        I'm editing the initial draft of the main feature for the July edition of Home On The Course, our free monthly newsletter. The piece that I am calling "How to Play Smorgasbord Golf," details five strategies for those aiming to play a lot of golf in retirement without breaking the bank. For serious golfers considering a move South for year-round golf, the options are almost dizzying. Our five strategies help put a little balance into the search for the perfect golf home and best rotation of golf courses you can play consistently.
        Sign up for our free Home On The Course newsletter now by clicking here and we will make sure you receive the July edition, which will be published in the next few days, and all future issues. And if you are in the early stages of your search for a vacation or retirement golf home and would like our suggestions about where to look, we invite you to fill out our Golf Home Questionnaire. It takes less than five minutes, we never share your personal information without your permission, and we will get back to you within a few days with a suggestion of golf communities that match your requirements...including those with multiple golf courses inside the gates or nearby. You can access the Golf Home Questionnaire by clicking 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.
