Left my home club The Founders for a round at Palm Aire Country Club with three friends I met at University Park. Played The Lakes…a little over 6000 yards from the whites but can stretch to 6,443 from the blues and 6,698 from the gold tips. Good condition, good speed of play. The Champions course is a better test I’m told…over 7000 yards from the back tees. This is a mid level golf course community but interesting enough for the price and a challenge for any level of play.

     There is a currently a “Try Us Out” membership…60 days for $1000…refundable should you join. A full golf membership for the family is $1000 in equity plus a $1,500 membership fee. Monthly’s will cost an additional $575, and an annual food and beverage bill of $900 is easy to use up. The current incentive is free carts for the first year, 50% off the equity and 50% off the membership fee…if you join before year end.

     Nicely situated just off University Park, this community boasts every living style…two story condo’s, semi-detached garden homes, villa’s and single family homes. Nothing in the high end, however. Anywhere from the $90’s to the upper $600’s. Again, this is a very accessible, mid level, friendly golf course community. One of the first five courses to be built in Sarasota. For more on the membership or property options, give me a call.
