Part of a 45-hole facility, the Grand Cypress Resort - South Course in Orlando, Florida, is a nine-hole course that was part of the original design in 1984. Designed by Jack Nicklaus, the South Course plays similar to the North Course with plateau greens, ledged fairways and tall shaggy mounds scattered around the course. The South Course, along with the other 36 holes, boasts immaculate course conditions with 419 Bermuda grass in the fairways and tee boxes. After a renovation in 2007 and 2008, many of the holes on the South Course were changed, resulting in a longer course. Grand Cypress Resort is prestigious among golf resorts in the country, making it a must play in Florida.
