7 affordable golf course homes
Alto, New Mexico
107 Crown Ridge Rd.
This three-bedroom, three bath home comes with membership to not one but two 18-hole golf courses. The home is part of the Alto Lakes Golf and Country Club, and is off the 16th tee box of the Alto Lakes Course. The annual $2,400 homeowners' fee includes entry onto this private course and the Outlaw at Alto Lakes (members golf free; greens fees for guests run from $37 for nine holes up to $82 for 18 holes). The home provides more than 2,300 square-feet of living space and features a new roof, flooring and expanded dining area. It's definitely the most remote property in our slideshow, about 180 highway miles southeast of Albuquerque. It's also the highest, 7,300 feet up in the Sacramento Mountains. But with temps reaching the low 50s during the winter months, and skiing just 12 miles away, you could conceivably hit the slopes in the morning and the links the same afternoon.
