Sorry Bob (Ford), I was told the wrong award, it is th Bob Jones Award! Congratulations Again !


This email is for Bob Ford (PGA).
Bob, my name is Tom Hansen, and I am sure you probably do not remember me, but I roomed across the hall from you freshman year at Tampa in the TEP House. I am a big golf fan and just wanted to say congratulations on winning the Ben Hogan Award.After leaving Tampa, I finished school at the State Univ.of NY @ Stony Brook, where I still work. My son Todd is friends with HOFer David Graham, and we both went to his HOF Induction in 2015 @ St. Andrews. Congratulations again, Bob.

    Seminole is consistently ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. and the World by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

    This course was designed to resemble a Scottish links course, so there are few trees but plenty of water hazards. Many holes were designed to play alongside the ocean. Most of the greens and tees are slightly elevated, and the terrain is predominantly flat, but there is a ridge of mounding that comes into play in the middle of the course. The greens are somewhat large, undulating and reasonably fast.

    Aside from being a regular presence on GOLF Magazine's ranking of the Top 100 Courses in the U.S. and the world, this is also one of the most exclusive clubs in the world. Seminole turned down Jack Nicklaus for membership, so that should tell you something.

    Ben Hogan used to practice there for 30 straight days every spring to prepare for the Masters. He once said "If I were a young man going on the pro tour, I'd try to make arrangements to get on Seminole. If you can play Seminole, you can play any course in the world." Easier said than done, Ben.
