Reunion Resort, Orlando, FL

Comments:

Whether you “winter” in Florida or simply join the flocks of snowbirds who load up and head to the sunshine state for a sabbatical, Orlando, Florida is a destination favorite for kids of all ages. Orlando is unmatched as the world’s #1 family vacation destination.

If you want to play on the links, then “Central Florida” is the place to be. Reunion Resort Golf & Spa Resort boasts signature courses by three legends of the game: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson.

In addition to three championship golf courses, amenities at Reunion include a five-acre, multi-pool water park, a first-class tennis complex, stables and riding trails, a state-of-the-art spa & fitness center, 18 miles of walking and biking trails and boutique shopping at the Reunion Square.

Golf at reunion resort includes the 7,147 yard Tom Watson course, his first Florida design. The course opened in February 2005 to rave reviews including my own. The Watson course is also home to a recent sensation called Foot Golf. Foot Golf is played like traditional golf but with a soccer ball and offers a unique and exciting way to experience the undulating fairways of the award-winning Watson Course.

The Watson Course joins one of Arnold Palmer’s best designs at Reunion Resort. Like the Watson Course, Palmer’s track also winds through the wetland preserve areas by way of numerous wooden cart bridges. Water, wetlands, woods and palm trees all come into play on this rolling terrain for those golfers that choose the wrong tees.

Reunion’s third championship course is a smooth and flowing parkland-style layout designed by Jack Nicklaus, with long horizon lines and elevated tee boxes and greens.

Reunion Resort’s accommodations include luxury one-, two- and three- bedroom Villas plus multi-bedroom Vacation Rental Homes for the entire family.

Location! Location! Location!……….Rosen is only 10-minutes from the Orlando international airport and that’s a big bonus.…..amenities include a beautiful pool complex among others…..they also have a great wine & store on the lower level…..the golf course is a typical Florida “links style” course. I must say that they’re lobby, meeting and wedding facilities look to be first class!

Tapatio Cliffs Resort & Spa Phoenix, AZ

Comments:

Great overall experience. Got to resort in 20-min from the airport. Sstaff members were very cheerful and helpful. Amenities include a beautiful pool complex and desert hiking/biking trails. Golf course is fun and challenging with lots of elevation changes and risk/reward holes….lodging includes suites with great views from cliff-side units. Their signature restaurant has the "Best" view for dinner in all of Phoenix….and anytime you can check-in after 10pm and get a delicious "5-star" pizza from the bar/lounge by 10:30pm, they've got my vote!...resort provides a perfect location for corporate groups, meetings & weddings. They have a wedding location at the pool that is really cool with 100 foot three-tiered cascading waterfalls as the background. It’s hard to find a better value in the Valley of the Sun.

LODGING: I stayed at the beautiful Resort at Squaw Creek in Olympic Valley, CA at the North end of Lake Tahoe, site of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games and recently voted one of the “Best Mountain Resorts” in the World for 2016.….the views from your hotel room of the mountains and the Links at Squaw Creek golf course are spectacular…..other amenities include: The Spa at Squaw Creek which was named a “Top 5 Resort Spa” by Conde’ Nast Traveler….I saw the fly-fishing classes while playing golf in the morning, they also have: footgolf, mountain biking & hiking, tram rides to the top of the mountain, shopping at the Olympic Village and one of the best mountain pool complexes.

GOLF: the Lake Tahoe area is home the best mountain golf courses in the World…Period! They include: Grays Crossing, Old Greenwood, Tahoe Donner, Shaffers Mill, Incline Village, Nakoma Resort & Golf and the Links at Squaw Creek. A couple of my favorites are Grizzly Ranch, a 5-star course where Grizzly bears occasionally wander on the golf course. In South Lake Tahoe, the 5-star mountain course just east of South Lake Tahoe, Clear Creek G.C and one course not to be missed is the Edgewater Golf Club on the shores of South Lake Tahoe. This is the home course for the Annual American Century Celebrity Golf Classic and home to one of the “Best” 19th Holes in the World.
