Reunion Resort and Golf Club offers a golfing experience unlike any other in the world. Receiving accolades and awards from several golf publications, Reunion is the only place you will find three Signature Design courses by golf ’s greatest legends: Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, and Arnold Palmer.
If you find yourself at Reunion, and you only have time for one course, we recommend the Palmer course. It’s the least challenging of the three, but it boasts the most spectacular views of the resort. You will play through bunkers, lush greenery, and some of our luxury rental homes.
The Palmer 7 hole is the most iconic of all 36 holes at Reunion. You might recognize Palmer 7 by its vantage point of the long winding bridge over a sparkling pond with the resort’s Grande Tower standing elegantly in the distance. The Palmer course offers 6,916 yards of rolling terrain with elevation changes up to 50 feet.
The Watson course is adjacent to the Palmer. Both start just behind the Clubhouse restaurant and Pro Shop. The Clubhouse serves a traditional American breakfast and lunch and is a great spot for a cup of coffee before heading out to the driving range or your morning tee time. Once on the course, you will encounter wide-open greens, rolling fairways, and strategically placed bunkers.
Club selection is crucial for this course. The most challenging of Reunion’s three courses is the Nicklaus course. Located on the other side of the resort property and winding through parts of the nature reserve, the Nicklaus course can be a bit quieter and more scenic than Watson or Palmer. This course provides long fairways and Challenging water challenging water hazards. At the end of the course, you can wave to your fans as they watch from the clubhouse veranda, which features panoramic views of the 18th green. Inside the Nicklaus Clubhouse, you’ll find men’s and women’s locker rooms with showers, the Pro Shop, and a tavern-style restaurant called Traditions. Traditions is the ideal spot for your post-round meal and celebratory beverages. Reunion Resort has been consistently recognized for providing a premier golf experience in Central Florida since 2005. Director of Golf and Course Maintenance, Scott Scamehorn, has implemented a new approach to golf course maintenance and care, ensuring the courses are “tournament-ready” every day.
“We’re concentrating our efforts down the center lines, while really working hard on perfecting the consistency in playing conditions,” stated Scamehorn. Scamehorn joined Reunion’s team in the spring of 2020, and since then, he has worked with his team to transform Reunion’s courses into three of Florida’s best. “We’re managing all three courses as one,” said Scamehorn. “We’ve adjusted mowing frequency along with pest management and water conservation to improve daily course conditions.”
Open to resort guests and members, Reunion’s rolling greens stretch across the 2,300-acre resort, just minutes from Walt Disney World® and other famous Orlando attractions.
