Golfing Communities in Ontario

These adult lifestyle communities offer you more than just golf, as you will find plenty of other enjoyable services at your new home. Some of these include:

  • Health and wellness centers (i.e. swimming pools, fitness equipment and machines, spas, and massage therapies)
  • Games rooms (i.e. cards, table tennis, billiards), tennis courts, etc.
  • Libraries, lounges and dining rooms
  • Housekeeping and personal laundry
  • Party rooms for entertaining guests

One resident of a Richmond Hill retirement country club  particularly appreciates the onsite professional golf tutorials: "I have gone from being a pretty lousy golfer to all of a sudden being very, very good. My golf coach really helped me improve my swing and my form. Playing the sport now is just a much happier experience than it used to be. [This] is very typical of retirement home living. Once you move into one of these places, life just gets better. There’s less stress, less to think about, and more time to just enjoy the simple pleasures of life. For me, golf is, indeed, one of these pleasures."

Things to Consider about a Retirement Home in a Golf Community

  • Does it have any hidden costs? How are greens fees integrated into the monthly fees? What about guests from outside the retirement community?
  • Does the community and its owner have a good reputation?
  • How many holes does the golf course have? Does it have winterized indoor golf facilities?
  • How are green maintenance fees and other golf course costs accounted for? That is, how much of your active lifestyle home's cost goes into course maintenance?
  • How many holes does the golf course have? Does it have winterized indoor golf facilities?
  • Are there long term plans to keep the course? Developers may not be legally obligated to keep the course, so check their long term commitment to keeping the course.
  • How old is the community? What is the average age of the community’s residences?
  • Do you like the location? Is it close to where you want to be (e.g. family)? Is it accessible for your lifestyle?
  • Does the community charge a premium for homes closer to the golf course? If so, are you willing to pay this premium or willing to live a little further away?
  • Does the community allow pets? What other personal requirements do you have?
