North Carolina Retirement Golf Communities, Not Just For Golfers

Over the years I have met with families who for one reason or another indicated that they were averse to living in a golf retirement community. Despite the myriad of additional amenities, they were opposed to any setting that featured golf.

A typical objection centered on the fact that they were not golfers and didn’t want to pay for an amenity that they had no intention of using. Naturally, not wanting to pay for an amenity that they wouldn’t use is understandable, however being required to pay additional fees in golf community is a common misconception.

The vast majority of golf communities featured on Carolina Ocean Living are public or semi-private courses, where the support for the course is provided specifically by golfing residents and none residents. Most, if not all, public or semi-private golf communities don’t require residents to join the course or pay additional fees. Families are more likely to pay for pools, clubhouses, and tennis facilities that they won’t use than pay for golf.

Another common concern is the idea that couples would be outsiders because they don’t golf. My experience working in golf communities revealed that approximately 50 to 60 percent of golf community residents don’t consider themselves golfers. Many communities offer a rich variety of activities and aspire to attract families by offering broad lifestyle options.

Furthermore, families from all over the country aren’t drawn to the coastal Carolinas because of the golf courses; there is golf available where they now live. Families are drawn to the Carolinas because it offers beautiful beaches, an agreeable climate, an economical cost of living, and relaxed lifestyle.

Many none golfers are attracted to golf communities because they provide a wonderful aesthetic quality to the community. The lush, manicured fairways provide a greater sense of space throughout the community and the ponds and lakes offer residents attractive views.

A home adjacent a golf hole enjoys a buffer to neighbors, resulting in more privacy and home with a fairway in back feels like an extended backyard. Better yet, the golf course feels like a well maintained backyard that someone else has to mow.

Additionally, the green spaces also serve as a haven for wildlife. With over 200 varieties of birds calling North Carolina home, both fulltime and seasonally, golf courses and the adjacent tree lined fairways, ponds and lakes are welcoming sanctuaries.

The benefits of living in a golf community go beyond just the aesthetics. The golf clubhouses provide the opportunity and convenience for onsite dining, as well as a natural gathering place for residents to meet. In many cases the golf clubhouse is available to residents for special event, banquets and offers catering.

Also, everyone has that son in-law or brother who is mad about golf and can’t wait for a visit to enjoy the beach and some time on the golf links. A golf course creates a greater attraction for family members to visit, and a family trip to spend time with mom and dad becomes more appealing.

Before you decide to exclude golf communities from your real estate search and limit your choices, think about the advantages, and I believe you will realize that there is very little downside where golf participation is optional.

New Community Added

Published by under Uncategorized

North Carolina Golf Communities is proud to announce the addition of Landfall’s, located in Wilmington, North Carolina.

With nearly 4 miles of water front property on the Intracoastal Waterway and Howe Creek, Landfall’s nearly 2000 acres have been developed over the last 15 years into North Carolina’s premier coastal private golf community. Lakes, ponds, and a wide variety of land and vegetative environments are an ideal setting for the nearly 2000 homes that are, or will be, the human habitat within this gorgeous setting.

Located within Wilmington, North Carolina’s largest and most diverse coastal community, as well as one of its most historically interesting, and only 5 minutes away from the ocean front town of Wrightsville Beach. Landfall’s is perfectly situated to provide a quiet, yet vibrant and stimulating lifestyle.

hould membership in Country Club of Landfall be purchased, 45 holes of the best golf in North Carolina is minutes from your front door. Or tennis on the 14 varied court surfaces of the Drysdale complex, arguably North Carolina’s finest tennis facility, should that be preferred. Perhaps a healthy workout in the Club’s fitness center, or a swim in its Olympic pool, or dinner in its excellent dining facility is more what is desired.

If Club membership is not your desired lifestyle, a walk around Landfall Lake or through the nature trail beckons, while the kids play soccer on the community recreational facilities.
