Best Day Ever
I cannot begin to express how happy I am with our decision to have our wedding at The Founders Club. First of all, the venue is absolutely stunning, the old Florida feel of the golf hall with the large front porch, beautiful landscape and flowers, not to mention the gorgeous golf course, large oak trees, expansive veranda with a fireplace, I could go on and on. In addition to being such a remarkably beautiful location, the staff is so amazing and worked so hard; the service was impeccable. From the time we arrived for hair and makeup to the time we left, the staff was always on top of things and made sure everyone was taken care of. One of the most important things to us was providing our guests with amazing food, drinks, and entertainment. The food was so incredible!! We received numerous compliments on how good it was as well as the service. I also have to express how wonderful Melody, the event manager, is! She was instrumental in making sure our vision was executed perfectly. Thank you to everyone at The Founders Club who helped to make our special day the best day ever!!Sent on 02/17/2020

What a Venue!
Not only was the venue absolutely phenomenal, but the service and staff were instrumental in making our wedding day as perfect as possible. Melody was with us, side-by-side, as she helped to bring our special day to fruition. And anytime we had a question, she was there to answer with tact. CB was also very helpful with both the bride and groom and we couldn’t be more thankful to everyone on the staff! The food was phenomenal! Thanks for making our special day that much better.Sent on 12/18/2019

We had our wedding at The Founders Club on 1/7/17 and everything went perfect! Our coordinator was Ashley and she was wonderful throughout the entire process and very accommodating with our schedules. She was very responsive to our questions and needs throughout the planning process and provided recommendations when we needed them. Our day of weather was not good but Ashley made sure that everything was organized and perfect and that I had nothing to worry about.Sent on 01/26/2017
The venue itself is absolutely beautiful, not your typical golf course venue. They have several oak tree sites available for the ceremony which were all beautiful and they have a gorgeous outdoor wood verandah which we held the dancing portion of our wedding on due to rain and it turned out beautifully with the bistro lighting. The menu options were great and pricing was definitely reasonable. I would definitely consider them for your wedding!

The Founder's Club is an absolutely beautiful venue that can accommodate any bride's vision. There are so many options to choose from when setting up the layout. They also take pride in the food they serve and it was delicious! Ashley Kilmer was the best event coordinator to work with. She worked with us for over a year and kept us on track for our timeline and helped us consider all the little details-some things that we had not even thought about.Sent on 11/06/2016

I could not have asked for a better place for our wedding! When we first went there we met with the general manager and you could just tell how accommodating they are there. The service you receive it just amazing! After we booked the place they got a wedding coordinator, Marisa, and she was so sweet to work with and had the same attitude as the GM. Everything was perfect on our wedding day! There was not a single hitch. Everything was beautiful and the service was amazing!Sent on 02/26/2013

The moment we entered the club and met the general manager, we knew this was The Place. The General Manager, (Hugh) was extraordinarily helpful, kind, accommodating, instructive....anything you can think of, he was IT. The people in this establishment KNOW what they are doing. The person handling ALL ASPECTS of the event was Tara. She, to my great satisfaction, gave my wife such confidence that all anxiety or pressure that she may have felt, was practically eliminated. When we arrived for our reception, Hugh had taken personal charge during the entire night.Sent on 11/17/2011
If we had to write a movie script for the perfect wedding reception, in our wildest dreams it wouldn't have been this Perfect.

This venue was hands down the best choice I could have made!! We live an hour and a half away and chose this venue over all the others closer to home. The wedding day went smoothly and the night was fabulous. They set everything up and took it all down for us. The food was delicious and we had many guests comment on how surprised they were that the food was so good. Overall, this venue made our wedding the best ever!Sent on 11/28/2016

The Founders Club is a beautiful venue! We chose it to fit our Vintage themed wedding. It has a plantation style feel to it. I immediately fell in love with this venue as soon as I saw it. It was the last one we had looked at and I am so happy we went with it.Sent on 04/05/2017
Ashley the wedding coordinator of the venue was very accommodating to our schedules and was spot on with service. It was a huge help to have someone like Ashley assisting us throughout the entire wedding planning process. She made sure our day went so smoothly with no mishaps.
Highly recommend checking out this venue!

The perfect wedding venue!
My husband and I were so glad we chose The Founders Club for our wedding reception. They were the best choice overall in the Sarasota area for us because they offered the most for the best price. The facility is absolutely beautiful and all of the staff work so hard to make your day perfect. We were planning all the way from northern Illinois and Melody made that a very smooth process by responding to my many emails very quickly, and being extremely accommodating about every request I made! Planning long distance meant we never got a chance to try their food, but we were definitely not disappointed. Everything was absolutely delicious, and when I had a simple idea for one of our main course options, Melody came back with an entire menu that suited us and our guests PERFECTLY! They even set up all of the decor we brought down for us, and made it look much better than I ever imagined! In every aspect, I would 10/10 recommend The Founders Club.Sent on 01/02/2020
