Though Country Club of Sarasota is the oldest neighborhood in the Ranch, it offers some of the most timeless styles. Lot sizes are big in this community and the landscaping is quite impressive. Many large trees adorn the community offering a lot of shade and that forest living feel. Nearly every home in the development sits cheek and jowl to the fairways of the Club Course, one of the two golf courses in neighboring Prestancia.
When the Country Club of Sarasota was built, the golf course was part of the Country Club of Sarasota development. 25 years ago after facing hard economic conditions, the course was sold to the developers of the Prestancia real estate development and a second course was built. The original Country Club of Sarasota clubhouse was turned into the Serendipity Racket Club and it remains one of the finest tennis clubs in Sarasota.
If you like to play golf fret not, memberships to Prestancia are available to Country Club of Sarasota residents. You still have the opportunity to play the links located out your back door.
