Myths About Buying Country Club Properties

by Bruce Lawson

The location and type of home that you purchase will have a major impact on the overall quality of life that you are able to enjoy. For many homebuyers, a country club property could be exactly what they are wanting, but there can be enough misinformation to make it difficult for them to consider these properties.

Myth: Country Club Properties Will Always Include A Membership To The Country Club

One assumption that people may have about buying a luxury home is assuming that ownership of one of these properties will automatically provide them with a membership to the country club. For some clubs, this may be the case. However, it is usually more common for these clubs to provide these homeowners with membership discounts or partial access to the club grounds. You will need to check the terms and conditions for the country club where any potential properties are located so that you can know what to expect once you finalize this purchase.

Myth: Country Club Properties Are Always Extremely Expensive Luxury Homes

Another assumption that could discourage individuals from buying country club properties could be the assumption that only expensive luxury homes will be an option for these communities. In reality, country club properties can range from medium to high in price. As a result, individuals shopping for a home to buy may be surprised to discover that there may be many homes in these communities that are within their budget. Due to this reality, you should consider expanding your home search to include properties that are part of country club communities.

Myth: A Country Club Property Will Constantly Suffer Damage From Golf Ball Impacts

Many country club properties will be along the golf course. As a result, individuals may assume that these properties will constantly suffer damage due to being struck by errant golf balls. However, these types of impacts can be fairly rare as most golf courses will include thick foliage along the course to help intercept stray golf balls. Furthermore, many of these homes will have protective features on the side of the house that faces the golf course so that damage is unlikely to result from these impacts. This can include impact-resistant glass, vinyl siding that is rated for impacts, and even the installation of a fence or other barrier. These upgrades can help to protect the home some that golf balls will be less likely to strike it and even less likely to cause damage if they do.
