State - County - Local

One of the most challenging part of moving to a new location is figuring out who to call for what.

The purpose of this page is to provide newcomers to Alden Pines with basic contact information for the myriad of agencies and services necessary to get established in this community.  You will find a website or contact information for everything from turning on your water to requesting removal of alligators from your ponds. 

It is even more difficult to decide who to call for household, yard, pool, pest control, medical and dental services, hairdressers, nail technicians, etc when in a new area.  Following is a list of service providers in our area that have been recommended by others for their honesty, capability and responsiveness.  We are always looking to expand this list.  If you or one of your friends has positive, direct knowledge about other service providers in the area who do good work, please email us at aldenpinesboard@comcast.net.  Include their name or company, contact info and the type of service they provide.

Alden Pines Golf Course

Note:  The golf course is a value added amenity in our community. Having it here adds to our property values and attracts revenue for the upkeep of the course.  The course is financed by paid memberships and the paying public. Please respect the rights of golfers when they are playing by not walking the trails during play hours, not allowing children to play on the golf course and not walking your animals during golfing periods. If you do walk your pets on the trails in the early morning or late evening, please assure they are on leashes and that they do not damage the greens.

Conversely, golfers are expected to respect your property rights.  If you find golfers are repeatedly entering your property to retrieve balls....and asking them to stop doesn't work.... contact Stew Bennett, Golf Course Owner at 239-283-2179.
