        In a tough economy with so much uncertainty about the next couple of years, few of us are thinking about adding a vacation home to our roster of possessions.  But there is a price at which even the most parsimonious of golfers start to take a closer look.

        The following are a few new listings whose price tags caught my eye.  I know the surrounding golf communities well and can recommend them as excellent places to live part-time or all the time.  If any of these examples of the many bargain priced golf community homes interest you, please contact me for more information.

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.
