and the Sara Bay Country Club
One of Bradenton Florida's nicest bayside communities, only minutes from downtown Whitfield Estates offers both waterfront and golf course homes. Established in the 1920's, Whitfield estate was the first Bradenton area golfing community built along the fairways of what is now the Sara Bay Country Club just north of Sarasota, yet actually
located on the southern edge of Manatee County in Bradenton.
It was during the 1920's real estate boom, that Donald Ross, the foremost golf-course architect of the time, designed the golf course for Whitfield Estates Country Club (now known as SaraBay). Famous golfer Bobby Jones was hired to promote sales. Residents of Whitfield Estates & Sara Bay Country club enjoy
close proximity to the attractions of both Sarasota and Bradenton as well as convenient access to the airport.
Members of the SaraBay Country Club enjoy the heritage and camaraderie, as well as an outstanding golf experience. The Sara Bay golf course is very walker-friendly and walking is unrestricted, and, the course is consistently in excellent condition.
Whitfield Estates and Sara Bay feature Mediterranean and Floridian style ranch homes in a wide variety of sizes to meet the needs of young families, young professionals, and active retirees.
This quiet private community offers homes on the golf course in the $150's to the $400's, while homes directly on the canal begin in the low $200's and rise to over $3 million for newer or refurbished bayfront homes.
