Pretty expensive solution.

It all sounds like panic to me.

Both of them need to realize that sometimes how you approach people dictates the response to them. If someone approaches me with an attitude that their s**t doesn't stink and everything has to be their way, things are not going to go their way.

Maybe they've been approaching people at the golf courses the wrong way for those 8 years.
That was an unnecessarily nasty response to a very real health concern.

Except for the proximity issue mentioned, it’s one of the safest activities from the virus perspective

Well spoken,Villages Florida. Common sense should rule right now and allow your husband to ride by himself. Which is more important, keeping him healthy or protecting some turf?

1. You can ride along in his cart as an observer. They even give you a tag stating that you are riding along and not playing. 2. People ride alone in a cart all the time. I would call the golf office and report the courses.

When this was discussed 8 years ago there wasn’t the threat of catching a deadly virus and likely dying from it. These are different times and call for different rules. Separation in golf carts and on the course should be encouraged right now.

I will concur with this! My significant other also works at a championship course and came home and told me this information. I can't believe an employee wouldn't be informed as they ALL get the same information before each shift.

It would seem that considering The Villages has shut down much of its entertainment venues that some consideration could be given to those of us who are trying to maintain some semblance of a normal life, yet do all we can to protect ourselves? So, he won’t be playing any of the courses here for the foreseeable future. We are in a high risk group when it comes to this virus and allowing individual carts would be a responsible and sensible thing for The Villages to do. I understand that during normal life and in a perfect world cart traffic is restricted to protect the courses, etc. They might as well just close all of the courses here. Jamming people together in close proximity is exactly what we are being told not to do. Yes, we are isolating at home and keeping a distance from others when we DO have to go out. Today, while picking up two prescriptions at CVS I had to ask the guy in line behind me to back off. He was literally a foot behind me, breathing down my neck. It’s time we all help each other get through this. We aren’t asking for much, just some space so that we can remain safe.
Being in a high risk group why would you want to do anything? Not picking on you but if you’re that worried about having a person in the cart with you, you must not go anywhere, so why would you want to play golf? In your defense though I saw just this morning on the news that some of the security people in the airports were checked & had Coronavirus. So I really know how you might feel about having people sit right next to you! But staying home could mean staying home & never going out for months.

I think you better reread what it said word for word. They said “In a high risk group” meaning TV as the whole group of us not just them! I know they said “WE” but I’m sure they meant WE as anybody could get in contact with the virus.

Your hope that ambassadors and staff of the villages will be better trained and informed..... Do not hold your breath.. it will never happen. Staff turnover, and lack of care about the job they have, ( a stop gap until they can retire on full pension) means no hope of good training. I am lucky the center I deal with are great.. I hope the Villages does not move them out, which they tend to do.
