Image result for Grand Cypress Golf Club

The first thing that comes to most people’s mind when the City of Orlando is mentioned is probably the Walt Disney World Resort. But, not only does the City of Magic offer some of the world’s most magnificent theme parks, it also provides many of the best golf courses found anywhere in North America. One of the things that sets Orlando apart from other golfing destinations around the world is the weather. The prime time to book a golf vacation to Orlando is during the mild season that typically runs from the months of October through April. Visitors tend to encounter less rainfall during this timeframe, while still enjoying ideal temperatures for golf. If you are not sure where to golf in the state of Florida, then you are encouraged to contact the golf vacation specialists at Golf Zoo for specific recommendations and information regarding hot deals. For instance, the Grand Cypress Golf Club has quickly become one of the most popular golfing destinations in all of Orlando.
Visitors of the Cypress Golf Club are privy to an unforgettable golf setting featuring 45 holes of Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed golf. Golfers can opt for a couple of different settings there including the nine hole North, South and East Courses; or the New Course. The North-South courses feature everything from fairways with sharp ledges to tall shaggy mounds. Many of the holes on these courses demand accuracy versus physical strength. Then, for golfers seeking steeper bunkers and slopes, the New Course is considered a Scottish links masterpiece complete with double greens, stone bridges walls and pot bunkers as deep as 12 feet. This course is suggested for those golfers that desire generous landing areas because there aren't too many trees planted along its landscape.
