Golf is more than a game in North Carolina--it is a lifestyle. North Carolinians don't just want to drive to the golf course; they want to live next to it and enjoy all the amenities, such as full-service clubhouses, Olympic size pools, fitness centers, tennis courts, and more. Golfers are one of the highest-income purchasing groups in the housing market, and home prices and golf are definitely linked. A golf course sets the tone for the community and becomes the centerpiece. Depending on location, homes in golfing communities can run from $300,000 into the millions.
