The Old becomes The New at Grand Cypress Golf Club. Set in the midst of an open meadow, the Links Course (formerly New Course) is Jack Nicklaus’ tribute and homage to the famed Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland. The Links Course adds another dimension of play to the Orlando golf course scene with steeper and more challenging bunkers and slopes. 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 Links Course, but when it does, it will challenge you to make precise shots. And while very few trees are located within the interior of the course, creating generous landing areas, look out for the more than 150 pot bunkers scattered throughout the lovely green fairways. Lavished with accolades like Gold Medal Resort (Golf Magazine), Platinum Award Winning Pro-Shop (PGA Merchandise Association), and Top 50 Resort Courses (Golf World), Grand Cypress is the full package and certain to be a highlight for any Orlando golfing experience.
