Discover the Best Golf Communities
If your idea of a good time involves watching your ball fly a couple hundred yards down the fairway, living in a golf course community might be for you. The good news is there’s no shortage of golf communities to choose from! Of the 16,000+ golf courses in the United States, more than 3,000 are part of a residential community.
Why choose a golf community?
Golf course communities make your favorite sport the center of your lifestyle. There’s no need to drive across town to play a round or work on your game—a quick 9 or full 18 holes is just a short walk or cart ride from the front door, and often, with no tee time required.
What are the benefits of living in a golf course community?
As a golfer, you already know the top benefit of living in a golfing community: close proximity to the links. But there are several others reasons people choose the golf community lifestyle.
- Community and neighbors: Golf communities are, at their core, social places where you can easily make friends and bond with neighbors over shared interests. There’s always a friend nearby to play golf with—or grab a drink, share a meal, or take a walk with.
- Active and healthy living: If you’re looking for an active and healthy lifestyle, a golf community offers you miles of walking and a community of people who are ready to enjoy the outdoors with you. Most golf communities have gyms with ample exercise equipment, plus fitness classes ranging from morning yoga to water aerobics, and other sports like tennis.
- Nature: Golf communities offer plenty of outdoor space, so you can get some fresh air and enjoy the natural surroundings whenever you choose.
- Luxury landscaping: Many golf communities are known for their attention to detail when it comes to landscaping. You’ll find well-maintained ponds and lakes, well-groomed trails and boardwalks for walking, and flowers and trees that bloom with the seasons.
- Amenities: Most golfing communities come with a homeowners association that provides other amenities in addition to the course. Clubhouses provide space for dining, themed parties, social clubs, and general socializing with friends and neighbors. Shared pools and hot tubs offer a place to lounge and relax after a round of golf.
- Other hobbies: Whether you’re a chess lover, knitter, or a pickleball fanatic, many golf communities come with organized events and clubs for hobbies of all kinds.

Retire Tennessee Program Communities
Whether you’re ready for full-time retirement or want to relocate to a better place, Tennessee is a state that deserves your attention.
Consider these facts before deciding on another location: Tennessee collects no state tax on income or other retirement-plan benefits and no sales tax on prescription drugs. Property taxes in Tennessee are very reasonable, especially with available exemptions for retirees and age 65+ residents, resulting in the second-lowest overall state and local tax burden per capita in the nation. And Tennessee offers the eighth-lowest cost of living in the U.S.—more than 10% below the national average.
The Retire Tennessee program is a state government initiative designed to spread the word about all of the great reasons for retiring or relocating to the Volunteer State. From the Great Smoky Mountains in the east to the banks of the Mississippi River in the west, a total of 19 urban and rural counties in the program highlight the unique natural attractions and cultural amenities that each has to offer.
Tennessee has more than 60 state and national parks with some of America’s finest freshwater fishing lakes and hiking destinations that range from the 210-mile Cumberland Trail to Chattanooga’s 16-mile Riverwalk. The delightful four-season climate means that you can enjoy a round of golf or a kayak excursion any week of the year. And the world-famous Tennessee music scene includes Beale Street blues in Memphis, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, and bluegrass festivals in charming mountain towns like Kingsport and Cookeville.
Request more information below and let the Retire Tennessee program introduce you to the next great adventure in your life.

Carolina Colours brings to life the very best of small Carolina towns-past, present and future. A mere 30 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, the waters of the Trent and Neuse Rivers converge to surround the vibrant waterfront town of New Bern, NC. Community amenities include the 25+-acre Carolina Lake, a Harris Teeter grocery, parks, trails and sidewalks, an Activity Campus with golf, fitness, tennis, swimming, pickleball and-for those quiet moments-rocking chairs.
Located in New Bern, NC, perhaps North Carolina’s most desired small town retirement destination for the past 25 years, CAROLINA COLOURS offers a variety of living environments and lifestyle choices. While typical homesites are of a size that many modern communities consider over sized, these half acre and larger sites have proven popular and have allowed numerous custom homes to be constructed, giving the core of the community an eclectic but attractive architectural composition, with trees abundant.
With quality custom builders ready to help you design and build on any homesite you purchase and with three regional/national builders constructing dozens of homes for sale that will be ready for occupancy in the summer of 2022, your choices of location within the community are varied. Carolina Colours Realty, located on-site, sells only new and resale properties within Carolina Colours and is staffed with agents that know all there is to know about the many properties and activities within the community and the New Bern area. In this period of high inflation, Carolina Colours still provides one of the best values in the coastal plain of North Carolina for those that want an attractive, planned community with numerous amenities and activities to fit any lifestyle. And for golfers, the Carolina Colours course is widely considered the premier layout in the region.
The Carolina Colours Golf Course has been very well received. The course is considered by many one of the most attractive and fairest tests of golf in the region, with six teeing alternatives allowing players from scratch golfers to beginners the proper challenge, with sufficient variety for those that play four times a week. Unlike many new courses that create a setting, the Carolina Colours course, designed by Bill Love, the long time chairman of the environmental committee of the National Association of Golf Course Architects, fits into a wooded, rolling landscape as though it belongs. Even non-golfers love to ride or walk its paths.
What sets Carolina Colours apart, however, is its incredible sense of community. From Friday night gatherings for drink and food at the Pavilion, the 16,000-square-foot community clubhouse, to seemingly endless scheduled activities, both active and passive, neighborhood gatherings, walking and biking, organized trips and more, the community welcomes newcomers with a smile and an open invitation to join with others as frequently as one desires.
New Bern, North Carolina’s first capital city, has its historical districts and quaint shopping areas right downtown, where the Neuse and Trent rivers converge, giving many an Annapolis feel. With abundant local marinas and the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean only about 30 miles away, water activities abound. And with a commercial airport and close proximity to major highways, New Bern is easy to get to. Once there, the quality of medical care and the numerous regional cultural and festival type events allows for a life that can be as active or inactive as suits any chosen lifestyle.
North Carolina has always been recognized for its natural diversity and gracious hospitality, which now has made it into an extremely popular retirement destination. Choices abound for a healthy, happy retirement setting, whether you want to relax on the beach or enjoy the great outdoors in our mountains or stay busy in a bustling city. The North Carolina Certified Retirement Community designation means a city has completed a comprehensive evaluation process with requirements outlined by the North Carolina General Assembly. These Certified Retirement Communities are recognized for providing the amenities, services and opportunities retirees need to enjoy active and productive lives.

While you’re there, you can talk to community residents and local realtors, explore the surrounding area, and make sure your chosen spot really feels like home.
