Buying a home is an exciting process, and part of the reason many retirees pick Arizona is for the unlimited golf course options. But the decision to buy a home on a golf course does require some careful consideration. Here are 4 things to consider before buying on a golf course. 

  1. Early to Bed, Early to Rise: the grounds of a golf course must be maintained daily and before the first tee time is scheduled. This means that grounds crew will be out and about working before you have had your first cup of coffee. If you are a light sleeper you could have an issue with the sound of the lawn mowers and carts driving by.
  2. Location, Location, Location: there are a couple factors to consider when buying on a golf course. If you are close to cart path, be prepared for traffic throughout the day. You will also want to consider the location of the home and the possibility of golf ball damage depending on how the golfer slices the ball.
  3. How Friendly Are You? If the home is located near a tee box, you can expect to hear the players preparing for the next hole. If you plan to spend a lot of time enjoying your Arizona backyard, you may be surprised to see strangers hanging out so closely. However, this could present an opportunity for you to make a new friend!
  4. A Golf Course is Not a Public Park: while it might be tempting to hop the fence, and have a picnic on the freshly cut greens of a golf course, that is one restriction they take seriously. For your safety and the safety of the players, homeowners are not allowed to access the golf course at free will. There are some courses that have designated areas but the typical home located on a golf course is only to be enjoyed for the view.
