Royal Highlands Overview
Royal Highlands by Pringle is an active adult community located among rolling hills in Leesburg, Florida. This world-class golf community sits on just under 1,100 acres, with nearly 35 percent of the land set aside for conservation. The natural preserves are a home to native birds, waterfowl, and other wildlife. There are four lakes on-site where Royal Highlands residents can go fishing and canoeing.
The crown jewel of this gated community is the Monarch golf course, where Royal Highlands residents get preferred rates and tee times. Members of the public are allowed to play with a resident. Beautifully designed around this golf course, Royal Highlands in Leesburg Florida is located close enough to urban conveniences, yet provides serenity in a country setting about ten minutes away from downtown Leesburg. The mild three-season climate and low crime rates of the greater Leesburg area make Royal Highlands a perfect place for Baby Boomers.
Royal Highlands Amenities
Royal Highlands has two clubhouses. Indoor amenities include a fitness center with covered pool, card room, arts and crafts room, library, and billiards. There is a restaurant adjacent to the golf course called The Crown and Shield. The Great Hall has a ballroom, stage, and dance floor and is host to many entertainment acts and community functions.
An outdoor pool is perfect for soaking up the Florida sunshine. Residents at Royal Highlands can also get together for some friendly competition over a game of softball, tennis, bocce ball, or horseshoes on the scenic outdoor courts. There are also picnic areas, which provide easy access to community lakes. The 18-hole, par-72 championship Monarch golf course features picturesque lakes and rolling hills and is a challenging, but fun way to spend part of the day. Multiple tees insure that everyone can play at his or her level.

Royal Highlands Reviews
- Wayne and Linda Heizer (Resident/Homeowner)|August 24, 2017We looked at Pringle communities on recommendations from other folks we knew, starting in 2003. We looked at six areas around Leesburg, settling on a beautiful building lot in Royal Highlands. We moved into a rental home while we watched our own custom designed home being built. We have been in our home since 2005 and we love it. Our home-based, customer-service business is here and our yard is a Florida friendly bird and butterfly paradise. Loads of activities for all levels of involvement. If you are bored here, it's all on you. Come, visit, see, stay!
