Orlando's Grand Cypress Resort tops Power Rankings for the week of Aug. 25

A Florida golf course is back on top once again in GolfAdvisor's Power Rankings, this time it's the 27-hole North-South-East Course at Grand Cypress Resort in Orlando (the resort is also home to the British Isles-inspired New Course).

According to reviewers, Grand Cypress is not only offering top-rated summer conditions, but it appears they are offering a green fee competitive enough to call it the country's best value last week, too.

Here are the top-rated U.S. courses of the week as submitted by GolfAdvisor users for the past week in overall, value and conditions categories:

(Editor's Note: Courses needed a minimum of five ratings for the week to qualify, ties are broken by cumulative scores in sub-categories.)
