There are countless oceanfront golf communities in Florida – but the mere presence of a beach and a golf course doesn’t necessarily make any seaside golf residence one that’s worth investing (or living) in. To help narrow your search, read on for our top 3 picks of the most luxuriously appointed, golf-centric, great-to-live-in oceanfront golf communities the Sunshine State has to offer.
#1. Ocean Hammock – Palm Coast, FL
The premier gated community sprawled along 2.5 miles of the Atlantic Coast between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach, Ocean Hammock is an oceanfront golf community in Florida with a true relaxing appeal. Far enough away from the tourist traps to create an air of serenity but with easy access to the entire eastern Florida seaboard and to Central Florida’s main attractions. Membership to the Hammock Beach Resort provides residents many world-class amenities – from the championship golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson, which have hosted PGA Tour events, and ranked among the highest in the state by Golf Magazine, Golf Week and Golf Digest; to tennis courts, 24-hour security, fitness studios and spas, a marina, high-end restaurants and so much more.
Homes within the Ocean Hammock community range from $1million to over $4 million. They capture true Floridian style and often designed with a Caribbean flair, which is the case of one three-level beachfront property that is being offered for sale at absolute auction by Supreme Auctions on February 6th. The property features 5,800 square feet of luxury indoor space and another 2,000 square feet of outdoor space with breathtaking ocean views. This plantation-style beachfront retreat has too many extravagances to list, among them a spacious gourmet kitchen, private guest suites, a glass-enclosed elevator, darkened movie theater, heated pool, private walkway to the beach, and so much more.

#2. Seminole Landing – North Palm Beach
With prices starting at over $2,000,000 this luxury oceanfront golf community is home to some very affluent residents – and, with its easily accessible ocean front, large acre or more lots, stunning tropical-inspired landscaping, high-ranking golf club and 24-hour security, it’s no wonder that the corporate elite flock here. In fact, the community’s beach front Seminole Golf Club is currently ranked #22 in the world by Golf Magazine. The homes themselves range from a “modest” 4,000 square foot to well over 15,000 and often feature major luxuries such as VIP guest suites, his and her baths, wine rooms, private docks, their own lighted tennis courts, Intracoastal waterway access, infinity pools, chef’s kitchens and so much more. And, for those not content to live in an already built home, there are still quite a few parcels of land for sale for building your perfect oceanfront golf dream home.
#3. Bay Colony – Naples
Considered by many to be the premier oceanfront golf community in Florida, Bay Colony offers an assortment of luxury residences, from low-maintenance condominium towers to luxury villas and sprawling estate homes. One of the features that truly sets the golf community of Bay Colony apart is its desirable location – not only is it nestled in North Naples and just a short drive away from some of Florida’s most exciting tourist attractions, it’s also a world apart thanks to its developers’ careful attention to privacy and exclusivity. Residents of Bay Colony can live directly on the oceanfront, just a short walk away from miles of sandy beaches – or – they can choose to live with a gorgeous golf fairway as their estate’s backdrop. With so many lakes, mangrove preserves and stunning scenery, this area of Southwest Florida is spectacular in its own right and Bay Colony uses these elements to full advantage. Oceanfront condos in a high rise Bay Colony property such as The Windsor are quite grand, with square footage ranging from 4,000 to over 8,000 and prices well over $10 million. Meanwhile, more modest condominiums on the oceanfront within the Biltmore property start in the $3 million range.
