While Southwood Golf Club is decent, the staff are not. Four of us golfed on a Saturday with a 11:45 tee time. All were at T box early. Two players had never been to the course so were chatting about drive strategy. These discussions continued throughout the course as the course is challenging. At the turn overpriced hotdogs and adult... More

This is my third visit and every time the course has been perfect. The maintenance staff here is tops, but not to leave out the Golf Shop, they are tops as well. You will not have a bad experience here and be on your beat game for the 4th hole. The approach shot demands you attention,do not take it for... More

A beautiful golf course within a suburb of Tallahassee, created within the past 10+ years as a planned community, saving beautiful live oak trees, some rolling hills, and lots of green grasses from formerly verdant pastures of Florida bred and born cattle. Residents and builders have created and kept up a great addition to the Tallahassee landscape. My visits to... More

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.... More

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... More

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... More

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

Probably the best Golf Course to play on in Tallahassee. Although steep in price, well worth it once or twice. Food is usually very good, but expensive. Great visit while in Tallahassee, for a golfer.
