Laurel Oak Country Club

Laurel Oak Country Club, Sarasota Florida

Laurel Oak Real Estate

For those seeking that country club lifestyle, the Laurel Oak Country Club of Sarasota Florida delivers everything you would expect for a price that most can afford. This beautiful community is home to 404 residences and two well manicured 18 hole, par 72 championship courses. Average age of members is 57 which gives Laurel Oak one of the “youngest” membership rolls of any country club in Sarasota.

Though the Recession has been hard for many, this economic downturn has brought living in such a community into reach for many would-be home buyers who are now approaching retirement or those who are now empty nesters. It has been more than 8 years since we have seen Laurel Oak home prices this low and more than 50 years since interest rates have been this attractive. These two things combined together create the perfect buying opportunity.

What makes Laurel Oak Country Club really attractive compared to other country clubs in the area is the cost of the memberships. Typically country clubs of this caliber require extremely high membership initiation deposits, some as high as $100,000. Laurel Oak requires a membership contribution of $6,000 and monthly dues of $764 for their highest family membership level. This is really a bargain considering the value this club offers its members.

The Laurel Oak Golf Courses

The Laurel Oak West Course was re-designed in 2005 by Rees Jones. This course if one of the most beautiful courses I have ever seen, the fairways and the greens are in absolute perfect shape. The course measures 6934 yards from the black tee box, 4647 from the white.

The East Course is a Gary Player Signature Course which was completed in 1995. The Course measures 6,875 yards from the black tee box, 4,673 from the white and is also in immaculate shape.
