Located about eight miles east of Downtown, the Founders Club in Sarasota was developed as a pioneering concept in 2005. Within one year of its grand opening, this exclusive neighborhood received accolades as one of the Top 100 golf communities in the United States. The Founders Club sits on 700 acres of pristine Florida land; the developers set aside 90 acres as a nature preserve that these days serves as a wildlife habitat for native species.
The initial goal of the Founders Club developers was to build luxurious golf estates with interiors measuring more than 5,000 square feet. In order to adjust to market conditions in 2010, new developers such as London Bay Homes started building smaller properties that were still very luxurious. These days, only a handful of listings are available at the Founders Club on a monthly basis, and they tend to sell very quickly.
In 2017, pricing at this exclusive community starts under a million dollars for golf estates with four bedrooms and three full bathrooms with more than 3,000 square feet of living space. These are homes built around 2006 and later; they typically feature details such as elaborate foyers, large backyards, lake views, summer kitchens with private pools and sun decks, tray ceilings, media rooms, expansive balconies, and more. Aside from London Bay Homes, other luxury developers include Lee Wetherington and Arthur Rutenberg.
The centerpiece of the Founders Club is the 18-hole golf course, one of the most challenging and scenic in Southwest Florida. The clubhouse features a fitness center, a pro shop, a fine dining hall, and lounge areas. Residents and guests of the Founders Club are treated to one of the most exquisite golf and country club experiences in Sarasota.
The Founders Club is located just south of Fruitville Road and two miles east of I-75. Nearby suburban comforts include the Sarasota Crossings shopping center on the other side of I-75. A Winn Dixie and two farmers markets are even closer.
