Buying in a

Private Golf Community

Every Private Golf Club Community on Hilton Head Island, in Bluffton, or in Beaufort is going to be exceptional. The courses were built by legends of golf course architecture and are all for the most part, flawless. The amenities are as luxurious as they are plentiful, some even world-class.  Yet, as spectacular as the golf courses and amenities are, it's the membership that provides each club with its identity, uniqueness and its heartbeat.  The members are the main ingredient that makes each private club and its club culture so splendidly different from one another.  We are deftly tuned in to these communities and sincerely hope you choose us to lean on for transparent navigation in accomplishing your real estate and lifestyle goals.  We’ll make sure that your new home, club, and community fit you to a tee.

Buying in a

Public Golf Community

Purchasing a home within a public golf course community offers a range of advantages, as well as some potential concerns that prospective buyers should take into consideration, whether or not golf is their primary interest.

Some of the Benefits

Amenities:
Public golf course communities often come with a host of amenities that extend beyond the greens and fairways. These may include tennis courts, pickleball facilities, fitness centers, on-site restaurants and bars, and a clubhouse. These amenities are available to all residents, making it a great choice for those who may not be avid golfers but still want a variety of recreational options within their community.

Community Social Life:
These communities often foster a strong sense of community due to the shared love of golf and other activities. Many public course communities have men's and ladies' golf groups, which can provide you with a ready-made social network and golfing partners. However, it's essential to assess the activity levels and costs associated with these groups to ensure they align with your interests.

Property Values:
In general, homes within golf course communities tend to maintain their property values well. A well-maintained golf course can enhance the aesthetics of the neighborhood and contribute to higher property values. However, the condition of the golf course and its management can vary significantly, so thorough research is crucial.

Membership Opportunities:
Some public course communities offer the option to purchase memberships, effectively upgrading the course to "Semi-Private." These memberships are often surprisingly affordable, providing additional access to the golf course and its facilities. This can be a significant advantage for the golf lover who is looking for a tighter social circle without the private club price tag.

Some of the Concerns

Property Owners Association (POA):
The Property Owners Association in a public golf course community can be more restrictive compared to non-golf course neighborhoods. These restrictions aim to maintain the quality and aesthetics of the community, but they can also limit what you can do with your property. It's important to understand these restrictions, including POA fees that may cover maintenance and improvements to the golf course and common areas.

Golf Course Conditions and Management:
The quality and management of the golf course can vary widely. Poorly maintained courses not only affect the visual appeal of your property but also have the potential to impact property values. An accurate, overall picture of the current condition, management, and historical performance of the course is needed, as changes in reputation and quality can influence property values.

Community Reputation:
It's essential to consider the reputation of the golf course within the community. Positive reviews and a thriving golf culture can enhance your experience and property values. Conversely, a poorly managed or unpopular course can have a detrimental effect.

We would love the opportunity to provide you with all of the information, all of the insight, and all of the guidance needed to make the right decision, in the right community, for your individual needs.
