Tom Watson's Independence Course
Reunion’s Independence Golf Course
Reunion’s Independence was designed and built by Tom Watson – it was his first “signature design” in Florida. The 18-hole, par 72 course plays 7,257 yards off the Champion tees. It can be an extremely tough course, but with five sets of tees you have the option to shorten the layout considerably and thus give yourself the option to score well. Having said that, the Independence requires a solid short game and a real flair for club selection, from putter to lob wedge to three-wood.The Independence course at Ginn Reunion was the first of the resort’s courses to open. It was also Tom Watson's first Signature design in Florida. The Independence Course is a windswept, link-style layout of rolling grassy dunes and fairways bounded with more than a dozen 15 varieties of native grasses, azaleas, hibiscus, camellias, and other foliage. Watson says that "Golf attracts more players than any other outdoor sport. No doubt there are almost as many reasons for this as there are players, but one reason is certainly shared by all. It's the simple pleasure of being on a beautiful course." With approximately 120 bunkers of all different sizes and designs, and plenty of waste areas, there is no need for water hazards on this undulating layout. With five sets of tees, the course can play as difficult as you like with a slope of 140 from the back tees. The large greens complexes often have multiple tiers with swales that can make both putting and chipping tricky, giving reward to sharp short games.
Arnie Palmer's Legacy Course
Reunion's Legacy Course
Legacy is a pristine resort course, very playable with a slope rating of 137 from the back tees. There is plenty of challenge, especially from the tips. Most of the greens have false fronts, providing visual deception, and a number of holes can put a hurt on you. The 15th, a 527-yard dogleg with an intimidating carry over a lake off the tee, is a classic risk/reward hole: You can be the man you think you are or the man you want to be. Big hitters will go over the bunker at the far end of the lake, at 300 yards-plus, leavinga short iron and chance for eagle. Regular hitters will hit over water and trees in the middle, which also makes it reachable in two, or you can take the safe route further left. It's pretty much everything you'd want in a resort course. The layout is imaginative, and there is a good practice facility with targeted greens at the driving range, all the range balls lined up neatly, and your personal towel waiting for you.
Jack Nicklaus' Tradition Course
Reunion's Tradition Course
Reunion’s Tradition was designed and built by Jack Nicklaus and his son Jackie. In typical Jack Nicklaus fashion, the Tradition Course calls for more exacting tee shots and approaches than the other two golf courses at Ginn Reunion Resort. It is a “signature design,” 18-hole, par 72 course that plays 7,300 yards from the championship tees. The Tradition course is a Parkland-style layout with small, quick greens and tight, narrow fairways and numerous water hazards that come into play on seven holes. There are also more than 100 bunkers on the course, carefully placed to catch poor club selections both off the tee and on the approach.The Tradition course is as tough as it gets, but with five sets of tees it’s playable, and very enjoyable, for golfers of all levels of skill. A walk in the park? Hardly, but Tradition is one of Florida’s best.
