GOLF HOMES ON­LINE

The Daily Telegraph - Property - - Home & Abroad -

Could this be the an­swer to the prayers of the hordes look­ing for the per­fect place to lay their heads — and golf bags? A new “on­line TV mag­a­zine for golf prop­er­ties” points the way to scores of homes in the sun where they can in­dulge their pas­sion for hit­ting lit­tle white ball into a suc­ces­sion of holes in the ground.

Golfhome.tv has been set up by Jonathan Hem­mings, a 37-yearold, self-con­fessed golf nut. It aims to cash in on the world­wide mush­room­ing of de­vel­op­ments specif­i­cally linked to golf cour­ses.

“As a prospec­tive buyer my­self, I have been frus­trated at how long it takes to pin­point a golf home on hun­dreds of dif­fer­ent agents’ web­sites,” he says. “I want to make it eas­ier for peo­ple like me by pre­sent­ing high-qual­ity video, stills and de­scrip­tions of the best prop­er­ties and then pro­vid­ing a hotlink through to the de­vel­op­ers.”

The site is also in­tended to help those de­vel­op­ers to reach a wider tar­geted au­di­ence and sell their homes quickly. They are charged €1,000 to show their homes on the site for four months.

Coun­tries cur­rently fea­tured on the site in­clude Spain, Por­tu­gal, Morocco, Bul­garia and some of the Caribbean is­lands. De­tails: www. golfhome.tv Top golf­ing prop­er­ties all round the world will be fea­tured in the Tele­graph’s spe­cial Over­seas Prop­erty sup­ple­ment next Satur­day. Don’t miss it.
