Not so long ago, (before we ‘googled’); the best way to find a website was ‘to surf’ the web.
It sounds quaint, ‘surfing’ but back in the 90s, when Reunion was nothing more than abandoned Orange plantations and scrub-land, search engines like Excite and Alta Vista were a little hit and miss when it came to finding what you wanted.
Google of course, kindly fixed that with their accurate searches, delivering the best and most relevant web pages in most cases.
This weekend, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and surf again!
This time, I typed into google “Reunion Resort News” to see where I would start my journey. After a few clicks and adjustments, I ended up at the official website of the Golden Bear himself; Jack Nicklaus. The man who built Reunion’s 3rd and final piece of the PGA course trilogy. The Tradition course.
A few carefully chosen sentences, a handful of early course construction shots and smart presentation. Very much reminds me of the great man himself. No nonsense, and gets the job done, with lots of appeal.
Rather than getting into trouble for copying all of the images from the Nicklaus.com website, please feel free to take a look yourselves at Reunion way back pre 2007.
This Parkland-style layout is smooth and flowing, with long horizon lines and elevated tee boxes and greens. Yet The Nicklaus Course, a Signature Design by Jack Nicklaus, can be as deceptive as it is beautiful. Designed to tempt golfers into hitting risky shots with potentially big payoffs, the course challenges the golfer to step up to the ball with a carefully organized series of shots in mind. www.nicklaus.com/design/reunion
