Sara Bay Country Club is a private, member-owned golf club located just north of downtown Sarasota, Florida’s cultural capital, and a short drive from the Gulf Coast Keys of Longboat, Lido, St. Armands, Bird, and Siesta, as well as Lakewood Ranch less than a mile from Sarasota Bay. Located in Manatee County with a Sarasota address, there are homes along the greens and fairways of the Sara Bay Country Club, on the canal front and beautiful bay front estates. The community is halfway between downtown Bradenton and downtown Sarasota. Sara Bay Country Club, one of Florida's oldest golf course communities, was originally called Whitfield Estates Country Club. Today the newly restored Sara Bay golf course offers all golfers a classic golf experience on a beautiful, historic course.
Sara Bay offers a challenging, walkable Donald Ross designed course, a vibrant social scene, and a casually elegant clubhouse for an exceptional member experience. Sara Bay Country Club indulges members with exceptional clubhouse facilities. Members can enjoy after-golf socializing in the Donald Ross Grill Room and in the evening, renowned fine dining in the Palm Room. Festive seasonal events feature live entertainment, dancing and gourmet meals. Full service locker rooms for both men and women, including private card rooms, further enhance the traditional atmosphere of the club.
Residents enjoy easy access to the Sarasota International Airport and are within minutes of University of South Florida, New College, Ringling School of Art & Design, and the Asolo Theatre. In addition, beautiful beaches are just a short drive away. Shopping, restaurants, medical facilities and entertainment are nearby.
