Why is now a great time to buy the golf course home of your dreams? In the Las Vegas area there are over 50 golf courses with homes surrounding most of them. Currently Las Vegas has over 800 properties listed in golf communities that range in price from a condo at Lake Las Vegas for $39,000 (no, that’s not a typo) to an estate in McDonald Ranch for $15,900,000. There is literally something for everyone in every price range. Selecting a home within a golf course community can be a very personal experience. A community that meets your needs can include a view of the fabulous Las Vegas Strip, private golf club, recreational facilities with community rooms, pools, spas, walking paths, exercise facilities, media rooms, massage, on-site dining, hotels and even a Casino, many have scheduled events, entertainment venues and much, much more.
Living in the Las Vegas area is truly an experience with great shopping, restaurants, freeways and beltways that can get you just about anywhere in the valley in less than 20 minutes – however, many find that life away from the “Strip” is much the same as anywhere else they’ve ever lived, a real community. Many locals will tell you that they rarely go to the Strip except when company comes, but thankfully — it’s your choice. In the coming weeks, I’ll give you insight into the various areas that are often overlooked.
GOLF IN HENDERSON
The very first Master Planned Community in the Vegas Valley was Green Valley in Henderson. It was built in the 1970’s surrounding what is now the Wildhorse Golf Club, www.golfwildhorse.com. Wild Horse was built in 1959 and at one time owned by Hank Greenspun of the Las Vegas Sun and later by Howard Hughes. Previously on the PGA Tour as the Sahara Invitational, it is now a public course owned by the City of Henderson. (If you google this course, you’ll find it labeled as Paradise Valley Country Club.) This course was just re-designed to provide recent xeriscaping to both beautify the property and conserve water. Wildhorse offers an enjoyable round of golf at a reasonable price and is definitely a local’s favorite!
If you have interest in this golf community, there are only 91 properties that surround the course itself and possibly 5 vacant estate lots still available. While many of the homes are older, a many have undergone extensive makeovers. Interested? There are only a few properties available that have golf course frontage.
