Live sports-starved folks will receive a treat on their TVs this Sunday afternoon — a charity golf match between two-man teams of PGA Tour stars. World No. 1 golfer Rory McIlroy and former No. 1 Dustin Johnson will play popular stars Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff at the fabled — but very private — Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Fla.
Ford’s Colony’s cul-de-sac named Seminole, with about a half-dozen houses on the Firestone side of FC, is not quite as exclusive as its namesake (ha), and certainly not as ancient.
Seminole Golf Club dates to 1929, when famed golf architect Donald Ross set to work developing the 140-acre property. The picturesque course, which runs along the dunes of the Atlantic Ocean, quickly became home to a corporate and political Who’s Who, with members such as Henry Ford II, Joseph P. Kennedy, Robert Vanderbilt, Jack Chrysler, Paul Mellon and Phillip Armour.
Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy and Ford played at Seminole, and now so does quarterback Tom Brady; he joined when he signed with the Tampa Bay Bucs this NFL off-season.
One of the intrigues of Sunday’s match, aside from the return of pro sports of a fashion, is that Seminole has never been seen on television. Even non-golf fans might tune in for a bit to check out what pretty pictures the 91-year-old course affords.
