Large Texas 55+ Golf Community of Sun City Boasts Top Notch Amenities and a Wide Selection of Housing Prices
Georgetown is a fast growing town 35 miles north of Austin in the Texas Hill Country and is the location of Sun City Texas, a gated, 55+ golf community. It was the first Del Webb community in Texas and is one of the reasons that retirees relocate to this old cattle-staging town. Eventually, Sun City will have 7,500 homes and nearly 15,000 residents.
The community meanders across more than 4,000 acres, and almost all homes are ranch ramblers (a few town homes are here, too). Buyers have dozens of floor plans from which to choose, and sizes range from a little less than 1,000 square feet to approximately 5,000 square feet. Floor plans are open and airy, and the majority of homes have two to three bedrooms, two baths and an attached two car garage. New homes and resales are available. Prices start in the high-$100,000s and top out in the $900,000s. Please check with a Realtor to verify these prices as they may change.
Sun City's residents enjoy a strong sense of community. The Village Center is where people meet to partake in chartered clubs, including ones devoted to aviation, bridge, RVing, tennis, gardening, investing and woodworking. At the Arts and Crafts Center, residents take classes and teach classes in painting, stained glass, fabric and fiber arts and ceramics. Monthly workshops bring in local artists to share their expertise.
Residents also enjoy a business center, a computer lab, restaurant and grill and a small library. Adult learning continues through Senior University, a partnership with Georgetown's Southwestern University that offers academic courses for retirees.
Sun City's 20,000 square foot recreation center/clubhouse provides even more to do. This facility boasts a ballroom (where theater presentations take place), a six-lane indoor pool, an outdoor, resort-style pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a spa and classes in everything from yoga to water aerobics.
Open-air Berry Lake Pavilion, built along the creek that runs through the grounds, is a popular gathering place for picnics and community events. Residents also take advantage of an extensive system of jogging/walking paths, parks and greenbelts throughout the community.
The highlight of Sun City is its three golf courses. The White Wing Golf Club is a challenging, 18-hole, par-72 championship course, and Legacy Hills Golf Club is an 18-hole course nestled in rolling hills. It was designed by PGA champion Billy Casper and golf architect Greg Nash and is recognized as one of the premier golf courses of the Texas Hill Country. The Cowan Creek course has small landing zones off the tee and approaches into large undulating greens. A practice range, a putting green, a clubhouse, a pro shop and a lounge are here, too.
St. David's Georgetown Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission and is award-winning for pulmonary care, emergency medicine, general surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery and stroke care.
Summer temperatures in this area reach the high-90s during the day and dip into the mid-70s during the evening. Winters are mild with high temperatures in the 50s and lows in the 30s. On average, the Georgetown receives 33 inches of rain per year.
