Spring Lake is a beautiful community in Highlands County, Florida southeast of Sebring, adjacent to the Sebring International Raceway. The Spring Lake Golf Resort consists of three different golf courses, with many available homes and land for sale.
Bordered by Lake Istokpoga, Florida's second largest lake, the community of Spring Lake is mostly flat, and consists of canals and golf course lots. The resort offers the guests and residents the ability to experience much of Florida's natural beauty. The typical lot size within the Spring Lake Golf Resort is 0.25 acres, and approximately 50 percent of the lots back up to either a golf course fairway, golf course green, or a canal.
Spring Lake Golf Resort is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for the "world's largest green", measuring 47,000 square feet (4,400 m2).
There are three different golf courses within the Spring Lake Golf Resort: a par 72, 18 hole course, named Panther Creek; a par 71, 18 hole course, named Cougar Trail; and a par 34, nine-hole executive course, named Bobcat Run. The Panther Creek Championship Links Course has six different tees to choose from and features Florida's longest hole - a par 6 at 800 yards.
The Spring Lake community has its own Property Association. It also has its own Board of Directors, annual dues and yearly budget, as well as a monthly newsletter that keeps its residents informed of such matters as the Spring Lake Bylaws, and the Spring Lake Declaration of Restrictions
