Tough course

         I stopped briefly yesterday at Lake of St. Catherine Golf Club in Poultney, VT, one of those little gems of a golf course you stumble on from time to time.  I'll have more photos and words about the course in the next few days, but as I wandered around the holes adjacent to the attractive new clubhouse, I happened upon a trashcan that showed clear evidence of a badly played shot.  For those of us of a certain age, it recalled Terrible Tommy Bolt, whose golf clubs were always in danger of a similar fate. Tommy either drowned them in the nearest lake or, if no body of water  was nearby, he used his knee to pay them back for a bad shot.

         I understand the impulse but can't afford new clubs.

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.
