Default Golf is exercise

Golf is exercise and as a general rule not a profitable business. Since it’s beginning, The Villages has been a golfing and golf cart community. “Free golf for the rest of your life”! Of course, the free golf is only on the executive courses and these courses are maintained by your amenities fees. Golfing is certainly safer than going to the grocery three or four times a week. BTW it is much safer from Coronavirus than Pickleball, softball, playing cards, pools, etc. etc. and in recent days made even safer with the changes made. Is it totally safe, probably not, but neither is going to get your mail. Folks, chill out and relax a bit and don’t make life more miserable by anxiety and remember “when you throw dirt you just lose ground”. Have a good day.
