Our Course

A Course Reverently Carved from the Natural Landscape

Course OverviewFollowing the ancient contours of traditional Scottish Links courses, The Founders Golf and Social Club's 18-hole championship course takes its cues from the gently rolling terrain.  Set against a backdrop of centuries-old oaks, pines and palms and highlighted by a natural buffer of lush, untamed landscape, the 7,094-yard, par 72 layout offers a dynamic route along groomed fairways, tranquil lakes and unspoiled wetlands.  Each hole is sculpted in harmony with the natural beauty of the landscape to elevate the challenge and exhilaration of play.  The course is a "core" design, where golfers cross no roads during play and where homes are carefully set back from the field of play. 

Sarasota's only traditional caddie program affords Members the pleasure of walking the course at their leisure. A state-of-the-art teaching facility and golf shop are staffed with a roster of seasoned professionals who help each Member reach for the top of his or her game.
