Atlanta may be a great golfing option.

Atlanta may be a great golfing option.

When planning a relocation, you will want to make sure that a city is a good place for you. This includes many aspects including cost-of-living, food, safety and other important selling points. One that you may not immediately consider is how well your new city can accommodate your recreational activities. If you are an avid golfer, then you likely want to live in an area that has plenty of solid course options. Luckily, there are plenty of places throughout the country that have plenty of clubs and public courses, and would be great places travel to with the help of your moving company.

Boston
One of the golfing centers of the country is in Boston. The city has been the venue for many major golf tournaments including the Ryder Cup and the U.S. Open. There are many courses in the area, and there are options that will cater to you if you are just starting out, or if you are a seasoned pro. Because of the city's golfing popularity, there are many tourists who test the waters, but if you want to find a quieter venue, odds are you will find it, TheAPosition.com noted.

Rochester, New York
Affordability is the key of Rochester's golfing landscape. The median green fee for the more than 60 courses in the area is only $30, according to Golf.com. This can make for golf excursions that you won't mind doing more frequently. Keep in mind, the weather can get pretty cold in the winter, but it warms right up in the spring just in time to hit the links. The large number of affordable golfing opportunities may make this a great place that is not often frequented.

Palm Springs, California
If the West Coast is more of your speed, then going to Palm Springs may be a good idea. The area has more than 120 different courses, TheAPosition.com explained. One of the great things about this area is its interesting landscape, as it is a desert in a relatively mountainous region. The weather is also warm throughout the year, so winter golf can be quite rewarding in this area.

Atlanta
There is also plenty of golf throughout the Southeast. While places such as Florida and North Carolina are hotbeds for golfing activity, Georgia also isn't a bad spot. The Atlanta area has more than 90 public courses, Golf.com noted, so there may be something for everyone there. The median green fee is also less than $50, so affordability is a definite factor in the area. There is also a sizable amount of junior golfing programs in the city, so those just learning the ropes can get used to the game.

Dallas
Texas is known for making everything bigger, and this rings true for their golf offerings as well. The Dallas area is the home to nearly 110 public golf courses, Golf.com said. This may make a decision to move to the Lone Star State a bit easier. One thing that isn't big is the median green fee for the area, as it is only $38. This could be a great value city for those who need solid courses at a great price.

Philadelphia
Those looking for golf options with a professional twist may be interested in Philadelphia. While the weather gets cold and snowy in the winter, there are some very highly rated gold courses. Nearly one dozen courses in the Philadelphia area have been used for championships by the United States Golf Association, and some of them have had this honor multiple times, the website explained. The oldest course in the city is the Philadelphia Country Club, which was created more than 110 years ago.
