Want That Private Golf Club Experience? Try Seminole Lake

By: Tim McDonald


One of the benefits of these economic times is that many private golf clubs, experimenting with different revenue models, are opening up to the public.

So, if you ever wanted a private, Florida golf club experience, now is a good time for it.

Seminole Lake Country Club is one of the latest examples. It's a private club in Largo that has a year-round, "member for a day" package.

For $39, you get a round of golf, shared cart, range balls and lunch – and you don't even have to tip. That's included.

The course was designed by an architect named Chic Adams and built in the early 1960s. Like a lot of country clubs built in that era, it won't overwhelm you with length like many modern courses; Seminole Lake is barely 6,500 yards from the back tees.

It has a full-service bar and restaurant, locker rooms, driving range and a short game practice area.

The course has had some mixed reviews – this is one of the few Florida tracks I have yet to play -- so my advice would be to try the package and if you like it, consider the club's book of 10 "member for a day" packages for $390, with the 11th round free. The offer is good through October.

If you and your buddies can't wait, Seminole Lake has a "foursome special," any time, any day for $116.

Call 727-391-6255 for more information.
