Golf Manor, as the name implies, was once surrounded by golf courses. Today, the wide vistas of beautifully tended greens and fairways still lend a serene parklike atmosphere to several areas.
There is a unique mixture of traditional homes in this well maintained community. Many of the traditional houses, graced by brick pillars, are in excellent condition, while the more contemporary one and two-family designs add a fresh new look to the area. Perhaps the only sign of age is the many streets named for the pioneer residents who once lived here. Newcomers, who are predominately young in years and spirit, are adding a new vitality to neighborhoods that offer many pleasures.
