I have not played much on that side of the state. I am sure the courses (like around here) are packed during snowbird season and easy to get tee times (and cheaper) in the summer.
All I am going to suggest is to have a job when you move down - the job market is pretty rough down here.
I moved down 10 years ago with,out a job but things were different and I was employed (well below my skill level) within a month - now I am flooded with people bugging me for a job (they think I do nothing all day and it is all easy - but they have no idea what we did to build our brand) Even retail jobs are taking a big hit.
Depending on your field, it can be tough to even get an interview before you move - I cant tell you how many times I flew down here for interviews only to find out that they would not take me seriously until I had a Florida address.
Good luck in your search!
Thanks. I don't plan on moving anywhere until I have a job(written offer,etc). I have been a mainframe developer/analyst for 27 years. 7 years ago, my job was outsourced and been consulting on and off since. Only worked 40% if the time. It's worse now because there is INsourcing too. Sucks. No jobs for Americans. Anyway, I see, and get Emails, for contract positions all over. No way. Move somewhere and 3 - 12 month contract ends, then what? This is a full time with benefits. I was thinking of taking a chance then, maybe get a studio, or 1br apt, even a furnished apt, incase it doesn't work out. Full time means nothing now days too unfortunately. Then if it lasts, get something larger and more furniture. But it is only a thought(dream), since I send dozens of resumes a month and hear nothing. They go into a black hole and disappear. Wow, didn't even think about the snowbirds crowding the courses. Oh well. Again, thanks for your input. We shall see.
