Hot time summer in the cities...

    After enjoying a few warm days this last week in South Carolina, we found ourselves thinking about summer and how some days are so hot that you arrange for the earliest possible tee time.  You don’t want to be on the golf course much past 11 a.m. when the turf heats up and you feel assaulted from below, as well as above.
    There is a price to be paid for a home in a climate that makes year round golf possible.  That price is called July.  We checked out both average temperatures and average high temperatures (in degrees Fahrenheit) for some of the most popular areas for second-homes and retirement homes on golf courses.  We rank them below from highest average high temperature to lowest.  For a converter from Fahrenheit to Centigrade, click here.

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.
