SARASOTA, Fla. – The Lake Club at Lakewood Ranch and three of its builders won an impressive eight total Aurora Awards at the 2007 Southeast Building Conference in Orlando.

It is nice to be recognized by our peers for our success.”   The Lake Club is the newest residential Village at Lakewood Ranch, the award-winning 8,500-acre master-planned community located in Sarasota and Manatee Counties on the West Coast of Florida.
