Three golf clubs, Prestancia Golf and Country Club, Country Club of Sarasota and The Oaks Club are located on the grounds of Palmer Ranch. An active community, there are year-round events planned for residents and visitors, including an enormous Spring Fest and its kick-off road race. Children from everywhere are invited to this event that features educational displays and hands-on learning opportunities, as well as fun, games and food.

    In addition to the wide variety of residential choices, Palmer Ranch also contains several on-site continuing care retirement facilities. On the opposite end of the life spectrum, a new concept ‘Imagine School” on Palmer Ranch offers charter school education for preschool through middle school students.

    The largest master planned community in Sarasota real estate is Palmer Ranch, named for one of the area’s earliest residents Bertha Honore Palmer of the Palmer House Hotel family from Chicago. Mrs. Potter Palmer arrived in Sarasota in February 1910, after the death of her husband. She lived at Spanish Point and managed a huge tract of ranch land in what is now south Sarasota County. At this time there were 850 men, women and children living in Sarasota. Mrs. Palmer became known as “the Queen of Sarasota,” but her reign was short-lived. She died eight years later in 1918, but left a lasting family legacy. Her property was left to her two sons, Honore and Potter, Jr.
