7 affordable golf course homes

Palm Desert, California

76913 California Drive
$292,000

You'll find this three bedroom ranch home in the Palm Desert Country Club, just a two-hour drive from Los Angeles. It's the oldest and priciest of the homes in our slideshow, but what a view. The hub of this 1,696-square-foot home is a great room with fireplace that's flanked by windows looking onto a covered patio. And the covered patio looks out onto the 14th fairway and Santa Rosa Mountains.
The kitchen is large, with a breakfast bar that encourages the great room feel. The house also comes with an inside laundry room and attached two-car garage. While you won't pay any homeowners association fees, you do need to pay to play the par-72 course, which is open to the public. You can either pay $35 to $99 per round, or become a member of the club for $5,400 a year and enjoy unlimited free golf.
