7 affordable golf course homes

Waleska, Georgia

130 Wolverine Drive
$209,000

The cheapest home in our slideshow is also the biggest at 2,586 square feet, with four bedrooms, two full baths, a half bath and attached garage. You'll find pine floors throughout and those highly prized granite countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. The master suite has a walk-in closet with separate vanities in the bathroom, a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Although the backyard has trees for some privacy, it does adjoin the 4th fairway of the Highlands Golf Course. A large deck looks out on both. Located in the Lake Arrowhead gated community, it's surrounded by mountains a little less than 50 miles north of downtown Atlanta. Is that too far to commute in Georgia traffic? You'll have to decide. The homeowners' association fee is $1,560 a year and includes discounted green fees of $39 to $46 for 18-holes, compared to $48 to $55 for non-property owners.
