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

Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES

NEWTOWN, CT--(Marketwire - April 22, 2009) - GolfCourseHome.net and the Golf Course Home® Network announces its Second Annual "Best of the Best" (http://tinyurl.com/cy3p3n) golf community rankings -- the Network's compendium of rankings that takes into account all major media rankings of golf courses and golf communities for this year.

With so many lists today -- the "rankings season" extends from October to March -- it's hard to know who has won what honors. Ratings range from Best New Course to Best Residential to 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 has done the next best thing -- it took a look at all the current rankings and identified all GolfCourseHome Featured Communities that have received accolades and identifies them in a suitable rankings compendium -- the "Best of the Best."

Topping the list for the second year in a row is Reynolds Plantation, GA, which captured 13 major magazine awards.
