    Large community with large clubhouse. Some homes could use updating, however most floor plans are nice and open.

    Gary and I moved here a few years ago and really like it. The location is nice because it's quiet and private but still close to all the things you need often like shopping and restaurants. We've got all the amenities we could ever need here, the golf course is nice and the clubhouse offers something for everyone. I'd say some of the facilities could use some updating, but overall, the community is well maintained. The people here are friendly and there are tons of different activities.
