A fantasy for many golfers is to live on a golf course, spending every free minute playing their favorite sport or watching other golfers to learn from their techniques.

Nongolfers often enjoy living beside the greens, too, preferring to admire the lush sweep of grass and the country club lifestyle that usually accompanies a golf course residence.

While golf course homes can be priced in the stratosphere, many are surprisingly affordable, allowing middle-income families to live a life with clubhouse social events, swimming pools, tennis courts and, of course, easy access to golf.

Following is a sampling of some golf course communities near Washington.


Bayside, the new residential community under development by the Carl M. Freeman Communities near Fenwick Island, surrounds an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course.

The par-72 course features salt marshes, meadows and woodlands, with views of the Assawoman Bay coastline and Ocean City on the opposite shore. The course runs from 5,200 to 7,400 yards with multiple sets of tees for golfers of every skill level. Practice facilities at Bayside include a driving range, a putting green and a chipping green.

The focal point for the community will be the Bayside Village Center, a downtown area with restaurants, clothing and antique shops and conveniences such as supermarket and a neighborhood bank.

The Bayside Recreation Center will also be located at the Bayside Village Center and will include a fitness center, tennis courts, swimming pools and social activities. Hiking and biking trails and nature trails will be designed into the community, and water sports will also be available to residents.

A shuttle will provide frequent trips to the beach for residents.

Eventually Bayside will have 1,640 homes, including condominiums priced from the $350,000s to $500,000s, town homes priced from $420,000s to the $480,000s, and single-family homes priced from the $460,000s to the $800,000s.
