Seminole Golf Club, located in Juno Beach, Fla., is one of the most exclusive golf clubs in the world, although it’s been getting more of a close-up over the past couple of years.
The Seminole Pro-Member is one of the most intriguing tournaments of year — bringing in major champs, business moguls and some of the sport’s most powerful — and the club got some well-deserved TV time when Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff competed in the TaylorMade Driving Relief skins game, a fundraiser for coronavirus relief, live on NBC.
The course was designed by Donald Ross in the 1929. Some of the biggest names in golf are members. Tom Brady and Larry Fitzgerald of the NFL are members. Davis Love III has called its Pro-Member “the first major of the year.”
Ben Hogan once used it as his preparation for the Masters, playing the course for at least 30 straight days before heading to Augusta.
“Seminole is the only course I could be perfectly happy playing every single day,” he said. “It gives me a premium on precision, an emphasis on playing shots. If you can play well there, you can play well anywhere.”
