Affordable Golf Course Living Does Not Mean Ho-Hum Golf

Managing Real Estate Broker with LoKation Real Estate

Affordable Golf Course Living Does Not Mean Ho-Hum Golf - There are dozens of Golf Course Murphy Creek Golf CourseCommunities in and around the Denver metro area, as an avid golfer for over 40 years and a Denver native of 50+ years and 10 years in the golf industry prior to getting into real estate I have had the pleasure of playing almost every course in the front range.

My focus as an agent has been low maintenance golf course living on "affordable" golf courses, meaning most of the courses I focus on are public courses and are typically within a few miles of the 470 Beltway. Easily accessible and for the most part home prices under $2M.

1281 CoolidgeI recently sold a home in the Murphy Creek community, a beautiful 3200+ square foot, 3 bed, 3 bath 2-story with fully finished basement, on a large lot just steps from the course, the sales price $425K, very hard to find a home of this quality under $500K inside the 470 loop, let alone in a golf community, but Murphy Creek is one of those rare communities.

And Murphy Creek is one of the most challenging public courses in the Denver area and even played host to the 2008 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. I try to get out and play this course at least once every year and was fortunate to have played it late last fall when the colors were spectacular. The course itself plays 7548 yards from the tips, and a rating and slope of 74.7/140 which is not for the faint of heart. The course also has five different tees and three additional tee configurations for players of all abilities.

I am always up for a game of golf and good conversation so if you are ever looking for someone to play with, let me know, I'll make myself available, and it can be any course in the area, I'd be happy to show you around. Or if you just want to take a peak at other golf communities be my guest.

If you are a new agent and finding the road more difficult than you thought, please send me a note and I would be happy to help.

I enjoy helping agents to find their niche!

These are some beautiful communities, John.  I would live there even if I didn't play golf.
