Sarasota golf course communities – Laurel Oak Golf & Country Club

Laurel Oak Golf & Country Club

Located east of I75 just off of Bee Ridge, this gated 400+ home community boasts two Gary Player designed golf courses. The West course was redesigned in 2005 by famed golf course architect Rees Jones. In fact, every street name in the community is named after a famous golf course architect ! Dick Wilson Drive, Alister Mackenzie Drive, Chick Evans Place etc.

There are currently 19 single family homes for sale in Laurel Oak.  They range in price from $439,000 to $949,000. In the past 6 months, 17 homes have sold. At that rate, basically a 6 month supply remains which is impressive turnover as far as Sarasota County goes. The average home sale in Laurel Oak was $650,000 for 3,519 square feet or roughly $185 per foot.

This is a member owned golf club ( as is The Founders Club, correcting a previous blog oversight ) but owning a home in this community does not require mandatory membership. I personally enjoy playing both layouts where 75% of all homes overlook the two courses. There are 29 lakes in the community, 20 common areas, and over 8 miles of extra wide sidewalks for families to walk and bike side by side. Add in the 45,000 foot clubhouse and the 12 Har Tru tennis courts and this community is a definite must see for those looking to purchase in a beautiful, active golf and tennis community.
