Tara is a private golf club and bundled community. Membership is equity-owned and is attached to property deeds and remains with the property.
In 1998, the Tara Development Project was begun by Tara-Manatee, Inc., a division of Power Corporation – Naples, Florida. The 1,100-acre site would consist of a golf course, residential homes, retail, and commercial properties. Tara Golf & Country Club was the first stage of development, including single-family homes, veranda-style condos, multi-story terrace condos with elevator access, and paired villas. Country Club membership would be mandatory and included with the lot or parcel.
