The Oaks Club, Osprey


 

The Oaks Club

The Oaks Club is one of the finest waterfront golf communities in Florida.  Situated in Osprey, Sarasota County, this private, member-owned country club has a history that dates back nearly a century ago. With the fine reputation that this club established over the years, its members not only are from all over the US but from other parts of the world as well.

Community life at The Oaks gravitates to its 34,000-square-foot club house brimming with social activities and amenities. The world-class facilities here include twelve Har-Tru tennis courts, four of which are lighted for evening play.  It also features a croquet court, a heated junior Olympic-size pool with an adjacent kids’ playground. There are pro shops for both tennis and golf players convenience.

Dining facilities are as impressive.  For formal affairs, there’s The Glen Room; bars are incorporated in The Tavern and the Grille Room.  Various social activities, either formal or informal, are constantly ongoing for men’s and women’s clubs, ranging from bridge and mahjong sessions to an active book exchange and forum among members.

Several types of club memberships are available at The Oaks.  Among these are the equity and social memberships which are required for all property owners within the country club community.  Non-residents are eligible for associate memberships in golf, tennis, junior tennis, and dining.

Two Golf Layouts

THe Oaks Club

Players of all levels will enjoy a round of golf in the two 18-hole, par 72 championship courses of The Oaks with their scenic layout and breathtaking elevation changes.  One of them is the Eagle which was completely renovated in 2007 by Arthur Hills, a world-famous golf course architect.  This layout, widely acknowledged as one of the best in southwest Florida, measures 7,003 yards from the farthest tees and 5,022 yards from the nearest, and has a slope rating of 147.

The other golf course is the Heron with yardage ranging from 4,986 to 6,695 yards.  It has a slope rating of 136 from the championship tees.  This layout’s original design was by another famous golf course builder, William Byrd. The original course opened for play in 1984.

The club has a professional golf staff as mentors to members who want to improve their skills.  Their services, supervised by a PGA pro, are available year-round.  Complementing the golf lessons and clinics are the excellent teaching and practice facilities at The Oaks.  Members are also privileged with full-service locker rooms and reciprocal agreements with local clubs during the summer months.

Three Neighborhoods

The Oaks Club community is composed of three distinct neighborhoods:

  • Oaks Bayside—consisting of 197 home sites, many of which directly fronts Little Sarasota Bay
  • Oaks Clubside—featuring 358 estate-sized home sites at the borders of the club’s golf courses
  • Oaks Preserve—comprised of home sites located in a natural estuary

The gated Oaks Preserve is further subdivided into: Bishopscourt, with ranch-style villas and two-story homes; Bishopscourt Townhouses, two maintenance-free buildings with its own club house and pool; Emerald Woods, with maintenance-free villas; and the Meridian, four ten-story condominiums overlooking Sarasota Bay.

Choices of residences in The Oaks community can surely be wide in terms of home design, size, style, and price.  A sales-listed estate home with a floor area nearly 10,500 square feet can have an asking price of almost $7 million.  A three-bedroom, 2,055-square foot condo unit at the Meridian, on the other hand, can have a tag price near the $300,000 mark.

The fabulous location of The Oaks community, coupled with the wide range of real estate purchase options, is a great incentive to many home buyers and investors.  Aside from the numerous member privileges at this golf club, its community is just a short drive away from the many Florida attractions that too keeps the real estate market humming.
