The Founders Golf Club

3800 Golf Hall Drive, Sarasota, FL, United States

One of Sarasota's most desirable golf communities, The Founders Golf Club offers a luxurious gated neighborhood of upscale residences perfect for both families and empty nesters. With the community's timeless beauty and elegance, residents at The Founders enjoy the mark of quality craftsmanship in each of their golf homes, which start at a little over $200,000 and range up to over a million for some of the more prestigious properties.

As one of the most exclusive golf communities in Florida, few community residents were surprised that The Founders was recognized in the 2008 Parade of Homes as ‘Best Overall Community' and won a place in Links Magazine and Golf's Travel + Leisure Top 100 lists. There are only 262 golf homes situated within the community, making The Founders' real estate a highly sought-after commodity.

The majority of the award-winning golf homes in the community have three to five bedrooms and bathrooms, along with spacious yards where homeowners can sit and relax while overlooking the nearby lakes and beautiful landscaping. Most residents at The Founders describe the community as a grand resort rather than residential golf property due to the wide array of offered amenities for social groups, physical exercise, and even golf tournaments.

Once inside, The Founders Golf Club residents can take part in a variety of social activities in the 24,000-square foot Golf Hall and utilize the full calendar of social, sports, and wellness activities managed by the friendly and professional staff at the club. Residents can take advantage of the fitness facility with its state-of-the-art equipment as well as a variety of fitness classes like yoga, dance classes, or Pilates. They can also spend their days on the two Har-Tru tennis courts, the basketball courts, the sand volleyball courts, or simply enjoy strolling along the scenic boardwalks.

The Founders comes complete without a pristine Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and Ty Butler designed 18-hole golf course. And best of all - with a limited membership of just 275 golfers, no tee times are required. The Founders Golf Club also offers an elegant setting for a luxurious dining experience in its fine dining room and a casual atmosphere for lunch in the bar and grill with an outdoor verandah overlooking an oak hammock and the 18th green. Each dining experience comes with the freshest and finest food available, with the goal of creating great and memorable experiences for residents and their guests every time.

With an encouraging social scene, the community features Bingo and Trivia Nights, matched up with fun-filled themed dinners, as well as wine tastings, gourmet kitchen and cooking classes, a luxury auto, and boating showcases, monthly mixers, and many other activities for residents. The Founders Golf Club is also conveniently located minutes from a vibrant downtown area with easy access to several high-end restaurants, bars, and attractions a resident should not miss out on. Multiple A-rated private schools, hospitals, and hotels are also located within a few minute's drive to the community.
