18-hole, resort-style course designed by Robert Walker.
Wildwood Country Club 850-926-4653 3870 Coastal Hwy. Crawfordville, FL
Approximately 20 miles south of Tallahassee on Highway 98. The attraction here is the swiftly moving rounds and the course’s relatively low resistance to scoring. Director of Golf David Hoover says, “We’ve got a reputation for playability and conditioning. When I say playability, I mean that high handicappers always seem to score well out here, and our course is always in good condition.”
Wildwood, opened in 1995, is a broad, natural course that treads lightly through lowlands just miles from the Gulf of Mexico. It’s quiet and scenic (perhaps only a dozen homes populate the course), and there is a simple, refreshing joy to playing this layout that measures just 6,500 yards from the tips. “Golfers from Tallahassee come here to get away from the hustle and bustle and five hour rounds,” Hoover says. “For some reason, even when we’re extremely busy, players get around our course in four hours. We’re definitely at the top of the market because we’re out in the middle of nowhere and we’re always busy.”

Memorable holes include the 520-yard 12th and the 450-yard 18th, both featuring scenic vistas and supreme challenge, where staying close to the water (all the way down the left on #12, right on #18) creates the best angle for reaching the tucked pin positions.

Don Veller Seminole Golf Club. 2550 Pottsdamer Road, Tallahasse, FL. 850-644-2583
Noted for its convenient location south of the Capital and Florida State’s campus and friendly green fees ($10-$32), Seminole has been serving the public since 1962. By all accounts this used to be a “good ol’ boy” course where the locals ran the show, but a recent $7 million upgrade has sprung the course into the 21st century. “We’ve taken it from a dog track to a course that can rival Golden Eagle (Tallahassee’s premier private course),” Head Pro Steve Soriano says. As one expects from a Bill Amick designed course, Seminole is fairly open with no trickery and modest hazards. It certainly serves as a welcoming venue for all levels of player. It’s also home to the Florida State golf teams (until this fall). Though the collegiate players tend to think it plays too easy, Soriano says, “I’ve yet to see any of them shoot a really low score.”

The course was formerly known as Winewood Country Club until the golf course was purchased by the City of Tallahassee in 1981. The course is tightly routed over moderately hilly terrain, especially on the back nine, with plenty of room off the tee and improved playing conditions throughout.
The Players Club at Summerbrooke 7505 Preservation Rd Tallahassee, FL . 850-894-4653
Designed in 1988 by Dean Refram, this course is tight and hilly with some of the most advantageous golf terrain in the county. Though not long at just over 6,800 yards from the championship markers, it’s one of the more difficult courses in the Tallahassee region to post a score. Summerbrooke qualifies as a great value with green fees usually ranging from $25-$35.
