The Founders Club Shines as Best Overall Community in the 2015 Parade of Homes

With 700 acres of lush landscape, nature preserves, and glistening lakes, a growing number of amenities, and beautiful luxury custom homes, it’s no wonder that The Founders Club was awarded Best Overall Community during the 2015 Parade of Homes, among other top awards.

The Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association visited five new-home communities and 93 model homes during the 16-day Parade of Homes event and The Founders Club caught the eyes of the judges as the best community with between 201-500 home sites. Nestled amongst the 700 lush acres is room for no more than 262 homes with over-sized home sites and gorgeous views of golf, preserve, or lakes.

Luxury Amenities at our Sarasota Golf Community

Aside from the intimate neighborhoods and abundant natural beauty, The Founders Club was also recognized for Best Entranceway and Best Amenities. Topping the list of luxury amenities is a Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed golf course, a fitness facility offering a variety of classes, and the grand, 24,000 square foot Golf Hall. The golf course features training facilities, including two putting greens, a short game area, and state-of-the-art TrackMan radar technology offered through Florida Golf Performance Center. Recently, The Founders Club improved upon this amenity with an enhanced driving range and Florida-friendly Celebration grass. Membership is limited to 275 to ensure members enjoy year-round golf with no tee time required and the program also features the area’s only traditional caddie program.

At the 24,000-square-foot Golf Hall overlooking an oak hammock and the 18th hole, members can enjoy fine and casual dining, as well as a full calendar of social, sport, and wellness activities. The recent addition of executive chef Mark Traugutt ensures every member and guest will be treated to the freshest and finest food available. The facility also has a professionally staffed and fully stocked golf pro shop, state-of-the-art fitness center, and men’s and women’s locker rooms and lounges.


The last recognition received by The Founders Club was for Best Floor Plan, awarded to them for their new, fully-furnished Clara model home. The three-bedroom, three- and one-half-bath golf course home has 3,248 square feet under air adorned with dark wood accents, and soft blue and green accents, fabrics, and accessories. Priced at $1,384,900, the Clara takes full advantage of its golf and preserve view with an outdoor living area equipped with a sparkling pool and spa. View the Clara with London Bay Homes’ model walk-through or by scheduling a private tour.
