The nine hole North, South and East Courses offer a variety of mental and physical stimuli that, unlike other Orlando golf courses, test accuracy rather than strength and distance. The North-South combination, marked by sharply ledged fairways, tall shaggy mounds and plateau greens perched above water or sand, is a demanding, target-style test. The sportier, more wooded East Nine is more generous, with less bunkering allowing for more run-up shots. Test your skill on our beautiful East 5 island hole, which if you come up short, you may find yourself in the water. Although the North, South and East Nines have their own distinct qualities, they complement each other beautifully to make three different 18 hole combinations. The North, South and East Nines offer a variety of tee boxes making the courses enjoyable for top level golfers and beginners.

An Unforgettable Golf Setting

Within these 27 holes, the Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed North, South and East Courses provide three distinctly unique 18-hole masterpieces. For the full round of 18, courses can be combined as the North-South, South-East or East-North Course. Each combination provides a distinctive playing experience, which will challenge even the best of golfers.

In 2007 and 2008, the original North and South Courses were renovated and redesigned. Jack Nicklaus came back to Grand Cypress to change play on several of the holes. The end result is a longer course featuring course conditions that are unique amongst Orlando golf courses.

A Tribute to the Old Course

New Course

The New Course adds another dimension of play to the Orlando golf course scene with steeper and more challenging bunkers and slopes. Set in the midst of an open meadow, the New Course is Jack Nicklaus’ tribute and homage to the famed Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland. This Scottish links masterpiece is complete with double greens, stone bridges and walls, gorse mounds, burns and pot bunkers as deep as 12 feet—all in the spirit of the true Scottish original. Very little water comes into play on the New Course, but when it does it will challenge you. Very few trees are located within the interior of the course, creating generous landing areas. However, an errant tee shot could find its way into one of our 150 pot bunkers.
