Luxury Living on the Treasure Coast

Kolter Homes introduces their first golf course and country club community, tailored for active adults

By Angélica Escobar

Celebrating its 26th anniversary, Kolter Homes originated in Palm Beach County, Florida, and maintains its headquarters there. The company extends its reach to cater to new home buyers across the expansive regions of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

A notable facet of Kolter Homes is the distinguished Cresswind brand, meticulously designed for active adults, offering nationally acclaimed lifestyle programs and amenities.

In a significant stride, Kolter Homes embarked on the full-scale land development of Astor Creek Golf & Country Club in 2022. The community, symbolically referred to as “full-swing,” opened its doors for new home sales in Q4 2023, envisioning a total of 900 homes upon completion, with an estimated full build-out duration of approximately eight years.

Situated in the scenic locale of Port St. Lucie, Florida, Astor Creek Golf & Country Club strategically positions itself within a short 30-minute drive from the pristine beaches of the Treasure Coast. Drawing on Kolter Homes’ extensive market experience since the early 2000s, notably with the revered PGA Village, Astor Creek emerges not just as a residential development but as a haven for new home shoppers, offering lifestyle, value and unrivaled access to the best of South and Central Florida. 

“With Astor Creek Golf & Country Club, Kolter Homes is establishing the next generation of country club community where the classic and modern are artfully blended both in the community aesthetic as well as club experience and services,” said Kolter Homes Senior Vice President of Marketing John Manrique.

Astor Creek Golf & Country Club signifies a visionary collaboration, with professionals like Chris Wilczynski, owner of CW Architecture, contributing to the project. It marks the evolution of country club communities, seamlessly blending classic and modern elements in both the community’s aesthetic and the promised club experience and services. The deliberate selection of partners who embraced the vision of creating a next-generation golf community underscores Kolter Homes’ commitment to innovation.

The community is a championship 18-Hole design by Chris Wilczynski, and the future clubhouse will include a full bar and restaurant, Fitness Center powered by EGYM, resort-style pool, pickleball, tennis, bocce and basketball courts, and much more. With convenient access to I-95 and Florida’s Turnpike, it’s an easy drive to the Treasure Coast’s best shopping, dining, recreation, and entertainment.

Central to the community is a state-of-the-art, five-tee concept golf course, designed to infuse the golfing experience with elements of fun and challenge. Notable features in every Astor Creek Golf & Country Club home include Low-E impact-resistant windows, high-efficiency 16 SEER Carrier® central air conditioning, environmentally sustainable refrigerant, spray-foam attic insulation, GE Energy Star® appliances and robust concrete block construction.

Astor Creek sets itself apart with its commitment to floorplan flexibility, offering a minimum of 25 structural options and, in some cases, over 40 different configurations for customers to tailor their living spaces. Catering to a buyer seeking a casual, contemporary country club lifestyle, the community welcomes individuals who appreciate tradition and service while embracing modern style and a relaxed attitude.

The homes at Astor Creek range from two to six bedrooms, with sizes starting at just under 2,000 a/c sq. ft. and expanding to over 5,000 a/c sq. ft. This diversity caters to a broad spectrum of homebuyers, with prices currently ranging from the $600s to over $2 million. Pricing nuances are influenced not only by home style but also by the customer’s choice of homesite, with many options offering coveted golf course and/or water views.

Customers embark on a personalized journey in a state-of-the-art design studio, tailoring their homes with fixtures and finishes to suit their unique tastes. The extensive structural options accompanying every floorplan serve as a key differentiator for Astor Creek in the competitive real estate market.

Although some floorplans have already received awards, the community as a whole has a trophy case that remains conspicuously empty, a reflection of the recent opening of Astor Creek just a few months ago.

In a grand celebration, Kolter Homes marks the opening of the Treasure Coast’s first new home golf community in decades with a weekend-long festivity. Guests are invited to tour Astor Creek Golf & Country Club’s 11 new decorated model homes, preview the 18-hole championship golf course and practice facility, learn about club membership and resident-exclusive amenities (included with a new home purchase), get informed about move-in ready home opportunities and enjoy complimentary food and live entertainment.

The new golf course and model homes opened in September 2023 on a total of 682 acres, with 900 new homes planned inside this exclusive community. Each new home purchase includes a resident membership providing full access to the golf course, sports courts and amenities within the clubhouse. New homes at Astor Creek are all designed as open-concept, one-story residences, many of which offer a golf course and water views. All new construction homes feature contemporary designs with a wide variety of structural options and hundreds of fixture and finish choices available from Kolter’s on-site design studio previously mentioned. 

With a focus on innovation and a personalized homebuying experience, Kolter Homes marks the opening of Astor Creek with a grand celebration, inviting guests to explore the community’s offerings and embrace a new era in golf community living on the Treasure Coast.
