Ritz Carlton Membership Club

June 20, 2006

Today I had the pleasure of visiting the beach, hotel and golf amenities at the Ritz-Carlton Members Club here in Sarasota. I must say, the clubs amenities are most impressive. Members of the Ritz Carlton Club will enjoy three distinct clubs which include the Beach Club on Lido Key, the day spa at the Ritz Hotel in downtown Sarasota and the Ritz Carlton Golf Club at Lakewood Ranch.

Three membership types are available; Gold, Platinum, and Premier.

The Gold Membership offers unlimited beach, spa, and social benefits for the whole family and offers six tee-times in season plus unlimited golf privileges throughout the remainder of the year. Gold Membership fees include a refundable deposit of $75,000 and monthly membership dues of $400.00 per month.

The Platinum Membership provides full access to all club amenities plus the added benefit of unlimited golf and preferred tee-time both in and out of season. Platinum Membership fees include a $100,000 refundable deposit plus monthly membership fees of $900.00.

The Premier Membership includes access and enjoyment of all amenities and golf for a total of 30 days throughout the year. This membership is great for part time residents of Sarasota. The Premier Membership fees include a refundable deposit of $125,000 and yearly fee of $1,200.

Memberships are offered to the general public with no purchase of Ritz Carlton real estate offerings required. Additionally, there will be no food and drink minimums or assessments.

The Tom Fazio designed golf course is unique in that there are no homes located on or around the completely private course. By moving an estimated 1.9 million cubic yards of earth, Tom Fazio has designed a course that is unique to Sarasota. Elevation changes are common throughout the courses design with some holes having as much as a 40 foot change in elevation from tee to green. The course appears to have been carved out of the natural surroundings. The high tree lines along the Braden River, which borders the course, provides added relief to this unique landscape. The course is simply beautiful.
