Nearby Flagler Beach: a Worthy Road Trip for Plantation Bay Residents

One of the perks of east-central Florida living is that you’re never far from the Atlantic Ocean.

That’s especially true for Plantation Bay Golf & Country Club in Ormond Beach, where residents enjoy a beach commute that rarely exceeds 10 minutes, and then only for wildlife crossings.

The most direct route to the beach — a whopping four miles — leads to North Peninsula State Park, a beautiful, protected shoreline that offers generous accesses, parking, restrooms and other convenient facilities.

But Plantation Bay’s “hometown” beach isn’t the only option. Head 10 miles further north and you’re smack dab in the middle of […]

Fore! Plantation Bay: a Golf Destination For All

A golf course in your back yard accomplishes two things: it provides a lovely vista from your patio or porch, and the opportunity to play golf every day.

The everyday thing? Well, that depends on available time and your season of life. A golf-crazed early retiree might be out there every day.

That’s the real-life […]

Resort-Style Living for All Ages at Plantation Bay
