Sarasota has only one bundled golf community…Heritage Oaks. Meaning, when you buy a home the membership goes with the home. You pay a one time capital contribution of $3,500 when you close on a property, then just regular membership dues like any other private course. The beauty is this…all 800+ homes = 800+ memberships. Everyone pays the same amount…whether you live in a Single Family home, a Golf Villa, a Club home or one of the Verandas. Equal membership.
The course was recently redone in 2006 by well known architect Ron Garl ( University Park Country Club, Longboat Key Golf Club). Four Har-Tru tennis courts are lit for night play, and the clubhouse has undergone some serious, and impressive, renovations. A full time fitness director keeps everyone on the go in addition to over 2 miles of walking paths that weave around and within this gated community.
Renters and guests of owners are also allowed to use the golf, tennis and fitness facilities. One need only register with the administration office, pay $200 in high season and $50 in the summer and you are good to go.
Very economical sunshine living with Veranda’s in the low $100,000’s and Single Family homes in the $300,000’s.
