TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (June 8, 2007) - To get to the Seminole Golf Course, you turn left out of the real world and right into the Florida State University campus, just short of the National High Magnetic Field laboratory.
Or, you could just enroll.
FSU, which owns the course, is one of 18 universities in the country to offer a PGA Professional Golf Management Program accredited by the PGA of America. Times haven\'t just changed, they\'ve exploded. There was a time when people argued whether golf was even a sport.
Now it\'s a college curriculum - and a pretty sweet one at that.
The classrooms are on the second floor of the Seminole clubhouse, looking out over the course. If these were condos for sale, they\'d be advertised as clean, bright and spacious, with a lovely golf course view.
\"We have probably the nicest classrooms on campus,\" Program Director Jim Riscigno said. \"We try to keep it a secret.\"
That may be hard to do with around 60,000 people parading through the golf course annually, many of them students.
Seminole itself is hardly a secret, especially after a dramatic renovation two years ago that transformed the golf course. Built in the 1960s, the old layout was showing its age; all the greens wore their original turfgrass. It\'s like an old, society grand dame wearing the same dress for three decades.
