Developing Golf Communities



Developing Golf Communities
11-24-2006
Investors that re looking for a new business opportunity often times turn to the game of golf to satisfy their needs. This is a trend that has always been popular, but one that has begun to take off more so in recent years. These investors have found that building golf courses in an area that is in need can be a great way to make money. In fact, they have found that any golf course even with competition in surrounding areas can still be a hit.

The most popular areas for this type of development are in the south. The fact of the matter is that southern states are sunny year round, so it only makes sense for developers to head to this region. After all, why would they cut themselves out of profit by building in a state that suffers harsh winters?

The first step to developing these courses is for an investor to find a parcel of land that they can build on. This may seem like an easy enough task, but when it comes down to it there are always a few problems that these people run into. Not only do they have to find enough land to use, but they must also make sure that it is zoned to proper specifications. Even then things can get dicey because nearby residents may be put off by the idea of increased in their neighborhood.

From there, investors then make a decision on what exactly they are going to do with the land. In most cases, a golf course is only the start of things. These people also move forward with the selling of lots so that residential homes can be built on the course as well. To take this a step further, they must also budget for the clubhouse, as well as any extras that they are going to add. This includes things such as a restaurant, driving range, and practice greens.

As you can see, developing golf communities is much more than simply building a course and waiting for the players to show up. There are a lot of financial and legal details that go into this process, as well as steps to ensure the overall completion of the project.

Overall, as long as there are investors and spare land there will always be new golf communities popping up; this holds especially true for areas of the country with good weather year round.
