We don't necessarily need to be in an over 55 place (although it might be worth a look). Just prefer not to be in a neighborhood with mainly families, since our kids are all grown and on their own.

We are waiting until some time after the tournament at TPC to head down and take a look. See what it might be like to live there compared to Charleston.
Sawgrass CC is more expensive than TPC plus its narrower and you can hear the noise from A1A in some areas. You can figure 20% higher price than TPC, but you are closer to the ocean which may not be a plus during a Hurricane. The lots are also smaller than TPC. Plantation is for the wealthy with the buy in and high monthly fees which depress house prices but you don't have to deal with anyone that isn't a resident.

I liked TPC when we visited last summer. Would definitely be worth a second look. We've had some close calls with storms here. Being on the opposite side of A1A away from the ocean would not be a negative for us at all.
