“Good food, but place could use some updating”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

We were at the golf club house restaurant for a retirement celebration. We traveled in a big bus from the hotel to get to the location. The food that they served was good, but not spectacular. The quantity or portions were small, both the salad and the entree. The desserts were also small in size. The waiters were all young, eager to please and make a good impression, so they did a very good job of serving. Since we were all more focused on the retirement event and the videos of the different stages of the retiree's life, we were interested in the speeches and other proclamations, and less on the ambience of the location. We had a very nice evening, but the club house could use some updating and refreshing.

“Good course, nice facility, friendly staff”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Played here during the week recently. Course is in pretty good shape overall. Nice range and practice green, bar & grill area seemed nice but we didn't find out. Staff was very friendly helping us get set up and ready to go after a weather delay.

While the course was probably a 7/10 condition wise, the main thing holding it back were LOTS of divots and unrepaired ball marks. On every green and every fairway there were many, many old and new ball marks or divots. I don't know if this is the members not keeping up with it, too many events, or a lack of focus from the greens crew but something needs to be done.

Carts were relatively new and peppy, but beware, the parking brake automatically applies if you take your foot off the gas going downhill and can make it tough to complete turns.

The neighborhood around it is very nice with many large homes, but doesn't encroach on the course.

“A great golf course and a nice restaurant”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

Southwood's golf course is by far the best in Tallahassee. It is both challenging and forgiving. The course is very well maintained and they have really good weekday rates - usually under $40 with a cart. The restaurant is very well run and the veranda is the perfect place for Sunday brunch. They have meeting rooms that I have used several times. They are usually available at no charge as long as your group eats there.
