In Ruidoso we have a few golf communities. Cree Meadows is an areas where you can find some deals. Memberships are low and the green are beautiful. In this area you do have neighbors.

Alto is north of Ruidoso and offers a community where golf is important. Homes here tend to be on the high end, but today you can find homes a prices lower then we have seen in years, but membership in Alto is not cheap. Talks of purchasing a second course is going to add value, if it happens.

It would be hard to say if golf communities are a better buy then non golf. I think it would depend on if you play golf. If a golf membership is something you would not use, I feel it would be an added expense that non golf would not have.

I hope this is a help.

Best wishes, Ms Annie

I dont live personally in a golf course community but my home sits up against a golf course. My block is desired as the view is nice and there are no other homes there. So from my experience it can be helpful.
