The Bent Tree Country Club in Sarasota is a pioneering residential community in terms of embodying the golf lifestyle. Development began in the 1970s, and the last major renovation took place in 2010. The championship Bent Tree golf course had the distinction of hosting the LPGA tournament for over a decade. It was here where acclaimed player Nancy Lopez scored the most deciding wins of her career: her first ever professional tournament and her 35th victory, a feat that placed her in the Hall of Fame.
Besides its eminent place in professional golf history, the Bent Tree Country Club stands out as being home to some of the most sought-after real estate in Southwest Florida. The Woodlands of Bent Tree features the most generous single family residences. A four-bedroom property built on 3,488 square feet with spectacular lakefront or golf course vistas can be had for $625,000. More modest three-bedroom options built on 1,728 square feet start at about $172,000.
The main amenity is the championship golf course and its legendary 12th and 18th holes. The challenging fairways, gorgeous scenery and reasonable membership fees make Bent Tree one of the most popular courses in the area. The clubhouse lounge offers casual and fine dining. Tennis courts and swimming pools round out the amenities.
The convenient location of the Bent Tree Country Club makes it very attractive to home shoppers. Unlike other golf communities in Sarasota County which are tucked far away from the city centers, Bent Tree is located just east of I-75 and just minutes away from Sarasota Springs, downtown Sarasota, and the world-famous beaches of Siesta Key. The Myakka River State Park is just around the corner for outdoor enjoyment, and the three public schools serving the community are Lakeview Elementary, Sarasota Middle and Sarasota High.
