Florida State hosting events at Seminole Legacy

Seminole Legacy

This week will be a busy week for Seminole Legacy Golf Club.

For the first time during the 2023 golf season, the club will be hosting home tournaments for both Florida State men’s and women’s golf.

The men’s tournament, the Seminole Intercollegiate, will kick off with the first and second rounds of the tournament Monday. The third and final round is set for Tuesday, with an award ceremony scheduled for 3:30 p.m.

Boston College, VCU, Indiana, Lipscomb, Ole Miss, Troy, UAB, Southern Illinois, Arkansas State, Florida Atlantic, Florida Gulf Coast, Jacksonville, Lamar and Northern Alabama are also set to participate.

Men’s head coach Trey Jones is excited about the opportunity to host.

“It’s going be a lot of fun. It is. It’s a long time coming,” Jones said. “We hosted a regional here, right after we opened but we have not had a men’s tournament for the last couple of years.

“I know our players are looking forward to having your families in town and getting ready to show off what we feel is one of the best collision courses in the country.”

The Seminoles are led by three all-American golfers in redshirt juniors Cole Anderson, Brett Roberts and Frederik Kjettrup.

Anderson had a career-best performance at the Maui Jim Intercollegiate, finishing second at the Mirabel Golf Club, while Kjettrup won the Watersound Invitational by shooting an FSU three-round record 18-under par (66-67-65) and Roberts tied for ninth at the Watersound Invitational, shooting a 7-under 209 (68-67-74).

“The game feels good, just a couple of mistakes away from a few really good wins,” Anderson said. “I think everyone is rounding into form here. The plan is to keep progressing and getting better with each event. Obviously, you want to peak at the end of the spring.”

Right after the men’s tournament wraps up, the women’s golf team will host the Florida State Match Up, starting Friday and running through Sunday.

While the men’s team has not hosted a tournament for a couple of years, the women also hosted the same tournament last season.

But this weekend will be the first opportunity to host one this season.

“It’s our only time all season we get to host something,” FSU women’s coach Amy Bond said. “The kids will get to sleep in their own bed, get to play in front of the home crowd.

“We’re pretty excited. Plus being here at Seminole Legacy, who can complain about…
