From high-end golf courses like the Ritz-Carlton Members Club-Sarasota to municipal offerings like the 45-hole Bobby Jones Complex or the Long Boat Key Club Resort, the Sarasota/Bradenton area has something for everyone. It also has one of, if not the best, public beaches in the United States. Lido Beach offers miles of pure white sugary sand against the crystal clear blue green waters of gulf with one of the best climates in the world. Located on the west coast of Florida, just an hour south of Tampa, Sarasota is bustling resort community that offers outstanding resorts, restaurants and water sports. Bradenton, also known for its world-class tennis, doesn't have the beach, but does offer a wide variety of terrific daily-fee golf facilities such as Waterlefe Golf & River Club, Legacy Golf Club and The Preserve Golf Club.
