Last week’s blog outlined some of the terrific summer golf memberships available in and around the Sarasota-Bradenton-Venice areas. This week a fabulous new offer emerged. For $650, one can join the Talbot Club from May 1 to October 31.. This expands the concept in that you can join four clubs, not one….and bring guests. These are all private clubs, not semi- private. The other difference is that a modest per round fee is associated with each visit, but it does include cart fees. The four clubs are…The Founders Club ( $40 / $75 per guest ), Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club ( $38 / $80 per guest ), Sara Bay Country Club ( $38 / $53 per guest ) and TPC Prestancia ( $38 / $55 per guest ). This is a fabulous way to familiarize yourself with each course, its amenities and its members. More at
