Unique among all golf destinations in the world, Reunion Resort alone can boast three Signature golf courses designed by the legendary triumvirate of players turned- designers: Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tom Watson. With this exclusive claim to fame, Reunion Resort stands apart as the creme de la creme of golfing communities.
The Arnold Palmer Legacy Course, a Signature Design, poses a huge challenge with its dramatic elevation changes, a variety of natural preserve areas, generously wide fairways, and strategically placed bunkers, throughout its hilly terrain. Golf Digest named the Legacy Course one of "America's Top 40 New Courses", while Golfweek rated it among their "Top 100 Resort Courses". Highlighted by fast fairways, large greens, and tricky bunker placements, the Tom Watson Independence Course, a Signature Design, demands a well thought out approach from every player regardless of skill level. At 7,257 yards, the par 72 Independence course is as much about strategy as it is about length. GOLF Magazine designated it among "The Best Courses Near You (Florida)" and Golfweek recognized Independence as one of the "Best Courses You Can Play", high praise from both publications.
The Jack Nicklaus Tradition course, a Signature Design, presents a smooth and flowing layout with elevated tee boxes and greens. Deceptively beautiful, it can also be treacherous when least expected by tempting golfers to take risky shots for potentially big payoffs. Also recognized by Golfweek, the Tradition Course has been ranked among "The Best Courses You Can Play" and the "Top 100 Resort Courses". Reunion Resort's additional exclusive offering for golfers is the renowned ANNIKA AcademyTM, Annika Sorenstam's one and only golf and fitness academy. This boutique school with its unique concept and state-of-the art facility caters to small groups by providing individualized golf instruction and customized fitness programs. Fifty-four holes of championship golf can be found at the heart of the 2,300-acre Reunion Resort.
