Riverwood Community & Real Estate Info



The award winning golf course is the crown jewel of this master planned community. Rated consistently as one of the top courses in Florida, Riverwood boasts a four and half start rating from Golf Digest along with a top 10 ranking in the country in 2002. This 18-hole par 72 Championship golf course was designed by Gene Bates, www.batesdesigngroup.com. The front nine is laid out like a North Carolina Pines course and the back nine borders our wetland preserve, giving the golfer two distinct types of play. 
Riverwood has over 1300 acres of property with about 300 acres of land that is preserves, wetlands,   ponds, or lakes.
The community was started in 1992. In the late 1990’s, Centex Homes became the developer and builder and completed development in 2014.
