In the 1880's, John Hamilton Gillespie traveled from Scotland to the untamed land he called "Sara Sota" with his golf clubs and a vision of what the natural beauty of the area could become.
The traditions of the ancient game of golf pioneered by John Hamilton Gillespie continues today at The Founders Club.
Founders Club, located just east of I-75 off Fruitville Road in Sarasota, is a private traditional golf & country club community combining the venerable traditions of the game with the natural beauty and desirability of Southwest Florida.
Membership in The Founders Golf Club will entitle a privileged few to 18 exhilarating holes of golf designed by famed course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
Set amidst centuries-old oaks, pines and palms, highlighted by a natural buffer of lush, untamed landscape, the par 72 course offers a challenging game. The Founders Club received top awards from the Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association in 2015 including Best Amenities, Best Overall Community, and Best Entranceway.
The Founders Club sits on over 700 acres or verdant Florida flora and fauna, accentuated by 100 acres of picturesque lakes, stands of pines, palms and old oak hammocks above meticulously landscaped streets.
There are only 262 homes in the community and membership in the Founders Golf & Social Club is limited to just 275.
Extensive landscaping and architecturally interesting exteriors justify the home prices rangoing from the $900's to over $5 million
to satisfy the most demanding luxury home buyer.
The clubhouse at the Founders Club is an elegant venue that includes a 24,000 sq.ft. Golf Hall with a dining room, bar and grille, a private dining room and an outdoor terrace. For any event you'd want to hold, business or social, the Founders Club clubhouse will be much more than adequate.
