1. Access to world-class amenities
One of the primary reasons to live the club lifestyle is the access you gain to top-notch amenities. Many club communities like Promontory and Glenwild offer fantastically challenging and beautiful golf courses designed by world-renowned architects. If you own Park City real estate in these impressive communities, you’ll have the chance to put your skills to the test whenever your heart desires.

Clubhouses often span thousands of square feet, providing health classes and spa facilities. Not only that, but adventurous residents have access to the best ski terrain around. Park City Mountain and Deer Valley Resort feature thousands of acres of skiable landscape, with mountainside vistas and endless thrills out on the slopes.
By owning an exquisite piece of real estate in Park City real estate, residents have easy access to the top recreational facilities and amenities in their area.
2. A strong sense of community
These communities promise a sense of togetherness, welcoming, and belonging. Clubs often attract like-minded individuals who share a common interest in sports, fitness, and luxury living. Living side-by-side with neighbors who share similar values and ambitions makes it easier to build strong friendships. In addition, country club communities typically host social events to help residents connect and engage with their neighbors.
3. Low-maintenance amenities
Due to the HOA’s efforts at maintaining the grounds, amenities, and shared spaces, there is much less upkeep for homeowners to tackle on their own. Although HOA fees may be adjusted to assist with exterior landscaping and repair services, sharing that cost with neighbors can save residents time and money in the long run. The HOA will handle various tasks, such as lawn care, pest control, and exterior home maintenance, which is a relief for busy residents. Common areas are pristinely maintained, which makes the entire community feel more inviting and attractive — this is a big plus for buyers who want to live in a gorgeous, well-kept environment without having to handle all the upkeep themselves.
For instance, Glenwild is managed by the Glenwild HOA, which is committed to the community’s prestige and expertly handles maintenance concerns. They also ensure environmental efforts and preserve the natural landscape surrounding the residences. Glenwild also works with Coopers HOA to tackle common area repairs, road maintenance, construction projects, and more.
4. A fun family environment
Finally, club communities offer a host of opportunities for families to make amazing memories together. Youth summer camps and sports teams give kids a chance to socialize, develop new skills, and enjoy their hobbies. For instance, Promontory hosts a kids’ club for ages 4-12 in which children can enjoy arts and crafts and connect with their peers. The Promontory Adventure Trail, led by a trusted educator, guides mini-explorers along water slides, fortresses, caves, and tree houses. Other fun kids’ activities include photography lessons, STEAM groups, nature walks, fishing excursions, and sports camps.
Families will also find a number of family-tailored events to attend throughout the year, from holiday parties and movie nights to outdoor concerts. These events provide a fun and festive atmosphere where families can spend time together and connect with the community.
