Plantation Golf and Country Club, Venice


 

Plantation

The Plantation Golf and Country Club in the city of Venice in Florida is but one of the many communities that are linked with the state’s famed association with a plantation setting. However, this Venice country club community, nestled in a 1,300-acre property, sets itself from the rest. It has been voted as the Best Private Country Club in the Herald-Tribune Readers’ Choice Awards which also cited the Plantation for “Best Banquet Facilities” and “Best Tennis Facilities.”

These superlatives are more than justified as the country club has successfully grown as a private, member-owned club for more than twenty-five years. It has been true to its mission statement to ensure that Plantation facilities and programs enhance the club’s value to its membership.

Impeccable services are provided at this community’s clubhouse basking in rich accents of cherry wood and warm tropical tones. Here, members can have memorable dining experience at the Bermuda Grill whether it is luncheons or casual dinners. Dining options for members include weekly specials, seafood and pasta buffets, and lobster night. The same fresh and delicious culinary delights are available throughout the clubhouse including the Grill Porch area for casual dining.

The clubhouse also hosts special events such as trivia nights, lecture series, and interactive dinners. It has a private dining room, a fitting venue for the parties and socials scheduled throughout the year. Members can host their affairs here and avail of club services in planning and holding the event including food and drinks preparation. Small, private gatherings, like bridge tournaments, are accommodated at the Hibiscus Room.

Tennis privileges are extended to members in the Plantation’s Racquet Club featuring thirteen Har-Tru tennis courts. Activities here consist of weekly leagues and night matches in addition to junior tennis programs. There are in-house USTPA instructors to conduct lessons for players at all levels. Advanced players are treated with exhibition matches and tournaments. A pro shop ensures that members have access to the latest apparel and equipment as well as practice gear and stringing services.

Members are likewise afforded privileges to a Fitness Center equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. A certified personal fitness trainer is always on hand to supervise workouts and exercise regimens. Supplementary to all these facilities are a heated junior-Olympic size swimming pool and a spa.

Plantation Golf Courses

Plantation

Golfing privileges at the Plantation offer playing options in two well-maintained 18-hole championship courses—the Bobcat and the Panther—with pristine natural views and sparkling lakes sprayed by fountains. These courses, designed by the prolific course architect Ron Garl, both opened in 1980 to offer challenging play for all golfing skills. The Bobcat measures 6,840 yards at its longest tees. Its course rating is 73 and slope rating is 130 on Bermuda grass. The Panther measures 6,311 yards from the farthest tee placements, and has a 70.7 course rating and a 124 course rating on Bermuda grass.

The Plantation layout has been renovated recently through another noted course designer, Stephen Kay, to incorporate a highly modern irrigation system and new bunker designs. A venue for the Annual Tour Qualifier for the LPGA, the courses also regularly host men’s and ladies’ tournaments and special events. The club has a staff of PGA and LPGA pros to maintain its golf amenities at the highest levels of excellence.

Memberships at the Plantation fall under Full Golf, Golf, Tennis, and Social categories. Associate memberships for Family Full and Associate Family Golf are likewise available at a low initiation fee of $2,000.

Abundant Home Options

For Plantation residential options, there’s an abundance of choices from among single-family homes, maintenance-free villas, patio homes, and condominiums. An affordably priced condo unit with 1,636 square feet of floor area can have an asking price near the $160s. For a really upscale option, a sprawling estate home with 6,317-square-foot floor plan can have a tag price near the $1.5 million mark.

Access to many wonderful club amenities and life amid the splendor of a golf course are certainly enticing reasons to go for a residence at the Plantation. Another strong incentive is the golf community’s Venice location which is just a short drive away from Interstate 75.

This places the community only minutes away from posh Gulf Coast beach resorts and the wide variety of attractions in nearby Sarasota City, including entertainment, cultural, shopping, and business centers. Notably, the city of Venice also prides itself with many points of interest like the annual Shark’s Tooth Festival, a tribute to the fossilized shark’s teeth that abound on its shores and shallow waters. For all the luxury, elegance and convenience that go along with an acquisition of a home at the Plantation, this certainly comes as an exciting bonus attraction.
