I am pleased to report that one of the best sources of information for retired persons has posted an article I wrote about the elements of a successful search for a golf home, all of which I detail in my new book, Glorious Back Nine: How to Find Your Dream Golf Home. I visit TopRetirements.com often to not only check on real retirees comments about where they live, and where they want to live, but also to participate in some of those lively discussions myself.
My article, which was posted at the site last Sunday evening, identifies five of the most critical decisions a couple must make on the path to their dream golf home. They are: deciding first on general location and whether it will be near or far from a city (or somewhere in between); what to do if the couple can’t initially agree on location (divorce is not an option); why so many non-golfers choose a golf community; the importance to not take rankings (e.g. best places to live) seriously; and to focus on cost of living and not state income tax.
Glorious Back Nine: How to Find Your Dream Golf Home is currently available in paperback for about the cost of a sleeve of Titleist ProVIs ($9.99) at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. The eBook version will be available later this month. Glorious Back Nine is the only book on the market for those interested in finding a golf community home and the lifestyle that is possible there. For anyone who lets me know they have purchased the book, I will be pleased to send an autographed label you can affix to the inside of Glorious Back Nine.
