I have several friends that own homes that back up to a golf course. In their experience, there is not a great deal of noise, but rather the contrary. They find it is peaceful and they enjoy the beautiful view. In their opinion, an occasional errant golf ball is a small price to pay for the scenic view and sense of open space. However, as noted in other responses, this is a matter of personal opinion. Ultimately, the seller may set the listing price but it is the buyer that determines the value of the prospective property.

Our area is surrounded by gold courses and value is in the eye of the beholder. Those who love golf might put up with any noise or other factors for the sake of the view and convenience. For the hoildays,we see great fireworks on our neighboring golf courses. I'm not a golfer so for me I'd prefer living near a cemetary.

Agreed I was just curious if sellers think there is a premium to be paid for such a location. I pointed out the cons but there are certainly pros no doubt

Generally speaking, it all depends on the location of the house. It's appealing to have Nothing but Green + No neighbors, but if your house is near an area that gets more shanked balls than other areas, than the property value may be of a lesser value. Bad location or not, it's better than a neighbor from Hell.

Depends on personal preferences, keep in mind that a property is worth what someone is willing to pay for it....

Obviously, a Golf Course house is not appropriate for you.
They are for many people, and just like waterfront property, there aren't enough to go around.
