About The Concession Golf Club
The seed of what would become The Concession Golf Club was planted in 1969, with Jack Nicklaus’ famous gesture of conceding the final putt in the Ryder Cup to Tony Jacklin, clinching the first tie in the competition’s history. Decades later, the two golf legends paired up to design and create The Concession Golf Club in the Lakewood Ranch section of Manatee County. From the beginning, The Concession was designed to be different — a championship, privately-owned golf facility with no houses lining the course. The goal was to create a course where tournament conditions were the norm and the natural setting is the star. More than a decade later, the course has evolved, but the setting remains unchanged in its natural splendor, which has been the setting for prestigious events such as the WGC Workday Championship, NCAA Division I Championships, and the biennial Concession Cup.
