For Sale! Homes on Golf Courses

Golf isn’t the only reason to take a swing at living on the links
Redmond home on a golf course

For golfers, a short walk to the first tee is motivation enough to live on or near a golf course. But even those who don’t know the difference between a wedge and a driver happily pay a premium for the park-like view (without the crowds, noise and parking issues associated with the real thing), acres of maintenance-free lawn and, in some cases, access to a pool, clubhouse and more.
