The Founders Club

The Founders Club, Sarasota Florida

Founders Club real estate

A search in the Sarasota Florida real estate market for a property steeped in tradition will definitely include The Founders Club. This 700-acre property in Florida, after all, has been developed to pay tribute to those who helped shape the foundation of Sarasota City and the development of golf in the US. Among them is John Hamilton Gillespie, an immigrant from Scotland who was one of those who introduced golf in the States during the 1880s and was the mayor of Sarasota at the turn of the twentieth century.

The strength of tradition in The Founders Club real estate strongly manifests in the sustainability values that went into its development. The natural landscape and its native flora were well-preserved and traditional architectural designs were adhered to in developing the entire complex. This is at once evident in the Golf Hall, the club’s 24,000-square-foot clubhouse built in classical style and design.

Founders Club real estate

This clubhouse is striking for its expansive outdoor verandah that puts into a showcase the golf community’s iconic Florida palms, mature oaks, pine trees and scenic lakes.Inside The Founders Club clubhouse are amenities that contribute to the timeless binds among family and friends. Club members have access to fine dining facilities as well as to a bar and grille.

Member privileges extend to a fully-equipped fitness center and full-service locker rooms. In addition, family bonding can be had in a recreation center and a picnic pavilion. Friendly games can also be scheduled at several courts for volleyball, tennis and basketball. There are also miles of pathways developed into the property to afford communion with the pristine 100-acre natural surroundings composed of woodlands, lakes, and wetlands. Membership in The Founders Club is limited to 275 for golf with similar limits set on social membership. Nevertheless, invitational membership packages are available with specific privileges and corresponding fees.

In keeping with the high tradition of golf, the links at The Founders follow designs of those in Scotland where the game had its origins. A famous course architect, Robert Trent Jones, created the 18-hole, par 72 layout that is endearing for its undulating slopes accented by lakes and wetlands amid lush palms, pines and oak trees. Play goes uninterrupted in this 7,094-yard beauty as no interior roads intersect the entire layout. A round can also proceed at a very leisurely as the club has a no-tee-time policy. Modern practice facilities are available along with club pros for tips and instructions.
