Those are fees alright. I didn't think they were that high. I guess when I look at the taxes I pay here in PA it is a push but I had thought bottom line I would save money by moving to a lower cost area. I am a golfer so that is in my equation. The guy I met at the Philly airport spoke about $4,600 at Sea Trail all in (greens fees, carts, etc.). I have time, thanks for the information, I hope this information hangs around.

Just a comment:

I live in a 1st tier suburb of Mpls near our city lakes chain. This is a very affluent area. Homes are built very well - much better than a most new homes are built today. This is obviously a regional take on homes. New alternatives generally mean driving much further out and then the fact that the house in new does not mean it is better. I would venture to guess that most of those people would buy here in a second if they could. Homes sell fast here mainly because of location, quality and we have one of the best school systems.

He had indicated to me that his yearly charge for him and his wife for unlimited golf was $4,600 which included greens fees and carts. He said he averages 2-3 rounds a week and his wife does also. Has his pick of three tracks there.

My "spidey-sense" tingles on $4,600 annually at Sea Trail for 2 peeps, unlimited play, inclusive of carts, and 3 course choices. I'd love to hear that verified.

We loved SJP - but unless you golf every day - the fees are too high for us - which is why we bought into Ocean Ridge Plantation - no mandatory fees and just HOA's of about $900 a year I think???

My wife and I also do not golf a lot. We pay by the drink and thus don't have to pay the one-time membership and monthly fees. It is just personal preference, but there is a lot to do at SJP even if you don't play a lot of golf. You can use the pool at the beach club and the beach club facilities.
