Golfing and Fishing in the Same Neighborhood?

In recent years, the Sarasota area has become well known for our beautiful white sand beaches and calm Gulf waters. Specifically, Siesta Key Beach has been named #1 beach in the USA for the second time in the last five years. But there is more to the area than powdery white sand beaches and crystal clear blue water.

Golfing & Fishing

Golfing, fishing and water sports are equally as popular. When deciding where to purchase a home in Sarasota, many people choose between living on the water or in a country club community.

How many communities do you think we have on the mainland in the Sarasota area where you can play golf and fish in Sarasota Bay?


There are many gated communities that feature some amazing golf and country club facilities like The Founders Club and Prestancia, just to name a few. However, the Oaks Bayside offers something that no other country club community can; it is the only one that is set along the tranquil banks of Little Sarasota Bay.

So fish, launch your kayak or even bring your boat in on the day dock. This one-of-a-kind location offers residents an amazing country club community featuring two championship style golf courses, tennis facility, fitness center, swimming pool, croquet, beautiful clubhouse and access to Sarasota Bay.

The Oaks

The Oaks is comprised of three established neighborhoods sited on 1,000 acres just south of Sarasota. Two of them sit directly on Little Sarasota Bay. Residents can fish; launch their kayak or paddleboard directly on the bay. For those wanting a good workout or day adventure, an amazing beach is accessible only from the water just west of the Oaks Bayside.

There is even a community day dock for docking motorized boats for a few hours. So shake off those perceptions of the typical gated golf course community and explore Oaks Bayside. You just may find something special.
