Reunion Resort (Jack Nicklaus course; formerly the Tradition course by Jack Nicklaus): This Jack Nicklaus signature design is one of three excellent layouts at the Reunion Resort. Kept company by the Palmer and Watson courses, the Nicklaus is arguably the pick of the trio, even though housing has replaced much of the natural forest through which the course was originally played.

Whereas the Palmer and Watson courses contain the more pronounced elevation changes, the Nicklaus (which has its own clubhouse) is characterised by sleeker lines and softer undulations. There is a relatively open feel to much of this wetland-parkland layout, where smooth-lined bunkers bestow an impressive look on each of the individually crafted holes. In addition to the ever-present bunkering and expansive sandy waste areas, small lakes and reed-filled ponds dangerously threaten alongside five or six greens.

Among many attractive holes, the par-4 14th is an inspired creation: an elevated tee, large sandy waste area, pot bunkers and water alongside the green combine to impressive effect. The signature par-3 16th has you playing across water to an elevated sliver of green; an imposing wooden bulkhead must be cleared to reach the putting surface. The 11th is another scenic par-3, again played to an elevated green.

As deceptive and challenging as it is beautiful, this excellently presented, big-dimension layout is yet another example of Jack Nicklaus's masterly design work.
