Pennbrooke Fairways Overview
Pennbrooke Fairways was initially established as a manufactured and mobile home community until Florida Lifestyle Community acquired the property in the 1990s. The developer expanded the 538-acre area to include many styles of site-built residences, attached as well as detached, and completed all 1200 sites by 2004. Homes in this resident-owned neighborhood are built around small lakes, conservation areas, and the three 9-hole executive golf courses.
In addition to golf, residents of this gated community enjoy two clubhouses, two solar pools, an on-site restaurant and over 100 special interest groups and clubs. Pennbrooke Fairways also employs a full-time activities director.
