Sorry, but Florida golf course scenery does not compare to that of northern courses.

When the leaves change in the fall the courses in New England are breathtakingly beautiful...add to the view that nice crisp air and bingo, it didn't matter if my long and short game weren't coming together like I had hoped....and if you hit into the rough, you and your buddies weren't afraid to go in and find it

The first holes at the Lakes and Oaks at Hacienda Hills are now the least scenic holes in the Villages.

The top photo is of the 15th hole of Trull Brook Golf Course in Tewksbury, MA. It was named as the most picturesque hole in New England and was on the cover of Golf Digest Magazine

The bottom photo is of the ninth hole at the Myopia Hunt Club in Hamilton MA, site of 4 US Opens. The ninth was named as one of the 100 best holes in the United States by Golf Digest.

Myopia is possibly the most scenic course I've ever been on. I wish I could find a few more pictures of it.

The 7th at Riley is definitely scenic, but a couple of the most scenic courses I've been lucky enough to have played (including Pebble), in my opinion, were in Sedona, AZ. and Cherokee, NC.

I like the lighthouse, none of the other gulf courses seem to have one. Although they are beautiful. I like Pebble Beach best myself, and the gulls love the ketchup people at the club house have with their fries.

He did mention that it was The Villages locale. Maybe you missed that.
