Ladies Day

    In honor of the mother of my children, I am taking the rest of today off.  However, before I do, I wanted to say that this week's LPGA tour event is being held at Kingsmill's River Course, a classic layout we played last month and liked a lot.  Kingsmill offers a nice spot for a golfing vacation as well as an opportunity to live permanently in a vibrant resort community.  Golf in the Williamsburg, VA, area, as we wrote here recently, is terrific, almost all of it accessible to the public (except for Governor's Land, which is a gated community with a private course).

    One last observation about this weekend's tournament:  As any student of American history knows, the name Lee is renowned in the state of Virginia, and it is of ironic consequence that half of the top 8 in the field going into Sunday's final round bear the same last name as the famous General Lee.  These golfing Lees, however, are all of Korean extraction and illustrate the swift changing of the guard in professional ladies golf.


    Happy Mother's Day!

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.
