My wife and I would be interested. Some of you may also be interested in The Villages Golf Club. Look at the web site. Search on villages golf club (can't post a URL in TOTV). They play Championship courses only both in and outside of The Villages.

Good morning to all interested parties, I'll try to address all questions on this post:
1) Executive and socializing afterwards? Sounds good to us as our 2nd group play of the week. Our 1st play of the week will be on a Championship course.
2) 9 or 18 holes? We're looking to play 18, but can start out doing 9 as a group and see how it goes.
3) Day(s) to play? Thursday, Friday or Saturday works best for us.
4) Snowbirds in group? Absolutely, as long as group has enough committed year round players.

Thanks for interest and responses/questions, once we get through a few filtering iterations to define and agree on group plan - we can all exchange names and e-mails.

My wife Susan and I would be interested. We played as a couple before on Championship courses after 5 when the sun and the price went down. We played a "scramble" format which made it more enjoyable for the short hitter in the couple. Of course, on execs, we play our own ball.

Please keep us posted.

Thank You.

Thanks, will check it out more closely if this group doesn't work out. We like to play late afternoon or twilight in summertime. We haven't found a group that does that.

Please add us to your list. My husband and I, will be new to TV (most likely in July) and want to meet new friends and golf buddies. We are still working out our logistics and depends how fast we can find a new home, after our Oregon house closes escrow. Please stay in touch.

1) Playing one or two rounds a week. One round on a Championship course, possible 2nd round TBD (Exec or Champ).
2) Playing Late Afternoon...when UV drops. Summertime after 5PM.
3) Good Golf Etiquette, Good Pace of Play.
4) Casual Fun Golf.
5) Mostly playing North of 466A.
6) Year round play? (Twilight in summer months).
7) Group Size (TBD). A set/committed number of pairs to create at least 2 or 3 foursomes would be ideal. Several "alternate pair" teams for filling in?

Hope to get started up by June!

We would be very interested. Championship preferred. We live south of 466A so "far north" anything past Glenview is a push for us. 5'ish time frame is perfect!
berniedeb@live.com - keep us posted.

I would be interested in playing. Sorry I am an "I" and not a we. I see most affirmative responses have been from couples. Maybe I could be included if a few singles other than myself respond. Thanks, GMAN.

COED golf group sounds fun. 9 holes on Championship course is perfect. Late afternoon on Friday perfect. June start perfect. Both my husband and I have been playing for a couple of decades and play mostly Championship courses, as someone mentioned forgiving and really fun. We're into social and enjoy fun golf games as well. Playing golf is the best reason we've found to meet great people!

Just touching base with all golfers, as the group list is growing quickly. 24 people (Listed below: 10 couples & 4 singles (2M's & 2F's)) have shown interest, this count doesn't include "snowbirds" or people wanting to play only Executive courses. For now I'd like to sort out the Championship course play for 1 day per week. We're open to Thursday, Friday or Saturday. One person has responded with a Friday request. The 9 or 18 hole play decision can be deferred until we really start playing, I expect some will play only 9, others will want 18.
