Sarasota Golf Club Colony, Sarasota, Florida
When looking at Sarasota real estate the trade off between being close into town, and getting a larger lot, can sometimes seem daunting. Not so at Sarasota Golf Club Colony. The community is located just east of the highway and right between Bee Ridge and Fruitville, providing easy access to both beaches and downtown. Lot sizes are generally 1/3 to 1/2 acres, and many are located on the golf course, giving the overall feeling of green space and openness.
The homes at Sarasota Golf Club were built primarily in the 1970s and 1980s, and are solid family homes, with 3-4 bedrooms and large yards. Although located along the Sarasota Golf Club course, there are no HOA fees at all and membership is not required. Sarasota Golf Club Colony is also located in and amongst Sarasota horse country, only adding to the neighborhood feel and open green fields. The neighborhood is zoned for Tatum Ridge Elementary School, one of Sarasota's newest K-5 schools, but one which has a great reputation and is scoring exceptionally well.
The Sarasota Golf Club itself is an often missed public course, but is a championship course that winds through mature trees and provides a nice balance of long and short holes. The club has a full practice range, a golf shop, and an informal grill room.
Sarasota Golf Club Colony represents the diversity available in Sarasota real estate - golf, open space, great school, close to beaches and town!
