Florida Golf Membership
Top 5 Decisions You Need to Make Before Selecting a Golf Membership in Florida
So, you’ve decided that a Florida Golf Membership is in your near future. That’s great, because you’ve come to the right place! Here at Golf Life Navigators we specialize in helping you find your best-matched golf club for everything you desire in the Ideal Golf Lifestyle!
To search on your own could take you years of surfing the web, talking to friends, making visits to clubs – not to mention a lot of wasted money. Especially if you end up joining a club that isn’t right for you!
Here are the top 5 factors you should consider when making the transition to your ideal Florida golf community:
1) Location: So, where do you start?
Well, it all depends. Are you looking for the hometown feel of the Sarasota area, the busy lifestyle of Palm Beach County, or the smooth waters of Naples? Maybe the beach isn’t for you and you’re just looking for the warm Florida weather that Orlando offers, so your grandkids can come visit and go to Disney.
Deciding on your perfect location is one of the many ways that our ProGuide3 questionnaire helps people like you find the right club for your ideal lifestyle. Having friends that may already live in Florida is a perfect way to get a great understanding of the area. You also can call us at Golf Life Navigators – we’re your trusted advisor and we can help you identify the area of the state that best fits your lifestyle.
Once you decide on that area, now let’s decide where your club is ideally located. Do you want to live 10 miles from the Airport? Less than five miles from the beach, or from a hospital? These are all important questions that are covered in our ProGuide3.
2) Budget: How much are you willing to spend to get what you want?
With more than 1,200 clubs in Florida you can find exactly what you’re looking, with initiations between $0 and more than $500,000. It all depends on your location and how exclusive you would like the club to be. So, establishing your budget is critical when you’re looking to discover the Ideal Golf Lifestyle.
Not to mention what kind of Membership you’re looking for? Equity? Non-Equity? Bundled (purchasing a home that includes a golf membership)?
3) Golf: Obviously!
So, within the ProGuide3 we’ll help you discover everything you’re looking for in a golf club community. What’s your handicap? For instance, if you’re a low handicapper we can assist you in finding clubs that have a group of other low handicappers.
How many holes would you like? 18? 27? 36? What about 54? There are so many options when it comes to the courses you want to play every day!
4) Social: We can’t play golf every hour of every day (even if we wanted to)!
What are the clubs within the clubs? Knowing that some spouses don’t play golf as much as you do means we need to make sure they will be just as happy at the club as you are. So, what activities interest you? Bocce Ball? Tennis? Hanging out by the resort-style pool while being served by the outside bar? These are all things that Golf Life Navigators takes into account in our ProGuide3.
Also, which clubs have casual dining? Clubs understand now that people don’t always want to change out of their jeans to come to the club, so finding these clubs that will allow you to just be yourself can be a huge factor in your discovery.
Our goal? Help you experience your best-matched club. It’s that simple!
5) Health and Wellness: We’re not getting any younger!
Clubs have evolved so much since our parents were joining back in the day. Some clubs have begun adding spa services and gyms to their amenities. And since so many people are health conscience these days, this active lifestyle has spilled over into the kitchen. So, many clubs have added special dishes for those of you looking to cut calories or trying to get a great nutritional meal.
Now that’s not saying that they’ve left the burgers or pizza off the menu, but it is nice to have the options!
As you can see, within the top 5 decisions you need to make before joining a club in Florida, there are many micro decisions you have to make. This is why we created Golf Life Navigators – to grow the game of golf and to increase the excitement you get when the cold front comes back bringing a few snow flurries at your northern club.
