Owning a Golf Property: All You Need to Know

Owning a Golf Property: All You Need to Know

There is more to golf than just the sport itself. Many golf courses have developed into established communities in prime locations with a broad range of golf properties for sale.

Owning a property at a golf venue is more than owning a property, it is about being part of a community, enjoying the ambiance and enjoying a wide choice of facilities.

European Tour Destinations reveal all you need to know about owning a golf property.

About Fine & Country Golf and European Tour Destinations

Fine & Country Golf is the preferred real estate partner for an elite selection of golfing brands within the industry including European Tour Destinations, offering some of the most prestigious real estate opportunities around the world.

ETD has gone to great lengths to provide homes at their resorts which give residents and visitors unbeatable living and lifestyle options.

Who are golf property owners?

Many assume that residents on golf courses will have an interest in golf or be golf members, when in fact, this is not the reality. ETD have revealed that based on previous case studies and close contact with their network venues, the majority of buyers of gold resort properties are not actually golfers. In fact, 66 per cent of homeowners are non-golfers.

There are of course some exceptions, notably Black Mountain in Thailand where 98 per cent of property owners are golfers, however, the majority of golf property owners buy to avail the active year-round lifestyle, and for the safety and security of living in a resort supported by the continuity and consistency of strict homeowner rules and limitations.

The benefits of owning a golf property

Golf property owners also buy for the undeniably peaceful and pleasant resort environment where courses are meticulously maintained and the neighbourhood always looks lush, vibrant and immaculate. The rental appeal of a resort property is extensive, beyond that of alternative holiday home investments. In addition to this, should the homeowner ever wish to sell, properties within resort communities with private gardens and pools hold their value, even during the current pandemic.
