The Meadows Country Club

The Meadows Country Club, Sarasota Florida

The Meadows

If you love to socialize, play golf and tennis, stay physically fit, and eat some fantastic food, The Meadows Country Club may be just right for you. The average age of the members is 68 so the membership is primarily made up of older adults, however, due to the Junior memberships that The Meadows Offers there is a growing percentage of younger members (in their 40’s) that are local to the Sarasota Area.

The club is about 30 years old and the properties in the community reflect the architecture of the era. The clubhouse however has been meticulously maintained and upgraded and the facility is in first class condition. This community features some very well priced Sarasota homes and golf course memberships and these two factors together make this country club community one of the most popular in the Sarasota area.

The Meadows Country Club Golf Courses

The Meadows

The Meadows Country Club offers 3 courses, the Meadows, The Highlands, And the Groves.The Meadows is the clubs signature course. It was redesigned by architect Ron Garl in 2004. It offers 5 sets of tee boxes (from 5200 to over 6700 yards) to provide an excellent challenge for beginners to seasoned players. The Meadows course is one of the best championship courses in Sarasota, and the speedy TifEagle(tm) greens contribute to its reputation.

The Highlands provides a very different, old-Florida golfing experience for members and guests. The course features small greens, narrow fairways lined with old oaks and pines, and several elevation changes. The course offers five sets of tee boxes and measures from 5000 to 6600 yards.

Tight fairways and sloping greens on The Groves course reward shot placement and accuracy, making this course feel like a championship par 72 course in spite of its par 65 rating. Designed by Arthur Hills, it is a great complement to the two championship courses, and you can always choose to walk on this course for the complete golf experience. With its nine par 4’s, eight par 3’s and one par 5, the Groves feels unlike any other short course you have ever played, and not one you will soon forget, so be prepared for a challenging and enjoyable round of golf that will make you want to come back again and again.
