Golf Course Community
A GOLF COURSE COMMUNITY is a type of residential housing development built around a golf course . HISTORYTemple Terrace, Florida is of the first planned golf-course communities in the United States , dating from the 1920s. The community was intended only for the very wealthy who would reside there for an only a few months of the year during the winter. For example, the original homes were built without kitchens as it was planned that they would dine at the community clubhouse. As golf became a sport also played by the middle class of the United States by the 1950s and 1960s, golf course communities also were developed for those players. During a period of "boom growth" in United States golf courses in the 1960s, approximately 25% of courses built each year were developed as a part of a real estate development. That percentage rose to 60% during the 1990s as "master planned golf communities" grew in popularity
