1. Re: golf/shopping

The outlet mall in the area is in Ellenton located off I-75. It is about 20 minutes from Sarasota.

If you want golf,tennis, beach, nice accomodations and shopping/dining fairly closeby, I would recommend the Longboat Key Club on Longboat Key.

You can read reviews under the "Hotel" heading on the Longboat Key TA page.

There are many options, if that isn't what you'd like.

Longboat Key Club is highly rated; it has two golf courses directly on its property. Another option is Ritz-Carlton which has access (via van) to a private course, as well as a Beach Club and other amenities.
