Golf Superintendents Keep Up Villages' 693 Holes From Behind the Scenes | Sports | thevillagesdailysun.com

I have a big fat zero for my number of holes of golf played here in the Villages and likewise for anywhere else as I never have played the game.

Anyone played all 693 holes? Got 693 holes in one?

We lived near a golf course in Rohnert Park, CA. Or, my parents did. So, I am no stranger to golf courses. The golf course in Rohnert Park was right out our back door as my parents house bordered the green. Welcome to Foxtail Golf Club

Well, I've played all 306 champ holes, and exactly 18 exec holes, with another 9 exec holes coming up on Thursday.

No one has 693 holes in 1, Mancil Davis holds the record with 51, but I'm sure plenty of Villagers have played all 693

Wife and I have played every Exec course north of 44.
Were going to play all the Execs south of 44 last year, but Covid said no!
Looks as though we will not be cluttering any courses this winter either, if entry to US is still denied.
We gave up championship courses when we found the walking getting a bit to much for us.
Still walk executives, as that is the proper way to play golf!

You have been very busy.

I think my Mom got one hole-in-one here in the Villages.

Another question-----since there are 41 exec courses =369 holes and 306 champ holes (10x27+2x18), that equals 675 holes. Are you counting the anticipated opening of Southern Oaks 18, or the "pitch and putt" "courses", which shouldn't count?

If we count the putting course in Feeney I can proudly say I have played 9 holes.

Going by a statistic in The Villages Daily Sun today which mentioned 693 holes of golf.

How many golf courses are in The Villages?

Right now there are an astonishing 693 holes of golf spread out across 12 championship courses and 42 executive courses.

In case you were wondering, that’s more than any other community in the world!

I played with a guy once who took great pride in playing every hole at least once a year. He said he’d often play rounds both morning and afternoon.

It’s possible of course, but you’d have to be a master at using the golf tee time system and lucky with the weather. And you’d be clocking LOTS of miles on your golf cart

Over the 10 years I have been here, I have played them all, and many more outside of the villages.

The Marsh View Pitch & Putt is listed as an executive course. 18 holes, so there's your 693.
