People's passion for golf manifests itself in many ways. Some enjoy the game so much, they want to make it a prominent part of their retirement surroundings. This work functions as both an informative source for golfing aficionados who are looking for a place to retire, and as a helpful guide for non-golfers in the family. Here, details on golf communities in six southeastern states are presented: North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. Organized by state, each chapter begins with information on state and city populations; sales, income and social security taxes; and a geographical description. Each state is divided into geographical areas that offer attractive retirement and golfing opportunities. For each city listed, a general introduction (including data from the 2000 Census) is provided. Information on the golf courses, a variety of real estate options, nearby dependable health care services, convenient and varied shopping, favorable year-round climate, continuing education opportunities, nearby recreation, attractions, and dining, and regional artistic and cultural amenities is offered. Lists of both a state's nationally ranked and overall best golf courses, as determined by Golf Digest, are also included at the end of each chapter.Places to Live and Play in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas Dennis J.
