Magnolia Point Golf & Country Club in Green Cove Springs, Florida is a lovely community just off Highway 17 as you cross Governor’s Creek bridge. Magnolia Point was developed in the 1980s. It was the second guard-gated golf and country club in the area, following the popular Ravines Golf & Country Club. Both courses were designed by Mark McCumber of Ponte Vedra Beach. I remember when Magnolia was brand new and seemed so far out! Now it’s just down the road since Fleming Island was developed.
Magnolia Point Golf & Country Club is a 1000 acre community which features a 27 hole golf course. The grill located in the bottom floor of the clubhouse is aptly named – The 28th Hole. Their web site says the Magnolia Point Golf Course is “touted as the best layout in North Florida with as many as 13 signature holes.”
A community designed for golfers, the USGA agrees: in August 2006, Magnolia Point Golf and Country Club was chosen as the final sectional qualifying place for the U.S. Amateur.
The Main Dining Room is open certain days during the week and on weekends and is available for weddings and private parties. For more information about golf membership or dining, visit the Magnolia Point Golf & Country Club web site or call 904-269-9276.
Swimming and Tennis are available for members also. The Clay High Swim Team and Tennis Teams practice at the Club. This is a wonderful community service to give Green Cove Springs students and Clay High School.
Residents of Magnolia Point are very active socially. A monthly magazine named The Magnolia keeps residents informed. We ate lunch at the 28th hole a couple of weeks ago after taking some photos of a new listing, and it was a beautiful day. The food was good, the scenery gorgeous, and everyone who came by was friendly and relaxed.
There is a mix of custom homes with some newer production homes built by Centex during the real estate boom. The custom homes have large lots filled with mature landscaping. The developers wound the community around the golf course, so the roads wind gracefully. Some of the builders in Magnolia Golf & Country Club include: Sig Higgenbotham, Rosewood Homes, Centex Homes, and Cordele Builders. Golf Side Villas line the street to the Clubhouse. There are still some vacant lots for sale and you can bring your own builder.
Magnolia Point offers the quiet of country living with the sophistication of a golf and country club community. Green Cove Springs is a charming town poised for the next rebound in the real estate market. Riverfront town homes and condos are either under construction or on the books, and more than one DRI (Development of Regional Impact) has been approved just outside the city limits. Now is a great time to invest in Magnolia Point.
