Top 10 Golfer Retirement Spots

I recently started playing golf, I have a huge blister on my right thumb from gripping it too hard, but I’m starting to get that itch. Golf is hard but it’s extremely rewarding and it’s easy to see why retirees would enjoy the sport, especially if you have plenty of time to practice and hone your skills. Even if you’re not a golf fanatic, the spots listed are still fine spots to retire because golf courses are often designed and installed in idyllic locations anyway. 🙂

Here are the top ten, in no particular order:

  • Auburn, Ala.
  • Bonita Springs, Fla.
  • Charlotte, N.C.
  • Georgetown, Texas
  • Lemont, Ill.
  • Mount Pleasant, S.C.
  • Portland, Ore.
  • Rancho Mirage, Calif.
  • St. George, Utah
  • Sun City, Ariz.
