La Quinta Country Club Series: 3. The Real Estate

The Lawrence Hughes designed championship golf course opened in 1959 and real estate soon followed.  Because each enclave of homes and neighborhoods were built  and developed over time, there are multiple HOA's. There are several gates to access the homes, some with guards, others with key/cards and clickers. The country club itself can only be accessed by car from its front gate, but you can drive  there from the neighborhoods in your golf cart. For newcomers it can be a bit puzzling to figure out.

From 2-3 bedroom condos to 4-5 bedroom luxury homes, there is an eclectic mix of properties at La Quinta Country Club.

When members first join the club, they almost always request a home on the golf course. ( Including us when we first purchased over 20 years ago. ) There is a premium that comes with that view, but sometimes, after a few years living on the course... buyers prefer more privacy off the course.  We have both!

I have always dismissed the beauty of your area while I was driving by on my way to San Diego.  I should really check it out sometime for myself though.  Is it mainly a retirement area or more diverse than that?

Golf communities are timeless and offer an active lifestyle with rolling hills and pristine fairways, the La Quinta Country Club is absolutely spectacular. I do enjoy the remote office as often as possible!
