Tara Golf & Country Club

Tara Golf and Country Club is located in Southeast Bradenton, approximately 1 mile west of I-75 on State Road 70.  The mostly non-gated, deed restricted  community consists of 16 smaller communities of condominiums, villas, townhomes and single family homes built from the late 1980’s to early 2000’s.  They range in price from $85,000 to $300,000.

The community is nicely located for easy access to many amenities.  Whether you are a traveler, snow bird or are expecting many guests, it is always nice to be close to our airports.  Tara is approximately a 1 hour drive to the Tampa International Airport and quick 15 minute drive to the Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport. For local beach visits, a little over 20 minute drive gets you to the award winning Siesta Key Beach, Anna Maria Island Beaches or beautiful Lido Beach.

The community of Tara Golf and Country Club (www.taragcc.com) is considered a “bundled community”, meaning the property owners are members of the country club and collectively own the common property, including the private country club.  Membership is required and transfers with the sale of the property.  All properties either have membership or are eligible to purchase club membership, if available.

The community is in the district of Tara Elementary, Braden River Middle and Braden River High Schools.  Both Elementary and Middle schools consistently receive an A grade from the State of Florida, with the High School coming in with a consistent B grade.  There are a few great private schools in the area as well.

The facilities of Tara Golf and Country Club recently underwent a complete renovation in 2009, for a total of $7.5 million dollars!  The renovation included both restaurants, Scarlett’s Restaurant and The Grille Room, the club house, as well as the Ted McAnlis designed, 120 acre golf course.  Additional amenities on property include, a driving range, putting green, pro-shop, state of the art fitness center, two tennis courts and heated swimming pool.

The club offers two types of membership, Class A full membership, which provides access to golf and all the other amenities the club has to offer, and Class B Social Membership, which provides access to clubhouse, pool, tennis, fitness center and limited golf at guest rates.  By local standards, the rates for these memberships are very reasonable.  Class A Membership requires a $3041 initial capital contribution and is currently $4380 per year or $365 per month.  The Class B membership requires a $1014 one time capital contribution and is $1632 per year or $162 per month.  Members are also required to pay the Tara Master Association fee of $489.47 per year, as well as an annual dining minimum of $720.

Note:  Rates are according to Tara Golf & Country Club schedule of fees at www.taragcc.com and are subject to change.  Please have your agent verify before purchase.
