The Cypress Course of the Emerald Greens Golf Resort features just nine of the fascination 27 holes of the resort, but it in itself is enough to satisfy a golf hungry golfer. Whether played as a short course, or paired with its adjacent nine-hole course, this nine has some of the best combination of scenery, challenging layout, and everything good about Tampa, Florida’s golfing scene. A golf vacation at the Emerald will never be complete without playing this course.
Measuring 3,555 yards, the Cypress Course of the Emerald Greens features a lot of water on its holes – as are the other two courses in the facility. As its name implies, the course is surrounded by a dense growth of large cypress trees that make it more scenic. The greens on the Cypress nine are large and undulating, the bunkers vary between small pot bunkers and the large intimidating ones. Golf trips here are defined by the variety of games that could be played depending on the nines combination. The Cypress-Meadows is a favorite 18-hole combination for a game at the Emerald for the variety it offers, having larger greens on the Cypress, and relatively smaller greens from the Meadows.
The Cypress Course of the Emerald Golf Resort, along with the other two nines – The Meadows and The Pines, make up this favorite Tampa golf vacation destination. The facility also features double sided practice range, and putting and chipping greens. The courses were originally designed by Ed Ault in 1971, and was redesigned by Dan Maples in 2004.
