8 Finest Golf Communities in the US

The US is known for amazing golf courses. Some of them also have communities around them. In some instances, you can live right next to your favorite course.

For instance, you might find a luxury community in Scottsdale, AZ, with a golf course nearby. Arizona has become a golf destination over the past couple of decades.

We’ll take some time to discuss the best golf communities in America right now. You might think about moving to one of these if you can’t get enough of hitting the links. 


Located in Scottsdale, Estanic is a beautiful place. It’s a private, gated community with a course nearby. Tom Fazio designed the course, and the sunsets there are exquisite. You can also find tennis courts, swimming pools, basketball courts, and fine dining experiences. 


If you head to Florida, you will find some great golf as well. Isleworth is located in the Butler Chain of Lakes. Arnold Palmer designed the course there. There are cypress and oak trees all around, and the lakes offer all kinds of fun opportunities if you ever get tired of playing the course.


If Hawaii appeals to you, you might check out Kuki’o. This idyllic spot has 28 holes of golf, designed once again by Tom Fazio. You can also sail and take part in all kinds of other fun water activities. You can hike along a black sand beach or swim with the friendly dolphins. 

Ocean Reef Club

Back in Florida, the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo is certainly worthy of your attention. This community has a pair of championship-level courses designed by Robert Van Hagge. There is also a marina where you can charter boats to do some fishing for marlin or tarpon.

Plantation Bay Golf & Country Club

Sticking in Florida, you may also want to take a long look at Plantation Bay Golf & Country Club in Ormond. Steve Symers designed the course there, and there are pickleball courts and many miles of walking trails. You can spot all kinds of animals and plant life.

Reynolds Plantation

If you would prefer to spend some time in Georgia, this spot, located in Greensboro, has no less than six signature courses. Tom Fazio, Rees Jones, Jack Nicklaus, and Bob Cupp all had a hand in their design. You will also find four nearby marinas for all kinds of water activities.

Sea Island

Still in Georgia, Sea Island is a calm, tranquil place, but the golf there is mighty challenging. You get five miles of private beach, where you can contemplate what went wrong on the 15th hole, which confounds even some of the pros who play this course.

Spanish Peaks

If you head to Big Sky, Montana, you’lll find Spanish Peaks, an exclusive community with enormous ski slopes nearby. You can ride horses, go white water rafting, and enjoy some fishing if you ever want to take a break from golf.

Think about which one of these choices seems like the best fit for you.
