Big Cypress Golf Club
The Big Cypress Golf & Country Club located within the 55+ community of Cypress Lakes features two extraordinary courses that offer great play for every golfing skill level:
- The 3,494-yard, 18-hole par 60 North Executive course designed by noted course architect Chip Powell.
- The impressive 6,650-yard, 18-hole South Championship course, designed by Ron Garl, and recognized by Golf Digest, Florida Golfer and Senior Golfer magazines for its par-72 championship caliber layout. If you are a true golfer, you need to play this course!
The Big Cypress courses were developed using Bermuda turf grasses, which require constant sunlight and warmth to thrive. At Cypress Lakes, the community is beautifully lined with large, towering Cypress Trees. Although pleasant on the eyes, the trees provide too much shade for the Bermuda turf. And, in the cooler winter months, low nighttime temperatures force the turf grasses into a dormant stage. For these two reasons, we decided on a simple solution: change out the grasses.
As of July, 2014, the Big Cypress South Course greens have featured Diamond Zoysia turf grass, and it has received nothing but rave reviews by our resident and guest golfers.
Developed in the Carolinas for shade-, drought- and temperature-tolerant conditions, Diamond Zoysia is the talk of the golfing industry, and the Cypress Lakes 55+ Community course was the first in Florida to offer this incredible new strand. … Our resident golfers can be proud to play on the best greens in Central Florida!
