Punta Gorda Isles (PGI) is a deed-restricted, waterfront community. All homes, with the exception of a few located on St. Andrews Golf Course, are on wide canals (no less than 100') with access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. This is truly a boater's paradise. Where else can you live with you boat 20' from your back door and have quick access to the best boating in Florida. The City of Punta Gorda maintains the seawalls and canals, which is a huge benefit to the local homeowners.
There is a variety of amenities and a wide price range of resale homes, condos and new construction available in Punta Gorda Isles. Time to the Harbor, age of the home, view of the water and size of seawall all contribute to the difference in pricing. Home sizes range from modest, 1,800 sqft bungalows to 4,000+ sqft manses built on double lots.
Punta Gorda Isles first development started in 1957 and different areas were opened over the years. The last area to open did so in 1981. There was never a mandatory build time so there are still vacant lots scattered throughout the old and new area. The developer, PGI, Inc. finished their development in the early 1980's, therefore all vacant land is privately owned and resold at the owners discretion.
Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association (PGICA) is a central resource for the community and represents the interests of the residents of PGI. In addition, the PGICA hosts a wide range of activities, recreational groups, educational classes and community involvement action groups. You will find activities to meet all interests.
St. Andrews South Golf Club Saint Andrews South Golf Club is a private club, wholly owned by its members, with limited membership of fewer than three hundred, the lowest in the southwest Florida area. The 6103 yard, par 71 course was designed by Ron Garl, a leading Florida golf course architect, and was built in 1981. It presents a challenge to all golfers regardless of the golfer's handicap. Its 15 lakes and 48 sand bunkers tend to produce a truly sporting round of golf. The tees (4) on each hole equalize the challenge of every golfer.
