5 Surprising Benefits of Living in a Golf Community

Posted on

Is making the move to a golf community A PART OF the next big chapter in your life? 

If so, there’s no doubt you’ve thought about it and talked about it. You’ve likely done your research, looking into locations, amenities, and a whole range of factors that matter to you. Whatever stage of the decision-making process you’re at, there’s a lot to consider!

At Silvergate Homes, we understand the amount of time and effort that goes into a decision like this. Much like the consideration you put into your research, we use the same thoughtful discernment when choosing a location for our new developments in the Niagara Region. 

And Legends on the Green — an exclusive community located steps away from Legends on the Niagara golf course in Niagara Falls — is a perfect example of the care and attentiveness we deliver with every development.

Legends on the Green also happens to offer a glimpse of all the advantages that come with golf course living — so let’s dive right into those perks! Here are five fantastic benefits of living in a golf community.

1. You’re Surrounded by Nature

Nature is always at its best in golf course communities. Properties tend to offer a combination of beautifully landscaped sites beside natural forests or woodlands with long stretches of unoccupied space and spectacular vistas.

It’s also a given that golf courses are meticulously well-maintained — and you can expect the same from a golf community. Just imagine waking up every morning to sweeping views of undulating fairways, sparkling water features, and immaculate greens framed by dense forest brush, just steps away.

The carefully cultivated turf that makes up a golf course also acts as an attractive home for wildlife. Legends on the Niagara, for example, is situated next to the Niagara River — a bio diverse area that attracts a variety of birds and local animal species. Living close by at Legends on the Green means you’ll have plenty of opportunities for relaxing nature walks right in your own backyard.

  1. It’s Easy to Live an Active Lifestyle

Having convenient access to a world-class golf course means you’re more likely to be active regularly; all you have to do is grab your bags and hit the greens! And since there’s no commute, you can sleep in and still catch those optimal tee times.

Additionally, there’s so much more than just golf in these communities. Legends on the Green is only a stone’s throw from the Niagara Parkway, where you can explore the Niagara River Recreation Trail, with its many majestic views, by bike or on foot. With options like this on your doorstep, you’ll be endlessly inspired to get outdoors and get your steps in. 

  1. The Neighbours Share Similar Interests

Combined with the exclusivity of the community itself, you’re perfectly poised to connect with like-minded peers. This makes for an incredible feeling of camaraderie and community. It’s always easy to find a foursome, and why not celebrate your success (perhaps?) on the greens with a neighbourly BBQ!

  1. You’ll Have Peace of Mind (& Peace and Quiet)

These types of lots are typically the most in demand at golf course communities, and fortunately Legends on the Green still has a number available in its third phase.

Another major perk of golf course living is the serenity and relaxation that comes with it. Golf is a daytime game and once the sun goes down, you’re free to enjoy your privacy, peace, and quiet all evening long. 


  1. It Comes with a Prestigious Address

All this makes the community enjoyable to live in, and it also has a positive effect on the resale value of your property. Homes in golf communities are typically in high demand due to the views, amenities, and tight-knit community atmosphere.
