I totally agree with your post, but I wish people would stop posting how good TDS is. A couple years ago it was priced the same as Orange Blossom, now it is priced the same as Palmer.

I guess this is the cost to have a nice course. They all should be nice.

Agree. Played it Tuesday and it's in great condition. Advice: Don't leave your ball above the hole. Your downhill putts will fly by the hole.

Default I played Tierra today as well.

The course is in better shape than most of our courses. The greens are fast and in very good shape. So, please, don't play it!! Keep it in great shape for me!!!! 😂

Oh, yeah! Mrs. KC and I played it today; those downhill putts are super quick. I like them fast, the faster they are, the truer they putt.

Great to hear as playing tomorrow. Also Cain Garden is in the best shape I have seen in 14 years. Fairways on Cain are the best in TV. Greens lush shape but a bit slow.

When I came to TV nearly eight years ago, when our group played at TDS I was always disappointed, as it was one of the worst courses in my opinion. Now, I believe it is by far the best course in The Villages. Full disclosure, I haven't played either Belle Glade or Evans Prairie yet this year, but have played the rest. The conditions are just great, and although I struggle sometimes with fast greens, you just can't complain about these. Fast, firm and true. Love it.

Okay played TDS yesterday and the greens are fairly fast but not smooth. Found many greens uneven and bumpy. Fairways pretty good shape considering no rain. Again I have no idea how Cain is keeping their fairways amazing.
