Ginn story unfolds on Golf Channel Tuesday

    Faithful reader Rick Vogel was kind to give us a heads up that Golf Channel plans to devote its Golf in America show on Tuesday to the Ginn Resorts saga.  The show airs at 10 p.m. on most cable channels.
    The promo for the show at The Golf Channel web site hints at an expose, using the potential of "fraud" in its teaser.  For those interested in golf real estate and especially the high-end variety, the show should provide some useful lessons in what to look for -- and what to avoid -- when shopping for a home in a golf community.
    I'll have some thoughts about the show here on Wednesday.  (Note:  The Golf Channel web site is a bit sloppy, with videos that stop midway through and promotions for events that have passed.)

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.
