The Concession Real Estate

Chasing a dimpled ball is certainly the heart of The Concession Golf Club. Nevertheless, there are many other reasons why this gated golf community in Sarasota, Florida, is a premium option for a golf club membership and real estate investment. Quite possibly the finest 18 holes of golf in Western Florida, this is where the pros practice. No expense was spared in the construction of this Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course.

The Concession enjoys a location which lies east of Lakewood Ranch in Manatee County. The Concession is just three miles east of Interstate 75 and less than hour away from Tampa Bay on the Florida Gulf Coast.

Several club membership categories tailor-fit to varying needs and preferences. Among these is a Corporate Membership which is great to have for companies or business people with clients to entertain. Other membership types include:

  • Full membership — reserved for residents or property owners in The Concession
  • Invitational membership — membership level for non-residents
  • Young professional membership — individual gateway for those below forty-four years of age
  • National membership — allotted for those who have no residences, properties, or rent more than 28 days in the counties of Sarasota, Charlotte, Hillsborough, Manatee, Hardee, Pinellas, Desoto, or Polk
  • International membership — granted to those who don’t own or rent real property for more than 28 days in the US and Canada

The focus for social activities at The Concession is its magnificent 33,000 square-foot club house with spacious verandahs. Its facilities include well-appointed areas for dining, card games and billiards, a private grill room, and luxurious locker rooms. There’s a separate sports club house with an outdoor pool, spa, fitness center, and tennis courts.

Jack Nicklaus’ Touch

The golf course that is the main attraction at The Concession was built on a 520-acre site of pristine natural Florida woodlands. The towering pines and large oaks of the previously undeveloped land were meticulously preserved as the greens and fairways rose out of the layout designed by no less than the legendary Jack Nicklaus with assistance from Tony Jacklin. Soon after the opening of the links, it was cited as the “Best New Private Course of 2006” by Golf Digest magazine.

The 18-hole, par 72 championship course features 7.479 yards of relaxed, uninterrupted golf against a backdrop of breathtaking vistas and scenic water features with the highest slope rating of any championship level course. No interior roads cross the layout and only a few rooflines of homes in The Concession’s community are visible. Challenge is amply provided by the course’s high slope rating and by ball-grabbing sand traps.

A fitting complement to the course is a 23-acre wide practice area featuring a 10,000-square-foot putting green and a 14,000-square-foot chipping green. Further, the practice area has a double-sided driving range for golfers to perfect their skills before taking on the golf course’s challenge. These facilities are so superb that Golf Digest counted it as one of the “75 Best Practice Areas in the US.”

The Concession Real Estate

The Concession is one of the newest golf communities in the Sarasota–Bradenton area. Hence, its inventory of available completed homes for sale is slim. The property, including the 520-acre golf course, has a total land area of 1,200 acres distinctive for its towering ancient trees and wetlands; a stream also runs within.

Available home sites in this private, gated community number at only 255 with sizes between half-acre and one acre. There are vacant lots available including great choices from bank-owned properties that can be acquired with significant discounts. Listed prices for these lots can range from the $100s to the $1 million level. There are plenty of home builders in Florida which can competently build homes for lot buyers at The Concession. Among them are Landmark Development, ML Collingwood, Pruett Builders, and John Cannon Homes.

For those who would prefer completed homes, a sales listing can be rather short. Nonetheless, what can be found are residences with distinctive designs with asking prices from the $1 million to the $6 million level, and floor areas of around 4,500–11,500 square feet.

Fantastic real estate options indeed are within grasp at The Concession. Its club amenities and golf courses are among Florida’s best.
