“I feel like I’m in North Carolina.” We’ve heard a player now and again coming off Eighteen comment that rounds here are so much more than your typical Florida golf experience. So much better. Chalk it up to the 604-acre cypress preserve we’re nestled in to. And the built-in undulation. Features you don’t typically find on a Florida golf course. 

Welcome to the Cypress Creek difference. Make that differences, plural!

Also, we’re unique when you think of Florida golf, in that we don’t have pool screens on every hole. Homes come into play on only four or five holes . Once you’re off and into the heart of the course, you’ll realize the immersion into the “preserve effect” that golfers here cherish. As the majority of the course weaves through a wildlife preserve, you’ll fall for our natural, down-to-the-core golf.

A general overview of the course from General Manager Kevin Dutkowsky

“We have small, undulating greens that require very accurate approach shots,” Kevin reports. And even once you’re on the green, there’s no guarantee!

Conditions are pretty consistent (consistently great!) throughout the year.

“We try to keep the course firm and fast. But with Florida, summer always brings rain that slows down play at most courses.” 

As this is an extremely challenging course, Kevin says, “ … more often than not, we have people begin a round on the back tees and move forward.” So feel free. With water on 14 holes , “we see a lot of golfers re-stock on balls at the turn!’

“Our par-5 14th hole has been noted for being “One of the Best Driving Holes in Tampa Bay. Thirteen is our Signature Hole, a 160-yard, par-3 over water with a postage stamp green.”

There’s really no easy way to get into your round; the second hole is probably the most difficult, with water all the way down the right side. It’s 432 yards uphill and usually plays into a wind, with a demanding green.

16, 17 and 18 are a tough finish

“If you can finish strong on these holes, than you can go home feeling pretty good about yourself!”

  Rating Slope
Championship 73 134
Men's White 69.2 127

We have six sets of tees total.

Grass

We feature Bermuda grass throughout the entire course. During the winter we overseed the greens with MiniVerde Bermuda and the tees with rye. We aerate three times over the summer – typically once more than other area, daily-fee courses. We do that to offer the best playing conditions in winter. Also, we don’t shut down to aerate – “aerafication only effects ten percent of the playing surface.”
