Located in the rolling hills of Central Lake County, Florida, Bishops Gate Golf and Lakeside Community is 10 miles from the Florida Turnpike and about 40 minutes north-west of Orlando. We are home to over fifty residential homes and a premier junior golf academy, with up to one hundred students. All homes in the community are golf course or lakefront properties.
The community was previously known as Sarabande Golf and Lakeside Community, with an 18-hole golf course and very limited practice options. In 2012-13 the golf facilities were renovated to create a first-class training facility, with a 15-acre range and eleven golf holes. The golf course is organized as a 9- or 18-hole golf experience, with two different sets of tee boxes on seven of the holes and two different pin positions on eight of the greens. We were inspired to make the golf experience a mental challenge – like a game of chess – and in keeping with this, renamed the development Bishops Gate.
Given our location on Little Lake Harris, we also offer a limited marina with thirty-nine slips, accepting boats of up to twenty feet in length and ten feet in width. Lake Harris is known for its bass fishing, and is connected to the chain of central Florida lakes, with access all the way to the Atlantic Ocean through Jacksonville!
Our amenities currently include a swimming pool, gym, and four lighted, hard tennis courts.
