Slideshow of Golf Courses at Reunion Resort, Orlando FL




The Ginn Reunion Resort is nestled among more than 2000 acres of gentle rolling hills in Central Florida. The Resort is famous for its grand golf courses designed by such legends as Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus. These great courses are complimented by a world-class organization where good service and luxury accommodations are a watch word.


Tom Watson's Independence Course

Ginn 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."


Arnie Palmer's Legacy Course

Ginn Reunion Palmer Legacy Course is all innovation. Arnie’s “signature,” layout is set within a hilly section of Central Florida. The "roller coaster-like" terrain is a major component of Palmer’s design. The master has used the natural elevation changes to place tee boxes and greens in an environment of great natural beauty. Typical of Arnie’s temperament, the Legacy course is liberally scattered with risk/reward" plays that will temp even the high handicapper to “go for broke.” For instance, time after time you will be confronted with views off the tee that offer the chance to “go for it.” If you make the sot, you will have a legitimate opportunity to make birdie, or even eagle. If you fail, however…. Ginn Reunion Palmer Legacy course is a classic in the true sense of the word.


Jack Nicklaus' Tradition Course

Ginn Reunion’s Tradition was designed and built by Jack Nicklaus – “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. 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 destined to become one of Florida’s best.
