sarasota-photo_400Sarasota is definitely a "Florida golf town." If you’re looking for a Florida golf course community, Sarasota is the right place to look. You’ll find dozens of golf course communities and more than 80 public and private golf courses in the Sarasota, Bradenton and Venice area.

Whether you enjoy golf as a competitive sport or you're just looking for a "home course" for your game, Sarasota and Manatee County area golf courses will surely meet your needs and desires.  There are Island golf course communities like those on Longboat Key and Anna Maria where you can play golf practically in your front yard while your yacht rests on its mooring in your backyard.  There are golf courses for every level of play and golf course communities with amenities from the relatively simple to the most elegant. Golf communities like The Oaks, University ParkFounders Club, Lakewood Ranch, and Waterlefe, among others, offer their residents outstanding amenities featuring professionally designed golf courses, resort swimming pools and Har-Tru tennis facilities.  Many of these clubs also have fitness centers and fine dining.

Those who would tell you that Sarasota doesn’t rank with Orlando or Miami as a golf destination miss the point.  Sarasota offers something that those cities can’t, a fuller and richer, yet still casual, total lifestyle.  With some of the whitest, softest beaches in the world, an eclectic mix of casual and fine dining and renowned international shopping at places like St Armands Circle, Sarasota is truly unique. Sarasota is also "Florida's Cultural Coast," home to the Florida West Coast Symphony, the Sarasota Ballet, Asolo Theater for the Performing arts and the Ringling Museum.  Sarasota area keys, including Longboat, Lido, Siesta, and Casey Key as well as a number of local marinas offer boating, sailing and fishing facilities to match every desire. Sarasota area health care facilities, including Sarasota Memorial, the second largest acute care hospital in the state of Florida, are top rated.  And, there is so much going on in Sarasota to keep residents of all ages engaged, active and happy that one local organization touts the area as a "Silicon Valley for the Aging."

Sarasota, Florida has been described as a mid-sized city with a big-city lifestyle. Forbes Magazine said Sarasota is one of the best places for business and careers. Money Magazine says Sarasota is the nation's best small city and one of the cities with the best health care.  CNBC named Sarasota as “a best place to retire” and named Sarasota the best place for retirees. Regardless of your age, the Sarasota metropolitan area stands alone as the perfect place for you to own a first or second home.  Plan a visit soon and contact me at 941-232-4053 so we can talk about your Sarasota real estate needs.
