A quick tour of Vermont

        I am traveling through southern and central Vermont this week, making short stops at golf clubs and resorts in the region to introduce myself and to choose the best places to revisit in the spring.  This is "leaf peeping" season, and while rain on my first day in the area yesterday made the colors on the mountains look a little musty, I am hoping some light shines on the tableau the rest of the week.  I know the thousands of folks who plunk down higher prices for hotel stays and sometimes clog the roads in New England this time of year are hoping for the same.  I have not seen very many cars pulled over on the sides of roads with cameras (and tongues) hanging out.  Could be the economy or the weather or both.  Not many people are going to pony up $150 per night at a Holiday Inn Express to look at trees through a mist.

        Yesterday I stopped at Brattleboro Country Club, Haystack Mountain, and Mount Snow, the latter two with significant adjacent residential communities.  Today I am planning stops at 

Quechee Lakes, a huge 36-hole golf community; The Woodstock Inn; Okemo Valley; and at Green Mountain National Golf Course and Killington Golf Club, both in Killington and near the famed ski slopes.  The rest of the week will include stops at Rutland Country Club, The famed Equinox, and the Stratton Mountain Resort.  I'll squeeze a few more stops in between, so if you have one in central or southern Vermont that you want me to check out, just click on the Contact button above and send me a note.

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.
