The Founders Golf Club

Following the ancient contours of traditional Scottish Links layouts, The Founders Golf Club's private18-hole championship golf course takes its cues from the gently rolling terrain and is set against a backdrop of centuries-old oaks, pines, and palms. Highlighted by a natural buffer of lush and untamed landscape, the par 72 layout offers a dynamic route along groomed fairways, tranquil lakes, and unspoiled wetlands.

Designed by architects Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and Ty Butler, and measuring 7,094-yards from the longest tees, each hole is sculpted in harmony with the natural beauty of the landscape to elevate the challenge and exhilaration of play. The golf course is a "core" design, where golfers cross no roads during play. For beginners, the layout provides a spacious driving range, pitching green, and an indoor practice room to enhance their skills in aiming the ball.

Sarasota's only traditional caddie program affords golfers the pleasure of walking the course at their leisure with no tee times required. A state-of-the-art teaching facility and golf shop are staffed with a roster of seasoned professionals who help each golfer reach the top of his or her game. Rentals for clubs and carts are also available at the club, as well as access to fully equipped men's and women's locker facilities with generous lounge areas.

For golfers and non-golfers alike, The Founders Golf Club offers superior amenities in the classically elegant 24,000-square foot Golf Hall, where a gracious ambiance is complemented by a full calendar, providing a myriad of activities. Inside the clubhouse, golfers can use a fine dining room, bar, and grille, or the private dining room with access to an outdoor verandah overlooking an oak hammock and the 18th green. Some of the many advantages afforded by club membership are The Founders' personalized fitness programs, tennis instruction sessions, Pilates and yoga classes, and other social activities.
