The Founders Club


 

The Founders Club

Life flows unhurried at the Founders Club, a luxurious, private-member golf course and real estate community in Sarasota, Florida. This is a real estate development that masterfully combined golf and country club living in a 700-acre property with lush greeneries and sparkling lakes.

This setting is perfectly complemented by a 24,000-square-foot clubhouse, the Golf Hall, with an eloquent, traditional design. Its facilities include an exquisite dining room and an outdoor verandah offering a fabulous view of the verdant environment. In addition to a private dining room, bar and grille, the club house also provides a modern fitness facility, a pro shop, and fully equipped locker rooms with spacious lounge areas.

Likewise accessible to the club members are recreation center suited for family gatherings, two Har-Tru tennis courts, a basketball court, a sandy volleyball court, and a picnic pavilion. Miles of brick paver pathways were likewise built into the property for a close-up appreciation of the serene natural surroundings that include 100 acres of woodlands, lakes, and wetlands.

Signing up for a membership presents options from either equity or non-equity choices. Equity membership has two types: Signature Equity Golf for fee-free, year-round playing privileges and Equity Social for year-round access to non-golf privileges and reduced golf fees from May to October. Non-equity options are comprised of invitational memberships for either social or golf and invitational associate golf. Seasonal and sampler membership packages are available too.

Scottish-style Golf Course

The Founders Club

A round of The Founders’ golf course takes the player to a 7,094-yard, par 72 layout built along the traditional style of Scottish links. This course, which came under wraps in 2005, is a design by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., an eminent member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects. Shots from the tees to the greens cover a stroll through a gently rolling terrain with well-manicured fairways, serene lakes and pristine wetlands.

Exhilaration and challenge in this championship course is enhanced by the natural splendor masterfully woven in its entire 18-hole configuration. Dynamic play is assured by its core design where no roads need to be crossed by the golfers. Residences in The Founders community are also judiciously set back away from the playing field such that the course backdrop is dominated by a well-preserved, natural buffer of centuries-old pines, oaks and palms. Leisurely play is further ensured in the no-tee-time policy at The Founders golf course. Member-golfers also have access to a teaching facility with state-of-the-art appointments.

The Founders Club Community

The residential community at The Founders Club is a definition in exclusivity in an intimate setting. There are only 262 home sites within this showcase to the natural beauty of Florida. Prices tags of homes on sale here start in the $800s and range in size at around 3,000 square feet. Larger options of over 6,000 square feet in floor area can be priced in the vicinity of the $3.8 million level.

One source of pride for current homeowners is the individuality and architectural expressions displayed in the elegant residences of their community. Some of the best Florida builders, such as Taylor Woodrow, John Cannon, Todd Johnson, and Lee Wetherington, were the creators of these beautiful homes.

Hence, as to be expected, The Founders Club emerged as the “Best Overall Community”
in the Sarasota/Manatee Parade of Homes in 2008 and 2009. For three consecutive years (2007–2009), it has also maintained its standing in among America’s top 100 premier properties/golf course communities as listed by LINKS magazine and Travel + Leisure Golf. The Sarasota Herald-Tribune Readers Choice Awards has also voted The Founders as the “Best New Community” in 2008 and 2009. Such accolades alone sum up the high desirability of The Founders in the real estate market.
