Cypress Bend Resort Gets a Major Renovation
Reimagined Experiences are Coming to Cypress Bend Resort, a now Wyndham Property
By Brian Weis
Cypress Bend Resort's stunning 18-hole championship golf course, known as the crown jewel of the Audubon Golf Trail, is getting even better as part of a multi-million full reconstruction project.
Tucked away on the Texas-Louisiana border in the charming town of Many, Louisiana, Cypress Bend Resort is a true outdoorsman's paradise. The property offers fishing, 600 acres of nature trails and - its number one attraction - a championship golf course. The resort hotel recently became a Wyndham property and a major multi-million renovation is currently underway.
The 18-hole course has been popular with professional-level golfers for years, with its sweeping views of the Toledo Bend Lake and rolling terrain. As part of the renovations, the course is being redesigned by award-winning golf architect Jeff Blume who is known for his work improving playability throughout the region. Under his careful direction, the redesign will now open the course up to players of all levels - from budding amateurs to seasoned pros.
"We want to offer our guests the best experience possible," said Eric Kasper, Cypress Bend Resort's resident golf pro and former PGA professional. The full reconstruction will breathe new life into the course, building upon its natural beauty while increasing overall playability. "It's a total beauty," said Kasper. "This rebuilding will make it one of the top golf courses in the Southern states, certainly a premier destination for all golfers."
For those who may prefer more time off the green, the renovation will also include updates to the resort's Conference Center - with an indoor amphitheater and ballroom that can accommodate up to 250 guests - indoor and outdoor swimming pools, winding on-site nature trails and central common areas.
The new and improved resort, featuring a wide range of reimagined experiences, is expected to debut in spring 2023. While the golf course is currently closed for the extensive renovations, the hotel and resort is welcoming guests daily for delicious Southern cuisine and relaxing opportunities throughout. The putting green and driving range are open for swing practice, and all other resort amenities including the restaurant, bar, fishing excursions, nature trails, bird watching, swimming and event spaces are all open.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf.
