Whatever the reason, when you visit Orlando, you have to bring the sticks. With so many great choices and almost always wonderful weather, it's a fantastic setting for golf. However, some courses and some resorts are better than others. Combining the two is Reunion Resort, which boasts 54 holes of championship golf in three courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson.
The Nicklaus course stays loyal to the flatter terrain found in Orlando. It's more of a resort-style course that offers several risk-reward opportunities during the round. The par-5 third hole will remind you somewhat of the finisher on the Champion Course at PGA National, home to the Honda Classic, another Nicklaus design.
The Palmer course offering a completely different topographical challenge for the player. There are lots of bumps and hills on the 6,900-yard, par-72 course often framed by bunkers falling off on the sides of the fairways. Despite the lack of a flat lie most places, the fairways are plenty wide.
The Watson course is the only one the five-time Open champion has done in Florida. It's a 7,100-yard test from the tips, but its challenge is inside of 100 yards, asking players to hit accurate wedge shots to large green complexes.
In addition to the great golf, Boxgroove members can access the resort's premiere amenities, including six lighted Hydro-Grid tennis courts, a boutique spa, nine pools, five-acre water park with lazy river and children’s interactive playground, state-of-the-art fitness center, fine dining restaurants and more.
