My husband and I (along with our 2 small children) are planning on building a home (by Handler) in this new community. The only lots left are ones backed up to the Golf Course, the clubhouse and the main road. We are thinking of picking a lot backed to the golf course, but I am wondering if we should be concerned about golf balls hitting our home, or even our children?

Anyone have any idea about this particular community/golf course? Any other thoughts?

They will be building Phase 2 in the future, but just not sure when and IF they will still be offering the incentives then that they are offering now.

Thanks for any input...

I looked at the Ryan homes in Odessa National...it seems like that development came just at the wrong time. Development there has been slow and people were promised things about the golf course and membership that was untrue.
I don't know how Capano or Handler fared in that ordeal, but the slow development of that course has put a bad taste in people's mouth.

If you live on a course, of course, there is some risk. The golfers are generally responsible for their ball that they hit, regardless of where it lands. However, enforcing the golfer to pay for that $500 window he smashed with an errant slice is a bit more difficult than you'd like, especially if you didn't see it or film it and especially if you weren't home when the damage occurred.

Also think about the privacy you give up by having your yard on the course...from sunrise to sunset, someone is bound to be within sight of your yard.

Found this sign on the web

People that generally buy on golf courses do so because they are avid golfers...being able to walk out on the course from your own yard at any time has benefits.

Thank you for your message. I did hear about the Capano deal. Apparently, like you said, people were being charged fees that they shouldn't have. (I think). I know for certain that it was related to Capano and I was told to stay away from that builder. I think we will go with Bestfield as the builder instead of Handler. We'll see....
