        The residents of the Huntington Beach, CA, Seacliff golf community’s most upscale neighborhood may be wondering who let the dogs in.  A home in the Peninsula section of Seacliff that had been repossessed by a local bank at $1.8 million was totally trashed after no one bid on it last August.  Now, in order to prepare it for sale, the lender is spending  $250,000 for repairs on the 3,000 square foot house adjacent to the Seacliff Golf Club.

        We first learned of the destruction from GoToby.com.  Not only does the entire interior look like a war zone, but apparently ripped out toilets and other fixtures were stolen, proving that security gates, even those guarded 24 hours a day, can do just so much.

        You can read the article originally posted at the Orange County Register’s web site in its Huntington Homes section (click here).  Warning:  Some photographs of the destruction may be disturbing to impressionable homeowners who respect property and the rule of law.

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.
