World Golf Village has many great opportunities. We have excellent "A" rated schools not to mention St. Johns County school district is ranked #1 in the State of Florida. I have a background in education and my husband is employed by the school district. My best advice as a former educator and mom of 2, is to plan your move based on where you want your children to attend highschool. I can give you an indepth overview of school options based on your needs.
The biggest difference between golf vs preserve lot is that there is more privacy on a preerve lot. In the summer months when you're out enjoying your pool, it's awkward to have a golfer in your backyard. However, golf course lots are beautiful and give you an expansive view. In World Golf , the golf lots are higher in price and limited. There are builder lots that are good deals, you get a custom home with all the warranties, golf membership at a non custom price. There are several local builders that are have reasonable prices.
This is a great community to live in and raise a family. Let me know if you would like more information.
