Grand Cypress GC (16-18 & 13-15)
May 22-23, 2004
The Grand Cypress Golf Club offers golfers the largest selection of truly challenging golf in Orlando, all from one clubhouse! Boasting 45 holes of Jack Nicklaus signature designed golf with four unique course combinations, the Grand Cypress Golf Club truly is the premier and most diverse Orlando Golf Resort.
The award winning North, South and East nine-hole courses offer a variety of physical and mental stimuli, providing the ultimate test of accuracy. The 18-hole New Course allows golfers to go back in time to the olden days of golf. Reminiscent of the Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland, Jack Nicklaus has brought the Scottish Links to Central Florida, complete with 12-foot pot bunkers, stone walls, and more. FJT will play the New Course.
