Tee Off Whenever It Suits You

This is the most obvious and popular reason for golf course living in Marbella. The golf course is right on your doorstep, so all you have to do is load up your golf buggy and hit the greens. Many of the luxury golf resorts in the Marbella area also offer additional perks to golf playing residents, which makes your new home even more appealing. Some of the busier golf courses do require you to give some notice in order to secure a tee time, but they always prioritise residents’ preferences above members who don’t live within the golf community.

Safety First

Golf resorts more often than not, employ their own security guards and system, so you can rest assured that your property will be secure at all times, even when you are not around. Gates, surveillance cameras and trained guards, amongst other things, ensure that no unwanted people are able to enter the grounds. Apart from that, buying golf course homes in a luxury resort often means the golf players making use of the greens are a lively crowd. Another added bonus, especially if you will be heading out for a game of golf alone.

Stunning Views

Another popular reason for buying a home around a golf course in Marbella,  is of course the view. This is due to the fact that in the Marbella area, apartments and villas are often built on hills which means you have the opportunity to take advantage of stunning panoramic golf views. Not only the well-designed golf courses, but also the many gardens, pools, streams and occasionally a little lake are an aesthetic treat for the eye. It’s that bit of extra scenery when you dine on your terrace, which really makes golf course living such a treat.

Plenty Of Choice

There is a surprising amount of variation in the types of golf course homes for sale. You can buy an apartment which is set a short distance away from the greens for more privacy, or you can buy a stand alone villa right next to the tee if you prefer a front line location on a golf course in Marbella. Some of the urbanizations have communal facilities such as a pool, others have private ones. Basically, there’s a property for every taste and for every budget.

Not Just For Golf Lovers

Although this may seem to be a contradiction of the first point in this article, another benefit of living on a golf course is the fact it also suits non golfers perfectly. Families with children are also attracted to the residential neighbourhoods in golf resorts for their safety, beauty and quality. And with all these things in mind, golf properties are also an excellent investment, should you want to later sell, or rent your property. Especially around jet set Marbella, your property will still hold it’s value, when you decide to sell up.
