First Time

Booked using golfnow hot deals and $40 of rewards so the round only cost $50. Tee time was 1 pm Thursday. Arrived early and got out right away. Course was in great shape. Greens are SMALL AND FAST! Have played the Watson course and is of equal track. Looking forward to playing Palmer in the future

Course and greens in great shape

Course was in great condition. Greens were aerated about 3 weeks before I played and they were fully healed.

Great Course, but Not the Best Course Conditions

I played the course two weeks ago and enjoyed the round (despite the slow play as we were following a college tournament) that I wanted to come back. Enjoyed the course even more the second time as the slow play was not as much of a problem. My only complaint is that some of the fairways are not in as good a condition as I would expect for a private course like this one. Also, there is no such thing as rough. Other than that, a very interesting course to play. Will definitely come back.

Drive it well

Fair off the tee, undulating fairways. Smaller, but fair greens. Greenside bunkers might be the best place to miss the greens.

Great Course, but Not the Best Course Conditions

I know some people don't like Nicklaus courses, but I really enjoyed the layout - the variety of holes and the elevation changes, which are not that common in central Florida.
To be fair, the pace of play issue was distorted by the fact that we were immediately following a college golf tournament, so the competitors had to be strictly adhering to the rules of golf and also putting everything out.
The greens were playing fast because of the college tournament, but my rating of the course conditions was more directed to the fact that the grass was spotty in places and there were more than one green with weeds.
The rating on the off-course amenities was based on the length of time it took to get refreshments after 9 holes and the fact that the Pro Shop was closed by the time we finished our round (only 6:30 pm).
Having said all the above, I am going back for another round in the next few days.

Expected better.

Ok here’s my issue. This is my understanding, paying customers were given tee times in the middle of a college tournament. When these young men finish a hole they start to practice by chipping and putting on the hole regardless if you’re waiting. I was behind another couple so I just thought pace was slow. They quit after 6 holes and on the seventh hole I realized why they left. I waited so long on 8th tee box I just gave up and skipped hole. Talked to starter and was told as a single I should expect to play fast and I was on pace. I told him he didn’t understand the issue and went to 10. But the 12th hole starter came out and apologized and asked if I wanted to go back and play first 9, which I did, so I never experienced the whole course.

The course is in good shape but for MY GAME it had way to many fairway sand traps and green side bunkers. The layout for me personally made for a long day.

Complaint.

Upon arrival staff guy said I was the only one booked for my tee time. But he could move me into an earlier time with a two or threesome. Pro shop person said no I had to play at appointment time regardless because I booked with golf now. And wasn’t a member .. starter used more common sense and put me out wit h a twosome.

First Class All the Way

Second time playing Nicklaus in about 4 months. I was impressed the first time but my score was a little less impressive. This time scored better,probably from knowing the layout so that has something to do with a second review. Once again the staff is terrific and went out of their way to be accommodating. Starter got me out a little early as I was a single. Course manager checked on me more than once and even asked a slower group of four to let me play through on the front. Course was in great shape and seemed to avoid the dry, hard spots that many of the courses I've played recently have had. Having played the other two courses recently I will say the Nicklaus is the hardest of the three but in excellent shape. If you can treat yourself due to the cost I highly recommend it. More courses should treat you this well.

Great shape

The course was fantastic if you like fast greens and plush fairways. The group in front of us was slow but steady. We ended up at the Watson club house first and everybody was friendly and accommodating but not so friendly at the Nicklaus pro shop desk. Over all a great day.

Awesome

Great layout and great course conditions. It’s pricy but FL in February? It’s is going to be expensive for golf. Greens were prefect, fairways were in great shape. Much better course then the other two course in Reunion.

Great day of golf

It was a true Nicklaus design. Plenty of fairway bunkers, smaller, fast, elevated greens, sloping fairways. We really enjoyed playing the course but in the end the key question is whether any course it worth the price they charge.

Reunion Nicklaus a Real Treat

Reunion/Nicklaus is one of the toughest courses I've played in Central Fla, today because of the chilly/windy conditions, but the greens are treacherous. They are so very quick, but undulations make for a tough putting experience. The layout is carved out of nice rolling terrain, and the surrounding homes (huge buffer zone for wayward shots) are spectacular. All holes have character, the par5s are tough, the par3s have good length variance,(#16 is signature hole); but the keys to success (scoring) is keep the ball out of bunkers and avoid the 3putts (I may have even 4putted #8). I followed up with kick-in Birdie #9, but few GiRs left me on Bogie Train all afternoon. Staff --starter, cart guy & bev-cart were really nice, so all things encourage a return visit. Thanx to GolfNow for the access to this premier course in Orlando.

Single on a Friday morning

They put me out as a single on a Friday morning. I was constantly running into the foursome ahead of me. Some waived/shouted me ahead of them and were not very happy. Four foursomes waived me through, so I had to hurry up and “finish” 5-6 holes at warp speed. Having people constantly mad at you because you are always up on them and not finishing 5-6 holes, made this experience not pleasant. The anxiety I felt was definitely not worth the $180 to play here.
