Aiken golf communities just off Masters stage

    The golf world turns its attention to Augusta, GA, this weekend, which is a mixed blessing for residents of the golf communities of Aiken, SC, just across the border.  The Augusta area can't quite handle all those attending the tournament; residents of Aiken's golf communities, which include Mount Vintage, Cedar Creek and Woodside Plantation, rent out their homes -- in some cases for thousands of dollars for the week -- to some of the more well-heeled among the Masters' attendees.  Suddenly, strangers appear on the courses and you can't just walk up and play at your own course.

    We've visited Aiken and, during Masters weekend, we'll recall our impressions of the town (it's charming) and the communities.  If you like horses, as well as golf, you might want to hoof it to Aiken for a visit at some point.

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.
