What can anyone tell me about Glen Lakes? I think it is a gated community in Weeki Wachee. What is this community like?

Looked at Glenn Lakes a couple of times. Seemed to be a very nice community.
Very well mantained with a golf course and recreational facilities. We just didn't want to be that far north of Tampa, otherwise it appeared to be a great place.

glen Lakes is a gated community about 2 miles north of U.S. 50 where most of the shopping, restaurants are. Things are going north because Spring Hill is getting pretty crowded. I am very familiar with Glen Lakes and Regency Oaks. Regency Oaks is not gated and doesn't have the fees Glen Lakes does. There are some great communities in the Spring Hill area that are gated.
Thanks,
Bonnie Barbieri

Glen Lakes is an upscale, gated, golf course community with homes from the mid $100's on up to $500K-$600K. Of course the mid $100's are a little bit older homes.

Your monthly association fees are rather high and you also must have a social membership to the golf club which runs it up more. This is to be expected in a community of this caliber. I live in the subdivision just south of Glen Lakes.

Regency Oaks is a subdivision about 5 miles south of Glen Lakes and at this time is closer to shopping but there is actually a new Publix shopping center going up right in front of Glen Lakes.

Also near Glen Lakes is Woodland Waters which has is deed restricted and has beautiful homes but does not have a golf course or club house and is not gated except for one small section. There is a very small HOA fee.

Edit: And I just saw that this thread was pulled from the abyss and had not been posted in over a year till it was pulled out today.
I am hoping the OP already got the info she needed.

How can you find out what those HOA fees are? I don't see they have a very professional website

You have to call them. They have different areas within the community and fees differ. The maintenance free homes will have higher fees and not sure what the social fees for the golf club entails. Silverthorn and Timber Pines are 2 other gated golf course communities but Timber Pines is 55 and over. Heritage Pines is another 55 and over gated golf course community but is just over the border in Pasco.

I'd be concerned in Glen Lakes regarding their financial stability, long-term. The Sales Office provides a 'financial statement' that looks like it was scrawled on the back of a napkin. Unable to view audit results (a FL requirement). 7 or 8 percent of homes in Glen Lakes are for sale, a high number vs similar developments. When the developer bails (not if, when) look out!
No new construction since about 2009, though they have much undeveloped acreage. (compare this to Citrus Hills, for example, that is building and selling like crazy)
Appears to be a high number of foreclosures and distressed properties. Neighborhoods have a 'tired' look.
The golf course has a faint odor of 'recycled' water that hasn't been recycled adequately.
