For the past 11 years, Penn National Golf Course Community in Fayetteville, PA has been named a Top 50 Best Master-Planned Community by Where to Retire Magazine. To us, not much is more exciting than to have Where to Retire Magazine confirm what our neighbors already know: Penn National Golf Course Community is among the elite master-planned communities in the United States and offers a high quality of life in an exceptional location.
After 11 years, you might think that we wouldn’t get as excited about receiving this honor, but it actually means even more to us. That’s because we never take for granted the hard work and attention to detail that go into making an award-winning community. So even after winning this same award 11 years in a row, we are still incredibly honored and grateful for this designation that shows we have achieved our goal of being a “best in class” retirement and destination community.
Where to Retire Magazine has published its biannual ranking of master-planned communities since 1999, starting with the top 100 list and then making the list more elite in 2011 with the 50 best in the country. Since the inception of the award, Penn National Golf Course Community has made both lists. Penn National Golf Course Community, an age-targeted but not age-restricted community, with a diverse group of residents and neighborhoods located beside the 85,000-acre Michaux State Forest just 90-miles from the Baltimore-Washington beltways, is the only community in Pennsylvania to be awarded this distinction.
As a family-owned business, we pride ourselves on our friendliness as well as the many advantages we deliver for retirees. For example, Pennsylvania does not tax retirement income, making the state a great place to retire. Also, our lifestyle is second to none, with residents having the privileges of membership to the golf courses as well as access to the clubhouse (including the brand-new Black Oak Bar), swimming pool, and tennis/pickleball courts. Our residents participate in a wide variety of clubs and activities that provide networks for friendships and hobbies, and since Penn National has no Master Association fees or charges, you only pay for things that you choose to use.
Come celebrate our 11th year on Retire Magazine’s elite list with us with a visit to our community. We’re only 90 miles from the Baltimore, Washington and Northern Virginia suburbs. We bet you’ll agree with Penn National residents, Shelly and Don Paul Rance, who summed up Penn National’s appeal best in the article that appeared in the July/August issue of Where to Retire: “It’s everything we’ve dreamed about.”
