Cypress Lakes Country Club is the centerpiece of the Ormond community, a neighborhood of more than 500 homes. Blending seamlessly into the surrounding cypress trees, the golf course is both challenging and scenic. You'll have to navigate your way around 17 different ponds that come into play throughout the course. With several forced carries over wetlands, it will feel like there is water at every turn. There are also 40 strategically placed bunkers bordering the greens and fairways. It's a layout that will test your accuracy and ability to strategize. Multiple sets of tees keep scratch golfers happy while beginners can also approach the course with confidence. In addition to the golf course, Cypress Lakes has a practice facility featuring a 400-yard driving range with multiple targets and putting and chipping greens.
Previously known as Ormond Country Club.

Forgot it was Ormand

I didn’t like it when I played it as Ormand. Didn’t realize it was the same course under different name. Driving range closed. The only water on the course was the ponds and the rain water. No drinking water. No cart person. Restaurant didn’t open until later in day. They were redoing sand traps and wouldn’t get out of way. All in all not a good experience. Will not come back.

Enjoyable round

Despite the heat, it was an enjoyable round at CL. Greens were pretty good, fairways nice, and rough fair. Saw plenty of workers tending to the course; bunkers need some work.

Big Improvements

Course has made tremendous strides over the past couple months. Best greens I’ve played locally this year. Can definitely see the efforts of the staff with improved bunkers, greens, and clean fairways.

Perfect weather
Used cart

I knew it would be slow on a holiday so I prepared myself for slow play but this was absurd. I teed off behind a twosome that apparently knew nothing about the game of golf. I literately watched the two play several balls off each tee the worst of which came on hole 6 where I witnessed the two put eight balls in the water before leaving the tee. It was pretty much like that the majority of the round until hole 13 at which time they turned around and headed for the club house I can only assume that they ran out of balls.

First Time Playing

April 28 first time at course

Fairly nice course. Fairways were extremely bumpy which affected rollout of drives. The greens were sanded so roll was slow but not too bad

Would play again after greens grew back out

Greens thicker than fairways

The groundskeeper must be in strike. If this was a $25 round, I still wouldn't think it's acceptable. The staff was incredible from the Cart Barn Manager, to the ProShop, to the bartenders. Just pass a blade over the greens and kill the Poa Annua and I'd return regularly just for the hospitality

Greens

The greens were in horrible shape. Definitely not worth the price they’re getting per round, not even a value round.

A little disappointed

I play Cypress Lakes pretty often. Disappointed in the condition of the greens, lots of bad grass and bumpy. Bunkers were hard with little sand. They are doing a lot of work removing trees and moving dirt in some areas. I like the layout, lots of water in play. Still a fun round with fast pace of play.
