Playing a Round at Creighton Farms Golf Club

Jack Nicklaus golf community in Loudoun

I've played a lot of high caliber golf courses, Congressional, Pinehurst, Treyburn (that's Michael Jordan's club in Durham, NC) just to name a few.

Creighton Farms and River Creek

If you're looking to purchase a home in a golf course community there are a few different items to consider compared to buying a typical single-family residence. In my former life as a PGA Professional (club pro not the guys on TV) I had a number of tricky situations with homeowners living around my course. Nine times out of ten, the issue … [Read more...]

Apex Custom Homes at the Enclave
