Let us give you 18 reasons to pack your lucky golf shoes.

Registered guests at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota have access to one of the Gulf Coast’s top golf resorts, the award-winning Ritz-Carlton Golf Club located 13 miles from the hotel and offering a Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole championship course. Featuring a par 72 layout, this Lakewood Ranch golf course has been strategically sculpted by moving nearly 1.9 million cubic yards of earth to create elevation, relief, contouring and framing for each hole in a manner that gracefully rolls among the 12 picturesque lakes and extensive landscape to form a fair and memorable test of golf.
