    -- Ron van Winkle, Economist for the City of West Hartford, CT commenting on the latest U.S. Census Bureau estimates for population migration (Source:  Hartford Courant, 2/4/07, page B1)
    Of those who left the state between 2005 and 2006, most left for the southern states.  Connecticut lost a net 17,000 people in that period.

This blog was conceived and is published by me, Larry Gavrich, a former corporate communications executive who founded HomeOnTheCourse, LLC, in 2005.  Our firm advises baby boomers and others seeking a lifestyle in which golf is a major component.  My wife Connie and I own a home in Connecticut (not on a golf course) and a condo at Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, SC, on a Jack Nicklaus layout.  We began our search for our home on the course more than 15 years ago, and the challenges of the search inspired me to research golf communities and write objective reviews of them.
