Golf Estates – Some of the Best Places to Live

Golf Estates – Some of the Best Places to Live

Golf estates have become the leading real estate phenomenon of the 21st Century in South Africa. And there is good reason for their growing popularity – they offer peaceful, protected luxury living for you and your family, whether ardent golfer or not.

A safe haven in times of crime

Golf estate property is an investors dream as they not only offer safe havens in an turbulent ocean of crime but the maintenance and upkeep of the manicured gardens, fairways and greens are the responsibility of the Body Corporate of the estate.

This community involvement in the maintenance of the golf estate will generally mean that your golf property is likely to improve in value in leaps and bounds over time. There is little doubt that investing in one of the hundreds of golf estates that dot the South African landscape will be a shrewd and lucrative move on your part.

Possibly the pick of golf real estate lies in two distinct areas, both of which are attractive tourist destinations – the fabled Garden Route of the Cape and the mystical bushveld to the north of the country.

Versatile range of Garden Route golf real estate

The Garden Route has a versatile range of golf real estate to choose from, so whether Mossel Bay, George or Plettenberg Bay is your preferred choice of urban centre, rest assured there is a luxurious and tranquil golf estate close by.

The developers of golf estates are also particularly aware of their responsibility to the environment and design the golf course and adjoining homes in harmony with nature so as not to interfere too much with the sustainability of the region. This leaves bird and animal life to prosper, making golf course property a veritable paradise to live in.

Most leading golf estates are a fine blend of glorious green fairways, indigenous fynbos and magnificent ocean and mountain vistas along the Garden Route, or pristine bush, jam-packed with a vast selection of wild and woolly creatures in the case of the northern offerings.

No unauthorised access

These estates are generally fenced communities with 24 hour security limiting access to the entire property. Sadly, South Africans have been under the cosh of rampant crime, even since its emancipation, and we all have to think long and hard about our family’s security. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that golf real estate is one of the safest options for you and your kids.

So if you are keen to enjoy a life of tranquility, added security and unlimited access to the great outdoors, consider purchasing golf real estate property today.
