Why Cypress Lakes® Is One of the Best Golf Communities to Retire to in Florida

How do you define the best golf communities to retire to in Florida? Obviously, you’re looking for a retirement community that offers plenty of opportunities for you to play golf. And Cypress Lakes®, with its lovingly landscaped, 36-hole championship golf course, resident golf pro, golf shop, and restaurant, fits that definition to a tee. However, there are many additional factors to consider before you choose a golf community to call home.


For many older adults, finding an affordable way to enjoy all the activities they’ve been looking forward to in retirement has become a real concern. Cypress Lakes® is a community for adults 55 and older that has found a way to make an active Florida lifestyle affordable for many people, even on a retirement budget. We offer safe, comfortable, and often even luxurious manufactured homes for sale in a gated neighborhood setting. These manufactured homes typically cost less than site-built homes in a similar setting. Then, for a low monthly home site lease payment, each of our residents can enjoy resort-style living with daily access to our showcase-worthy clubhouse complex, which includes:

  • Two heated pools and hot tubs
  • A 5,000-square-foot fitness center staffed with a personal trainer
  • A ballroom/auditorium that can seat hundreds of people
  • Game facilities for tennis, pickleball, bocce ball, shuffleboard, and horseshoes
  • And many other amenities to facilitate social events and informal gatherings


Another thing that makes Cypress Lakes® one of the best golf communities to retire to is our ideal location in Lakeland, FL. We’re situated about halfway between Tampa and Orlando, two of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. And we make the most of our enviable location by scheduling group trips to beautiful beaches, historic sites, casinos, sporting events, arts festivals, and more. We also offer cooking, art, and exercise classes. With an activities director on staff and lots of friendly volunteers among our residents, there’s always something to do for everyone at Cypress Lakes®.
