Our team recently represented a wonderful couple from Manhattan who found us through our web site http://www.jamesbrothers.com/. The husband was looking for a full service, high end

Sarasota golf course community while the wife…although not completely uninterested in golf…was looking

for social activities outside of the sport. We just went under contract for a beautiful home on Sugar Mill Drive in Oaks I…that portion of The Oaks that sits west of the club, close to the bay.

One of the reasons this gentleman chose The Oaks was for their reciprocal policy. So I thought it was important enough to mention in my blog. Unlike some other high end courses in and around town ( i.e. The Founders, The Concession, and The Ritz Carlton ) The Oaks offers

reciprocal playing rights at 17 other golf courses during the summer months of May to October.

That’s right. For no extra charge ( except cart fee ) a member of The Oaks can go play…to name a few…Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Laurel Oak, Longboat Key Club, Sara Bay, Venice and

TPC Prestancia. Conversley, any member of these courses can come and play The Oaks…again, free of charge. Call or e-mail me for a list of the other 10 participating clubs.
