Great property values can be found at the Tara Golf & Country Club in Bradenton, Florida, which has successfully managed to surmount the recent difficulties in the US real estate market. Tara is one of the few Bradenton real estate developments that have been able to provide continued improvements in services to its country club members.
In 2009, a $7.5 million renovation project was launched in the Tara real estate development. One of the components of this project was the restoration of the Tara clubhouse to its original Southern plantation theme and a complete overhaul of its kitchen facilities. Enhanced dining privileges, among other improvements, can thus be enjoyed in the club's Scarlet Restaurant and The Grille Room.
More and bigger social activities can be accommodated at the charming clubhouse with its multipurpose rooms and an outdoor covered patio. On top of its busy social calendar, the country club provides well-maintained facilities for the active lifestyles. Among these are two tennis courts, a heated swimming pool and a spa, and a fitness center with a full line of modern exercise equipment.
The golf course which immensely contributes to the value of the homes in Tara Golf and Country Club was also redeveloped. Already renowned as a fine layout designed by the respected course architect, Ted McAnlis, the country club commissioned Ron Garl, another noted course designer, for the course's renovation. The layout's upgrading included a total revamp of the greens and the adoption of a more sophisticated irrigation system to further maximize the country club's water resource. Additional conservation areas were likewise developed to further cut on water use.
This 18-hole par 72 championship course remains popular among golfers as shown by the many tournaments it regularly hosts. A round from its farthest tees goes at 6,845 yards. Course and slope ratings are at 72.8 and 136, respectively. Golfing at Tara features fast greens and challenging water hazards. Adequate practice facilities are provided in a driving range and putting green, in addition to the supplementary services of club pros.
