Head Golf Professional, Lakewood Ranch

Lakewood Ranch, FL

Facility Information

Rosedale Golf & Country Club is consistently recognized as the "Best Place to Play" in the Lakewood Ranch and Greater Sarasota/Bradenton area. From our picturesque beauty to our truly enjoyable social activities, Rosedale allows its Members and Guests to indulge in a truly exceptional lifestyle.

Conveniently located off of I-75 (Exit 217E) and SR70, public tee times are available as well as limited membership opportunities to fit any lifestyle. Come enjoy our wonderful amenities as our guest for the day or stay for a lifetime as one of our cherished members.

Winding its way among sparkling lakes and woodlands, the 18-hole championship golf course offers both challenge and breathtaking scenery to the lucky few who come to call Rosedale home. Noted golf course architect Ted McAnlis, a former Fazio team member, has succeeded brilliantly in his quest to keep the surroundings intact, imaginatively weaving fairways and greens through existing Florida forest. While water and sand come frequently into play, some say the setting itself is the greatest pleasure of all. There's an 8-acre driving range for the required time on the practice tee, and a chipping and putting green for fine tuning strokes.
