An exclusive enclave still being built out, The Bridges was designed and constructed to preserve the natural beauty of its 540 acres. The heart of this residential community is its championship golf course, host to Tiger Woods' annual Battle of the Bridges, a nationally-televised event. A Robert Trent Jones II design, the par 71 course boasts five sets of tees, playing almost 7,000 yards from the tips. At the center of the community is the 35,000 square foot Bridges Clubhouse, built to resemble a medieval Tuscan village and the winner of the prestigious Gold Nugget Award for Best Design. A state-of-the-art swim and fitness center offers members the full gamut of health and recreation facilities.
The Bridges offers a well-balanced community for all ages. The remaining custom home sites start around $1.5 million.

Resales here have been starting around $1.7 million. Lennar also has under construction larger homes, in the 4,000- to 5,000-square foot range, called the Cortile Collection whose designs have won national awards.
