Discusses development on the South Shore area, between Boston and Cape Cod, which has been growing over the past few years, but in those cases, "they were underway in terms of permits and financing while the economy was still strong." States that in Atlantic City, NJ during the mid 90s was booming with golf course development. Explains that developers are now turning their sights toward building new hotel rooms and shopping facilities. Discusses how courses have recently seen a slowdown, with development outpacing demand. Describes how the events of September 11 have slowed talk of developing the areas near little-used Ft. Story.

Highlights individual towns like Cape Cod, Mass., Ocean City, Maryland, Virginia Beach, Virginia, Williamsburg, Virginia, and Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head, South Carolina and how each has dealt with the golf and economy slump.
