Best Golf Course Communities In Houston TX

19 Best Golf Course Communities or Golf Course Views Within 35 Minutes Of Downtown Houston

best golf course communities in houston

houston golf course communities mapLiving in a golf course community in Houston can offer some excellent benefits, including:

  • Outstanding views;
  • Immediate access to your favorite hobby;
  • Quality home in a secured neighborhood;
  • Like-minded neighbors;
  • Shared country club or community center.

However, there can also be some material risks. One of the biggest risks is buying a home on a golf course that goes under.

According to the National Golf Foundation, for the last nine years, more golf courses closed than opened in the U.S.

If you’re looking at buying a home on a golf course, it’s important to consider the quality of the community (and the golf course) in addition to the quality and value of the home.

Since there are so few true “Golf Course Communities in Houston” within Houston’s Inner Loop, or Beltway 8 (most are in the suburbs), we’ve also included Houston neighborhoods that are adjacent to well-ranked golf courses.

Each of the following 19 luxury neighborhoods feature a well-ranked golf course and are within 35 minutes of Houston’s Inner Loop.*

These golf course communities and neighborhoods in close proximity to golf courses in Houston are grouped by location (Inner Loop, Inside the Beltway, Outside the Beltway) and listed alphabetically.

For detailed information and personal recommendations that meet your specific needs, contact Paige Martin, head of the Houston Properties Team.
