Cars and carts, why wouldn’t that be an OVERPASS? Bridges like the ones already here make no sense to me. It would have to be a pretty substantial bridge to put cars on it. Who’s designing it? Someone impressive I hope

YOU ASKED A GOOD QUESTION. MANY OTHERS HAVE ASKED THE SAME THING ABOUT MANY THINGS SOUTH OF 44. It is obvious that The Villages has two different models of lifestyle. Did someone die and someone else take over????

The Villages is getting ahead of the curve planning for future generations of retirees. Fewer golf courses and restaurants to leave room for safe spaces and tattoo parlors.

Maybe Disc Golf? Never tried it, but seems to be very popular with the younger crowd. Plenty of videos on YouTube. Looks interesting. Natural environment and very low maintenence.

They will announce the location when they determine the location of a third bridge to reach it !

Developer has a handle on exactly what new buyers want. Have you noticed only 2 of the 9s are open on champions now. Tons of tee times, since January. We have been coming since 07, and have never seen the championship this slow. The draw south is the bike, running, walking trails with out a golf cart trying to pass you. Our children is the next generation buying here. They rarely play golf, but are very happy with the green space, and said definitely buying in the new area. They are 30 to 40 already looking to buy here.

No brainer It's here in " The Villages " south of CR44.

Plenty of videos to view. You will be able to play so just relax while the planners sort out the " New " golf course.

You will have many opportunities to play many, but please, please trust us....please.

Thank you. I saw that a while ago. Not to drift too far from the subject but I’m just curious why it’s projected as a 18 hole course when the last 10 Championship Courses built have been 27 holes. Any thoughts? Maybe it’s just the amount of land that’s available or maybe there is another reason. It is thought by some the amount of available property had something to do with why 18 holes became the golf course standard in Scotland years ago. A more sinister theory (why 18 holes) is that it took that many holes for a foursome to drink a bottle of Scotch as they strolled the coastal sand dunes commonly referred to as the links.

Good question, I don’t have the answer, except that it definitely is no because of a lack of land. It has become very apparent that golf is no longer nearly as important as walking trails under the new generation of the Villages developers family. Go figure? At least our home, which is near lots of Championship Golf, should retain its value as long as Golf remains important to retirees.
