Sarasota County Information

The Venice Golf and Country Club is located within the geographical boundaries of Sarasota County. Although we have a Venice, FL mailing address, our community is not within the city limits of Venice; therefore, our local governing body is the Board of County Commissioners.

Our VGCC employees contribute so much to the quality of our lives, please help us contribute to the quality of theirs. If you have gently used household items that you are discarding, please consider donating them through our Helping Helpers program. 

Pond Bank Management

To maintain the health of our 27 community ponds, a Pond Management Plan has been adopted based on The Nine Florida-Friendly Landscaping Principles: Right Plant, Right Place; Water Efficiently; Fertilize Appropriately; Mulch; Attract Wildlife; Manage Yard Pests Responsibly; Recycle; Manage Storm Water Runoff; and Protect the Waterfront.

To further assist pond bank stabilization, we have instituted a 3' Low Mow Policy that will reduce the impact of heavy lawn equipment, one of the biggest causes of erosion. To view the policy, click here:


We have also created a document for homeowners to provide to their lawn care professionals, which you may access by clicking here:
