Best places to live near… golf courses

Whether you are a golfer yourself, or you have one in the family, it goes without saying that there’s no better place to live near than a golf course. When it comes to new build developments, they are often built out of town, which can often mean closer to the local 18-holes. We take a look at some of the new homes across the country where you can find a golf course literally a few minutes’ drive away.

The Berry Hill development near Mansfield, with Barratt Homes
This exciting new village development featuring 2, 3 and 4-bedroom homes is literally right next to open countryside. More than just homes, Berry Hill will include a brand-new village centre, a primary school, a community park, and a wildlife reserve. But what about the golf course we hear you ask? Well, the closest one is Coxmoor Golf Club, which is only a short drive away, less than ten minutes in fact. Coxmoor is a fabulously maintained, heathland course which was recently accredited with Championship venue status.

Lucas Gardens development in Shefford, from Redrow Homes
Perfectly placed for city commuters with it being only 40 minutes from Kings Cross by direct train from Arlesey train station nearby, and with good schools in walking distance, the Lucas Gardens development from Redrow Homes is handy for golfers too. Surrounded by delightful Bedfordshire countryside, and plentiful country parks and stately homes to visit, there are also two golf courses to enjoy! Yes, that’s right – two! Less than three miles away is RAF Henlow Golf Club, which is open to all despite being part of the airbase and offers a great value round of golf. The second is Cainhoe Woof Golf Club (formerly known as Beadlow Manor Golf Club), which is again less than 3 miles away and is easily accessible via the A507. It offers two 18-hole courses, an open practice ground, and a state-of-the-art driving range. One thing is for sure, there is no shortage of choice for golf fans in the area.


One of the homes for sale on the Lucas Gardens development is The Cambridge, a four-bedroom detached home with a detached garage, offering lots of space for busy families, finished to a high-quality specification. It’s available from £524,950. Family living is the focus to the downstairs of the property with a vast open-plan kitchen / dining area which stretches along the whole width of the rear of the property. There’s a separate utility room, downstairs cloakroom, and a lounge for that extra bit of peace. To the upstairs there are three double bedrooms, a single bedroom, and a family bathroom. The master bedroom comprises an en suite, while the second bedroom comes complete with fitted wardrobes.

The Orchards development in Droitwich Spa from Redrow Homes
With its Roman connections, Droitwich Spa is a charming Worcestershire town with easy access to both Worcester and Birmingham. The Orchards development of 2, 3, and 4-bedroom homes is south of the town and while the area offers plenty of options for sports and leisure, we’re pleased to say that there are also two golf courses nearby. The closest is the award-winning Gaudet Luce Golf & Leisure Complex, which offers members and visitors chance to play either 18, or 9 holes of golf. With a floodlit 350-yard driving range, it’s ideal for beginner golfers as much as the more experienced. They also have FootGolf and DiscGolf for some extra family fun!
Slightly further from The Orchards development, and just over 3.5 miles away, is Droitwich Golf Club with its fantastic history. It occupies well over 100 acres of beautiful Worcestershire countryside and provides a good test for golfers of all abilities.


The Amberley as seen above, is a 3-bedroom detached family home on The Orchards development from Redrow Homes, available from £334,995. Perfect for busy, growing families, it has considerably more space than your average three-bedroom home. There are three double bedrooms, a large lounge, and an extensive open-plan kitchen/diner for the family to gather in. The master bedroom features an en-suite shower room, and there is a downstairs cloakroom too.
