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.

Fairfield Glade is perched high atop the Cumberland Plateau, and offers serene mountain beauty as it sits on the highest point between the Rocky and Smoky Mountains. One of the favorite features of this area is the moderate year round temperatures. The pleasant summer days and the cool summer nights can be attributed to the Cumberland Plateau’s 2,000-foot-elevation, allowing for more comfortable temperatures and much lower humidity than most areas of the south.
What to do with all the fabulous weather and beautiful scenery? Golfing, boating, fishing, hiking, walking, swimming, tennis/pickleball-the list of fun activities available is simply endless! Plus, an outdoor amphitheater and biergarten just opened to host live music, movies, food and community events – it’s a great gathering place for neighbors to come together.
The community offers multiple subdivisions with a wide range of home sizes, price ranges, and views that include mountain, lake, golf and protected woodlands. Another attribute is the incredible cost of living in Fairfield Glade – no state income tax on wages, very reasonable home prices, and extremely low property taxes and club dues.
Fairfield Glade is just 6 miles from the city limits of Crossville, a small town, but bustling with activities. Crossville’s central location on Interstate 40 has made it a hub for many outlying areas and has given rise to a booming retail environment, offering shopping, dining and entertainment choices. The community is also located right off I-40, less than an hour from Knoxville, and an hour and a half from either Nashville or Chattanooga.
“The biggest deciding factor for choosing Fairfield Glade was the people, both in the Glade and in the town. When we came to visit the first time, we had no appointment and no agenda – we just popped in and wandered around. Folks stopped us everywhere we went – Food City, the Wellness Center, Villa Pizza – and just chatted. No one was in a hurry, everyone was interested in our story, everyone had some tidbit to share. The same thing happened on our second visit, and then on every visit we made once construction started. We felt like we had become part of the community before we were actually part of the community.” Michelle and James Bayless
Fairfield Glade has 11 lakes and two marinas.

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.
Plan your visit
Grab your clubs. The only way to make sure you’ll love a golf community is to visit and, well, play a round or two. Once you’ve selected a few places you’re interested in, plan your visit. Many golf communities offer tours and “stay and play” packages, so prospective buyers can ‘test-drive’ the course and community. 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.
