Seminole was built in the 1920s as a winter course for wealthy northerners. It was designed by Donald Ross and is consistently ranked as one of the top courses in the world. This nice history written by James Dodson and accompanied by photography by Joann Dost, chronicles the course from its inception. Founded by E.F. Hutton, Seminole was a refuge for Ben Hogan who used to practice there prior to playing in the Masters each year. The book includes beautiful color and black and white photos of the course, clubhouse, members, etc. The end of the book is a color spread which has a hole-by-hole analysis of all eighteen holes accompanied by pictures of each.
It took 75 years to get a history of this great course and it was worth the wait!
Brand new in original shrink wrap.
From the book’s frontis: The Story of Seminole has been written and produced solely for the members of Seminole Golf Club and is not produced for commercial distribution, thus its rarity.
