I am pleased to announce that my first book, Glorious Back Nine: How to Find Your Dream Golf Home, is available for purchase at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com as of today. The book is the culmination of 15 years of assisting couples in their search for a golf community home, as well as hundreds of conversations with developers, golf professionals, real estate agents, golf community board members and, most of all, the clients I have worked with who have taught me so much.
Glorious Back Nine, which is how many retirees refer to what are often called “the Golden Years,” describes the step-by-step search for a golf community home, from that first all-important “kitchen table” discussion to the moment when you open the front door to your dream golf home. In between, I detail how climate and geography affect a couple’s ultimate choice; lifestyle options; how to select a qualified real estate buyer’s agent; the various types of country club memberships; cost-of-living variables; homeowner association costs; how to plan inspection visits and the most effective questions to ask; and much more. The book also provides notes on dozens of golf communities I have visited and reviewed over the years.
Glorious Back Nine: How to Find Your Dream Golf Home is the only book written about golf communities in the last 10 years. It is available in a printed (paperback) version for $9.99 at the Amazon and Barnes & Noble online sites. An eBook version will follow in early December.
If you have any questions about the book, please contact me.
