Grand Cypress Resort's North, South, East and New golf courses
Grand Cypress Resort features three nine-hole layouts and an 18-hole golf course that was modeled after the famed Old Course at St. Andrews. All of the holes were designed by Jack Nicklaus.
The North, South and East nines offer a variety of holes with one constant: accuracy is more important than distance. The original North-South combination is characterized by ledged fairways, tall grassy mounds, and plateau greens perched above water or sand. The wooded East nine is more generous, with less bunkering, particularly in front of the greens, allowing for more run-up shots.
The New Course at Grand Cypress, which is Jack Nicklaus' tribute to the Old Course at St. Andrews, is a unique course in Orlando because of its double greens, stone bridges and walls, gorse mounds, burns, and pot bunkers as deep as 12 feet. Nos. 1, 17 and 18 are replicas of the same holes at St. Andrews.
