Sweet Home (of golf) Alabama

        Yesterday, we shared the comments and photos of one of our readers, John Hangen of Maine, who reported on his and wife Ann's visit to the Stonewall Resort in West Virginia.

        The piece reminded another dedicated reader, Rick Vogel of Asheville, of a recent trip to Mobile, AL.

        "We passed a number of the RTJ [Robert Trent Jones] sites on our way from Asheville to Mobile last week," Rick wrote. "Coming from Alabama, a state not known for cutting-edge innovation, the Trail was a stroke of golf genius.

        "I remember the Wall Street Journal said it was one of the biggest golf bargains in the country," Rick added, "and the NY Times, not to be outdone, said it was some of the best golf on earth."

I've been there, and could not agree more. 

         Thanks Rick.


Oxmoor Valley near Birmingham is one of 26 superb courses along the Robert Trent Jones Trail in Alabama.

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.
