Located along Florida’s coastline in Juno Beach, the 18-hole Seminole Golf Course is the first excellent course created in the deepest south of the United States. It showcases 6,787 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. It has a 73.6 course rating and a 139 slope rating on Bermuda grass. Designed by Donald J. Ross, the course opened in 1929.
Many golf experts refer to the Seminole golf course as having great routing since the trails, greens, and bunkers all provide to the place’s overall challenge and elegance. It also hosts some tournaments and events regularly, such as the George Coleman Invitational that caters to amateurs.
Like any other seaside golf courses, it may take you more than one occasion before you get to appreciate Seminole. Other courses far from the ocean often can be assessed without much knowledge on the wind direction and strength. You will find it quite difficult to steer your shots when the wind blows in different directions in great wafts.
The terrain of the golf course itself provides another distinct effect. Seminole Golf Course lies on a bowl with a flat bottom. There are high dune ridges occupying the bowl’s left side. And more dune ridges along the coastline of Florida occupy the right. The course also features many ponds at the center.
Seminole Golf Course also highlights one-of-a-kind flashed-face bunkers situated across the course. The bunkers were originally designed that way to work well with the sand. Ross made the 18th hole to occupy the property’s vast area. Hole 4 ranges 450 yards with a cross bunker blocking the green 30 yards away. In case you overcome the cross bunker, you will soon find that many more lead up to the green’s left area. You will definitely remember the course for its unique quality and trait.
