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

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.

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.

Greens and fairways in good shape. Rough was ok. Pace of play was not good and it took 4 1/2 The ranger finally moved a group along but we were already on 10 by that time. Good value for the price. $30

This course is in average shape but cheap to play. An above average layout with excellent greens. Faiways are a little rough. But for 13.00 bucks how can you go wrong and played in 3.5 hours.

The course and staff were amazing; however, without a Marshall or starter the pace of play was awful. A twosome jumped in front of us to join a foursome. A couple of twosomes behind us gave up after 10 holes. It was a lot of hurry up and wait. The round took 5 hours to complete. Ridiculous for a course in great conditions and amazing layout. The young lady in the clubhouse was awesome and friendly. It started at great with her and went down from there. With those simple course corrections I would gladly go again and invite others.
