Plantation real estate

Superlatives will be unavoidable in a review of the possible real estate investments in the Plantation Golf and Country Club in Venice, Florida.

These acclaims are rightfully deserved. For more than a quarter of a century now, the Plantation has successfully developed its 1,300-acre property into an enclave with superb amenities and services to its members. This thrust clearly manifests the mission statement of the country club that seeks to enhance the membership value of its programs and facilities.

Plantation Golf Courses

Plantation real estate

Some feline grace is lent to the Plantation’s two 18-hole golf courses, the Panther and the Bobcat. These layouts were designed by a master course architect, Ron Garl, who did a splendid job in creating links suited for players of all skill levels. Splendor is written all over the courses’ greens and fairways that blend seamlessly into a lush nature preserve teeming with fountain-sprayed lakes.

These courses which opened in 1980 underwent a renovation recently, boosted further by the genius of another revered course designer, Stephen Kay. His work covered the adoption of the latest course irrigation system and a redesign of the bunkers.

Play at the Bobcat involves a tour of 6,840 yards from its longest tees and tackling a course rating of 73 and a slope rating of 130 on Bermuda grass. The Panther, on the other hand, is a bit tamer at 6,311 yards from its farthest tee placements, a course rating of 70.7 and a slope rating of 70.7.

The types of memberships at the Plantation vary according to specific privileges which are categorized into Full Golf, Golf, Tennis, and Social. For a relatively low $2,000 initiation fee, associate memberships for Family Full and Family Golf are likewise on offer.
