Highlighted by fast, firm and wide rolling fairways, a variety of strategically placed bunkers and large greens, the 7,257 yard, par 72 Independence Course is as much about strategy as it is about length.
Demanding a well thought out approach from every player regardless of skill level, The Independence puts a premium on a solid short game with spacious green complexes where club selection can vary from putter to lob wedge to three-wood.

The Independence course was the first of the Ginn Reunion Resort courses to open and also Tom Watson's first Signature design in Florida. The Independence offers a native appearance framed by numerous varieties of native grasses, azaleas, camellias, and other native foliage. While The Independence is certainly beautiful, it's equally challenging. Watson's thoughtful use of bunkers will make you think your way around.
