Your editor, the matchmaker

    True story.  I thought I was meeting my friend and former colleague Alden for a cup of coffee this morning, something we try to do every three months or so.  Instead, Alden showed up with Annette, whom I also once worked with, and the two of them presented me with a certificate labeled the "Cupid Award."  It was signed by both and cited me "For fulfilling [the] role in bringing together the lives of Alden and Annette just as it was meant to be, just at the right time."
    Alden and Annette were oozing mutual love at Starbucks this morning.  They announced that they are going shopping for an engagement ring this week.  My role in all this was totally involuntary.  Four years ago Annette, former director of admissions at a small local college, had some organizational issues.  Alden, an internal organizational consultant in the corporation I worked for, had the right skills for the job.  It only seemed right that I put them together for purely professional reasons, but it took one or two presentations - Alden is very smooth, Annette a good listener - for them to fall in love.

    I probably know more about golf course real estate than I do about affairs of the heart.  If I can help bring two people together without trying, maybe I can help others find their home on the course.  Please give me a try by registering here and by also considering a subscription to our newsletter, which we will launch in the coming weeks for the reasonable price of $39 annually (six information packed issues).  If I can provide any advice, please don't hesitate to contact me (contact button at right).

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.
