The Concession at Lakewood Ranch
The Concession at Lakewood Ranch is a gated community known for its luxurious and exclusive estate homes on homesites beginning at one acre. The Concession has 236 homes – all of which are custom-built, and all feature spectacular lake and preserve views.
The Concession features an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus golf course that was co-designed by Tony Jacklin.
There are four neighborhoods in The Concession – Birkdale, borders The Concession Golf Club; Nicklaus Manor is a small private enclave of 33 half acre homes sites with preserve and lake views. Lindrick, is the newest section of The Concession, and consists of approximately 100 home sites, and finally Birkdale Court – a small enclave of 22 home sites, with most featuring views of one of the many lakes in The Concession.
At the heart of The Concession is the Concession Golf and Country Club. Named “Best New Private Course” by Golf Digest during its opening year in 2006, The Concession was designed in honor of the 1969 Ryder Cup, where Jack Nicklaus conceded a putt to Tony Jacklin. That gesture, known as “the concession,” rendered the two teams in a tie – the first in Ryder Cup history – and became known as one of the greatest acts of sportsmanship ever. Nicklaus and Jacklin teamed to design The Concession, home to some of the best golf in Florida.
The course is regarded as one of the most challenging golf courses in Florida. At 520-acres The Concession features a nature-rich design, full of thought-provoking strategic challenges winding around wetlands, 150-foot pines and 200-year-old oaks, with barely a home in view.
