Country Club East in Lakewood Ranch is a fully Golf Cart Friendly Sarasota Golf Course Community

I recently spent some extensive time in Lakewood Ranch (LWR) in the last two weeks with two separate clients. Both looking for new golf course homes up to a million. A perfect place to look is Lakewood Ranch as it is our newest, most amenity rich sport’s minded neighborhood in all of Sarasota/ Manatee and arguably in all of the Gulf Coast. It appeals to young families  { average age 46 } and retirees.

What both couples had in mind was a community that is “golf cart friendly”…meaning they wanted not only to take their cart home to their own garage after their round, but also to the athletic center if need be, or to the clubhouse for a dinner or drink.

Any of you familiar with Lakewood Ranch knows that club membership allows you to do just that. Not only at the two Arnold Palmer designs within The Country Club ( one of the first villages) but also into the brand new course within Country Club East…called Royal Lakes…designed by Rick Robbins. Yes, one membership allows you to play all three courses. And the new clubhouse “The Lodge” is now fully complete and stunning.

Country Club East is now in its second phase of new construction…the first phase is virtually sold out. So you now have a tremendous selection of lots in the newly released section…with your choice of view…golf course, lake, preserve…or maybe a bit of all three!. There are basically five main builders to choose from…Neal Signature Homes, Cardel, WCI, Lee Wetherington and Taylor Morrison.

Give me a call as I have now been through each and every model home they have !! Starting from the $400’s to the multi millions, I know them all.
