Seminole Legacy Golf Club

Tallahassee, FL Private

Overview

Seminole Legacy, the home course for the Florida State golf teams, can stretch to 7,800 yards but begs the question: Is that even long enough? It's far more apt for today's collegiate players than the former 7,100-yard layout from 1962. The course underwent a full-bore $10 million remodel in 2019 by Nicklaus Design with Jack Nicklaus II leading the project. The new design somehow managed to reconfigure nearly every hole—switching directions, creating new green sites—while staying respectful of the original hole corridors and particularly the mature pines and live oaks that outline avenues across the property. Florida has a repuatation as a flat state, but that's not true in the northwest panhandle around Tallahassee and westward as evidenced by sites like this one with lovely rise and fall. That means Seminole Legacy retains a sense of established gentility infused with contemporary bunkering and slick, smooth-shouldered greens that do more than enough to challenge the game's best amateurs.
