Reports reveal that since the year 1986, golfers in the U.S. has jumped to thirty-four percent and the number of golf residential communities is rising as well. Many prospective homebuyers prefer the healthy, green and refreshing atmosphere the golf community offers.

Residential golf communities fascinate both golfers and non-golfers alike. It also draws attraction to a wide range of age groups. Most of these communities offer other amenities such as softball and baseball fields, swimming pools, and tennis, and basketball, volleyball and tennis courts aside from the golf course itself. There are also added features such as hiking, biking and equestrian trails. Some have community recreation center, a clubhouse, restaurants and reception areas. The homes in the golf communities range from one-level villas to mid-rise condominiums and large single-family houses and sometimes are within the same community.

Golf is believed to be a rich man’s sport only, but today, many players of both sexes and in various income levels are enjoying the game. The various kinds of homes in these communities reflect this vogue with most developments offering affordable choices of homes.

While most people think that golf course communities are only good for retired persons, most homes are built multi-generational that appeal to young and old alike. For those families with children, the big concern is the school system in the local school. There are plenty of informational sites on the internet that lists the statistics of the schools in the golf community.

Another feature that attracts prospective buyers to a golf community is the clubhouse atmosphere. Some golfers prefer an upscale, resort-type atmosphere that includes a formal restaurant for entertaining business partners and family members. Other golf homebuyers choose a more laid-back and family-oriented type with many activities for children and casual social events such as barbecues and ice cream parties.
