Fiddler’s Creek Included in Links Magazine’s 2008-09 America’s Premier Properties Listing-Best For Club Life

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

Links magazine has included Fiddler’s Creek in its America’s Premier Properties Listing for a second, consecutive year.

According to Links magazine, upscale golf communities have done better than expected in today’s slowing real estate market. One reason given is that upscale golf communities not only provide a physical home and surroundings, they also spoil their residents with amenities that can’t be quantified.

As Links describes, great clubs provide a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere in which members can enjoy their golfing lifestyle with family and friends. Whether dining, playing tennis or a round of golf, clubs are the centerpiece for members to gather and socialize. This aspect of the community is a strong draw for many residents whose lifestyles are centered around the clubhouse.

Fiddler’s Creek is one of just 16 communities voted “Best for Club Life” in this year’s listing. The communities in this category have shown to give residents the best foundation to come together and enjoy the company and camaraderie of their fellow members.

Fiddler’s Creek Included in T&L Golf’s America’s Top 100 Golf Communities Listing for 2009

Travel & Leisure Golf magazine has included Fiddler’s Creek in their annual listing of America’s Top 100 Golf Communities for a second, consecutive year.

The January/February 2009 issue of Travel & Leisure Golf showcases the listing highlighting communities boasting superb golf, luxury residences, extraordinary locations and a myriad of lifestyle options.

According to Travel & Leisure Golf magazine, eligible communities for Top 100 consideration must be able to offer property owners an opportunity for membership in an affiliated private golf club. Each community is reviewed by the following six criteria, in order of importance: golf amenity; residential architecture and style; location, including natural setting and proximity to cultural activities; management, service and programming options; non-golf amenities, such as a full service spa, equestrian center or marina; and environmental stewardship. For the 2009 listing, a concern for residential asset value, implicit in the previous years’ rankings, is of heightened value in the editors’ deliberations.
