VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass., May 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Golf Course Home Network announces its 2018 list of the Top 20 Golf Communities in North America.
However, this Top 20 list is a little different. It’s not about golf.
Communities have been chosen because they are providing experiences, amenities or opportunities that appeal to their residents’ passions and interests. In the process, these golf communities have attained a firmer grip on residents’ loyalty and gained in appeal to potential members.
“Successful communities are pushing beyond golf to create a more expansive and inclusive lifestyle for their residents,” says David Lott, Founder/Publisher of the Golf Course Home Network.
For example, The Landings at Skidaway Island, GA, has established Skidaway Farms for residents passionate about gardens. Harbour Ridge Yacht & CC, Palm City, FL, has an active dog park. And philanthropic devotees have opportunities to follow that path at Dataw Island, SC.
Forbes magazine has recently chronicled the rebound in golf real estate. One key reason is that community life is now about much more than golf, and communities are the richer for it.
