Ever wondered what it’s like living in a home on a golf course?


For those who prefer the simplicity of living in a suburb, living on a golf course will make you never want to leave the city — ever.

Home in a golf course

Living in the city can be quite an exhausting experience especially for those who prefer the simplicity of living in a suburb. Despite conveniences such as easier access to entertainment hubs and cultural centres, city living comes with its own daily challenges such as traffic congestion and poor air-quality among others, while the suburbs are often associated with serenity and higher quality of living. Although the benefits of suburban living can easily outweigh city-living, there are parts of the city that have its own unique set of charms such as the golf course

Golf course living is somewhat of an enigma to most of us. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a privilege reserved for only golf enthusiasts or the rich and famous. Living in a golf course is the perfect way to marry the lifestyle of those unwilling to give up the urbanite status as it seamlessly combines both traits of suburban and city living.

1. There is a never-ending supply of clean, fresh air

There is no denying the health benefits that come with living close to nature and having access to an abundance of clean, fresh air. Studies have shown that those who live in places surrounded by greenery are also more generous, sociable, calm and trusting, while those who are deprived of green space experienced a dramatic decline in health.

Those who have access to parks, jungle or any form of green space for that matter have better cognitive function and greater mental health overall. What’s even more impressive is that access to nature also enhance recovery from surgery, improve immune system functioning, and help diabetics achieve healthier blood glucose levels.

Since Senada Residences is located next to TPC Kuala Lumpur, formerly known as Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club, it is literally enveloped by acres of green lungs (which includes TTDI Park & Bukit Kiara Forest Reserve), you’d be waking up every morning feeling rejuvenated. If you are an avid jogger, hiker, golfer or wildlife enthusiast, then you’d truly enjoy being in close proximity to these green landscapes.

2. Enjoy the tranquility of resort style living


There is a reason why we all crave for that occasional getaway. Getting a well-deserved time off in a setting that facilitates a mental break helps us effectively disconnect from daily concerns. Our mind had been pre-conditioned to associate a resort-style setting with relaxation and reduced stress.

Naturally, living in a resort style development has the same effect on the physical and mental well-being. You get to recharge and de – stress on a daily basis, which inadvertently will improve your productivity level, promotes better health and well-being, and strengthens family ties. Taking time to relax and play has powerful benefits for both children and adults.

3. You get to upgrade your lifestyle with access to better facilities

Most of these residences offer some of the best of facilities around.

If there’s one thing that differentiates living in a golf course and living in regular service apartment or condominium is the clubhouse social membership. Even if you’re not an aspiring golfer, a clubhouse has more than just golf to offer.

Other than a list of eateries, there is a never-ending supply of facilities offered such as a swimming pool, badminton court, tennis court, bowling alley, squash court, table tennis, spa and many more. But of course, if you’re a resident of Senada Residence you get to enjoy some of these facilities at the TPC KL Clubhouse as a privileged social member.

4. You get to minimize time spent stuck in traffic

Most golf course developments are located in less saturated areas with very few developments within the enclosure which makes congestion coming in out of the area quite unlikely.

Senada Residences for example is so strategically located that it takes less than 15 minutes to travel to KLCC, and its bordering mature neighbourhoods such as Mont’ Kiara, Bangsar, Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI), Sri Hartamas and Bukit Damansara.

It is also well served by major roads such as Federal Highway, Damansara-Puchong Highway (LDP), North Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) and Sprint Highway. This makes it easy for you to access many of its prestigious nearby amenities such as international schools, shopping malls and medical centres that are located just a few short minutes away.

For those at the top of the corporate ladder, Senada Commercial offers a 23-storey Grade A corporate tower within the development itself. So, not only will you have the flexibility of space for all your business dealings, you’ll also save travelling time.

5. Top notch security in a close-knit community

It goes without saying that when it comes to purchasing a property, safety and security can make or break a buying decision. When you live in a home on a golf course, your family’s safety and security will be the least of your worry. Golf & country clubs are regarded as an exclusive place which regularly serve as a business and entertainment destination as well as a hub for prestigious events, therefore security is of utmost importance here.

Plus, most of those who choose to live here have similar interest and lifestyle, which help create stronger social ties and greater sense of community. Furthermore, people who live in greener settings are prone to be more generous and sociable, which means, you’ll find stronger mutual trust and a willingness to help others. Your neighbours would be more than happy to take up that karate class you’ve been meaning to try with you, or keep a close watch on your kids while you pop over to the clubhouse for a quick game of squash with your downstairs neighbour.
