This highly exclusive club has two excellent 18 hole courses. The Heron Course was recently redone and focuses on an enjoyable playing experience. The fairways are very narrow, and the greens are large, fast, and have some undulation to them. There are many sand bunkers throughout the course, and water hazards come into play on most holes. The Eagle Course has plush fairways. Water comes into play several times, and the terrain is relatively flat. Designed by Arthur Hills, eight different tee sets offer the golf experience desired for any player. Residents are required to join the club, and while some associate memberships are available, there is a waiting list.
Among the most dramatic homes in Sarasota are those found in The Oaks. Many of Georgian design, homes here are complemented by an idyllic setting with statuesque trees. There are also many McEwen designed homes, which have their own following for architecture. Situated on both the east and west sides of U.S. 41 in Osprey, just south of Sarasota, The Oaks offers an outstanding stretch of coastline and a ten-acre bald eagle sanctuary. Homeowners are invited to join The Oaks Club where they may enjoy championship golf, Har-Tru tennis courts, an oversized pool, croquet and a multi-million dollar clubhouse and new state of the art Wellness Center. Homes as well as high-rise condominiums are available. For inspiration on the Oaks lifestyle have a look at the listings below.
