Affordable Golf Communities For Retirement Living

Once thought of as a luxury reserved only for the wealthiest homeowners, golf course communities today are found in a wide variety of price ranges and locations. While some of the more elite and prestigious golf communities remain beyond the budget of many retirees, a number of residential golf properties are reasonably priced and may be considered to be among the most affordable and best places to retire in the U.S.

In fact, before the current economic downturn, there was a growing trend by developers of manufactured home communities and affordably-priced retirement communities to include golf courses as one of their primary amenities. Whether you prefer an inland locale such as the mountains of western North Carolina or the more "links" style courses of a coastal area, the selections listed here should meet the requirements of the most discerning golfer.

This page also includes detailed profiles of specific cities and small towns where golf remains accessible and affordable for the average retiree and that our editors consider among the best places to retire for the serious golfer.
