They also stated that there were toomany bukers and some would be taken out. Tierra Del Sol is being totally redone with a new type of grass that should help. Yes, they just did Tierra a whlie ago but they screwed it up so here we go again. All of the champ golf courses will be redone with the newer grasses eventually. Fromthe timeline I have heard we unfortunately will all be dead before this happens. Usage of manpower was also talked about. How many of you have seen 4 guys raking a bunker that gets no play. Some of these I never knew were on the course! The people in charge know the golf courses could be in better shape, they admitted it. Many other issues were discussed at this meeting but my post is long already. I must say that after the meeting, I am not convinced that for me at least these courses will be any better. They will just keep nickle and diming us to death and we will pay and keep playing and complaining.
The bottom line is that the convenience to jump in our golf carts and drive to the course, is a strong draw to put up with conditions that would be unacceptable at commiserate priced courses where you drive to...and have a bag drop.

Not saying that we're a 'captured audience,' but there is no doubt that 'THEY' know...we'll still play and that obviously has an impact on how much they spend on maintenance.

As to those who are "sick & tired" of those complaining about course conditions, might I suggest you show some self-restraint...and just quit reading any posts in the "THE VILLAGES GOLF COURSE CONDITIONS" FORUM?


Hint: That's THIS forum.

If the complainers do not like the conditions of the courses here, and it's just their opinion, they can go elsewhere and pay the gas to get there and pay the green fees to play there. It's a simple decision for them; all the roads out of TV leads to a golf course somewhere for them to play.
I read a lot of stuff on TOTV that I don't agree with. Complaints about one thing or another, people who go the opposite route and find everything about The Villages to be perfect. The bottom line is, if a person doesn't like reading about golf course complaints, then just go to another forum. Golf course conditions generally in The Villages are mediocre, residents need a place to vent, and this is it.

Ahh the golf. The price is right and the availability is lovely and all golf cart accessible. Golf here is not the Golf of our past, but it is fine.

I played OBH on Tuesday and I'm happy to report the greens were in excellent shape. No weeds, few, if any bare spots, and the grass was lush. The ball rolled very well, but unfortunately for me, they were pretty slow and I never got the speed right all day. My group all commented that the course was in very good condition compared to past years.
