Golf Course Homes
LIVING IN A GOLF COURSE COMMUNITY
Golf Course Homes in Englewood and Venice usually come with various residential options. Most likely single-family homes and condominiums are available for purchase in Golf communities. Builders are starting to build also more coach- and carriage homes as well as condos in Golf Course communities.
Built around 18 or 27 – hole world-class golf courses, many golf course communities also feature extravagant recreation centers, lighted tennis courts, state-of-the-art fitness studios, lagoon-style pools, Olympic size lap pools, restaurants, sometimes boat launches, ballrooms, and activity directors.
Pro shops for golfers and future tennis stars are often integrated as well. 24-hour security and/or manned gates are standard; many golf course communities offer maintenance or semi-maintenance-free living.
New Golf Communities
New and newer golf course communities are now environmentally friendly and have vast portions of land preserved as wetlands or nature preserves. Those communities use reclaimed water to keep the lush landscaping green, and fertilizer use is restricted.
Nature preserves and park-like areas are integrated, and wildlife loves protected areas. Therefore, a variety of wildlife calls those communities home. There is not only the obligatory alligator in the pond. Usually, bobcats with their young ones, armadillos, turtles, snakes, and all kinds of birds are waiting for a photographer.
If you want to buy into a private member-owned Equity Golf Club Community, you may want to explore Venice Golf and Country Club.
Some communities offer a variety of clubs where the participants can learn specific skills, like photography or gardening. Some even offer piano lessons. Trips to exciting world destinations are often part of the deal, too.
There are always homeowners who like to plan and organize field trips. Those trips are an excellent opportunity to meet and interact with like-minded people while enjoying a trip to the Great Wall of China or a cruise on the Baltic Sea.
As a homeowner of a Golf Course Home, you can enjoy miles of safe walking trails. Some communities offer canoe and kayak launches. But that is pretty much a newer trend for the baby-boomer generation.
The premium lots always include a Lake, Golf Course, Preserve Views, or a combination thereof. Many of the homes in newer golf course communities have a touch of Mediterranean Style combined with regional-inspired architecture. More upscale homes now have the latest Home Automation Amenities. With your tablet or smartphone, you can control all “vital signs” of your home when you are gone.
Many Golf Course Homes hide behind lush, Florida-friendly, and manicured landscaping. Most award-winning and Eco-friendly master-planned communities are near commercial, recreational, and cultural opportunities.
