Despite the closing of courses across the country, many builders are enjoying success with golf-based communities. Here are some recent openings and renovations:

–At the 2,000-acre Boot Ranch in Fredericksburg, Texas, a multi-generational club membership extends to five generations of family, allowing parents, grandparents, kids and grandkids to fully partake of the private golf facilities. Course architect and former PGA Tour star Hal Sutton recently oversaw a $2 million renovation of the course he originally designed 12 years ago and developer Terra Verde Group invested another $1 million in an 18-hole, 35,000-square-foot putting park aimed at all ages of golfers and golfers-to-be.

–The Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course at Red Ledges in Heber, Utah, recently added a new set of “Golden Bear” tees, placed to help new golfers—including many retirees who now have time to take up the game—ease into their new playing experience. The community includes a 12-hole Golf Park, also designed by Nicklaus, that offers a low-key, fun outing for both novice and expert golfers and doubles as an area for soccer, Frisbee, dog-walking, and kite-flying.
