Default Mallory Hill Golf Course

I just saw on the golf The Villages website that starting tomorrow Mallory Hill will be closed until further notice. Does anyone know why? It’s unusual for an entire Championship course to be closed during the busy season.

I saw that the Amelia nine is closed until further notice. Is there more?

I haven't played there in a very long time, so am wondering if the conditions have become...THAT bad?

My husband is a 10 handicap and played there today. he told me it was a very good idea to close the course. He said the greens were in bad shape.

Hopefully they will replace the greens with the turf used at Tierra Del Sol.

Spread wrong fertilizer on the greens. Just another example of the ineptitude of these people. It would be a perfect time to redo the greens. But do not forget the new grasses cost more so I doubt it will happen. Just too much common sense. As a side played Palmer today. It was OK,seen it better seen it worse.

Played Palmer last Saturday and it was good, but there was a lot of sand on the greens that effected the putting. Not sure why, I know they sand the greens after airification, but the greens are not punched during the winter?

Remember everyone any sports facility above SR44 is of little interest to the Villages Maintenance now.. Its all about Fenney.

I played there last Sunday and the greens were like rolled mud, with some grass showing through. I did make a 100 foot birdie putt though. We had reservations for Amelia, but they changed us to Virginia/Caroline. The rest of the course was in great shape, just the greens that were bad.

Just another statement from someone with no idea about how the villages work. Mallory Maintenance has NOTHING to do with any other place.
