Yep.

I took a visiting friend out on Palmer recently and I was embarrassed, knowing this was supposed to be...among the best we have to offer?

He was impressed overall with TV, but was totally underwhelmed with the 'value' of Palmer...particularly compared to some nearby courses he played.

Actually, Orlando is gotten to by heading down; Ocala is headed up; Daytona Beach is headed over and St. Pete/Clearwater is headed over.

Now that the geography lesson is over, the courses will be back; The Villages just took the Golf Division back over in late December and the courses will be back.

Some great courses, in excellent condition...at a much better "value."

I also get a chuckle from (and shake my head at) those who are trying to (incorrectly) correct/admonish you, to their simple-minded preferred way to describe directions...based apparently on north being at the top of a map page.

If one were really trying to be totally accurate, the use of 'up-to' and 'down-to' in regards to a map direction...would be based on altitude.

In which case, since The Villages is officially at 75 ft. above sea level and Orlando is 102 ft. above sea level...one would in fact go 'up-to' Orlando from here.

Although facts should matter...pettiness rates more views..

Cold you are correct. Florida is a strange up and down state. Just east of Clermont is the seconds highest point in Florida. We have rivers that flow north instead of south. St. John’s for one. Sorry geography is off the subject matter.

We played Yankee Clipper on Monday. Fairways and grass near the greens were not in good shape. Greens were inconsistent and bumpy. 3 putted 3 times but perhaps I need a different putter 😜 so I told the wife.
