It is believed the first golf course community was created in the United States in the 1920’s. It included several homes where people could stay during the winter months. The objective was to escape the cold of their permanent address and enjoy playing golf in warmer weather.
In many respects, these principles still apply today, specially on the Costa del Sol. Many people buy a residential property on a golf course to enjoy the weather and of course play golf.
Back in the 1920’s, the homes were quite simple. They did not have a kitchen as the people staying there were expected to dine with each other in the main clubhouse each night. However, that has changed a great deal over time and today. You can purchase a residential golf course property ultra-modern and with everything you could wish for in a home.
Whether it be the United States, Thailand, Australia, Spain, Portugal, Turkey or the United Arab Emirates, you will find some spectacular homes for sale on golf courses. You do not only get the benefits of access to the golf course as and when you like. These properties often include private swimming pools, Jacuzzi’s, fully fitted luxurious kitchens and bathrooms plus much more.
