Golf Year Around in Central Texas
In a national publication Llano and Burnet Counties in Central Texas were
listed as one of the best places to retire in the U.S. It was also mentioned that
Llano county has one of the oldest average populations in the entire country. Llano
County is on the west side of Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake and Lake LBJ. Burnet County
is on the east side of the lakes.
People come from all over the country to retire in the Highland Lakes area for
several reasons. The main attractions for the retirees are the climate, the lakes,
golf, the lifestyle and because there are so many retirement communities here. You
can golf year round in this part of Texas.
There are several communities with a large percentage of retired residents along the
west side of Lake Buchanan consisting of 15 to 50 homes in each area. They are:
Floyd Acres, Golden Beach, Greenwood Acres, Geola Estates, Tow and Paradise Point.
Each community has their own boat launch and some have park areas. Most of the
residents are retired and have moved to the area from out of state or from other parts of
Texas. You will never feel like a stranger in the Highland Lakes area because almost
everyone here came from somewhere else, and we always welcome newcomers.
There are also retirement communities on Inks Lake and Lake LBJ. Some of these areas
are: Highland Haven, Granite Shoals, Sunrise Beach, Blue Lake, Deer Haven, Kingsland and
Horseshoe Bay. Kingsland is a town of about 4,000 people at the north end of Lake
LBJ and has some shopping, restaurants, etc.
Horseshoe Bay is both a retirement community and a very popular recreational area for
golf and lake activities. You can find beautiful lakeview homes and condos, golf
course homes and waterfront homes in Horseshoe Bay.

a population of over 6,500 and is the main shopping center for the area. They have a
