Lakewood Ranch has been named as one of the 50 best master-planned communities in the country and at the heart of this development rests The Country Club at Lakewood Ranch. Prized for its prestigious location, secure gated entrance, and neighborhoods that center on its prominent Arnold Palmer-designed Legacy Golf Course, the Country Club at Lakewood Ranch exudes elegance and beauty. Picturesque streetscapes, natural splendor, and pristine fairways combine to make every home’s view an enchanting one. Here, homebuyers enjoy luxury and comfort amid an impressive array of dazzling single-family homes.Originally purchased in the early 1900’s by Milwaukee business magnate John Schroeder—and acquired two decades later by the Uihlein family, founders of the Schlitz Brewing Company—the land that now comprises The Country Club at Lakewood Ranch once hosted a successful string of agricultural and shell mining ventures for over a century. Since 1994, the area has become the site for one of the most successful new master-planned communities in all of Florida.
