A lifestyle change is ending a drought of more than 15 years in new golf course construction in Northeast Florida.

“Active adult” communities, which are subdivisions targeted at homeowners 55 years old and older, provide what has been called a cruise ship lifestyle in their own neighborhood.

Along Florida 210, west of Cimarrone Golf Club, Stillwater will contain an estimated 550 housing units in St. Johns County, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.

While pricing has not been nailed down, homes are estimated between the mid-$200,000 to the high $400,000 range.

The homes will be accompanied by a 6,000-6,500 yard, 18-hole golf course, a restaurant and other resident amenities including a fitness center, swimming pool, tennis courts and bocce ball and pickleball facilities.

The golf course and clubhouse will be open to the public, but the other amenities will be for resident use only.
