Introducing the Redesigned Cypress Course
The Cypress Course in Stonegate Golf Club at Solivita has been skillfully redesigned by Clifton, Ezell & Clifton, (CEC) and fabricated into a more challenging layout than its predecessor. Fairways are still gently rolling and flanked by undisturbed century-old cypress trees: all the greens have been expanded in size to feature undulations acceptable for much faster roll – some greens have now been bulk-headed for a truly spectacular visual effect.
Cart paths now run the length of the course, tee to green, and water comes into play on 13 holes. #16 is a real challenging par 3 over water to a large, bulkheaded green – tough!
Don’t expect to recognize many of the new holes as this picturesque redesign will have you questioning your ability to remember what the course used to be!
