Virtual Author Event with Larry Gavrich

Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a virtual author event, co-sponsored with the Simsbury Library!

Glorious Back Nine: How to Find Your Dream Golf Home, by Larry Gavrich. The book is a guide for anyone searching for a golf community home, or a house located near excellent golf, in the Sunbelt.  It spans more than 150 pages and was published last month in paperback; an eBook version will follow soon.  The book’s audiences are both golfers and non-golfers since 50% of those who live in golf communities never play golf.

Glorious Back Nine is the only book currently on the market devoted to the subject of golf communities.  Thousands of Baby Boomers and others head south annually for a more active, year-round lifestyle, and that migration has become more intense due to the pandemic as seniors and others flee populated areas for what they perceive as safer environments.  During his presentation, Larry will discuss what is happening in the real estate markets in the Sunbelt, as well as other timely topics.

About Larry:

After a 35-year career in corporate communication, Larry Gavrich retired before his 60th birthday and combined two of his loves—golf and the written word—with a late-in-life passion for real estate.  That mix of interests led to the creation of Home On The Course, an advisory service designed to assist his fellow Baby Boomers and anyone else looking to relocate from cold winter weather to a golf-oriented home in the Southeastern U.S.  Over the last 15 years, Larry has successfully matched hundreds of couples and singles with their dream homes in the region. To build his expertise, Larry has visited nearly 200 golf communities from Delaware south to Florida, plus others in Alabama, Tennessee and Texas.  He has interviewed dozens of developers, real estate professionals, golf pros and general managers and published more than 1,000 articles and objective reviews about golf communities, many of them at his website, GolfCommunityReviews.com, and in his free monthly newsletter, Home On The Course.  Have questions ahead of time? Send them directly to Larry at  editor@homeonthecourse.com

Please register and a Zoom link will be sent to you before the event.
