Club History

The development of Heritage Oaks Golf and Country Club began in the mid-1990s on 500 acres of land east of I-75 on the Bee Ridge Extension in Sarasota, Florida. Secluded in three nature preserves and surrounded by 25 lakes, this gated property has all the peaceful serenity nature offers, yet is only minutes to numerous shopping centers, beaches, theater, and art. Wildlife abounds throughout our community.  Deer run and play, Sandhill cranes nest and raise their young, and a large number of tropical birds are present throughout our community. We were recently recognized as a Certified Audubon Society Sanctuary.  Within minutes from Heritage Oaks is Siesta Key, whose white sand beach has been named the number one beach in the USA numerous times by national travel organizations and Dr. Beach.

In 1996 development of a 18-hole golf course began, as well as the building of an 18,000 square foot clubhouse that would become the center of the social interaction of its members, giving the residents opportunities to build many new friendships.  On March 4, 2005, Heritage Oaks was transferred from the developer to the owners thus becoming a 100% resident-owned and governed Golf and Country Club. First class amenities have continued to be updated and modernized throughout the years, including dining, fitness, tennis, and pools, with the latest being a fully renovated golf course in 2017.  We invite you to discover the pleasures and privileges of membership and ownership at Heritage Oaks Golf And Country Club, a private country club community set in the heart of the Sun Coast.
