Warning: Shameless self-promotion follows

Wild Life:  The marsh on the courses near Charleston can bring out the animal in all of us.


    Think of golf in Charleston, SC, and the first thing that may come to mind is the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, plus all the other fine courses there and at the adjacent Seabrook Island.  If you can afford it, and don't mind the 30-minute trek to the city on a two-lane cart path that has not accommodated population growth, Kiawah is certainly worth a look.
    For other golfers who love Charleston enough to live even closer, the nearby town of Mt. Pleasant offers tremendous variety in housing and golf.  We cover the area in depth in the latest issue of the HomeOnTheCourse Community Guide, which has just been released to subscribers.  If you subscribe now for just $39 for six issues a year, we will not only rush you this latest issue but we'll also throw in another issue of your choosing, absolutely free (a $15 value alone).   
    Signing up is simple and secure at HomeOnTheCourse.com.  And upon confirmation of your subscription, I will personally send you a list of all the issues we have published from which you can choose the one you want.   They include such golf and lifestyle-rich areas as Chapel Hill, Asheville, Jacksonville, Williamsburg and up and coming areas like Aiken, SC, and Knoxville, TN, where relative bargains still abound.
    HomeOnTheCourse offers the same kind of no-nonsense reporting that readers of this site have come to expect.  In the latest issue, for example, we take a course owner to task for handing out scorecards with the nines reversed, show some mild disappointment in a too-mild Arthur Hills layout and some major disappointment with the service at a former top-notch resort that has seen better days.  And just when we thought there were no surprises left, we come upon a clubhouse that would not have been out of place in Communist Russia in the 1950s.  
    Oh yes, we also have some nice things to say too.  And we include our exclusive numerical ratings of the golf courses and the town of Mt. Pleasant. For the price of a few gallons of ice cream or a fancy restaurant steak, we provide a much healthier diet of information to help you find your dream home on the course.  So why delay?  Subscribe today.  Thanks.

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.
