The Northeast Florida division of Lennar Corporation, the nation’s largest builder of quality homes for all generations, selects Hampton Golf as the management partner for Stillwater, the 556-home active adult community in St. Johns County.
Led by former PGA of America president M.G. Orender, Hampton Golf manages golf courses and country clubs throughout the U.S. The team will use their wealth of experience to create a first-class active adult lifestyle for Stillwater, centered around the 18-hole on-site golf course designed by renowned architect Bobby Weed, whose projects locally include Slammer and Squire Golf Course and Golf Club at Fleming Island. Hampton Golf will also manage the clubhouse with poolside snack bar, on-site restaurant, resort-style swimming pool, tennis and bocce ball courts, and a host of other amenities to be announced.
“Hampton Golf is the natural fit to bring Stillwater to life. Working with M.G. and the Palencia Club team, we witnessed firsthand the incredible experiences they create for communities,” said Matt Devereaux, Division President for Lennar in North Florida. “We chose Hampton Golf because they cater to the entire active adult lifestyle—from the restaurant, the pool, tennis and more. Hampton Golf brings that expertise to manage all the amenities our buyers want and need, on or off the course.”
This luxury resident experience will include an array of clubs, daily activities and events for the community. Hampton Golf manages 1,100 unique lifestyle focused events per year, with weekly experiences like “Wedges & Whiskey,” “Ladies’ Luau Guest Golf Day,” and “Golf Practice Sessions with PGA Professionals.”
“From an event lifestyle perspective, it’s like living on a cruise ship. There are multiple opportunities to get fit, be active and be social,” said Travis Norman, Executive Vice President for Hampton Golf. “Every day there will be something going on for residents to enjoy. We make the lifestyle our residents want into a reality.”
Located between Longleaf Pine Parkway and Greenbriar Road (County Road 210), the development marks the first 18-hole golf course to be built in the area in over a decade. Stillwater will also be the first active adult community with a golf course in Northeast Florida.
“Lennar is known for great communities with first-class golf courses as a central amenity. This is a milestone for the area, and it means a lot of growth and vitality for the game here in Northeast Florida,” said M.G. Orender, Hampton Golf President. “The timing couldn’t be better. Across every market, we’ve seen a tremendous resurgence in the game of golf. People are re-discovering how social, competitive and fun the sport is. Working with Lennar and Bobby Weed to bring a new community and course to life in this corridor provides a great opportunity.”
