Highland Fairways Homes

The land for this beautiful community was originally purchased in 1985 and developed by Florida Leisure Communities.  The plan was to build a large mobile home community.  Those plans changed after the first 60 homes were sold.  The developer then built and finished the community with another 600 site built homes featuring 10 floor plans including the Rob Roy, McKenzie, Fairway VI, Essex III, and the Castlebay.  Near the end of 1990's,  one of the nicest and largest 55+ communities in central Florida was complete.  Later, the developer completed several other beautiful communities such as Colonnades and Carillon Lakes.  See Highland Fairways Homes for sale.  Golfers should also consider Sandpiper which is also a 55+ community in Lakeland.

Homeowners Association

Residents of the community own their home and lot.  The monthly homeowners association fee includes mowing of each individual lot plus the common area maintenance and landscaping throughout the community.  The monthly HOA fee also covers the two gated entrances to the community and use of the clubhouse, tennis courts, pool, spa, fitness room and shuffleboard courts.

Highland Fairways Golf

The golf course is an 18 hole executive length privately funded course.  Resident golfers can pay to play or become a golf equity member.  The Highland Fairways golf club is just one reason why so many residents consider this community the perfect place to vacation or retire.
