Nike International Friendlies Tournament at Premier Sports Campus, Lakewood Ranch
To the growing list of amenities that make Southwest Florida such an irresistible place to be—including our internationally-acclaimed beaches and cultural scene—we can add sports as yet another calling card that attracts tens of thousands of annual visitors to the region.
On the face of it, sports tourism is hardly new to an area that has officially hosted spring training baseball for the better part of the last 88 years; and whose warmth and year-round sunshine routinely attracts golfers, fishermen and all manner of recreational enthusiasts.

Just a few years ago East Manatee was considered beautiful but definitely off the beaten track. The development of the I-75 corridor has changed all that. Now this area of old Florida farms and ranches has become one of the fastest growing parts of the state. And while new planned communities dot the landscape, the giant oaks and pine groves remind us of the area’s historic past.
Some of the new communities in East Manatee are among the most luxurious in Florida. The lavish Concession Golf Club boasts world class dinning and was rated “Best New Course” by Golf Digest. Greyhawk Landing is family oriented, with a resort-style clubhouse and a pool that kids love. Waterlefe and Heritage Harbor – both gated – feature golf and tennis. Other communities include the River Club, Greenfield, Mill Creek – each with its own special flavor.
Well-manicured fairways adorn Village Green's golf course.
