Golf Course Living at Cascades St. Lucie West

8 Sep

Golf Course Living at Cascades St. Lucie West.   Wow! Imagine how great living on a Golf Course can be?

If you’re a lover of golf then waking up to walk to the course or simply strolling along watching others play can be pure heaven – or is it?

The Pro’s of Golf Course Homes

Well – Golf Course Homes are very nice because of the view, privacy and the open space behind your home. Looking out at a slowly undulating golf course fairway with trees and grass is very relaxing and stress relieving.  It is like having a park outside your back door!

When your backyard opens out onto an even larger expanse of green grass that someone else takes care of – it can be fantastic!  (even if you do not play golf!)

It means that you do not have any close backyard neighbors looking into your backyard or peering down from their windows into your personal, private space.  Usually you only have neighbors on each side of your house or perhaps across one corner if you live near a green.

The closest neighbors in back are usually across the fairway.  How far away they are will depend on how wide the fairways on that course or golf hole are.

If you like to play golf and belong to the course that you live on it is even better because you don’t have to drive to the course.  Check the community regulations on whether you can have your own golf cart, or if you can just walk the course and pull or carry your bag.  Figure out the total cost per month based on how many times a month you will be playing and the monthly fees and cart charges.

Many communities are very family oriented and most of the children that live there can start learning to play at a very young age, and can play after school!

But living on a golf course does have it’s disadvantages —

The Disadvantages of Golf Course Homes

Your house may be hit by golf balls!  Yes, this does happen and depending on how narrow the fairways are and the placement of your house along the course it may happen really often.  Home owners insurance may or may not pay for damage to your home from golf balls hitting it.

Windows can be broken, house siding can be hit & pitted, screen porches torn & furniture damaged.

Probably the most difficult thing to fix is the divots in the stucco siding of a home from golf balls hitting it. Many people discover numerous pock marks in their siding from the golf ball impacts.  And they must be filled and painted before the home can be sold.

Noise from Golf Course Maintenance!   Do not expect to sleep in on the weekends!  The guys come around between 7AM & 8AM to cut the grass, groom the bunkers and change the pin locations.  Sometimes they even come around before it is light out and the new equipment has headlights that can shine directly in your bedroom windows facing the back of the house and golf course.

Animals – having more nature in your backyard means more animals and creatures.  Any golf course ponds naturally attract frogs, toads, birds, snakes, etc.  These can be tremendously fun to watch, but you have to be wary of what may be in your yard and fences will not keep everything out.  The animals in ponds can also be incredibly noisy at various times of the year.

Spraying – Golf Courses have to fertilize, and control weeds.  The overspray can reach easily into your yard and impact your plants.  Be careful what you plant along the back edge that adjoins the area maintained by the golf course.  The weed killer that they spray can cause bushes to turn totally brown and lose their leaves.

The thought of Golf Course Living is a dream but in reality it could drive you up a wall if you’re not prepared for everything that comes with this luxury lifestyle.

Master-Planned Communities For Active Adults-Not Your Typical Subdivision Anymore

Master-Planned Communities For Active Adults-Not Your Typical Subdivision Anymore

Retirement living is changing drastically – these days you’re more likely to see residents zooming by on motorized golf carts and jogging that 3rd mile, than chugging along in a push wheelchair. This is not your grandmother’s retirement community.

Many of these master planned retirement communities are age-restricted and often located near metropolitan areas or nearby suburbs. The minimum age is typically 55, with one member of the household qualifying. Some communities restrict ownership to those who are age 62 and older, and all occupants must be at least 62.  Many are gated and private.

Living in Style – Amenities

How do you know if you’re in a Master-Planned Community or simply a typical subdivision? Generally, they are distinguished by the tremendous number of amenities and conveniences;

Club House
Golf Courses
Libraries
Fitness Centers
Swimming Pools and Spas
Arts & Crafts Centers
Billiards and Card Rooms
Tennis Courts
• Basketball Courts
Continuing Education Classrooms
• Hiking & Biking Trails
High-Tech Media Centers
Banquet and Ballrooms

The list is endless; it’s like an on-going vacation that never ends.

So why would you move out of a perfectly comfortable home that has served you well and into a retirement community filled with strangers? Just think of all the benefits waiting for you.

• Single-story living.
One level means those facing troubled knees or aching bones aren’t forced to climb stairs.

• Birds of a feather.
Your neighbors are unlikely to be screaming teenagers on skateboards; they are people just like you.

• Little or no yard maintenance.
The homeowner association mows lawns, waters gardens, trims trees, sweeps walks and, in areas where it’s needed, provides snow and ice removal.

• Resort living.
Fun-filled activities are located within walking distance or an easy commute. All fees are included.

• Mix work with play.
Many of today’s seniors are not ready to live a life of 100% leisure and want to continue working or perhaps start a new career. Homes in retirement communities generally include an office, den or separate workspace.

It’s also all the intangibles like human services, religious diversity, community spirit, healthcare and lifelong learning that are the cornerstones of these master planned retirement communities.

When choosing where you will retire, ask yourself, what type of life do I envision?
