Uwharrie Point on the list to visit

    We have an informal list of areas and golf course communities to visit in upcoming months for our newsletter, HomeOnTheCourse, as well as for articles at this site.  These include the Gulf Coast areas of Mobile and Biloxi, the Texas Hill Country between Austin and San Antonio, the high elevation areas of Boone, Brevard and Cashiers in North Carolina, Reynolds Plantation in Georgia and developing areas in New Mexico.

    One community we definitely intend to visit is Uwharrie Point in central North Carolina.  Although Uwharrie is secluded, with an adjacent 50,000 acre national forest, it is within easy drives of two major airports in Charlotte and Raleigh.  Its Tom Fazio-designed Old North State Club is one of the best private courses in a golf-rich state, and with three finishing holes along Badin Lake (see photo below), the layout is eye-appealing as well as challenging.  The community offers a nice range of townhomes as well as single-family homes.  It adds all the amenities you would expect to find in a high-end community (Har-Tru tennis courts, a large clubhouse with views of the lake, many swimming pools, and miles of walking trails).  A full-service marina is available for boaters.

    Cottage-style patio homes begin around $300K.  The largest single-family homes with prime views range into the millions, but there appear to be quite a few nice selections in between.  Home sites with views of the lake begin in the mid $100s, and those with views of the golf course are still available at less than $100K.

    For more information, see the community's web site at www.uwharriepoint.com .  Who knows, maybe we will see you there.
