Golf at Over 55 Communities in Massachusetts

Today’s retirees are leading active lives full of social gatherings, travel, sports, and much more. As a result, any active adult community needs to fulfill these needs, while also providing comfort and convenience. Communities such as Southport pride themselves on serving all of the needs of seniors who want to spend their retirement following their interests and passions.

Whether you rent or own, active adult communities provide easy access and low maintenance. After all, you want to spend your time hiking, biking, playing golf with friends, or fine-tuning your craft skills. What you don’t want to do is worry about home and yard maintenance, especially during Massachusetts winters. With communities like Southport, these tasks are taken care of for you, so that you don’t have to worry about the danger or the tedium of cleaning gutters, mowing lawns, or shoving walkways.

These communities also feature homes that take into consideration the physical needs of seniors. Even when a home has multiple stories, the main living space, including the master suite, is on the first floor. You can save the basement and upstairs for storage or guests.

As well as convenience in the home, an active adult community also provides convenience within the community. You don’t have to go far to find spacious community centers, gyms, walking/cycling paths, golf courses, tennis courts, and entertainment options. Indoors and out, there’s always something going on to keep you entertained, active, and social.

It is the social aspect that truly appeals to so many active adults. Choosing one of these communities puts you in touch with like-minded people, and with the amenities on site, as well as the vast array of daily and weekly activities and groups, making friends is incredibly easy. The friendships people make at Southport are one of the unexpected but most appreciated benefits of living in such a community.

When you choose an active adult community, you can feel secure knowing that you have access to the kinds of services and amenities you want and need, without unexpected costs. Friendship, activities, and beautiful homes combine to create an ideal environment that you could enjoy at any age.
