Do you think anyone will complain about the price?

Don't forget to rake the traps, fix divots on the greens and sand the divots on the fairways...…………...

And the complaining begins before the fact. Last year it was posted the courses were destroyed. I live directly on and played the same course for years on Christmas. No change observed here free or charges. Everyone was and has been respectful and played at the same pace as normal - 18 holes less than 4.5 hours.

I don't see a complaint...... where is it? You might be the site expert on complaining. So I ask where is it?

I asked a question and Bogie posted a request......

The first time I played Christmas golf was in 2011 and Bonifay had just opened two months earlier, except for Pensacola was still closed. I got there at 7:15 and I was about #35 in line, the first two guys said they got there about 4:30am. We were all lined up down the sidewalk up to the Destin starter shack and then they said, anybody want to play just nine holes, turn around and go to the Ft. Walton starter shack. Now, I'm #23 in line for 18 holes. Then they said, anybody here a single, and I said, that's me. Now, I'm next on the tee. What I saw when we came in about noon, there wasn't one person waiting to tee off. So if you don't want to wait, go later. Also on the way home I past Turtle Mound and Sand Hill Executives and nobody was waiting, later is better.

I don't see a complaint either. Oh dear the sky is not falling but last year the posts after the free Christmas golf was like a war zone occurred. I am reminding everyone before we go that route again - not in my experience and I'll bet I've played approximately 15 years of rounds of Christmas golf here in TV. My opinion is it is a wonderful jester for TV to provide free golf on Christmas. I have not seen it abused more than the normal abusers who don't rake sand traps or replace divots on a normal day.[COLOR="Red"] Spread the word. [/COLOR]Folks championship golf is FREE on Christmas and you can bring up to three guests without even a guest pass as long as you have your residence card.

Merry Christmas, my only complaint is that we can't be there to enjoy it : ( Oh well, we will be playing at the Villages on New Years day : )

I don't know what course you live on, but I also live right on a championship course and have observed the Christmas carnage for 5 years now. There is a fairway trap 20 yards from my lanai, and the rakes were viewed as ornamental. 95% of divots were not filled, and I'm 200 yards from the green but it didn't look like any pitch marks were repaired. Playing the course 2 days later confirmed this. CW is right, it's a wonderful jester, but the gesture was ill conceived.
