Explore Non-Golf Communities and Find Real Estate without Golf Courses

Communities without Golf

While there can be many benefits that come with living in a golf community, the country club lifestyle certainly isn’t for everyone. Golf course real estate—from tee to fairway to green—comes with pros and cons that many homeowners prefer to bypass altogether and opt for lifestyle community living without golf.

If you’re not an avid golfer, surrounding yourself with neighbors who line up for a tee time every morning probably isn’t for you. Steady stream of golfers in the community aside, the mowing, the watering, the potential environmental effects of golf communities (while not all bad), are all serious considerations for active adults looking for non-golf communities. Not to mention the additional fees and memberships that often come with living in a golf community.

Whether you have no interest in golf or love the sport but just don’t want to live on or around a golf course, you have many options in lifestyle communities without golf. Those featured here offer all the other services and amenities that make active adult communities great—many even have golf courses nearby just outside the gates.
