Picture is taken from behind a woman golfer who is standing and watching a man in a red shirt and white shorts hitting a golf ball out of a sand trap, and sand is blowing up as he hits the ballIf you’re an avid golfer or you’ve been planning to take up the game when you retire, you probably don’t need a lot of convincing to seek out a Florida golf community as the best place to spend your golden years. However, even if you don’t play golf, there are many benefits of living in a golf community that you may not have thought about. Here are a few of them:

Sweeping Vistas Teeming with Wildlife

Golfers aren’t the only ones who enjoy the ample green spaces afforded by a meticulously maintained golf course. The rolling terrain, water hazards, and carefully cultivated turf that make up a professionally designed golf course also provide attractive areas for roaming wildlife and birds. A golf course in a 55+ community provides top-notch opportunities for relaxing nature walks that you can enjoy on your own or with neighbors, right in your own backyard.

Dining & Get-Together Opportunities

When you relocate to one of the Central Florida golf communities managed by Blair Group, you’ll also enjoy the benefits of making new friends and participating in numerous planned activities that revolve around the golf course, clubhouse, or dining area. We operate five resort-style communities for adults 55 and older, including one with our own private championship golf course and restaurant, and another that features a golf course and country club right next door. Here’s a brief description of each:

  • Cypress Lakes® – This gated community, ideally located in Lakeland between Tampa and Orlando, features a 36-hole golf course, a multimillion-dollar clubhouse, beach-style-entry pool, and luxury manufactured homes in a neighborhood setting surrounded by nature’s beauty.
  • Bear Creek – This community just outside Daytona Beach offers an idyllic natural setting for wildlife-watchers, as well as three resort-style clubhouses and pools. It’s adjacent to a privately owned golf course and restaurant that our residents can access by golf cart. As an added perk, the Atlantic Ocean is only about 5 miles away, providing many miles of beautiful beaches to explore.Would you prefer to live close to one of the nation’s largest casinos, so you can easily spend time there when you’re not on the golf course? StrawBerry Ridge in Valrico, just east of Tampa, may be the perfect community for you. This community is only a short drive from Diamond Hill Golf Club, a semi-private golf facility that offers memberships as well as tee times to the public. Diamond Hill is a popular destination for many of the golfing aficionados who live in this community. Plus, thanks to its close proximity to Tampa, StrawBerry Ridge is a hotspot for active older adults who want to continue working full or part time in their retirement.

    We also have beautiful, professionally managed 55+ communities near Orlando and The Villages, and there are plenty of golf courses to explore nearby. All of our communities offer clubhouse and pool amenities, as well as other facilities that can help you stay fit and socially connected to your neighbors. No matter which of our resort-style communities you choose, you’ll enjoy a terrific Central Florida location that will put you within an easy driving distance of theme parks, professional sports venues, wilderness areas, and sightseeing destinations that draw tourists from across the globe. Plus, as experts in developing communities for active adults 55 and older, Blair Group makes sure all residents of our communities have convenient access to first-rate medical centers and other vital services.
