Default Golf outside the villages

Have played all the courses near the villages, including Ocala, Citrus Hills, Brooksville.

Looking to play an exceptional nice course for a special treat, willing to travel 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Any recommendations.

TPC Sawgrass is worth the trip. And you can make it a 2 or 3 day trip and also play both courses there plus the courses at World Golf Hall of Fame. They keep them all in excellent condition. Make it a really special treat.

Streamsong would be my second choice.

Have you tried Juliette Falls in Dunellon? I played it about 18 months ago and the conditions were great, the course conditions were perfect and the layout was the best I've played in Central Florida. It's less than an hour West of The Villages.

Better make sure your side hill lie game is working. There is not a level lie anyplace on that course. The ball is always above or below your stance.

Haven't played it yet, but Streamsong has 2 courses that are very highly rated. Built over quarry lands and pretty expensive.
