Two of the Best Public Golf Courses in Lakeland, FL, Can be Found at Cypress Lakes

Best Public Golf Courses Lakeland FLCypress Lakes is a 55+ community in Lakeland, Florida, that is home to two of the best public golf courses in the city. Though the residents of Cypress Lakes and members of the Big Cypress Golf Club do receive first priority on tee time scheduling, both of our two spectacular courses are, indeed, open to the public. The Big Cypress Golf Club offers 36 holes of challenging play as well as a pro shop that is stocked with all of the essentials, including:

  • Clubs
  • Shoes
  • Gloves
  • Bags
  • Balls
  • Apparel
  • And more

Golfers of all skill levels are able to have a great time teeing it up on either one of our two 18-hole courses, both located at 10000 US Highway 98 N in Lakeland, FL. The South Course is a par 72 layout with multiple sets of tees. Designed by Ron Garl, the South Course is the more challenging of our two courses yet is still suitable for golfers of varying abilities. The North Course – designed by Chip Powell – is a par 60 executive course offering a speedier round of play with 12 par 3s and 6 par 4s. Both of our courses thrive under the stewardship of golf course superintendent Gary Newcomb, who is GCSAA certified and a graduate (A.S., Golf Course Operations) of Lake City Community College. Our golf shop manager, Allen Tener, is a 20+ year employee who provides golf oversight and has a team of certified instructors who provide both individual and group instruction.
