2022 Jackson T. Stephens Cup Highlights Reel
Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida may be the quintessential Donald Ross golf course. It’s known for its broad fairways, restrained green undulations and vast variety of challenging bunkers. Founded in 1929, it was the last course Ross designed by the ocean, separated from the Atlantic by low dunes. It is truly a mecca for the greats of the game, from exalted amateurs to hall of fame professionals. Seminole has had a rich history in the game of golf and recently hosted the 48th Walker Cup Match which resulted in the United States Team victorious over the Great Britain & Ireland team 14-12.
