Turnbull Bay Country Club Estates is one of the largest neighborhoods inside The Preserve at the Turnbull Bay Golf Community. This is one of many public golf courses in the county and is open to all ages. Living within the boundaries of the course might be perfect for the avid golfer, but you do have to keep your eyes open for the occasional flying ball.
While the communities here are very quiet and idyllic, you do have to give up the convenience of living closer into town. Amenities such as grocery stores, pet supply stores, restaurants, and even gas stations mean taking a drive back towards town.
One of the more unique benefits of living in the middle of a golf course is that, instead of being surrounded by cement and pavement, you are surrounded by grass and trees. This will help keep the temperatures around your home just a little bit cooler than they are in the heart of town.
The terrain in Turnbull Bay Country Club Estates is peaceful and residential. Wide streets have sidewalks running down both sides for you and your dog to walk on. You should never have to walk on the roads unless you are crossing over to another part of the community. One of the better things about living here is that the only real traffic you see is during rush hour and it's limited to those who live in the area.
Although this is not a gated community, you don't see a lot of strangers here and you and your family should feel quite safe taking your dog out for their daily walks. The terrain here is flat and offers very little in the way of a challenge for you and your dog, but you can easily replace the exercise you would get going up and down hills with distance by using each of the neighborhoods to add more distance to them.
Living in Turnbull Bay Country Club Estates means living in the middle of a vast green space. The only problem with this is that your dog is not allowed to be out on the course!
There are, however, several tracts of undeveloped land along the shores of Strickland Bay for you and your dog to hike on or get out play on. Be aware that these areas are not maintained and there is the potential for fleas, ticks, and injury.
Since we are talking about green space, how can we not talk about the beach? The beach offers you both miles of sand to hike along. You can use the soft sand for serious exercise and then the hard sand and surf for a nice relaxing walk back. While you are at it, take a few minutes out to play with your dog in the ocean where they can cool off and have fun.
