A well worn course, spotty conditions and slow play abound

The course is connected to Florida State. It's not their official "home course' but it's where the players practice and hang out. The course is an older design -- traditional parkland golf. There are 5 tees boxes ranging from a slope of 114 to 129. There is always a lot of people playing so rounds can easily stretch into 5 hours.

Most holes are pretty straight and the fairways are tight but the course is fairly wide open and the rough is cut low so a missed fairway is not too much of a problem. Prices are reasonable and the round will be fun but not something to write home about.

Seminole is Closing 7/31/18

I work five minutes from here, and this is now all the buzz in town, as FSU is closing this course on 7/31/18 and blowing it up, to let Jack Nicklaus come in and redesign the course for all of the spoiled college golfers that play at FSU. This is easily the most heavily played public golf course in Tallahassee, and now that it is closing I am strongly considering a membership to a private course in town, as the other two (18 hole) public courses (Summerbrooke and Hilaman) will become overflowing with everyone who was playing here. I'd give a mention to Southwood, but no one will play that course any more then they already do, due to the greens fees being way too expensive for what this town will pay to play golf. It's a shame to see Seminole close, because the greens are as advertised - the best in town. But I guess progress demands that FSU upgrade their course, so as to attract top talent as they have before, in the likes of Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger, just to name a few. Farewell Seminole!

Perfect Condition. SLOW pace of play.

Seminole is in perfect condition right now. However, they continue to have the slowest pace of play of any course I have ever seen. No one knows how to play ready golf, and no one lets you play through. I have never once seen a marshal at this place, and golly do they need one. We were behind a group of young female golfers for the last few holes, and they were more concerned with taking selfies and talking than they were with actually playing golf.

A fun course and in good shape

Always a good course for the money and always in good shape but...... they really need a ranger and and a starter, a lot of 5 somes on the course slowing down the pace. Seems to have become an issue recently and the college kids are gone for the summer.

Pace of play was awesome. No ranger. Will not play again on weekend. Group in front of us literally flipped a golf cart. All sorts of weirdness.

The layout forces you to play the corse not just the distance, Good slopes on the fairways and the greens were nice and quick.

Great, underrated course

Played here for the first time in years and I was surprised at how much better it was than I remember. Greens were rolling super fast and conditions were great. I played at Southwood the other day and I can honestly say I enjoyed Seminole much more

Don’t play on Monday

I don’t know what others saw in this course. Greens were nice, sand was nice, and layout is nice. Everything else is marginal. Every Monday there is a group that has a shotgun outing. Pace of play was very poor. I think one of the guys said they play one other day. I got the hot deal at $30. Per player, it later became available at $14. Tee times on golf now could not have been accurate as the shotgun took up 9 times before us yet golf now indicated they were available. Goal of the course according to the mission statement was to be the best in Tallahassee, great goal but a very long way from achieving the goal.

Great Course

Great Course with a good layout. Blind shots and elevated greens make it challenging. Greens were great!! Definitely worth playing.

One of the Best Public Courses in the Area

We took a quick trip down to Tallahassee in search of warm weather. Didn't find it here, but enjoyed the experience at Seminole despite the temperatures. The course and greens were in great shape. I found the course to be a bit lengthy from the forward tees, so ladies may have to hit a lot of woods and hybrids in to speedy greens. The course layout was straightforward without a lot of tricked-up holes, but it still gives a good challenge. Staff was very friendly and the pace of play was better than we expected. We would recommend this course to others visiting this area.
