On Daufuskie, you can't eat atmosphere

    Our friends at Golf Vacation Insider visited Daufuskie Island, SC, recently and report in their latest email, and on their web site, that the food service at the local resort left a little to be desired.  That's too bad, because when I visited over a year ago, everything seemed to be buttoned up.  The golf was especially impressive; I enjoyed my round at the Jack Nicklaus designed Melrose Course (I didn't play the second resort course, Bloody Point).  My breakfast in the main dining room was okay but certainly did not match the view out to the Calibogue Sound.  You can read the GolfVactionInsider report at GolfVacationInsider.com .

    For those special few who consider it an adventure to live on an island reached only by ferry, Daufuskie offers an alternative to the Daufuskie Island Resort.  Haig Point is a small enclave of homes and a 27 hole Rees Jones layout that runs through the marsh and, for a few holes, along the Calibogue Sound.  You can see Hilton Head and the lighthouse at Harbour Town across the sound.  Lots and homes at Haig Point are reasonably priced, but fees for golf and beach membership are comparatively high, and homeowner dues are high as well (the owners subsidize the ferry to Hilton Head, which runs frequently).  If you are interested in visiting Haig Point and Daufuskie Island, let us know.  We have some excellent real estate contacts there.

Serve yourself:  If you live at the Daufuskie Island Resort, you can skip the capricious schedule in the resort's clubhouse.

Marsh, sand and the Calibogue form beautiful framework at Haig Point.

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.
