MILLBANK IS A NINE IRON AWAY FROM FORT MILL GOLF CLUB
Fort Mill Golf Club is an 18-hole championship golf course that rolls through tree-lined fairways. The club was founded in 1948 with the front 9 designed by the legendary Donald Ross. George Cobb designed the back 9, which opened in 1959. In the heart of Fort Mill and just minutes from Charlotte, Fort Mill Golf Club is a perennial favorite among local golfers. Conceived by legends of golf design, it features a layout that is friendly to walkers and perfect for an afternoon away.
A real community feeling
The sense of community is one of the most praised aspects of living in a 55+ community, we naturally form friendships with people we can relate to. Studies have shown that having a sense of community greatly impacts a person’s well-being and quality of life. Neighbors build lasting friendships and often become close like a family. Millbank’s size of 51 homes is perfect, allowing a diverse group of neighbors but not so many that you get lost in the shuffle.
Low south carolina taxes
Cost of living is approximately 15% lower just over the border in South Carolina as opposed to living in Charlotte proper. Millbank offers the best of both, with an excellent, convienent location and the lower cost.
