Sun City – 55 PLUS


Sun City Center is a large active adult community near Tampa, Florida. Over 11,000 residents enjoy this 55+ community for its reasonably priced homes, great amenities and an active lifestyle with nearly 200 clubs and interest groups. The community runs solely on volunteers.

The streets are golf cart permissible and residents can access shopping plazas, restaurants and the amenities via golf carts.

Each resident pays yearly dues for the use and upkeep of the library and buildings that house the many arts, crafts, hobby and sport clubs. Most houses in the community belong to one of the more than 100 Home Owner Associations that charge a monthly or quarterly fee to cover such costs as lawn care, landscaping and irrigation. Homes that are not located in a neighborhood association must maintain or pay for those services themselves.

The community is designed around three amenity campuses that each offer facilities for fitness, social and hobby activities. The Central Campus includes several buildings and outdoor activity courts. The Atrium at the heart of the Central Campus is the focal point for many community activities. It contains the fitness center, an indoor lap pool, indoor walking and therapy pool, an aerobics and dance studio, card room, computer lab and large conference center with several meeting rooms. The Old Town Hall in the Central Campus hosts a photography studio, billiard tables, an amateur radio club and small theater with stage. The Arts and Crafts Center includes rooms for bunka, stained glass, china painting, weavers looms, shell crafting, lapidary and sewing.

There are also three regulation size lawn bowling courts, shuffleboard courts, an outdoor pool, library, woodworking shop and ceramics, pottery and art studios at the Central Campus. The South Campus includes a 10,000 square-foot Community Hall that has a large auditorium with stage. The facility is often used for stage shows, dinners and dances. There are several outdoor sport courts in the South Campus including four pickleball courts, ten Har-tru tennis courts, two volleyball courts, a softball field and two dog parks. The West Campus was a recent gift to the community from WCI Communities and includes gardening plots and RV storage.

In addition to the three amenity campuses in the original community neighborhood, there are several other amenity centers in the greater Sun City Center area including clubhouses in Kings Point and Renaissance Club neighborhoods reserved exclusively for residents of those areas. Greater Sun City Center Florida has eight golf courses that host 162-holes of golf. There are both championship and executive courses, and the community is home to the acclaimed Ben Sutton Golf School. Regardless of your skill level, you will surely find a course that provides a fun and exciting golf experience in this active adult community.
