2008 "Best of the Best" Golf Community Rankings Released by GolfCourseHome®Network

List Considers All Major Rankings in Compiling List Where Golf and Golf Living Are No. 1

NEWTOWN, CT--(Marketwire - March 12, 2008) - and the GolfCourseHome®Network announces its first annual "Best of the Best" golf community rankings -- the Network's new compendium of rankings that takes into account all major media rankings of golf courses and golf communities.

With so many lists today, it's hard to know is who has won what honors -- the "rankings season" extends from October to February. Ratings range from Best New Course to Best Residential to Best Public to Best Private to Best Classic to Best Modern from Top 100 to Top 50 and more.

GolfCourseHome does not send out field researchers and raters in pursuit of its own, proprietary ranking system. But instead had done the next best thing -- taken a look at all the current rankings and identified all GolfCourseHome Featured Communities that have received accolades and has identified them in a suitable rankings compendium -- the "Best of the Best."

Topping the GolfCourseHome compilation is a fabulous Front Nine, which is led by Reynolds Plantation, Greensboro, GA, which has received no less than 13 awards from a variety of publications for 2007-08. Palmetto Bluff, Bluffton, SC; Sea Pines, Hilton Head Island, SC; Homestead Preserve, Warm Springs, VA, and Barton Creek Resort & Spa, Austin, TX, round out the top five.
