Before you tee up to purchase a property, here are several important aspects to consider when buying a home in this setting. Consider the following:
Private Clubs Aren’t the Only Option
Many people think private golf courses are the only option for golf living but both semi private and equity membership clubs are options that might give you what you’re looking for without the high cost of a private club. Here is some info about both options:
Semi private or public golf course communities – these have golf courses located within them where you don’t have to be a member. Take into consideration that you will have outsiders with access to the community and scheduling tee times may be more difficult since they are not private. The advantage is the flexibility of having the golf amenities nearby to use when you wish. Membership costs in these types of communities may be significantly less than that of a private club. Home values in these communities may also be more affordable than those located near a private club.
Community with equity membership club – Membership may or may not be required in these neighborhoods, but if you do join, there is typically a substantial initiation fee and recurring dues obligations on a regular basis – monthly, quarterly, etc. The advantage is better access to tee times and facilities as they are limited to members only.
