Nice course but they need to pay attention to pace of play

This course was nicer than I thought it was going to be.Greens really good and a solid tough layout.However for a nice golf resort hard to believe they don’t care about pace of play.-5 hr rounds are the thing of the past.If they don’t realize that they will lose the serious golfer -No ranger on course is inexcusable if you care about pace.

Staff

Staff was rude, short and unfriendly, for 100$, not only were they not polite, no one explained the course, where bathrooms were, drive on fairway, not on fairway, there were no range balls cuz they ran out, I practiced sand shots cuz that’s all I could do, I got my own cart and picked up my own bag from the bag drop, and not that I’m upity and this is beneath me, and not that 100$ is extreme, I’ve just paid for less and got more, and I felt I paid more and got less........the reviews were over 4 stars and I’d give the course 3 and a half, but staff would get not even a star, maybe I’d give them a glitter, when I was leaving there was a nice staff member but he said he started at 1pm and wasn’t there when I teed off

Reunion Watson

Overall poor golf course. No where near a links style course. Hodgepodge of holes stitched together with no continuity. Massive waste areas that made no sense in the design whatsoever. By far one of the worst courses in Orlando.

Toms course

My 4th time around the Watson course and i about have the driving lines and club selections down. Some of the driving landing areas look pretty imtimidating from tees but you actually get more area to land it in then it apprears. Greens are not as sloped as the other courses here and a bit easier to navigate for the average player. Overall i really like this course, its fairly playable for all level of golfers, bit still challenging and interesting to play....
