How to Sell Golf Course Living to a Skeptic

You've got your eye on that perfect home at a new development just off the ninth green, but the rest of your family isn't convinced.  How do you make the argument that golf-side living is the way to go?  Here are three key arguments to convince even the most skeptical.

1. Residential Home Values May Be Higher

According to a study done on the impact of a golf course on residential property values, golf course frontage was second only to waterfront property in terms of creating value for residential properties.  Of course, some homes are better than others.  Homes located near the golf club tend to be worth more, as do those that directly face the golf course.  Golf courses are not created equal either, so make sure to do your research before you take the plunge.

2. Access to Green Space

When living next to a golf course, there is no need to worry that a new build will go in that empty lot behind yours.  You reap the benefits of the landscaped greens and a parklike view, without having to do the maintenance yourself.  For a perfect example, take a look at Ormond Beach Florida new homes located on the greens. 

3. Peace and Tranquility

Golf isn't like most sports, it is played quietly, in small groups.  This means that much of the time, there will be very little noise coming off the course. In addition, there are rare exceptions, but for the most part, golf is a daytime-only game, which means that at dusk, the course becomes empty.  You still may have neighbors to either side, but having a golf course backing your property could actually mean increased privacy.
