Lionspaw Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
When the city of Daytona Beach was seeking to attract the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) to relocate to the area, it offered to build two golf courses on the city’s western edge as an incentive. Around those courses grew the LPGA community of homes, many of which are large, luxurious single-family dwellings with stunning views of the greens. A variety of other attractions related to both golf and tennis are also within this community.
The neighborhood of Lionspaw is a planned community located within the community of LPGA, which contains about 12 neighborhoods in total. Built to surround the LPGA, as well as the Florida Tennis Center and the US Tennis Association, Lionspaw is the newest of the neighborhoods and the only gated one.
Lionspaw offers both single-family homes and townhouses with architectural styles that range from Spanish to contemporary. The neighborhood itself is richly-designed and includes decorative, brick-paved streets, gas street lights, and well-maintained grounds.
The recreational highlight of the community, of course, are the two 18-hole championship courses owned by the city, the Champions and the Legends. Membership to Lionspaw residents is available for golfing or for social use of the community clubhouse and pool.
The Champions course was designed by Rees Jones and is ranked highly by Golf Digest magazine. The Legends course, designed by Arthur Hills, incorporates natural wetlands and is considered the more challenging of the two. Included with the courses is a driving range and five practice greens for putting. One- to three-day courses are on offer, as is a program for junior golfers.
Daytona Beach offers plenty of sporting excitement in addition to golf and tennis with the Daytona 500, Daytona Beach Bike Week, Biketoberfest, and Turkey Rod Run. Residents can also take part in a variety of water activities at the beautiful, nearby beaches.
