        You might have resented being told, “Go play with someone your own age” when you were young. Well, what goes round comes round, and past the age of 50, playing with folks your own age can be pretty good advice. In the December issue of Home On The Course, my free newsletter, I report on the Senior Golfers of America, a group that plays all over the world. Membership is surprisingly affordable.
        As I have done every four years since 2008, I take a look a Presidential election voting patterns in Southeastern counties that are home to popular golf communities. All precincts are reporting, and this year’s results seem to follow the pattern of past cycles, with a few surprising exceptions.  Also, I include a warning to those who may equate no state income taxes with a low cost of living. A handy chart compares the overall cost of living in states North and South, with a few surprising results that may cause a few wannabe Floridians some taxing moments.
        If you like surprises, the December newsletter is for you. Subscribe now and you will receive it in your inbox tomorrow (Friday). If you miss the launch, just contact me and I will sign you up and forward you the December edition.

Larry Gavrich

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.
