Default 108 holes in three days

Having out-of-town guests here.


We are playing 36 today, 36 tomorrow, 36 Thursday.


Belle Glade & Mallory today.


Both courses were in great shape.


Belle greens were long and a little slow.............but that's great, let the grass grow and don't shave every day.


More to come tomorrow.

Jealous, sounds like lots of fun. You must have a good back and OK knees. Keep the course condition updates coming.

I do a similar golf marathon once a year when my golf buddies come south for a visit, but 6 days in a row of 27 a day is about all my knees can handle (with lots of ice and Aleve). Have fun : )

Don't do 36 anymore, but played many days in a row when friends came in a few weeks ago.

We can all wish for our younger days and better health. I’m just happy to get two 9’s in on a championship course and a couple of 9’s a week on the executive courses. Keep swinging and never give up.

HOT TUB, HOT TUB, I need a HOT TUB.............Who has a HOT TUB??????????????????????????


I have body parts that need TLC.


Woweeeeeeeeeeeeee.


A great day.


Started at Cane Garden. Lots of grass in the fairways and the green were running nice. Very Happy with the conditions.


Afternoon at Havana. Fairways could use more grass, but very playable. Greens were good. Couple weeks of heat and water, fairways will be perfect.


The visitors are very impressed with The Villages.


A quick shower, heading to Lake Sumter. Don't worry, I will tell them Know there is no P'ing in Lake Sumter.

An Early Report = No 18 this afternoon.


Woke up surprising well after the second days of 36.


Decided to only dew 18 today.


Evans Prairie today.


Pleasantly surprised.
Have heard the course was marginal, but it has rebounded nicely.............if it was marginal.
Normal thin grass fairways, very nice greens.
If I was forced to express an opinion........hard greens.
I noticed the ball was hitting harder and bouncing higher.
I'm a hard ball, less control, golfer so I got what I deserve.


Saw an Easter Egg Hunt at Big Cypress.
Wasn't much of a HUNT. I think we have lost the art of hiding Easter Eggs.


SO..............108, less 18 for three days.
The guests enjoyed the days, the courses and the dining.
(None of them are from NY, so no experts in the group.)


Thank-you The Villages for a great place to entertain.
