        Western North Carolina golf is on sale. No, not green fees but rather the golf courses themselves.  According to the Asheville Citizen-Times, no fewer than five golf clubs in the state’s popular mountain area are on the market.  Considering that some golf course operators would prefer to negotiate a sale outside the public eye, the number could be considerably higher.

        I recognized all of the golf courses mentioned in the article, including the Ed Ault designed Etowah Valley and Linville Falls, a combined Bruce Devlin/Lee Trevino layout.

        Keith Jarrett, who has reported over the years on the Cliffs Communities and other golf communities in the Asheville area, wrote the article. You can read Keith’s piece by clicking here.

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.
