Nicklaus Golf Course

  3 Reviews

I've had the opportunity to play here several times and each time was better than the time before. The Jack Nicklaus design is typical it's always safe to play the fairway and a little punishing if you get off track not only from the approach stand point but the hazards are also located where you don't want to be.  The housing along the fairways keeps you from getting to crazy with the driver so unless you're hitting the ball exceptionally well the day you play I recommend you don't swing away on certain holes and save those shots for when the opportunity presents itself.

The courses here are alway immaculate and well manicured. The resort is managed well and all the members of their staff are exceptional. The amenities are first class and this place provides you a great opportunity to shoot a good score no matter what your skill level. I would highly recommend playing this course or the other two on the property as well.

The Nicklaus Course is located about a mile from the main clubhouse.  You drive over I-4 to the north side of the property.  They have a very large white tent for check in and driving range close by that is constantly restocked with balls in pyramid stacking.  

The course is typical Nicklaus with numerous bunkers around all greens and in locations where a misplaced t-shot would go.  Middle of fairway is safe.  Course has terrain changes not typical for Florida.   It is challenging but very playable for all skills.  

The course was in very good condition, service was good.  They have gas carts to navigate the FL "hills".   GPS system on carts.  

Very enjoyable and I hope to return soon.

The 2nd golf course we played during our stay at the Reunion Resort, the Nicklaus is the longest and most challenging of the 3 golf courses.  Just like the other courses, it's well kept and was in great shape when we played in early May.  It winds through parts of the residential area and some swamp and some jungle...it's very cool, especially for desert rats like us who never see stuff like this.

There are spots on the course where you'll need to nail your drive to clear significant jungle brush....you won't find your ball there...at least when I hit into it, I didn't bother looking.  Who wants to get their hand bit off by a gator? LOL

Tons of fun to play here though.

The course is not located near the resort though...you have to drive 5 min if you have a car or you'll have to get a ride from the valet guys at the resort.  The parking lot is small.

There's also no clubhouse or facilities....it's a sprung structure large tent for housing/charging the carts.

Overall, it was a pretty fun day out golfing.
