Reasons to Consider a Golf Resort Community

2013 is well underway, and with the tax season almost over you may be reevaluating a few financial and personal priorities. Well, if one of your priorities includes making time for life, a golf resort community may be right for you.

Whether you’re looking to start a family, expand your family, or just incorporate a little more leisure into your lifestyle, golf communities are a popular choice for all interests and ages.

Love Golfing?

There are many reasons to consider buying a home in a resort community and if you enjoy golfing than all the more reason to consider buying in Alabama. The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is made up of 468 holes of championship golf—the largest golf course construction ever!

Golf resort communities in Alabama, specifically here at Ross Bridge, offer unbeatable access to one of the 11 different Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail sites across the state. The New York Times calls the Trail “some of the best public golf on Earth.”

Golf Not Your Thing?

That’s ok too. Many resort communities boast a variety of social activities and living amenities. Ross Bridge, for instance, provides residents with events year-round, such as Farmers’ Markets and seasonal festivities. You don’t need to be an avid golf enthusiast to enjoy our signature pool, 12,000-square foot European spa and over five miles of activity trails for hikers, cyclists and bird watchers.

Resort communities are great for young families. Between the grassy lawns, playground, clubhouse, and aquatic center with separate baby pools, it’s almost impossible not to love the golf resort-lifestyle!

Everyday or Every Season?

Perhaps you’re looking for your first home, second home, or maybe just considering a regular vacation spot. A golf resort community can offer a variety of real estate options with you in mind. The first time buyer benefits from the security of a community setting, but prides in the independence of a spacious stand-alone home.

Young families can take advantage of the “front porch-friendly” neighborhoods, playgrounds, kiddie pools, seasonal clubhouse gatherings, and plenty of outdoor space. Older families and retired couples can revel in social activities with friends and neighbors and delight in the spa and golf amenities.

Seasonal and weekend “residents” can take full advantage of the resort appeal with familiar faces and reliable features. Golf resort communities truly capture the essence of life and play, while remembering that the vacation isn’t just about the golf. Although, being so close to the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, it’s ok if it is!
