What do you think?
I won’t for a really long time; I don’t know where the rider has been or who they’ve been around.

I like more just riding by myself; really don’t like to talk on the course and don’t like to listen to everyone else’s problems or medical issues.

Default With virus spike, bad idea

I was told that yesterday at Evans Prairie as I checked in and in the club shop for the first time. I said no way, not yet as the virus is back on the rise. We have done a good job of controlling it up to now why in hell would we risk that at this time!?!? If a substantial infection gets a foothold in the Villages, a lot of people are going to die. Dumb idea at this time.

Really strains the fairways with so much traffic, especially in dry seasons.

Media hype. According to the Florida Department of Health, 1,461,297 tests done. Total positive cases are 80,109 which is only 5.5%. That's steady and still low. It's just as DeSantis has been telling us all along, the number of known cases will increase because there is more testing being done, not because there is a resurgence. The number of reported cases are usually higher at the beginning of the week because it includes the cases that had not been reported over the weekend.

I agree with you. On average our regular group we play in have tended to be 8 to 12 minutes faster than before riding together. I think it's because there is less tendency to get off track with conversation and distraction. We plan on doing so until told otherwise.

I normally take myself to and from the courses so I can do it on my own schedule of when I want to arrive and warm up before hand and I can listen to my tunes on the ride.

Why!? Did they find a vaccine? A new treatment that cures the virus? Florida numbers went way up in one day!

I agree, but I asked an Ambassador the other day and he said the courses are "taking a beating" with all the carts and HE THINKS but does not know for sure that eventually, things go back to the old way.

Not a rumor, just his opinion.

I will NOT allow anyone I don't know ride on MY cart also I will NOT ride on THEIR cart...
That's the way it should be, ride your own cart or walk!

Please use the 90 degree rule. It may allow us to do single rider rule longer. I see very few people doing 90 degree.

Two carts only on the grass at a time, you can have 4 carts if you like but only two carts can be on the grass, once one cart comes off the grass another cart can enter.....

Is the Ambassador willing to pay you $4.00 to have someone you don't even know ride on your cart..
