Legends at Tatum Ridge in Sarasota is a gated community that stands out thanks to its unique course design and great real estate. Located just south of Lakewood Ranch and east of I-75, Legends of Tatum Ridge offers spacious single-family residences built on an intimate, maintenance-free setting.
Development of this neighborhood dates back to the early years of the 21st century, a time when golf communities were in very high demand across Sarasota. In an effort to stand out from other golf and country clubs, the Tatum Ridge Golf Links were designed in the Scottish style, which means that players can enjoy friendly rounds with a nice mix of fairways, technical challenges and plenty of nature to enjoy along the way. The course itself opened in 1994, but its popularity peaked when the gated community broke ground in the year 2000.
