THE TRUSTED GUIDE FOR GOLF, PRIVATE CLUB & ACTIVE-ADULT/VACATION-HOME COMMUNITIES
Scott Kauffman's Journalism Portfolio Highlights
Resort Living Inc. - March 5, 2018 Issue
By Scott Kauffman
After 18 years of covering global golf course development and resort-style real estate as a former Staff Writer for Golfweek Magazine and dozens of leading real estate and lifestyle publications, I’ve been recognized as one of the leading experts in golf and vacation homes, private club properties, and active-adult/resort-style communities.
My passion for this lifestyle and real estate industry niche has given me the pleasure of visiting and experiencing many of the world’s finest master-planned communities ever created. From the exclusive Ke’olu Golf Course/Hualalai Club at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on the Big Island of Hawaii to President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach to Tavistock Group’s premier private club communities in Orlando, Isleworth and Lake Nona, I've also been fortunate to have trusted access to the leading developers and marketing directors driving these quintessential communities and clubs.
Now, in an exciting new chapter of my journalism career, I'm excited to share my years of knowledge, trusted access and global insights with the debut of Resort Living Inc. This biweekly publication has one mission: Be the most trusted news source for golf, private club and resort-style real estate properties worldwide.
At the very least, I look forward to keeping my readers ahead of the real estate development curve and sharing some of the best places in the world to live, work and play.

While much of America struggled during the last financial crisis, Texas grew in greater economic stature on a number of levels. Fueled by a thriving job market, one strong growth area was real estate development.
Texans have always had a strong affinity to golf so it’s no surprise real estate communities, resorts and private clubs feature golf as a central component. Two top leisure properties in Texas are 72-hole Horseshoe Bay Resort in Texas Hill Country and TPC Four Seasons at Las Colinas, home to the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.
If the ferocity of this year’s winter is any reminder, there’s a reason millions of American and Canadian “snowbirds” head south each year for the winter months. Indeed, as Boston is literally buried in snow and other major cities are having some of their harshest wintry conditions in years, the Sun Belt has never looked better as a leisure and vacation home destination.
When Captain James Cook was credited with discovering Hawaii in 1778, the British explorer landed on what is considered one of the most remote land masses in the world. Situated near the center of the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii is a long 2,390 miles west of California and 3,850 miles east of Japan.
Remote status notwithstanding, visitors continue to flock to this dreamy Pacific Ocean paradise. For full disclosure, my family discovered Hawaii in 1977 and we’ve been residents ever since.
