Hello!

Does anyone have experience with "golf course" living. Looking at a house on a golf course fairway in Winston Trials.

The only thing you will have to watch out for is golf balls. Clubs when its wet out and you live near a tee. Also some people have problems with golfers peeing in their yards or walking into their yards to hit their ball. If you get a home on the course you will not have neighbors behind you which is nice. Some golf courses do not allow you to put up a fence, so privacy issues from the golfers can be an issue for some people. You can enjoy living on a golf course.

Default Children??

Do you have children?? If so, look closely at the schools Winston Trails is zoned for. It is in a good area but they have been screwed a couple of times over the years by rezoning...just thought I'd let you know.....

Winston Trails is not in West Palm Beach. It is in West Boynton.

I have played on that course before and I did not notice any problems.

The worst problem you will most likely run into is someone possibly smashing one of your windows with a golf ball by accident.

Lake Worth- correct? Yes to children; PBCSD boundaries as of now have A rated but who knows what happens when they screw with the boundaries again... Also, would the gold course be for WT residence only?

Winston Trails is in Lake Worth, "A" rated schools and the golf course is for public use and so is the restaurant.

If you buy a house on a golf course make sure it is along the side of teh course adn not at the end where the course turns. Otherwise balls hit long will go into your house. You still haev to worry about balls going off to the left or right if you live on the side but it's not as bad as living at the end of a straitaway (they call them fairways or am I thinking of something else?). My grandmother lived on a golf course for a few yearas and her car had some dents in it that looked like they could have come from golf balls. Make sure you have a garage and ALWAYS park your car inside.

Just to clarify, it uses a Lake Worth address but is is not within the city limits of Lake Worth. It is an unincorporated area of the county commonly referred to as 'West Boynton'. They should just incorporate the area out west and call it that.

I live in Smith Farm and it also uses a Lake Worth address (33467), but I think it is really considered Wellington. Is this true?
