If you are an avid golf player, then you will want to add “bird watching,” or visiting a wildlife habitat to your list of activities to enjoy when you play one of the Northshore’s seven different golf courses in St. Tammany Parish.  Of course, you can enjoy nature at any golf course on which you play, but in Southeast Louisiana, you get to see more than a fair amount of feathery and forest friends.  This is because these golf course communities are located within The Lake Pontchartrain Basin, a combination of waterways, lakes, wetlands, and swamps which have a dense population of many different types of wildlife “per square foot!”  As a result, on these golf courses in St. Tammany Parish, you can expect to find diverse water features as well.

St. Tammany Parish offers several different cities from which to choose if you are looking for a home in a golf course community.   One of the oldest golf courses in Covington, LA is the Covington Country Club.  Facilities in this master-planned community have just recently been upgraded due to new ownership.  Also, there is still some new construction available for those interested in buying a new home.  If you are looking for an existing home for sale in Covington Country Club, there are definitely homes being put on the market on a regular basis.  Another golf course community in Covington, Louisiana, is Tchefuncta Country Club, which is only a couple of years old. This new home community has several different builders building new homes in the subdivision.  Also, you can submit your own home design / builder for approval in order to purchase a lot in the neighborhood to build your own home.

In West St. Tammany Parish, there are two other golf course home communities available – Money Hill in Abita Springs and Beau Chene in Mandeville, Louisiana.  Of the two, Beau Chene is a more established subdivision that is pretty much “built out” when it comes to new construction, however there is a lot of activity in this community for resale opportunities as people are constantly moving in and moving out.  Money Hill is still featuring new construction homes for sale and is still building out new lot phases. So, if you are interested in  building your own home,  this would definitely be a good choice.

Three other golf courses home communities are located in Slidell, Louisiana – Oak Harbor Golf ClubPinewood Country Club, and Royal Golf Club.  These 3 golf course subdivisions are older, established neighborhoods with homes mostly for resale.  In addition to being a golf course community, Oak Harbor is also located directly on Lake Pontchartrain.  So, in this neighborhood, you can “have the best of both worlds,” by being able to live in a golf course community and live on the water.

Whichever community or location you choose, living in St. Tammany Parish on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain will offer you an excellent, nationally-rated school system, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, and a small town lifestyle which still has access to everything that is offered in the Greater New Orleans area.  Also, St. Tammany Parish is renowned for having some of the area’s best builders who build high-end, quality homes with tons of interior and exterior amenities.  So, live the dream today in St. Tammany Parish; find your perfect home in the golf course community of your choice.
