Las Vegas might be located in a desert, but thanks to Lake Mead, the city boasts 15 beautiful golf communities with residential homes, townhouses, and condominiums.

Living in a golf course community offers several benefits to golf enthusiasts, such as easy access to a course, reduced fees, and special privileges.

Golf community residents also have the opportunity to socialize with other golfers and business professionals and participate in golf-related tournaments and other social events.

Golf Communities Defined

Simply put, golf course communities are residential neighborhoods that are built around a golf course.

However, most golf communities offer more than just golf. They also have recreational facilities, swimming pools, tennis courts, and restaurants.
