Reunion Resort & Golf Club completed an extensive renovation project encompassing all three of its courses. Started in May 2019, the $800,000 enhancement includes complete upgrades to bunkers and landscaping across all greens.

“Our popular courses haven’t seen this scale of renovation since the early days of LPGA tournaments at our complex,” said Kevin Baker, property general manager.

The project is being overseen by Florida-based ONEGOLF, Inc. The enhancements at Reunion include a robust landscaping design and upgrades to drainage lines and bunkers to prevent washouts and damage to the fairways. The Nicklaus course portion of the project is unique due to the nature of the subsoil on which the course was built. New bunker liners will create a barrier between the course’s clay and sand mixture and bunker sand to help prevent contamination. The Reunion team has also been working with the Nicklaus design team to reduce the size of the bunkers to improve playability and allow for more efficient maintenance.

“Response from our members and guests so far has been overwhelmingly positive,” Baker said. “They notice the improvement to the look and play of the courses and are pleased with the end result.”

Recognized by Golf Digest as one of only six of the “Best Golf Resorts in Florida” in 2018, Reunion’s three courses offer something unique during each round. Known for its Parkland-style smooth and flowing layout, the Jack Nicklaus course is as deceptive as it is beautiful, with long horizon lines and elevated tee boxes and greens. Highlighted by fast, firm and wide-rolling fairways, the 7,154-yard, par-72 Tom Watson course is as much about strategy as it is about length. And, at the 6,916-yard, par-72 Arnold Palmer course, players experience rollercoaster-like terrain where dramatic elevation changes – some up to 50 feet in places – create a unique variety of risk/reward shots.
