Golf course communities like Crow Creek in Calabash, have become a common feature in the Coastal Carolinas. Living with fairway frontage offers some excellent benefits such as outstanding views, having access to golf in an instant, a quality home in a safe neighborhood of other quality homes, and nobody building right up behind you.
Golf course communities, while similar in some ways, are all quite different from one another. Some have their main focus on the golf course itself, while others are residential neighborhoods foremost, with the course as a side benefit. It might surprise you to know that a fair number of residents in golf course communities don’t even play golf. While the idea of the typical golf course community homeowner being a retiree and their golfing friends, many younger families are buying Crow Creek Real Estate for its beauty, quality and safety. They are buying a lifestyle and a home with excellent appreciation value.
Depending upon where your home is located, there certainly is the risk of stray balls ending up in your yard or through your window. Living on the golf course means being all right with golfers coming onto your property to retrieve the occasional off-target ball. In general, most homeowners find these risks are worth the benefit of living in such a peaceful and beautiful location.
There is Crow Creek Real Estate available as close or as far from the greens as you wish. Not all homes in a golf course community are right on the green. There will be lovely homes across the street and within a few blocks of the course itself that still have all the conveniences of the close proximity to the course and the great neighborhood, but without the risk of stray balls and people walking on your property.
Buying a home behind a green, or right next to a tee box, as opposed to a few yards up from it, may allow you to avoid the highest risk of having your home visited by stray balls. There is some evidence that indicates that homes on the right side of the fairway are hit more often by erroneously sliced balls.
