Default Can we expect any improvement?

I just noticed the off season rates were published with an approximate increase of ~18%. Can we expect an 18% improvement in course conditions this summer? Just wondering.

That's to offset the 36% who stopped playing in the first place

May 1st to Dec 31st afternoon wave starts at 11:56 and a non-priority resident was $34 and is now $36, that's a 12.2% increase. That's all I'm concerned about.

I wouldn't care what they charge if they put money back into the courses. Conditions are atrocious for what we pay

When gas prices go up do you get better gas mileage? When the price of stamps increase, do you receive faster mail service?

Default 18% increase in greens fees will not result in corresponding improvement

For some reason I can't say "thanks" on your post. Allow me here to say Thanks.

A fan.

Actually it's only a 5.9% difference.

Last time I checked, gas prices have gone way down. I can remember paying $4 for a gallon of gas and now it’s below $2. Can’t say that I have ever seen green fees go down?

Good gawd! Do a bunch of you whiners get together and each one take turns on complaining about something here in The Villages?

If you can’t afford the $2.00, then it’s probably time you quit golf. Do you complain about The Villages when you lose your balls and have to buy more or when your grips wear out and you have to replace them?

Stop the incessant whining and complaining.

Man, I am with you 1000%, but good luck with some of the complainers. You can look back and see several of them have hundreds of complaints or blame.

I am sure they only want it to rain at night! If it rains during the day it will be the Morse's fault!
