Las Vegas Golf Course Homes
Las Vegas has 21 Regulation Courses, and most have homes on every piece of land, not on the course. There are 9 golf courses in Henderson, 2 in North Las Vegas, 3 Municipals, and 5 courses in the valley’s private communities.
Some of these will also have multiple courses. The grand total, including Pahrump, Mesquite, Boulder City, Primm, the Piute Reservation Course, and Laughlin, there are over 50 golf courses within 50 miles of Las Vegas. (I counted s,o I may not be 100% accurate- but I’m close.)
Homes on golf courses are varied. We’ve sold 2 bedroom homes an,d we’ve sold a 12 bedroom home with golf course frontage and everything in between.
The best golf course community will depend on similar factors as a normal property, however, there’s a country club and golf course involved. Discounts and access to tee times may be a consideration for you but not others.
Do you have a favorite course? Do you want golf frontage or is being in the neighborhood adequate? What does the country club offer? Do they have a restaurant and a gym? Are there neighborhood functions?
What area of town do you want to live in? And, what do you want to pay? There are a few golf courses that throw fabulous fireworks shows on the 4th of July. Do they? Once we know those answers, we can narrow down the choices.
Affordability of Golf Properties
The most affordable communities with golf course frontage will be in Active Seniors or 55+ Communities or on the east side of Las Vegas. There are a couple of golf communities in the Northwest part of the valley that are priced moderately too. Link to our 55+ Communities page to search in those 9 communities.
Sometimes Realtors are not accurate with their listing. They may miss inputting in a golf category or maybe leave out that the view over the top of houses or from the bathroom window. When you’re ready to look at homes we verify the accuracy of your picks.
With us knowing the streets and communities, it should save you considerable time. Searching now will give you an idea of what’s out there and what you can get for your money.
Living on a fairway will be less expensive than living on a green or at a tee box. Besides Full-Custom Homes, there’s also Semi-Custom Homes, Tract Homes, and Golf Villas that you may also want to consider. Once you know which area you want to live in, let’s go open some doors.
Golf Course Homes with a View!
Be aware that just because a listing says “golf view,” most golf communities will have golf and mountain views or golf and city views, so remember that a view may not only be referring to a golf course. You might also get lucky and even have two or three types of views.
Since these are golf communities, many homeowners have a golf cart to get around in, room to park one in the garage, and a charging station. A golf cart can be nice for a drive on and off the course around the neighborhood.
There are many “slow times” on a Las Vegas Golf Course, so walking and being able to explore can be quite enjoyable. Our kids and their friends liked gathering golf balls the best at grandpa’s house.
If you don’t like to play golf, living in a golf community is still enjoyable. If you are a golfer, you might want to see the reviews on TwoGuysWhoGolf.com. They have a review page with listings for most of the Las Vegas Valley Golf Courses.
Because a golf community has a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere, many people like to live in them for reasons other than golf. There’s a sense of community when belonging to a golf country club. Seeing neighbors at dinner is enjoyable and relatives and friends visiting are additional reasons to live within a community.
Ranging from mansions to Condominiums and everything in between. There are many housing choices and options! Besides what type of home is available in your price range, there’s a variety of location types to consider in a golf community.
Price: Differences in price and value of a property can be small or extremely large depending on the lot size and location. For example, a home on the 18th hole at TPC Summerlin will cost a lot more than a home on the 3rd Fairway, and homes on TPC Summerlin will cost a lot more than homes not on a TPC course. Same thing on less prestigious courses except on a smaller scale.
Location: General factors to consider- Are you on a Fairway or near a Tee-box? Fairways get more golf balls hitting the house. Tee Box homes have voices carry and have less backyard privacy but balls hitting your home are rare. Putting greens have people hanging around laughing and having fun.
Security: Almost every golf course community is gated or guard gated. Golf Courses also have private security staff. Besides patrolling the course, the streets are patrolled. Some communities offer vacation checks, and many 55+ communities have an emergency flashing light system that’ll alert the security patrols and neighbors.
Entertainment: My father loves to sit in his raised spa watching golfers during the day. In the evenings, it’s time to eat outside while enjoying the sunset. He experiences the cool breeze off the golf course, nature, and bunnies while drinking a glass of wine at night. What would you like? Warning: Las Vegas Bunnies LOVE pansies.
Peace and Tranquility: Nighttime is as dark and peaceful as you can get in Las Vegas while living in the brightest place on earth. Golf course sprinkler noise and lawn mowing once a week can, however, the wide-open spaces are usually quiet and almost as entertaining as golfers- you never know what you’ll see!
Amenities: Golf communities often have community centers or clubhouses, which often have a restaurant and/or a bar. Besides being the 19th Hole, these gathering spots are a great way to meet like-minded people and entertain guests.
Most communities with golf courses will also have other facilities. These may range from a general pool, possibly having therapeutic pools and spa facilities, locker rooms, fitness centers, and various sports courts. Besides classes, Siena has people who often play games in the shaded areas poolside. There’s a lot to do for the non-golfer too.
Events: Each community will have events for the residents. A few have live music on the weekends. Some offer free lessons and clinics.
Lifestyle: Why buy a house on a golf course? I think it’s all about lifestyle. What exactly do you want to see when you drive home? Personally, I enjoy having green grass to look at, and knowing that I don’t have to mow or water it, really makes a community better for me!
