The distinguished "Top 100 Courses" list, released annually by Golf Digest, recently revealed that Juno Beach's Seminole was ranked as the 34th best golf course in the world. The world was able to see the unqiue beauty and distinct dynamic of Seminole this past summer during a Covid-19 relief match featuring Palm Beach County residents Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson.
Here is what Golf Digest had to say about the local gem: "The course plays along and between two main dune lines, and Ross made the most of the opportunity with holes continually tacking in different directions. The club prides itself on its firm playing surfaces and when the coastal breezes kick in, watch out. Some grouse that the course’s reputation is built on the club’s exclusivity, which is unfair given that standout holes abound, including the 4th, 6th, 13th and one of the great trio of finishing holes in the sport. So impressed was Ben Hogan with Seminole’s virtues that he would play and practice here for 30 straight days each year leading up to the Masters."
The only other course ranked form the sunshine state was TPC Sawgrass in Pointe Vedra Beach, FL Pine Valley (NJ), Cypress Point (CA), The Old Course at St. Andrews, Shinnecock Hills (NY) and National Golf Links of America (NY) were the top five courses in the 2020-2021 list.
