The Turnbull Country Club Estates are a small section of a much larger planned community on the end of Turnbull Estates Drive. Living here puts you at the southern end of the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve. The community is built around The Preserve at Turnbull Bay, a world-class golf course sitting on the shores.
While you and your dog may not be welcome to use the roughs and fairways for walks, there are plenty of other places you can go. By living here, you are assured plenty of peace and quiet. But at the same time, you'll find yourself a bit of drive from things like restaurants, pet supply stores, and even grocery stores. The good thing is that here in New Smyrna, a bit of a drive typically means no more than ten to fifteen minutes. Far from being a hassle, most who live here find living in a quiet, safe neighborhood worth having to drive to the store.
First and foremost, let's just say you won't have to worry about much in the way of traffic. The neighborhood sits at the end of a dead-end road. The only time you are likely to see much traffic is during rush hour, but even then, with so few homes, you should never have to worry. One of the great things about walking here with your dog is that you can you hike all over the entire Turnbull community without having to leave the sidewalks.
While the two of you can wander all over the golfing community on sidewalks, you will be doing so under the full blaze of the summer sun as there isn't much in the way of shade trees to help hide you from it. But with the preserve right next door, there are plenty of trials for you and your dog to take long walks in the shade on.
Turnbull Country Club Estates is surrounded on all four sides by green space, much of which you and your dog will not be allowed to go for walks on. This is the one disadvantage to living in the middle of a golf course as green spaces everywhere, but not an inch can be walk on!
However, because you live next to the Spruce Creek Preserve, you and your dog should have no problem finding plenty of shade to walk under during the heat of summer and trees to keep the chilly winter winds at bay. The preserve covers some 1,600 acres and offers miles of trails for the two of you to hike along. The trails are the result of efforts by students and teachers from local schools, members of the local community, and several county and state agencies.
Don't forget your mosquito repellent! The preserve grows a bigger crop of them every year.
