    • Because life should be enjoyed by land as well as by sea, the Club offers its members golf privileges at the beautiful Laurel Oak Country Club, and historic Sara Bay Country Club. Sara Bay’s 18-hole course was designed in 1925 by the dean of golf course architects, Donald Ross, on a choice piece of land near Sarasota Bay that includes undulating terrain, native trees, and a meandering creek. Ross is credited with approximately 400 designs throughout the world. Upon completion of Sara Bay, Ross stated that he had accomplished as much in this design as any of his masterworks in America and Europe. At Laurel Oak you will encounter two of the most challenging courses in Sarasota — one designed by Gary Player and the other by Rees Jones. Each club also offers a myriad of other activities available to Club members who choose to go a bit inland for dining, tennis or fun.
