Legal Question in Constitutional Law in Florida

I live in a 55+ community in Florida. They keep adding new rules for smoking. Now there is no smoking at the community pool, the catwalks and the parking lot. Being I pay association dues for the community property and I am part of the community, can they legally tell me that i can't smoke in the parking lot or any of these other places?

This isn't a Constitutional law question. The Constitution only limits what the government can do. It does not limit the rights of private entities like your community. The community can forbid smoking on its own property if it wants to.
