The Palmer course at Reunion is not your typical Florida golf course. Very hilly. This course has a great track and is well maintained. However, I like the Nicklaus and Watson courses better. The Palmer course is the shorter of the three, only running at 6,916 from the tips. Hole 7 is Reunions signature hole. It is a risk reward shot. If you are a long ball hitter, than going for the green is manageable on the short 290 yd par 4. I am a member at Reunion and have never had bad service. The guys in the pro shop are great and the starters are too. The courses are always in great shape. If you play at Reunion, I'm sure you will be back.

This is a course in which you have to stay at to play. Palmer track is fun and you can have holes where you don't need the driver. #7 is a picturesque signature hole on this course.

Some greens needed a little love but overall course was in great shape.

I was playing in a 4-ball tournament and the course was backed up because of it. I'm sure Pace of Play is in good shape.

My team also won, so I will be back to the Reunion Resort. Hopefully, it will be to play another track.

To start, Reunion is a fabulous resort - first class all the way. Its really a pretty place. That said, I believe this is the lesser of the 3 courses. Its short and has some pretty crazy undulations in the fairways. While it is short, its not particularly easy - fair amount of sand and water. The day we played, it poured rain all morning and the course drained quite well throughout the day. Overall, it a good facility, an OK course, but quite spendy (I paid $175).

The Palmer course at Reunion Resort is classic resort golf. The course is fairly wide-open, fairly forgiving with not a lot of out of bounds which makes it very playable for the average golfer. You will run into a lot of bunkers and hundreds if not thousands of humps in the fairways and on the greens. My best recommendation for you, especially off of the tee, is to watch your ball until it stops rolling, it could end up anywhere off of the mounds. You can easily hit a drive down the right side of the fairway and it could end up in the left rough due to these humps and mounds everywhere. If you want an enjoyable round of golf wherr you're not going to slam your club in the ground or walk off angry this is the course for you

Extremely impressed with the Reunion course (Palmer). A Group of us played and loved the huge elevation changes that you don't see much in Florida.<br/> Excellent greens, excellent layout. Challenging but fair.<br/> Will definitely come back to Reunion to play all 3 courses there!

I'd rather play Watson or Nicklaus' course than Arnie's. While I like many of the holes on the course and enjoy playing a course not completely surrounded by houses... this course left me wanting more.

I don't want to completely slam the course - great greens and well maintained fairways, bunkers and teeing grounds.

The 18th hole closing hole is a disservice to golf architecture. The fairway runs out after 250 yards.... leaving me a downhill approach to an uphill green. The 11th and 12th holes are a little bland. I enjoyed my time on the course but like the rest of Reunion a lot better.
