An Active Adult Lifestyle

The choice is yours at Carolina Trace. With two 18-hour golf courses, a tennis club, lake for boating and fishing, various card and game groups, garden clubs, book clubs and great neighbors, you can decide how active you want to be. Join the men’s or women’s golf league(s), play on your own or golf daily by joining one of the many men and woman golf groups.

 An active tennis club welcomes all levels of play and even offers free workouts to improve your tennis game. It is not unusual for a newly retired person who hasn’t played tennis in years to pick up a racquet and move into the “A” players group!

Lake and Pool Activities

The lake is monitored for bass and crappies, and with a catch and release attitude, the activity on the lake is awesome. Non-gas motors allow for a peaceful setting on the lake. In the evening, we see residents on pontoons enjoying an evening ride on the lake. Want to swim? The Club offers an Olympic-sized pool with swim lanes. Additionally, many of the 18 property owners associations for our 1600+ homes have a pool and tennis court(s) for their owners. This is truly an active community.

Family Friendly

It is a community for all ages. While retirees make up the majority of home owners, we are delighted to see families playing and dining together at the clubhouse. Carolina Trace Country Club invites all residents to their Halloween and Easter egg celebrations. Camp Trace is held in the summer for club members’ children and grandchildren to attend.

Plenty of Property Options

People driving into Carolina Trace are in awe of the beauty of this planned community. House ages range from newly built to the 1970s, when the golf courses and neighborhoods where originally developed. House prices range from the low $100s to $400,000, with the average house price at $250,000.

Beautiful custom-built homes on manicured properties can be seen throughout the community. Located just south of the Sanford town center, the tax rate for 2016 was .892 per $1,000. For a home assessed for $200,000 the taxes would be just $1790.00 per year! This truly is an affordable, luxury area that you must see.
