The customers speak, and we thank them

        The best way for an Internet-based service like ours to convince potential customers to become real customers is with testimonials from satisfied customers. We received a wonderful, unsolicited note last week from a customer who wrote us from her new home at The Landings, near Savannah, GA. She and her husband participated in our first couples “discovery” weekend 1½ years ago, enjoyed the golf, the food in the clubhouse and the general ambience of The Landings. With our assistance, they bought a beautiful golf home there last August and will take up residence full time once their home in upstate New York is sold.

        “We feel that finding you, filling out your questionnaire, and talking with you was the best thing we did!!” she wrote. “Your knowledge and guidance was what we needed!”

        We also helped an oil company executive and his wife last year purchase a lot at Bluffton, SC’s Berkeley Hall, home to two outstanding Tom Fazio golf courses.

        “Thanks for lining us up with Tom [our Realtor in Bluffton] and his

team; they were very helpful in high-grading the properties to view and providing community info,” he wrote. “Also, lining us up with a local builder was critical for us to gain an idea of homes that we might build.” Construction recently started on their new home, with its view of both the golf course and a lake, and they expect to relocate full-time to Berkeley Hall later this year.

        Of course, the greatest compliment of all is to be referred by a satisfied customer to a friend or relative. “My brother Steve is interested in possibly purchasing a golf property in SW Florida,” wrote a customer we helped purchase a beautiful lot perched above the Jack Nicklaus golf course at Governors Club in Chapel Hill, NC.  “I told him all about you and your service, and he is very interested in speaking with you. I took the liberty of giving him your office and cell phone number.”

        That is a liberty we are always happy for our customers to take. If you would like an idea of which golf communities match up the best with your requirements, please fill out our online Golf Home Survey. There is no fee for our services and no obligation to purchase a property. And we will never share your personal information without your express permission.  Click here for our questionnaire.

        This is a great time to be looking for a golf home, as prices in many golf communities have hit bottom and are starting to rise. We look forward to assisting you.


Last year, one of our customers purchased a lot like this one, with a view of one of the Tom Fazio golf courses as well as a lake at Berkeley Hall in Bluffton, SC.  He and his wife are building their own dream home now.

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.
