Golf is one of the most popular sports in gated communities. Many people who do it choose to buy their land and build their house near the links with the excuse of leaving directly from home with their carts and sticks predisposed to go through the holes that are part of the different fields and water bodies.
“What people most look for is to be near green spaces where they can practice outdoor activities. The enterprises that offer it were greatly appreciated ”(Zorraquín)
Santiago Zorraquín, owner of Casa Practika Negocios Inmobiliarios, who sells in Estancias del Pilar, told Infobae that “in the last 2 years, golf clubs and golf courses have been greatly appreciated. People seek to be near green spaces where they can practice outdoor activities. The enterprises that offer it were greatly appreciated ”.
Not only golfers buy them in neighborhoods with the option of leaving home to hit the ball and walk the course (something that is usually done in 4 hours). “From our experience, many owners who do not practice it later become golfers thanks to the schools that exist in the clubs,” added Zorraquín.
In this urbanization, in the Estancias Golf neighborhood, there are lots of 2,000 m2 on average, the lots with views of the golf course range from USD 170.000 to the 230.000, and internships in golf range from $ 120,000 and $ 145,000.
Migration to Pilar has been very strong in the last 2 years. Many who had their home for the weekend, tried to live in quarantine and already confirmed their move, changing their school children and experienced that the home office worked well for their work occupations.
Zorraquín pointed out that “people put in I value quality of life over value, that before was ahead of everything. It is a continuous and non-stop demand. In recent months in some areas of Pilar, the values of apartments in USD per m2 that have been paid have been increasing and values between 2,000 and 3,200 dollars “.
Another proposal where this sport attracts owners is the Pilar Golf Club where it has a 27 par course that gives the possibility of making 9 holes in the so-called the Blue, the White and the Red.
Mauro Misuraca, president of the urbanization in which they will soon launch the Pebble Beach neighborhood, made up of 30 lots surrounded by the golf course with surfaces from 1,200 m2, highlighted that “golf projects offer a differential, in addition to the sports proposal itself , generate a unique green space that all residents take advantage of. The lands located on golf have a valuation of between 40 and 50% with respect to the internal ones ”.
Like the water mirrors. golf lots are the most sought after. In Pilar Golf, 40% of the land faces the court.

The pitches without a golf front start from USD 120.000, and overlooking the court, from USD 180.000; also in place there is a hotel of five stars with more than 170 rooms, restaurants, meeting rooms, swimming pool and spa services.
Regarding the houses that are currently being built there, Misuraca pointed out that “modern architecture incorporated new elements such as exposed concrete, iron and wood. The access patios provided privacy to the houses and in the garden sector, the pools incorporated into the gallery sector are seen more every day to enjoy the visual throughout the year and the spaces for fireplaces at the bottom of the lot ”.
Currently, in the market they maintain that there are more than 1,500 houses under construction, and that half are facing golf of the different urbanizations.
Teresa Urdapilleta, of the homonymous real estate, believes that at this time you can see a variety of works. Many properties are having a modern construction, of concrete and some among others of dry construction with aluminum skeleton. In turn, we find dozens of properties with internal and external spare parts.
The trend, in the countries, is to build more square houses and that the common spaces are used to the greatest extent trying to incorporate all the environments, integrating the interior with the exterior. The windows are larger providing more natural light, something very precious since COVID-19 arrived.
“What can not be missing in new buildings are, for example, large dressing rooms, playroom incorporated into the kitchen / living room, important galleries with grills so that the person doing the barbecue can share time with family or friends ”, commented Urdapilleta.
In Pilar, for example, in the most exclusive countries, the values compared to golf range between USD 250 and USD 400 per square meter.
Demand profile golf
People who buy golf are older couples who spend a lot of their time enjoying the sport, experts say.
Haydée Burgueño, of the homonymous real estate company and member of the North Real Estate Group, pointed out that “younger people are looking for neighborhoods with lots to the lagoon, since there are several proposals for new neighborhoods such as El Naudir (in Escobar), where today it is being presented the show Pilar Style. There the values in front of the lagoon hover between the USD 110,000 and 160,000 in lots of 900 m2 ″.
While the land that overlooks golf, for example, in Carmel of 1,000 m2 is around a value of $ 140,000. And in Golfer’s, another symbolic country of Pilar, the plots of 800 m2, start from $ 90,000.
For many who choose to buy a lot or home within walking distance of the fairways O greens waves, from the sector maintain that golf has become, in many cases, in a lifestyle. Perhaps the phenomenon that most contributed to this transformation was rapid urbanization on the outskirts of cities and being part of new suburban projects with permanent residents.
Flavia Santillán, Marketing Manager, of Haras del Sur (at km 70 of National Route 2, in La Plata), commented to Infobae, the following: “We have a marked golfer buyer profile, given by the practice of sport in the comfort of your residence”.
In this development, the holes run through different sectors of the country, 40% of the total lots give to the links.
The main advantage that a resident who practices golf has is the ability to play at all times without any extra charge. “Regarding tournaments organized in the club, it always has the priority of vacancy and, in addition, it has an annual calendar of tournaments to participate in,” Santillán concluded.
