Phoenix has about a half a bazillion golf courses. (OK, over 200. But that’s still a lot of golf courses.)
We get inquiries about golf course properties on a regular basis. At this moment, there are 1,810 homes listed for sale on golf course lots and 6,121 listed in “golf course subdivisions” in the Phoenix area MLS. (Note: sometimes the definition of “golf course subdivision” is stretched considerably…)
There are many things that make owning a home on a golf course or in a golf course subdivision special and unique. Many people won’t live anywhere else. Many have no desire to put up with beeping carts, screams of “FORE!” or having a Titleist shattering the kitchen window. (Having been on the launching end of a wayward window shattering drive, trust me, it happens.)
Below are a couple of a pretty good articles/lists of things to consider when you are pondering a life living on the links. They are a good place to start in your data gathering quest…
