It was designed by the golf icon Gary Player and measures 6,875 yards from the black tee box and 4,673 yards from the white. The older West Course was redesigned in 2005 by another golf luminary, Rees Jones, who gained fame as the “US Open Doctor.” The yardage from the black tee box for this layout is 6,934 yards and 4,647 yards from the white. The renovation of the West Course resulted from the country club’s commitment to bring to its members the very best golf facility in Sarasota. Laurel Oak has been host to the US Open qualifying tournament and still remains as the venue for the Michelob Ultra-Lite National Tournaments.

The Laurel Oak golf facilities also include two practice areas, an area with bunkers for short game practice and a chipping area and putting green. Individual lessons as well as golf clinics are available. Country club professional staff, some of which are PGA tour veterans, conduct these sessions. Organized golf events for men are held thrice on weekdays and on Saturdays. On the distaff side, the Laurel Oak Ladies Golf Association holds either a nine-hole or an 18-hole tournament once a week. The country club’s professional staff likewise holds individual or clinics and group lessons, as well as three-day Holiday Camps or Summer Camp programs for its junior members.

Laurel Oak Residences

A quiet residential community of more than 400 hundred single-family homes is also within the Laurel Oak enclave. There are also three minor subdivisions inside consisting of sixty maintenance-free homes where the community takes care of the landscaping. The entire community with its gated environs, 24/7 security, and well-lighted roads is an ideal neighborhood to raise a family.

Residences on large, spacious lots range in floor area from 2,370 to 5,173 square feet. Asking prices for these homes would fall between a little below the $300s and close to $1.4 million. More luxurious and larger estate homes of more than 10,000 square feet area will likely be at the $3 million level.
