Championship Golf by Which All Other Vacations are Measured 

Imagine a golf course where velvet greens gently undulate around 12 shimmering lakes. Where each of the 18 holes is expertly framed to be both challenging and rewarding. Where the only thing more beautiful than the game at hand is the surrounding view. With this in your mind’s eye, you have The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Sarasota.

Designed by Tom Fazio, the golf course resides 13 miles away from the resort at Lakewood Ranch. Play this par-72 course, and you will see why no golf vacation will ever be the same.
