News > Get a Golf Course View in Orange County

If you’re a golfer, no one needs to explain the attraction of a golf course condo. Living right on the links makes it quick and easy to get to the first tee. Many people own their own golf carts and just roll right up to the clubhouse in their signature vehicle. It doesn’t get any better than that! But there’s no need to be a golfer to enjoy living in a golf course view condo in Orange County. One great advantage is the expanse of well-manicured grass and trees right in your own backyard and you don’t have to lift a finger to keep it that way. The view itself often adds significant value to a home. Plus it’s fun to watch the golfers moving through their game right from your private patio or balcony.

Live Next to the Course Without Living In the Club

If you’re looking for a golf course view condo in Orange County, there are many condo and townhome options to choose from. You don't have to live IN a golf club or join one to enjoy the view. Big Canyon Mclain in Newport Beach,  for example, sits right on the edge of the Big Canyon Country Club, a private country club that requires member sponsorship to join. Big Canyon Mclain is a rustic contemporary condo community that offers residents a pool, spa and tennis courts.

Big Canyon Mclain was built in 1977 and has 61 two story townhome style condos with many units that overlook the golf course. These two and three bedroom homes have attached two car garages, fireplaces and private patios with verdant views of the golf course below. Some units are just a few yards from the fairway. This is a quiet, beautifully landscaped, gated community that’s just minutes from Balboa Island and Newport Beach.

Some condo developments are built to maximize the golf course views, like West Nine in Laguna Niguel. This fantastic south Laguna complex sits right on the El Niguel Country Club and has views of both the fairway and club’s lakes.  West Nine was built in 1971 and has a variety of two and three bedroom, single story condos, many with spectacular views. These homes feature floor to ceiling windows and private patios/balconies tailor made for enjoying the restful park like grounds. .

El Niguel is an award winning, member owned 18 hole championship golf course that was developed on land that was previously used for cattle ranching. The eye-popping terrain is enhanced by rolling hills, a state of the art irrigation system and three man-made lakes. If you’re looking for an Orange County Condo with a golf course view, West Nine will not disappoint. Best of all, even if you don’t play golf, El Niguel offers social memberships for those who enjoy the exclusive activities and dinners of a private club.

For the Full Golf Experience, Live in a Country Club

Orange County also has a few condo developments situated in the heart of a golf community. The Marbella Golf Villas are a perfect example of this type. Marbella is a gated community, inspired by a Spanish country club on the Mediterranean. The villas (or condos) are located within the Marbella Country Club in San Juan Capistrano. Most of the condos have grand golf course and mountain views. These are spacious one story homes built with the avid golfer in mind.

The Marbella Country Club is a private, championship golf and tennis club. This par 70 course was designed by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf and features waterfalls, lakes and an undulating terrain which is as challenging to golfers of all levels as it is beautiful. The club has member leagues and inter-club tournaments that take place year round. It also has a state-of-the art fitness center, yoga and pilates studio and fine dining.

Of course, golf course views aren't for everyone. Errant balls can endanger a window. You might not like golfers looking back at you. And, of course, there is some noise from the maintenance workers who keep the course in pristine shape. But for others, these inconveniences are well worth it in exchange for the views.
