Really bad conditions on way too many executive courses. Add Bogart to the list of the above examples. Spare yourself the mistake and don't take any guests there. It is the peak season when the potential for house sales are high. Once you get past the pretty flowers in the roundabouts and onto the deplorable conditions on these "free" golf courses, you may get second thoughts. The excuse of "heavy play" at this time of year just doesn't cut it anymore, when other area courses and a few of our own executive courses are in much better shape.

He sent someone to look at my complaint and they installed a temp green the next day. But, they should inspect all the exec greens and do something about the overall condition.

Agreed. Ive defended course maintenance for many years, but it's getting old being slammed in the winter months only to close in the summer months. Redfish and Tarpon have both been closed more than once in recent years.

In just 12 days, JUST 12 DAYS, there will be thousands and thousands of fewer feet pummeling the golf courses here.

That will be a good start toward recovery. The nine hole courses are booked more consistently and used more than other courses in this country, I would guess.


But we all do love snowbirds, having been that species ourselves, most of us.

Good morning. It is a beautiful day in The Villages.

Just a observation of mine, but it appears to me your "words of wisdom" are geared towards softening up this concern. Why not just allow people to vent and just maybe some of the concerns will be heard. You know, maybe the courses are in bad shape and they do need more attention and management needs to speak up and take accountability for whats been happening.
Imagine going to McDonalds at lunch time, their busy time, and getting a substandard hamburger and then having the manager say...well you know, its our busy time!
