Grand Cypress Golf Club- New Course

1 N Jacaranda St Orlando, FL 32836-6699, United States
This resort includes 45 holes of golf, all designed by Jack Nicklaus. The first 27 holes that opened here were the North and South nines in 1984, followed by the East 9 in 1986. The 18-hole "New Course" debuted in 1988 over a former meadow and is largely devoid of water and trees. Nicklaus intended this course to have a Scottish appearance, so stone bridges, mounds of gorse, and pot bunkers are prominent. With the exception of MiniVerde Bermuda greens on the South 9, the course uses common Bermuda tee-to-green. Also here is a 21-acre golf academy, with a range, short-game practice facility, practice holes, up-to-date simulator equipment, and PGA of America teaching professionals.
