Allegiant Airlines Expands into Golf, Resort Business

Allegiant Airlines is known for being one of the fastest-growing low-cost airlines. Now it's becoming a player in the golf course business after buying Kingsway Country Club near Punta Gorda Airport in Southwest Florida. Not far away is Allegiant's soon-to-be opened $420 million Sunseeker Resort. (Editor's Note: This was Scott Kauffmans cover story that appeared in Golf Business magazine, March 2019 issue).

Resort Living Inc. - March 14, 2018 Issue

March 14, 2018

After more than18 years of covering global golf course development and resort-style real estate as a longtime Staff Writer for Golfweek Magazine and dozens of leading real estate and lifestyle publications, I’ve been recognized as the leading expert in golf course business, 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 experiencing many of the world’s finest master-planned communities ever created. Places like 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.

Along the way, I've also been fortunate to have trusted access to the leading developers, sales and marketing executives and public relations directors driving these quintessential communities and clubs.

Now, in an exciting new chapter of my journalism career, I'm excited to share my many years of knowledge, access and global insights with the debut of Resort Living Inc. This biweekly publication has one mission: Be the most trusted source of market intelligence for golf, private club and resort-style real estate properties worldwide.


At the least, I look forward to keeping readers ahead of the real estate development curve and sharing inspiring stories of innovation, success and growth from the men and women that give meaning to Resort Living. Welcome Home as I continue my pursuit of the world’s best places to Live, Work and Play!

By Scott Kauffman 

With more than 150 golf courses and hundreds of the game’s top touring professionals calling it home, Orlando is arguably the “Golf Capital of the World.” So picking a piece of the tourist mecca for my recent golf getaway was as difficult as sticking an island green approach shot from 200 yards with my 3-iron.

January Luxury Living Report

January 01, 2017

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.

February Luxury Living Report

February 01, 2017

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.

March Luxury Living Report

March 01, 2017

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.
