Today’s retirement homes offer superb facilities, amenities, and services for seniors. Plenty of these excellent seniors' communities also feature golf options that might include on-site golf courses, driving ranges, and putting greens. Indoor practice greens and driving ranges also ensure you can play year round. Numerous luxury senior homes have unlimited golf privileges on nine-hole or 18-hole courses.
Many golf facilities are part of active adult retirement communities. These residences are intended for healthy and self sufficient adults looking for a more relaxed, less stressful environment than they would find in their own homes.
Retirement residences with golf might provide you with golf lessons from professionals and equipment if required. One senior particular appreciates the extra instruction: "My swing has never ever been better. Before I came to my new home, my ball kept going into the forest. But all he did was showed me that my grip on the club was just the tiniest bit off and then all of a sudden it was going straighter and farther. I love golf now more than ever. I call the golf pro my best friend because he changed my swing. But to be more serious, he is also just an incredibly nice man just like all of the staff at my new place."
Retirement golf communities are no longer a luxury exclusively for affluent individuals. Prices for today’s golf course communities significantly vary. Many of these homes are amongst the most affordable and in the best locations to retire.
