The Founders Club

The Founders Club

The Founders Club is a private, traditional Golf and Social Club Community that expresses and encourages communion with nature, camaraderie among neighbors, and connection to the timeless traditions of Scottish links golf.

The Founders Club is nestled amid 700 acres of verdant natural landscape on the outskirts of Sarasota, Florida – the renowned cultural and vacation destination on Florida’s West Coast. The area’s world-famous Gulf beaches and keys, its sophisticated arts, culture, spa and dining scenes are just a short distance from the elegant custom homes of The Founders Club.

Within the walls of this private gated community, The Founders Club weaves a rich tapestry of heritage, elegance and convenience into a lifestyle as captivating as the storied history that inspired its name.
