To sports enthusiasts around the globe, the moment Jack Nicklaus conceded the final putt in the 1969 Ryder Cup has endured as one of the greatest acts of sportsmanship in history. Simply referred to as “the concession,” Jack Nicklaus’ gracious act towards fellow competitor Tony Jacklin resulted in the first tie in Ryder Cup history.
In 2004, Nicklaus and Jacklin set out to find the perfect piece of land for a championship golf course. What they found was a 1200 acre setting full of wildlife minutes from downtown Sarasota, perfect for the Concession Golf Club and Concession Residences.
The inspiration was the moment, the result was just as grand. The Concession Golf Club debuted as Golf Digest’s Best New Private Course in 2006. In 2009, Golfweek named The Concession as the ninth Best Residential Course in the United States.
