        Old Tabby Links at Spring Island, SC, is one of the best golf courses I have played in the last couple of years.  It is very private, which means you don’t get to play it unless you are the guest of a member, and it is not cheap either, with initiation fees running into the six-figure range and annual dues of about $15,000.  Homes are for the most part well into the seven-figure range, but today’s Wall Street Journal features three homes in private clubs, one of them on Spring Island and listed at a relatively bargain of $895,000.  The home is just 1,570 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths, smaller than other Spring Island houses, but it does sit on 2 ½ acres. 

        The Arnold Palmer-designed golf course, one of his best, is worth the price of admission, if you can afford it.  To read my earlier review of the golf community and its course, click here.

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.
