Reunion Resort, A Salamander Golf & Spa Resort

Reunion, Florida

By Roger Cox, Editor

This 2,300-acre resort/residential property is located in southwest Orlando, next to Disney's town of Celebration and six miles from the entrance to Walt Disney World Resort. At its core stands the 11-story Reunion Grande, a collection of 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom condos with fully equipped kitchens and such hotel amenities as a concierge, 24-hour room service, and daily maid service. It has a rooftop swimming pool, two signature restaurants, and retail shops. Its central location means you're not far from its five-acre water park, three designer golf courses, a spa and fitness center, and complex of 6 lighted HydroGrid courts.

At the helm of the tennis operation is Jamie Feagan, a lefty who played for the University of North Florida and was assistant director at the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club before coming to Reunion Resort to set up its tennis program. Jamie Feagan, Director of Tennis, Reunion Resort, A Salamander Golf & Spa Resort, Palm Coast, FloridaHe offers a variety of tennis options, including a daily drill clinic, Cardio tennis, New-2-Tennis, and junior clinics (in groups from age 4 to ages 13 and up) as well as group and private lessons, game matching, round robins on busy weekends, and a monthly exhibition. I haven't yet been there to take advantage of any of this; if you have, please review your experience for the benefits of those thinking of vacationing there.

Tennis aside, the Reunion Resort & Club has three 18-hole courses, one each designed by Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tom Watson. It is also the site of ANNIKA Academy, Annika Sorenstam's only training facility and one focused not only on golf but on fitness and a healthy lifestyle as well. A state-of-the-art fitness center affords a place to work out and take yoga or aquatic classes or book sessions with a personal trainer. There's also a spa offering skin and body treatments and a salon. Families can look forward to that waterpark, which has a lazy river, slides, and children's interactive area, and to Kids Crew, a daily children's program for those ages 4 to 12. Finally, guests can rent bikes or Segways and explore the trails cut through the resort or shuttle over to Hammock Resort for access to a beach.

Your Call

Here's what others have had to say about Reunion Resort, A Salamander Golf & Spa Resort.

  • 4-Ball Rating "Fabulous program, atmosphere, and facility. Warm staff and exceptional pro Jamie Feagan delivers fun, community and great tennis."—J.M., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Lots of tennis to be had here - daily clinics, cardio tennis, etc. Instruction is good and the head pro, Jamie, makes you laugh out loud while playing. Super fun! Highly recommend."—L.P., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 3½-Ball Rating "Pleasant, very nice facilities, excellent professional. Too manny players in each court at the camo, perhaps it was needed in order to attend the Holiday season"—R.B., Adv., April 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I was able to participate in lessons, drill clinics and camps. My game showed marked improvement. I felt the pro's did a great job with placing players with those of a similar level which made the camps and drill clinics more enjoyable and constructive."—B.K., Int., April 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "Jamie runs an excellent operation. He is an extremely knowledgeable and accomplished player and coach (not easy to find both), and even with over 30 years of tennis under my belt, he's given me some outstanding instruction. The hard-tru courts are in outstanding condition throughout the year and meticulously maintained. We get a great workout and have a lot of fun at the camps, but I think our kids enjoy their tennis camp even more. FIVE STARS for the Reunion Resort. I regularly go to other sleep away camps such as Saddlebrook and Total Tennis, and although this is a little bit lower key, I get just as much out of it and the environment is nicer. Keep it up!"—K.C., Adv., April 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "This resort is very family friendly. The tennis club in particular is our favorite. The adult clinics and kids programs are fantastic. The tennis program is great for serious players and the head pro is incredibly knowledgeable and an amazing coach. Our family has been on many other tennis vacations and Reunion ranks at the top for us. We look forward to our next vacation here!"—E.C., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "The tennis centre at Reunion is fantastic. The Pro's are brilliant both with adults and kids. Our whole family played tennis for 2 weeks. The camps were fabulous and the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The other tennis players were very friendly and it was easy to make friends and fit in well. Drill classes with Jamie Feagan the tennis pro are something NOT to be missed. We will return. thank you."—L.B., Int., April 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "My son has been to Jamie's tennis camps 3 times. He has always had a blast and always learns something new. Jamie is amazing with everyone and makes everyone feel welcomed. My son can't wait to return to the camp again in Dec. 2017. We recommend his camps and the facility to everyone."—A.G., Adv., April 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating ""—R.S., Int., April 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "The best tennis center we have been too! One son plays tennis competitively, one plays recreationally and one has barely played and Reunion tennis- Jamie and his staff- always find them the best groups to play with, learn from and most importantly have fun with. I have done the summer camps and private lessons for almost 6 years now and the quality is consistent since then. The facilities are well maintained and the atmosphere is always enjoyable. A great pro shop and pool nearby to cool off in make it a complete experience. My one son spends a considerable amount of time here and always asks to see Jamie and Jeff when we are here. He has improved his form, serve and overall play. I highly recommend Reunion Tennis Center!!"—T.P., Adv., April 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Seven members of my family participated in the various tennis camps this year and last. We varied in ages and abilities from beginner to advanced, with one having played competitively in college. All of us, without exception, loved the camps. The people running the camps were knowledgeable, friendly, and competent. They always made a point of getting to know us, placed us in the camps which suited our abilities, and made playing both fun and competitive. We could not have been happier, and we found no weaknesses at all. In fact, on one occasion when one of the younger children started to play, the camp instructor realizing the size of the racquet wasn't best for him, brought out a tennis racquet that fit him better. Besides the camp, when we've taken lessons, we've been very satisfied with them. I can't say enough about the camps being run at Reunion."—J.S., Adv., April 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "The staff was friendly and created an enjoyable atmosphere. My son enjoyed the individual training with Pro Jamie Feagan, he was fantastic. His energy is great and the kids / adults feed off of it. If staying at Reunion or in the Orlando area, I would highly recommend a visit to this tennis facility."—E.S., Adv. Int., April 2017
