5 Reasons Westlake Isn’t Your Typical 55-Plus Community

one_community_entrance_1Searching for an over-55 community? We bet you’ve looked and visited many, and found them lacking. Perhaps the homes were too old and not recently updated. Or too few activities made you worry about your social life. Some don’t even have gated communities, which is a must for your peace of mind.

At Westlake, we understand that when you’re ready to make a move, you want to upgrade into the next phase of your life — not downgrade. We could go on and on about why Westlake Golf and Country Club is both a unique and affordable place to live, but this blog would end up turning into a novel! So we’ve put together a Top Five List of our favorite things about Westlake. Come visit us, and we know you’ll agree.

The Golf Community With a Twist

Before we start our countdown, keep in mind this isn’t your typical adult community. It’s youthful and active, yet peaceful and relaxed. Our residents live their best life here, and there’s something for everyone — and when we say that, we mean it. Now, let’s start the list.


  1. The Westlake Golf Course. If you’re a fan of the links, Westlake is a premier golf community, where our homes have stunning views of the Arthur Hills-designed course. This championship course offers play for any skill level, as well as tournaments to keep things lively and social.
  2. Tennis Courts. In addition to golf, our tennis club draws many residents for games and lessons. Again, all skills are welcome and lessons are available. Tennis is a great way to make friends and compete in fun tournaments throughout the season.
  3. Country Club Activities. Life at Westlake is like being at a country club, 24/7, without ridiculous country club fees. We describe our lifestyle as “upscale resort,” and you’ll see why. With tennis, golf, swimming, a chic restaurant and bar, pool tables, bocce, mahjong, Broadway-caliber shows in our ballroom and wine tasting clubs, you’ll feel like you’re at the club every day — but you’re right at home.
  4. Easy Access to Highways. Although Westlake feels like your own private resort, it’s accessible to major NJ highways and shopping centers. You can take day trips to the beach, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, New York, and countless other fun adventures.
  5. Lovely Homes at Affordable Prices. Our luxury homes offer a variety of floor plans and layouts at affordable prices. Golf course and lake views, beautiful landscaping, one- or two-level homes, golf and tennis memberships all make Westlake homes the place to live among the social and active over-55 community.
