The East/North Course at Grand Cypress is very difficult from the Gold tees. Only the very brave, or the foolhardy, should even consider teeing it up from there. All of the Grand Cypress courses are in immaculate condition. On this combination of nines, there is one long par-5. The others are short. The par-4s play too long from the Gold tees. From the Blue tees, most holes are 400 yards or less. The small greens are quick and well kept. There is also a digital caddy system available for obtaining exact yardages. This is a semi-private golf course. Soft spikes only. The New Course, like all those at Grand Cypress, is a Jack Nicklaus design. It also includes South-East Course.

A classically designed course, New Course at Grand Cypress Golf Club offers more challenges in terms of slopes and mounds. The course is a bit tough even to the most experienced and skilled golfer. To pose a new dimension to the challenge is the not so prominent water body which might suddenly come into the picture. The landscape even with very less trees, still is spectacular. The course is designed by Jack Nicklaus and inspired by the much acclaimed St. Andrews course.
