As Covid-19 spread, regulations changed, and facilities closed, opened and closed again, a single thing has remained. Experts agree that golfing is one activity that carries little risk of spreading the virus. And since the pandemic’s onset, golf has boomed.
With few leisure options, an uptick in free time, and the growing need to get out of the house, golf offers a great breath of fresh air.
Home sales have reflected this shift as well. Residential golf club communities, like The Landings, have seen a huge surge in demand. But it’s not all for the love of golf–open spaces, outdoor activities, and warm weather all play a part in the decision to make the move. Plus, private neighborhoods offering limited access to outsiders and tourists help make residents feel insulated from the virus.
An article from The Wall Street Journal explains some of the reasoning for relocating to a golf community, giving first-hand accounts of stir-crazy families wanting to leave the city without running the risk of traveling or visiting shared spaces. Planned retirement moves were fast-tracked, and dreams of warm weather were turned into realities.
For The Landings Club newcomers, six championship golf courses, exclusive dining options, an expansive fitness center and access to court sports helped seal the deal. And in a pandemic world, why not live on an island, in one of the top residential golf communities in the Southeast?
