Longboat Key Club and Resort

Longboat Key Club and Resort, Longboat Key Florida

Longboat Key real estate

For seasoned observers of the Sarasota Florida Real Estate Market, it would be a gross understatement to label Longboat Key Club as a mere residential community. Within this 410-acre property are life and leisure facilities that have contributed much in making the lovely Longboat Key barrier island as one of the prime destinations for the well-heeled tourists visiting the southwest Florida Gulf Coast. It is also unique in the sense that the club has the only golf course among the barrier islands off the mainland Sarasota and Manatee counties.

Unlike most Sarasota golf communities, the Longboat Key Club has its own private beach with complete water-based recreational facilities such as a deep-water marina with 291 boat slips. Other similar amenities include a heated Gulf-front pool and Jacuzzi, cabanas and beach umbrellas. The casual and formal dining venues in the enclave are also anchored to the scenic views of the Gulf waters. These choices include the luxurious Sands Pointe and the poolside Barefoot’s Bar & Grille.

Besides these offerings, residents who opt for a club membership can gain access to several other privileges. One is a fitness center with professional trainers. Also at their disposal are a complete line of exercise equipment, a Mind & Motion Studio for well-being regimens, and a twelve-room spa for therapeutic treatments. The club too boasts of a Tennis Gardens with duly accredited trainers, twenty Har-Tru courts, locker and activity rooms, a pro shop, and a café.

For the golf enthusiasts, Longboat Key Club provides two challenging layouts—Harbourside and IslandSide—which Golf Digest magazine listed as among the “best places to play” in the entire US. The tree-lined Harbourside course meanders along Sarasota Bay with its three courses: Blue Heron at 3,386 yards; Red, 3,323 yards; and White 3,426 yards. The Islandside course, on the other hand, borders the Gulf of Mexico for a less forgiving tour of its 6,792-yard layout where the greens are relatively fast with their surfacing of Tif=Dwarf grass.

Property hunters keen on Sarasota homes for sale will be pleased to note that residences as conveniently located as those at the mainland are available at the Longboat Key Club. This property is at the southernmost end of the barrier island, and its residents only need to negotiate the John Ringling Causeway via the Gulf of Mexico Drive to access the Sarasota downtown. Along the way to this district’s life, leisure, and art centers, superb lifestyle alternatives can already be had at the St. Armand’s Circle teeming with trendy boutiques and unique restaurants, like The Columbia.
