Instead of a Black Friday newsletter, I thought I would write you to thank you for your support and reliance on GolfCourseHome over the past 20 years–that’s how long we have been providing information, travel packages and news on master-planned golf and waterview communities. From first appearing as an insert into INC. Magazine in 1995, to debuting on the web in 1999 to launching our newsletter the following year, it has been our pleasure and often just plain fun.
More than that, the most gratifying moments during this time has been when I receive a letter or email telling me about the home a GCH visitor has just bought and how they used GolfCourseHome to plan trips and compare communities. Many of you have been subscribers to our newsletter for five, 10 years or longer. I can’t tell you how pleased that makes me and our editorial team feel.
Going forward, we are implementing many improvements. The mobile version of GolfCourseHome was just launched and you probably have already used it. We are adding the inquiry form right onto the Featured Community page itself which eliminates the need to click to the form.
And a new comparison feature will soon be launched in which you will be able to compare communities side by side for features and prices and then inquire to all your selections by filling out just one form.
GCH Retirement Planning Advisory Board
In addition, you may have noticed that we are focusing more on retirement planning. As part of that expanded editorial coverage, we are in the process of creating the new GCH Retirement Planning Advisory Board which will consist of industry experts who will be offering their advice and expertise in the new year on the many aspects of planning for retirement and retirement living. These additions are just the beginning of the list of improvements you will see in 2016.
This note has gotten long, but we don’t often take the time out to give thanks and take stock. We wish you and your families a wonderful and safe Holiday Season and look forward to providing the information you need to find that perfect home near the golf course or the water in 2016 and in the years ahead.
