The Golf Course……the Hole Story

Hole #1, B/195/W/175 R/125…This is an elevated tee, the green is guarded by a bunker on the left. Too far left off the tee will put you in the Dolly Parton’s, too long and you are in the Saw Palmettos. Palms and Pines line the right side of the fairway.

Hole #2, B130/W120/R/105/95…This hole presents the first water challenge, from an elevated tee box, accuracy is important here. The green in guarded by bunkers on the front left and upper right side. A shot too far left will leave you in the palmetto islands, not a good place to be.

Hole #3, B/365/W/310/R/260…Tee boxes for B/W are over water. To be safe your drive must be at least 225 yds. From the B/W tees this is a dog leg right. The green is guarded on the left front with a bunker and short apron on the right, adjacent to the Brazilian thicket. There is a drop area across the water.

Hole #4, B/140/W/125/R/115…A delicate shot here to a slightly elevated green, guarded by a bunker on left and waste area, center right. Palm trees guard the right front. These palms are a ball magnet!

Hole #5, B/345/W/275/R/250…Your tee shot should not exceed 240 yds. There is a lake along right side of fairway, terminating completely across the fairway. Guarding the green on left front is a bunker, there is an apron of 15 yds in front of the green. Look for a bunker deep into the fairway on the left, approximately 100 yds from green, drop area on other side of water.

Hole #6, B/215/W170/R140…One of our most difficult holes. B/W tees must carry the water, stay left of center when placing your ball on the green. Two bunkers on left side of fairway and a grassy strip of 15-20 yds separates them. Waste area behind green. There is a drop area.

Hole #7, B/155/W140/R/130…Straight forward Par 3, avoid leaning Palm tree guarding the green, a bunker behind it on right. Waste area on left side of green. Over the green and you are in the Brazilian Pepper thicket.

Hole #8, B/160/W150/R140…This Par 3 has an elevated tee box which affords you a look at the undulating green that is guarded by a deep bunker on left front, and a waste area on right. Fairway is lined with Palms on right.

Hole #9, B/115/W105/Red/95…To complete the front nine requires an extremely delicate shot to the green, anything over the green will go into the Brazilian Peppers. A short shot and you will find the large waste area guarding the entire front of the green. There is an apron of 3-6 feet in front of the green.

Hole #10, B330/W300/R/250…This hole begins a series of Par 4’s. An elevated tee with a wide fairway bordered on right by the Dolly Parton’s, which run the length of the fairway and on the left Palms and Live Oaks. The green is guarded by a large bunker on left front and right side. And yes, over the green, Brazilian Pepper thicket.

Hole #11, B/415/W/385/R/310…Our most challenging hole. At least a 225 yd drive will allow you to go to the green on your second shot. Otherwise you may choose to lay up. It is approximately 105-115 yd across the water to the fairway. Staying straight will avoid the sand trap on the left side of the fairway. An elevated green is guarded on left and right by bunkers, water wraps around the green. There is a good size apron, and a drop area over the water.

Hole #12, B/310/W/290/R/255…Once you cross the entrance road to the Seminole Lakes Community, a Par 4, marked by a wide fairway, lined by Palms, Brazilian Pepper trees, and Live Oaks. Your challenge will be to place your approach shot on the green that has a slight tilt toward the water. This elevated green is guarded by a steep lipped bunker on left, water on right and rear of green. Be aware of Palm to right and front of green. This is another ball magnet.

Hole #13, B/205/W195/R/155…A long Par 3, fairway with water on right side, bunker on right, the green has a slope to it. To make things more interesting the apron slopes to the front. Careful ball placement here is a must.

Hole #14, B/140/W/135/R/130…Relatively short Par 3, a large green securely guarded by bunkers, left and right. Taking your ball just over the traps onto the apron will cause the ball to bounce right on the left trap and left on the right trap. Be aware of water behind green.

Hole #15, B/130/W/125/R/120…Another short Par 3 will again take you over water on all tees. This is a large undulating green that is guarded by bunkers on left and right(2). Pay attention to wind speed and direction.

Hole #16, B/335/W/265/R/220…Important to stay in center of fairway since any shot wide will bring Palms and Live Oaks into play on 2nd shot. Two bunkers on left side of green.

Hole #17, B/225/W/210/R/195…A Par 4 that requires placement of your tee shot. Long hitters can reach the green but beware of Palm trees and bunkers that guard the green on both sides. Smart play here is to be right of center with 2nd shot to green. Palms and Live Oaks line the fairway.

Hole #18, B/370/W/300/R/245…This finishing hole will provide you with a challenging first shot. Stay right of center in the landing area for a clear 2nd shot to the green which is guarded on three sides by bunkers. Water runs along the right side of fairway.

Seminole Lakes as a Wildlife Sanctuary

Wildlife is abundant at Seminole Lakes. Stories are told of raccoons stealing golf balls on #3. Fish Crows stealing balls and taking flight on #12. Osprey and Eagles fish daily in our lakes. A Brown Pelican regularly visits the lake along #18 during the winter season. Cormorants not a summer resident in our lakes return in winter and claim the lake around #13 as home for the season. Sometimes they swim in formation! Mottled ducks are residents and claim the lake on and around #5 their home. Fierce fights have been observed when one invades another's 'territory'. #5 and #11 are homes to Sand hill Cranes and there are gopher turtles on #11. Bald Eagles often use the old snag behind #9 as a perch. Our winter visitors who fly the farthest (we think) are from the northern tier of the NW Canadian Provinces. Yes we do have gators and this year mama brought her babies to the lake on #2 tee box. A Red Shouldered hawk nests in a live oak tree on the 17th fairway.

Nesting Great Blue Herons and Anninga's can be seen from many of our greens. Year-round and winter residents (the true snow birds) include migratory waterfowl/shore birds, raptors, and song birds. All of the listed birds are here winter and/or summer. Song birds are abundant, warblers, thrushes, cardinals, swifts etc.
