Grand Cypress Golf Resort featured on cover of current Play Florida Golf

03/20/2012



ORLANDO, Fla. – March 20, 2012 – The par 4 10th hole of Grand Cypress Golf Resort’s New Course is featured on the cover of the current issue of Play Florida Golf, the state of Florida’s official golf directory and vacation guide.

 

Orlando’s premier golf resort and hotel, Villas of Grand Cypress, is home to 45 holes of Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed golf, including the New Course, which debuted in 1988 and is Nicklaus’ personal tribute to the Old Course at St. Andrews. Complete with its own double greens, gorse mounds, stone bridges and walls, the New Course also features pot bunkers as deep as 12 feet. PGA Tour pros often will venture to Grand Cypress to play the course in preparation for the British Open.

 

The state of Florida’s new marketing program, Play Florida, is targeted to golf enthusiasts in both the U.S. and Canada, according to Gary Jones, CEO/President of Destination Media, which publishes Play Florida Golf. The directory includes a comprehensive list of Florida golf courses by region, golf editorial and golf vacation information, and is illustrated with images by noted golf course photographer Nile Young. The current issue will be on display until Aug. 1, Jones said.

 

Located in the Lake Buena Vista area of Orlando, Villas of Grand Cypress is just minutes from Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando. The resort can be conveniently accessed by driving, via Interstate 4, or by flying into Orlando International Airport (MCO).

Golf Courses of Study: Great Resorts That Will Teach You a Lesson

The curriculum at the Grand Cypress Academy of Golf, in Orlando, FL is nearly as wide-ranging as the rides at nearby theme parks.  This GOLF Magazine Top 25 school spreads across 21 acres of grassy golf laboratories.  The most intensive course of study is in the Fred Griffin Players School, a three-day program with only six students and two instructors including GOLF Magazine Top 100 instructor Fred Griffin himself.  The school employs use of a ModelGolf swing analysis overlay, club recommendations based on the latest swing analysis and launch monitor data, two nine-hole playing lessons, and a one-year membership in the Academy’s on-line Personal Improvement Program.  Grand Cypress also offers a variety of other schools ranging from the Mental Impact program— Dr. Ryan Caserta’s curriculum that teaches the mental game through sport-specific eye training— to women’s’ and junior programs. ...
