Certainly in NJ there are numerous gated communities where no one under 16 is permitted to live. Rather than a golf course, most are built around a club house, which they say becomes the center of numerous social activities.

As people grow older, they tend to become isolated in their homes. The clubhouse style communities are famous for their numerous, almost daily activities, that can keep people going all the time.

You might want to retire before you decide and move to one of those only after some time. Numerous communities now have senior centers which allow the same level of activity but without being stuck with high monthly fees.

Many think they will be bored in retirement, but there can be lots of things to do through various systems. Church, clubs, friends, hobbies, all kinds of things become possible because you have time for more such activities you could never consider while you were working. So rather than make a choice now, personally I would wait a while and see how things develop for you.
