facilities are beautiful. We played the “New Course”, but were put out with a shotgun tournament. We did fine, however the pace of play was very slow as the tournament participants were drinking excessively. To top if off, the two gentlemen we were playing with cart died on the 15th hole. We called three times, spoke to a live person who said they would send help, but never did send anyone out to help. We were able to tow them in, slowing us down even more.

Very difficult the 1st time through. Have no idea where you are going. The condition of the course is exquisite but the pot bunkers off every tee are difficult without some type of map. I am 8 handicap and struggled with the layout. At least a picture of the holes on the card would help. Pace of play is slow as NOBODY knows where they're going!!! !

The New Course has become a first play when we visit Orlando having not played during the winter. Very generous fairways and large greens. Lots of room for error on a beautiful course. Plenty of pot bunkers to catch even good drives and canals to swallow errant approach shots. Requires good course management. Beautiful scenic views. My only complaint at this course is they have run out of carts every time I play and the frantic pace in the cart turnaround area wondering if you'll get a cart before your round starts is unsettling and not reflective of the quality of the rest of the operation. Waited on Foursome in front of us every hole until we skipped in front of them then wide open from there.

The course is in great condition, having dual greens is quite confusing and at times people hitting to the green while are putting, it was also hard to figure out the hole location as there are go GPS guidance on the carts, that should be standard at this price point.

The whole “1 and 18 are replicas of St. Andrews” is marketing at its finest. If you can’t hit a fairway here you need to find another sport. The entire course is a fairway. The links style setup seems out of place. I would liked to have seen the other courses here. I would recommend those over the New Course. Bunkers here are mean serious business. Not worth $120

Never played the course in Scotland so can’t compare. Some great features in particular the holes that have the water features in front of the greens. Thought the greens were slow today, perhaps due to the heavy downpour yesterday. Staff were super, very helpful and friendly.

We will return to try and better our score today

Haven’t played a course like this before. I believe it is somewhat a replica of St. Andrews at times. Enormous fairways that at times leave little idea where you might be best to aim for. Most greeens are double greens, white and yellow flags denoting front and back nine. There is not any help on scorecard or on tee boxes as to where to aim for, how far out the multiple pot bunkers lay etc. Having said the aforementioned, I did enjoy the experience as it was completely different than any course I have played. Many of the greens are very interesting with little margin for error. Course conditions were fantastic, greens in particular quick. There are countless, punishing bunkers that you must avoid to score. Also be aware of a wandering water hazard on theee or four holes in front of greens. Staff was top notch along with practice facility. Worth playing once.
