Pine Ridge is uniquely located in the center of Citrus County's rolling hills. Known for its large multi-acre tracks of undeveloped land Pine Ridge Florida is conveniently situated between Inverness and Crystal River. Grocery shopping is only 5 minutes away, Crystal River 15 minutes away and it is only a 30 minute drive to Ocala.
With its one to five acres plus wooded lots, it has the honor of being the largest equestrian center in Citrus County with 22 miles of trails.
While horses and nature enjoyment are a large part of the community, Unit III is dedicated to the country club and bike trails, thus no horses are allowed.
This section constitutes almost half of the ten thousand developed acres of Pine Ridge.
With a capacity of more than 4,000 homes, it is one of the fastest growing areas of the county.
Besides the well-appointed community center with all of the daily activities, there are ample tennis courts, horse shoe pits, shuffle board and a new play ground.
Integrated into this beautiful landscape is a championship caliber golf course that runs throughout the countryside.
Pine Ridge is rated one of the best courses in Central Florida, featuring lush green fairways framed by towering pines and stately oaks,
Tifdwarf Bermuda grass greens and strategically-placed bunkers. Four tee boxes offer yardage for golfers of all abilities.
Pine Ridge has an eighteen hole regulation course and a nine hole par 3 course. The eighteen hole Pine Ridge course was cut out of the forest.
The course's most difficult hole is #10, a 380-yard, par 3, requiring a downhill tee shot to a small green.
The club has recently opened a somewhat challenging par 3 course adjacent to the championship course. The greens are large and undulating, and the fairways can be tricky.
The Pine Ridge clubhouse features the Palm Court Cafe with full service bar and specialty menu. The spacious clubhouse has an atrium dining area, tables, and booths for your after-round enjoyment.
