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.
