“Outstanding Conditions”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Love this golf course. Played in mid-February, 2014. The week before they had just held an amateur tournament. Love the fast greens. Both fairways and greens were in excellent condition. The staff are very proud of their course and expressed great pleasure that we choose to play at their course. Fairly wide fairways. All around a fair and challenging course. The forward tees are at the right yardage. I played it at about 6,000 yards.

“Southwood Cottages”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

What a great find! If you are visiting Tallahassee and would like a unique and beautiful place to stay call Southwood and reserve on of their guest cottages. These are set behind a magnificent plantation house and are absolutely some of the nicest places that we have ever stayed. If we find ourselves in Tallahassee again this is the only place that we will stay.

“Loved playing golf here!”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

This is a beautiful looking course that is fun and challenging enough to play! The grounds have many magnificent, mammoth, old live oak trees festooned with spanish moss that only occasionally get in the way of your shots. The Clubhouse is designed well to fit this setting. The course is spread out so you don't feel crowded in by the houses that partially surround it.
There are lots of undulations in the fairways and very fast greens. Six tees include two choices for the ladies, and one tee called 'wee.'
On a Friday Dec. 18 at 9:30 we owned the course! Hardly any other players were out. Good food and prices in the clubhouse.

“A beautiful course to enjoy”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This course meanders through an upscale neighborhood so not only is it a beautiful course but the scenario is very nice as well
The course has great fastish greens and challenging holes.
The course is very well maintained and be counted on for some low scores
