Best Golf Courses for Women in Sarasota

Sarasota Women Golf Course Communities

The Sarasota/Bradenton area is widely known for being a golf enthusiast’s paradise with several world-renowned courses designed by veteran architects, and numerous organizations dedicated to golf. Many of these organizations are dedicated to promoting both men’s and women’s golf, and they hold regular events, social meetings and men and women golf competitions. Female golfers will find that Sarasota is a perfect place to improve their golf game throughout the year and become active in a vibrant local golf community.

Beautiful, exclusive golf communities with women’s golf training

Some of the top golf communities in Florida are located in the Sarasota/Bradenton/Lakewood area such as Tara Golf and Country Club, TPC Prestancia, The Founders Club, River Strand Golf and Country Club and many others. Many of the courses in these communities were designed by world leading golf course designers, however they are still very playable for both men and women and people of all skill levels.

Purchasing golf real estate in these communities often comes with a membership at these courses, and members are often eligible for exclusive benefits like golf lessons from course pros, tournaments, social programs, practice facilities and more. Memberships can often be purchased without requiring property ownership. Memberships for these golf courses are usually extended to spouses and children with no charge or a small extra charge.
