Default greens fees

We will be renting for Jan and Feb '13 and we are trying to find out the cost to play golf at both championship and executive courses. We will be renting from a home owner. Can someone help us with what the charges will be to play? Thanks; we are excited to check out TV for a few months and make a decision about retiring here!

Here is the page with the greens fees for the Championship courses.
http://golfthevillages.com/images/winterRates2012.pdf If you get an ID from the home owner ($50.00) you can play the exec courses for $3.50. Getting a tee time is a bit different than elsewhere go here to see what I am talking about http://www.golfthevillages.com/tee-times/index.asp

I'll say getting a tee time is a bit different - here it is in the dead heat of summer and I can't for the life of me get an early tee time for 4 during the next week. Can't even imagine what it will be like in the winter.

I have a foursome, non-priority, and we have been playing all summer in the morning.........usually between 8:30 & 9:30.
How many courses are in your request? How wide is your time window?
We played last winter every week and got bumped..........once.

executives are free if you walk the coarse...easily done because they are almost all par 3's..$3.50 is a trail fee for your galf cart.I played 9 at the mallory hill country club and it was 9 bucks including the trail fee....the beer after the game cost more but enjoyable !

Several items to consider: Are you a Priority Member or just a Resident Member? Add more courses to your request and increase the size of your available time window. It helps to be a little flexible. Look in the Daily Sun at the weeks golf schedule and it will let you know exactly which courses are closed on any given day. Also, because of the wave tee time system, available tee times are from 7:28am - 9:28am and 11:56am - 1:56pm. There are no available tee times between 9:28am & 11:56am.

Go to Golf The Villages, select Golfing in The Villages and then look for "For additional information you can click here to view the Golfing In The Villages brochure" and click on here.

Hope this helps.

It is easy to walk most of the Executive Courses. However, many are not able for various reasons. The Championship Courses are different story and even when you can walk you better be "Strong and able" because they are built around homes and many times a long way between holes. If you give yourself plenty of window and several golf courses, you can get tee times in the winter. If you don't mind playing as a single, you can play everyday.

It is not necessary to look up the closed courses. The tee time reservation system will show closed courses for the day you are requesting.

If you make a tee time and don't show up, you are penalized and sent to the bottom of the list.

If others in your foursome play frequently than your foursome will have more difficultie getting the tee time you want because of their frequent play.
