How to Get the Most out of Country Club Living

Building a life less ordinary begins with loving the place you call home. From location to amenities to socializing with neighbors who share your zest for adventure, where you live matters. Find the right community and everything else falls into place.

For those who dream of one vacation-inspired day after another, it’s hard to beat the resort-style luxury of country club living. At Lakewood Ranch in sun-soaked Manatee County, Florida, experiencing the good life comes naturally.

Here are a few simple tips for getting the most out of country club living at Lakewood Ranch.

Never Miss out on a Chance to Socialize

At 8,500 acres with a population of 20,000 people, Lakewood Ranch is one of the top 5 selling master-planned communities in the United States. Featuring art & culture and a wide variety of activities, much of the beauty of living here is the opportunity to meet tons of people who enjoy the same activities and share the same interests.

Making new friends is easy when the place where you live has been expressly designed for building a strong community.

Explore Your Surroundings

With 7 unique villages and a charming “Main Street” themed downtown shopping district, there’s never a reason for two days to look the same.

Discover everything Lakewood Ranch has to offer and you’ll find there’s even more than you imagined.

Make Time to Play

Keep your clubs at the ready and find room in your schedule to hit the links at Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club or private courses set within Neal Signature Homes communities. There’s just something special about living around the corner from your home course.

Stay fit and enjoy more sporty endeavors at the 140-acre Premier Sports Campus.

Grow for the Future

Give your kids a leg up on the competition with award-winning schools. While Lakewood Ranch is a fantastic choice for retirees, it’s also a great place to live for families, too. There’s no reason to wait until your golden years to enjoy the country club lifestyle.
