Do you really think it's a glitch? If I ran The Villages.... I won't allow any links to my sites on TOTV. That's just me and MHO.

When it's 90 degrees and you're hitting a large bucket of balls, your glove is soaking wet, sweat is running down your face, and I have the choice of a T-shirt or a Nike collared golf shirt, which would you choose? Also getting a bucket 3 times the size of a $5 bucket for $7, that's nice too, but that's just me.

If you don't like the place, go 1/4 mile west turn left on 301 southbound, and look for a driving range 1 mile on your left. They are also grass only tees. Don't worry about dressing up with a collar shirt and all that stuff TV requires, these places are casual.
I've been to that range several times. The last time I was helping my wife and I was spoken to about giving lessons.

Also the condition of the teeing area is deplorable. I felt as though I was hitting out of a hole most of the time. It's difficult to find grass to hit from. They're more like dirt tees than grass tees.

I'm pretty sure it's a glitch. When you do a reply, the system allows you to insert a link (there is an icon with a paper clip in it that says "Insert Link" when you put your mouse over it). It just doesn't work once you've inserted it.

OK, I usually go the other one that I mentioned and they usually have grass. Go past Walmart get in the left land and turn left on US 301, maybe a 1/2 mile after Walmart. Go south, The Villages Oxford Oaks Homes subdivision will be on your right. Look on the left side of the road, they usually have a flag out front. The building is Accutech Car Repair on the front and the golf shop on the back. The parking lot is crushed shell, that's the only thing I don't like about the place.

The place on 301 is the Oxford Golf Center.

I'm familiar with that one as well. My only problem is that it's not golf cart accessible.
