Mt. Anthony club well decorated

         Some golf clubs -- and their members -- are content with a well-kept golf course, a decent clubhouse and restaurant, and a friendly efficient staff.  In my experience, most do just that.  If they don't, especially in this environment, their customers have plenty of other options.

         A few clubs add an extra touch that communicates seriousness of purpose as well as an extra dollop of welcome for members and guests.  I wandered into the Mt. Anthony Golf Club in Bennington, VT, on my way back from a weeklong Vermont trip on Friday.  The staff and owners, the Griffin family, had festooned the area around the clubhouse with the accoutrements of the season. This is the kind of touch that makes strangers who play the course for the first time, or those who just make a brief visit, as I did, want to come back again.

         I will.  The place must look great on July 4th weekend.

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.
