Sugar Mill Country Club is a section of single-family homes in the Sugar Mills Golf Course. This is only one of several golf course communities in New Smyrna Beach. Being on the outskirts of town is a tranquil place for you and your family to live. It is also a great place to have a dog as there are plenty of places to take dogs for a walk. The atmosphere is tranquil and relaxed, especially with the heavily wooded areas of Daugherty's Todd Grant and Ward Higbees Trope Grant nearby.
The quiet out here is nice, but it does mean that if you want to eat out, buy dog food, or go shopping for just about anything you could possibly need, you have no choice but to drive. Fortunately, there isn't much you can't drive to that isn't just a short commute. But the chance to live out of the bustling heart of town is well worth the drive.
Between the woods to the east and the fact that you are living on a golf course, you aren't likely to be dealing with much in the way of vehicular traffic on any given day. The only times of the day you might see an increase is during the morning and evening rush hours. You might have to deal with the occasional golf cart, but these things move fairly slow, so you should have no problem getting out of their way.
The ground tends to be mostly flat in the residential areas with slightly rolling hills within the golf course itself. It's a shame you and your pup are not allowed to go for walks on the golf course. Instead, consider using the trails in the woods and the sidewalks to take your dog for their daily walks to avoid running afoul of any regulations about pets on the courses.
You and your dog can make good use of the two large wooded areas to the east for your walks. Although there are some houses scattered throughout the area, there are still plenty of trails for you and your pooch to make good use of. The woods also offer plenty of shade from the scorching hot summer sun which can help make your walks at least a little more tolerable.
If you like the idea of being able to take your dog to a fenced-in dog park, then you are a fairly close to the New Smyrna Beach Dog Park. Here, you will find two fenced in areas for different breeds. Each section has obstacles for the dogs to play on and watering stations to ensure that canine visitors can stay adequately hydrated. There's also plenty of places for you to sit in the shade while your dog gets out there and has a good time making new friends.
