They said that for two days there have been 2000 plus new cases in Fl due to the beach openings. I know we are not on the caosts, but the people that go there are often traveling through Th Villages. That puts us in danger. I believe it should be stopped.

Last time, pre Covid 19, I was required to pair up in a cart with another golfer who insisted on driving. I reluctantly put my stuff in his cart. I was having one of my best rounds ever when his electric cart ran out of juice on the 12th hole. Talk about ruining a good round of golf. Never again will I load my stuff into an electric golf cart.

From what I've witnessed playing here in the villages many people don't know what the 90 degree rule is or mean.

User error on the owners part....next time look at the meter. Had the same happen to me with a guy in a gas cart that insisted on driving....ran out of gas on the 16th hole. Then he asked me to drive him home.

They need to stick with the straight thru 18. That keeps the pace up, and allows the other 9 to recover.

If going back to two riders per cart is OK then lets take the PVC pipe out of cups!

Totally agree resting one nine per week or 2.

We never had issues using 3 if one of us had to bail for an appointment or a possible emergency departure from the course.
