New clubhouse at the signature design Nicklaus Course
The AAA Four Diamond rated Reunion Resort encompasses 2,300 acres of lush landscape and nature preserves, providing a peaceful respite in the midst of the magic and bustle of Orlando’s nearby attractions. Leaving crowds and long lines far behind, the resort features 360 resort style accommodations ranging from luxury multi-room villas and private vacation homes. The resort is a top golf destination, as it is the only location in the world featuring three signature championship golf courses designed by golf’s greatest legends: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson.
The Nicklaus Course is smooth and flowing with long horizon lines and designed to tempt golfers into hitting risky shots resulting in big payoffs with its many lakes and elevated tee boxes. The Nicklaus Course is accompanied by a newly built Clubhouse, opened in November of 2018. Located on over three acres, the new 12,000 square-foot clubhouse features panoramic views of the course and includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, men’s and women’s locker rooms and showers, a golf lifestyle retail space, and an upscale sports bar called “Traditions,” complete with an open kitchen and outdoor terrace with views of the 18th green. A tribute to Jack Nicklaus’ masterful layout, the new clubhouse includes furnishings, artwork and memorabilia related to Nicklaus’ decorated career.
The Palmer Course is a par 72 course with six tee locations on each hole, offering with a variety of natural preserve areas, generously wide fairways, hilly terrains with elevations, which is rare on Florida courses, and strategically placed bunkers across all 18 holes. The Watson Course highlights fast and firm fairways surrounded by 15 varieties of native grasses, azaleas, hibiscus and other indigenous foliage to Central Florida.
