Golfing in Avon Park - River Greens, a hidden Gem

Real Estate Agent with Advantage Realty #1

Nestled away between Lake Damon and Trout Lake lies one of Avon Park's prestine golfing communities; River Greens. Originally purchased as a 9-hole course in 1969 by the Davis Family from Coshocton County, Ohio, River Greens has gone through quite a few changes throughout the years. After adding 9 additional holes in 1974, River Greens will celebrate its 30th year in business in the fall of 2009. The Clubhouse (below) houses the Pro-Shop and The Plantation Restaurant, which is also available for weddings, parties and other special events.

River Greens is a friendly community, neighbors are never too busy for a quick chat. Upon entering the community, you will pass Casa Del Lago to the left. The mediterranean style development appeals through its private courtyards and beautiful landscaping. Drive a little slower as you will be sharing the roads with an occassional golf cart. There's no need for speeding anyway - how else would you take in the beautiful views of the golf course and the two lakes?

Homes are arranged so that nearly all residents have either a wonderful view of one of the lakes or the golf course. Buyers might have a hard time chosing which they like best. Whether you are looking for a luxorious lake front estate or are happy with a more conventional home, River Greens has something for everyone in every style and almost every price range.

It is indeed. Been out there just this morning. I'm not much into golfing but there's something soothing and relaxing about watching people outside on the green, going about their game.....
