Members and their guests

If one were to choose the four most exclusive and esteemed private clubs in all of the US, they would have to be Augusta, Pine Valley, Cypress Point and Seminole. The latter is in Palm Beach, the snowbirds' paradise, and the course here was built by the finest architect working in the US in this period, Donald Ross. Somebody must have been doing something right since then, because Ross's creation has gone largely undisturbed. The grounds are right on the ocean and are dominated by a sprawling clubhouse done up in the style of a hacienda. Many great players have come through over the years; the membership has boasted a number from Walker Cup teams. Bobby Sweeney, after losing to Arnold Palmer in the US Amateurs in 1954, used to spend the cold months here and do battle with Ben Hogan in their own private tournament, where the prize was $100 and bragging rights.

By far the toughest course I‘ve ever played! Loved the design of each hole, especially on the back nine! Second shot is the key to this course. Otherwise you can easily get lost in the bunkers like me ;-)

Was very fortunate to get to play Seminole. Without a doubt the fastest greens I have ever played. Complimented with raised greens meant your approach placement was critical. A very special treat
