Madison, Miss. – Reunion Golf & Country Club in Madison, Miss. has once again been honored by Club + Resort Business, this time for having one of the “Top Private Club and Resort Culinary Experiences” in the United States. In June, the golf and resort industry trade publication recognized Reunion as having one of the “Top Racquet Facilities in the U.S.” Club + Resort Business covers the operations and management staff of country clubs, semi-private/daily fee, city clubs, yacht clubs and resorts that operate club-like facilities.
In Club + Resort Business’ most recent ranking, Reunion placed number 42 on the top culinary list of club and resort properties. Private clubs and resorts were judged by an independent panel of club chefs from several of the hospitality industry’s most well-respected properties. Rankings reflect the judges’ scoring of submitted entries that included data on annual food-and-beverage revenue, membership size, weekly cover counts, banquet capacity, a la carte and banquet menus, food costs, certifications, front- and back-of-house photos and more. The judges scored each entry independently, assigning points to the various aspects of the data and information submitted.
Reunion Golf & Country Club’s culinary operations feature five unique dining options for members. Ella Jane’s Pizza Pub, located on the first floor of the clubhouse, offers a casual, family-friendly atmosphere with an outside patio and seating area complete with cozy teakwood furniture and linear fire pits. “EJ’s” made-to-order pizzas are made from hand-kneaded Italian flour with San Marzano tomatoes and baked in an open-face fired pizza oven. Kristie’s offers a sophisticated, yet comfortable a la carte dining experience featuring farm-fresh local ingredients to create Southern favorites with an international flare. In addition, the henry is a charming bar with the personality of a sophisticated Southern gentleman. Here members enjoy live music every weekend, an expansive wine cellar and a wall of the finest and most distinctive selections of hand-crafted whiskey and scotch.
