The Best Golf Course Communities in the Boise Area
Idaho has more than 100 golf courses scattered throughout the state and some of the best places to hit the links are also wonderful communities to call home. From country club settings to master planned communities, here’s an inside look at just some of the best golf course communities in the Boise area home buyers and golf lovers alike should consider during their new home search.
Highlands Cove - Boise, ID
The Highlands Cove community is perfectly situated at the base of the foothills on Boise’s North End, providing home owners with scenic views of both the Crane Creek Golf Course and the rugged yet picturesque landscape that defines the impressive Idaho landscape. If you’re looking for ample living space and privacy, you’ll love that most homes in Highlands Cove include between 2,300 and over 5,000 square feet. Easy access to the Ridge to Rivers trail system, Greenbelt pathways, and a wide-range of other outdoor recreational attractions also help make Highlands Cove an attraction option for today's home buyers, and of course you’ll also be only a short drive from Downtown Boise as well.
SpurWing Grove - Meridian ID
SpurWing Grove is one of the Boise area’s premier golf course communities, presenting prospective home buyers with custom-built homes and a plethora of lifestyle amenities that go far beyond just having access to a top-rated course. In fact, the community HOA includes membership to the SpurWing Country Club, which provides its members with swimming pools, tennis courts, pickleball courts, private dining, a fitness center, and more. And if walking the course isn’t enough for you, there’s also over 6.5 miles of walking paths throughout the SpurWing Grove community, providing residents with a safe and scenic place to get their steps in all year long.
Legacy - Eagle, ID
Legacy is a sprawling 590-acre planned community in Eagle, Idaho—a fast-growing community about 20 minutes north of Boise. Centered on a community lake and several water amenities, Legacy not only offers easy access to golfing but also a rare opportunity at waterfront living in the Boise suburbs. It’s worth noting that the golf course at Legacy is only a 26-acre, 3-hole executive course; however having a low-key place to work on your game that is virtually right outside your front door is a dream for golfers at any skill level, especially in a setting as scenic as Eagle. Other amenities at the Legacy community include two swimming pools and a community clubhouse, an 11-acre community park, roughly 10 miles of walking and jogging paths, three tennis courts, and community soccer fields.
Banbury Meadows - Eagle, ID
Although development for Banbury Meadows first began all the way back in 2000, it still remains one of the most prestigious golf course communities in all of Idaho. Homes in Banbury Meadows are stately and sit on relatively large lot sizes, and many include stunning views of the 6,890-yard John Harbottle III-designed golf course at Banbury Golf Club. Entry-level home prices at Banbury Meadows can also be somewhat reasonable and start in the $600,000s, although larger custom-built homes in the community can exceed $1.5M as well. Once calling Banbury Meadows home, you’ll also have access to a community swimming pool and clubhouse, and also easy access to the Boise River and Greenbelt, making this a dream location for anyone who loves to be outside and stay active.
