Sarasota Area Golf Communities
Welcome to the birthplace of Golf in Florida. John Hamilton Gillespie built Sarasota’s (and Florida’s) first golf course here in 1905. It was a nine-hole course located in what is considered downtown Sarasota today. In fact, our real estate office sits on the exact site the original clubhouse was built on. Gillespie’s course served as Sarasota’s only golf course until the 1920s until it was sold for development of this beautiful Gulf Coat destination.
Today there are more than 90 golf courses located within a 45 minute drive of downtown Sarasota. From the birthplace of golf to the Mecca of golf, Sarasota Florida has cast its reputation in the hearts of many golf professionals for more than 10 decades.
The sport that so many have come to enjoy has also become a lifestyle that is very desirable for retirees. When it comes time to enjoy all you have worked for, living in one of the Sarasota Country Club communities is a great way to spend your golden years.
There are many developments to choose from than span all affordability price points. For the occasional golfer who may play only a few times a season a home along a public course is probably the best option. For the more hardcore pros, The Concession is among the finest in the area. But, with a club membership that hovers around $100,000, it is not for everyone.
The links to the right will introduce you some of the golf communities in our area. In addition to club information you will also fine the current MLS listings of the homes that are for sale in them.
So sit back and enjoy the tour of Sarasota’s golf communities along the way you will also be introduced to a few golf communities in the neighboring County to the north, Manatee.
