I agree with this. And to add, TV is hanging on by their fingernails in terms of having enough golf courses for residents, at least in peak season. They'd be nuts to sacrifice a golf course for housing. Not to mention it would be expensive. They'd have to reconfigure streets, water mains, etc., I don't see it.

I know the water view lots are"temporary", just look at the Google Earth pictures and you can see. I will do a little research as you suggested thanks

Default Thanks to all

Thanks to everyone for their opinions! We were up in TV on Monday and looked a number of homes. Have not pulled the trigger yet, but stay tuned. We do have the paralysis of analysis technique , but we settle on March 5, 2021 (some rent back) so they will throw us out soon......LOL

Default Enjoy life

You should enjoy life purchase something you like and don't worry about it. if you can afford $500 to $700,000 for a house on a golf course. Then if they decide to develop it really doesn't matter if you lose 50 or 100,000 10 years from today because all your home values will have going up. And even if it doesn't you'll just sell and move somewhere else that's what people do in life. Meanwhile you have had 10 years of a great retirement. Welcome to Central Florida home of zero income taxes lots of golf and lots of golf carts

It happened when we lived in Palm Coast. Matanzas Woods golf course was closed & it turned into weeds. I don't know what they did with the land. It happens quite often if there is no money to keep the course open.
They had 4 golf courses. When you joined your membership included all 4 courses. You paid one time initial fee. The courses were sold. They closed Matanzas Woods, another the City purchased & made it into a public golf course. Your membership was stopped. If you wanted to join a course you had to put down another one time initial fee.
You never know. Housing developments with minimum 3 acres size can be turned into a townhouse complex just by changing the restrictions on the property. Look at a project as large as the pipeline just shutdown with an executive order.

A friend of ours in Orlando was just told that they are discontinuing the golf course which he sits upon.

In the Leesburg area of Silver Lake, a Country Club and course closed a few years ago. There were nice homes around the course. It’s now a goat grazing area. It can happen. That said, I’m not saying that’s going to happen here in The Villages (not during our lifetime) and would take “book” on that.

Currently.
When we were young, many Boomers were too busy to golf.
So many Villagers have taken up golf at retirement.


IF the demand changes, it will be after we are gone.

My two sons and I belonged to 3 different country clubs up north, they all have more members now than when I belonged and most of the new members are in their 30's and 40's with them come their kids taking lessons and getting on the kids leagues. It's still a great industry in most areas of the country.

If the value of a GC lot is $300,000 or so then What is the value of a Courtyard Villa Lot fronting on the Golf Course....with water...Does it matter if it is Championship or Executive?

Not many for sale between 466 and 44
