Why not just rent a cart. Lopez is a destination for us we just take the car and rent a cart

"...To play you need a cart....", I've heard this sentiment often used here in TV. Well, I'm sure that is true for some folks, as they are not physically able to walk that distance. I'm from Pa., usually I walk, and there are many senior golfers up in Pa. that walk almost every day, and we don't slow thing down either. Down here in TV it is rare to see walkers. It's great exercise. And yes, this is on a regulation size 18 hole course. I don't see many walkers down here and, IMHO, those that can walk should consider doing so, especially on the executive courses. As I said, that is only my humble opinion.

That's why I said it was something I hadn't done in 5 years, because normally I do drive my car and rent a cart. My neighbor and I just wanted to try something different. I was surprised it only took 40 minutes from Tamarind Grove to Lopez, I was thinking closer to an hour and my cart has not been sped up. We normally don't even play Lopez because we have one fellow in our group who lives in Labelle, but it's $5 cheaper with the new winter rates over the southern courses, so we gave it a shot. We'll probably play it more often.

We just bought in Linden and were told "sometime this year". I can understand how Alan is disappointed....but it's kinda like any type of sales, they are probably going to lean pretty hard on the upside and maybe gloss over the downside. Big construction plus (I'm guessing) plenty of red tape can lead to unexpected delays, unfortunately it's just a fact of life sometimes.

The bridges will be here soon, until then, as already mentioned, it's a pretty easy drive

I couldn’t have said it better. The villages isn’t the same as it was when me Schwartz and Gary Morse were in charge. All in infrastructure went in first then the houses were built. I’m sure they are both turning over in their graves

Just when were you in charge? And who are you?

Am I being negative to the Villages..... NO, I'm realistic and say what I see. I love the Villages but the trend has changed to the negative for me...

The infrastructure implementation hasn't changed.
I believe what people have concluded is there are homes being built and there are rec centers under construction as well.....but not related to the completed homes/village or neighborhood.
Why would they change their proven process time and time again, over many, many, MANY years and thousands of homes built.....until now?
