Blackhawk Country Club

If you’re looking for a club that is pure golf, Blackhawk Country Club may be worth a look.

When you have a schedule that accommodates staycations far better than vacations, you may be the perfect candidate for a second home in Madison. Think “Lake Mendota” instead of “Lake Como,” and you’ll see where I’m going with this. Not only will you not need to learn to speak Italian, but you’ll be lounging around your lake home instead of spending hours in an airplane.

Many Americans with the means to do so are finding that “getting away” doesn’t have to mean “far away,” according to the Wall Street Journal’s Candace Taylor. The trend toward buying a vacation home in the same general area as the permanent home makes perfect sense to some. “They say the key to relaxation is a change of scenery, even if it’s just a few miles from where they normally

For golfers, it’s a no-brainer to buy a home on or near a favorite golf course. But golf course living attracts non-golfers as well. In fact, only 25 percent of golf course homebuyers join the club on which they live, according to David Koeppel with the The Fiscal Times. Can you blame them? Golf course scenery can be breathtaking and it’s always well-maintained.

We’re rather proud of our golf courses and communities here in Madison, so today we dive into part II of Life on Madison’s Fabulous Golf Courses. (Read part I here.)

Glenway Golf Course

What’s not to like about a rolling greenbelt out your living room window? Life on or next to a golf course does have its perks. Even if you don’t eat, breathe and sleep golf, a golf course home may be for you. First, these homes tend to hold their value better than homes in other areas and, second, you’ll never have to worry about someone building a big box store next door.

If golf course living is in your future, Madison is your perfect location. Across the city you’ll find spectacular golf courses – both private and public -- on which to live and play. Over the next few months we’ll feature the various courses. Today, we start with one public and one private course and the fabulous homes that surround them.
