I had the pleasure of working with a family relocating from North Carolina looking for a home here in Lakeland, Fl. They weren't specifically looking for a golf course home, but this one needed some updating that they were not afraid of and they got a great deal on it.One of the things they liked about the neighborhood was that it is not a cookie cutter neighborhood, and the homes in here vary greatly, making them unique.Thinking about calling Lone Palm Golf Club Home? Check out the homes for sale here!Lone Palm not the spot for you? Check out all of the Lakeland Homes For Sale on a Golf Course. Lone Palms Golf Club was founded in 1964 by Publix Founder George Jenkins. It is a private club.

Check out Haven Realty & Investments recent blog post about the Lake Morton Nesting Swans! Its a beautiful way to spend some time with friends or family in the beautiful outdoors! Right by Downtown Lakeland, its a beautiful spot to check out the City of Lakeland's Swans. There are also White Pelicans, Ducks, Geese, Ibis, as well as many other types of local birds. They are roped off and protected by City employees that patrol the lake daily due to theft issues in the past, as swan eggs can sell for as much as $150 each and a cygnet (hatchling swan) can fetch as much as $300.
