Phoenix Arizona Golf Course Retirement Communities are very popular with retirees. The promise of over 300 days of sunshine, mild weather, an active lifestyle and a low cost of living attract many seniors to these Active Adult Senior Communities. The oldest and largest being Del Webb’s Sun City Retirement Community with close to 26,000 homes. High lights of this community include affordable homes, one of the lowest yearly recreation fees, 7 recreation centers, 11 golf courses and 7 pools. There is a floor plan for everyone in Sun City with over 300 different floor plans to choose from. Homes for sale in Sun City range from $50,000 to over $700,000.
Sun City West Retirement Community was the next community Del Webb built in 1978. Smaller with almost17,000 homes, Sun City West attracted a younger retiree. Sun City West is centered around a town center sprawling out in a circle. You can get almost anywhere in the community on a golf cart within 15 minutes. Sun City West has 4 recreation centers, 9 golf courses and 6 pools. Pickle ball and of course golf are big there along with lots of clubs and activities. Homes for sale in Sun City West are a similar range to Sun City. Their yearly recreation fees however are higher than Sun City but still extremely reasonable.
Several other Active Adult Retirement Communities have been built over the years in the Valley of the Sun some of the most well know include Sun City Grand, Pebble Creek (a gated Community in Goodyear), Corte Bella (known as the Country Club Retirement Community) and Arizona Traditions.
Golf Retirement Communities in Phoenix are still being built with most located in outlying areas. These more remote newer Retirement Communities include CantaMia, Sun City Festival and Trilogy. CantaMia is a lake focused Retirement Community and a sub division of the Estrella Mountain Community in Goodyear. It does not have a golf course, which isn’t a problem for most residence, as the closest is a convenient few miles away. As with the original Del Webb communities, businesses and working families will move in supporting these newer active adult communities. The future is bright with boomers retiring every day to Phoenix Arizona Retirement Communities.
