It offers the Pinehurst resorts, where you can have a family membership at 9 championship courses for about $500/month (including a US Open Course), as well as several other upscale gated private clubs and semi-private golf communities, The cost for memberships at all of the local clubs is given at the top of this website homepage.

With thousands of clubs and golf retirement communities to choose from -it can be challenging to find what works best for the majority of all golfers.
Eighteen years ago, when I was a two handicap golfer in New Jersey, I went through a 6 month search to find the best golf retirement community.
I searched all over Florida, but found the majority of areas too crowded. I also decided that the weather (with fears of hurricanes and humid/hot temperature) was not a good fit for me.
I love the shore communities - but with expensive/increasing hurricane insurance, and way too much traffic during the summer months, I continued with my search for the ideal retirenment community.

The Holly Course, designed by Gary Player, is a panoramic beauty that offers a challenge to high handicappers as well as the serious championship caliber players.
This is an 18-hole Mike Strantz course.
