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!

This is exactly the kind of thing my wife and I are interested in doing, once we finally get there. Having a regularly scheduled co-ed group to play with and then socializing afterward, is part of our overall dream of living in TV - so will be checking back.

My wife and I are interested, but I might also be interested in joining as a single sometimes. Will that be possible?

We've had a good turnout so far as follows: A) 27 people (12 couples and 3 singles (1M & 2F's)) interested in Group Play as defined in original post, B) 8 people (4 couples) as "snowbirds", C) 6 people (3 couples) for Executive courses only. D) 2 People (1 couple) have future interest, no at TV yet. As mentioned previously, the focus for now is getting Group "A" sorted out and playing by June. I'd like to let this percolate for a few days to get feedback from people on preferences for day to play golf, format suggestions, any concerns or issues with group golf and every individual's personal choices. The group is for golf fun & enjoyment only...sorry to have to emphasize this, but we hope all can leave their politics at home for a few hours. Thanks!

Shouldn't be an issue, even at last minute dropping a foursome to a threesome is no big deal.

If you stick to one particular day of the week, that may cut out a number of interested people. Most of us have at least one day of the week we can't play as we are part of other groups/activities. I can't make Friday's or Sundays for instance. Varying the day of the week would allow all those interested to play at least some of the time. Just a thought. Juli and I would be interested in a mix of 9-hole exec and 18-hole championship but mainly the championship courses. Juli has had foot surgery so will be out for a number of weeks and we have a 2 month RV trip planned starting mid-June.
Mike and Juli.

OK, let's try to move this group effort forward. Anyone that's ready to start playing weekly Championship course starting the first week of June, please provide the following info to me at grayesun@thevillages.net:

1) Name or Names
2) TOTV ID (verification)
3) E-Mail address
4) Day(s) You're Available to Play Golf

Once the group roster of weekly players is finalized, I'll need additional info to set up reservations & be able to contact players with last minute changes/updates.

5) Villages ID#
6) Phone Number

Any players that responded to this initial start-up inquiry that aren't ready to start in June or only interested in Executive course play, please stand-by until we get the Championship golf kicked off.

Thanks.
