The pioneering Robert Trent Jones, Jr. has built a golf course design of global renown at The Founders Club. He has sculpted a dramatic and rewarding course, taking cues from the natural landscape to create a playable design amid unsurpassed scenery. The course is unlike any other in Florida.
Limited to 275 golf memberships, The Founders Golf and Social Club provides the privilege of year-round golf with no tee times required. Enhanced by the luxury of Sarasota’s only traditional caddie program and a high-tech, indoor training facility, The Founders Club provides a masterful blend of the classic game of golf.
There is also a well-stocked golf shop with a friendly, professional staff and fully equipped men’s and women’s locker facilities with generous lounge areas.
The Founders Club is not all about golf. Its members can enjoy an exhilarating workout in the Club’s fitness facility, or choose from a variety of fitness classes, including Pilates and Yoga. The outdoor sports area includes basketball, sand volleyball, and Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as a picnic pavilion for a peaceful lunch after a stroll with friends on the miles of pavered walkways found in this scenic setting.
For golfers and non-golfers alike, The Founders Golf and Social Club offers superior amenities in a classically elegant clubhouse. The grand, 24,000-square-foot Golf Hall includes a fine dining room, bar and grille, private dining room and outdoor verandah overlooking an oak hammock and the 18th green. The Club’s professional staff manages a full calendar of social, sport and wellness activities. If you’re in the mood to learn something new, members can always join a card club or a dance or cooking class.
