Default golf

there are many fine golf courses in the village and this is a great thing. I am thinking that a really great addition to the Villages would be to build a miniature golf course. I know that many people would use a facility like this and the stress of regular golf would simply disappear. Think that this idea has any merit?

I think I'm right in saying that there is one at Treetops beside the American Legion.

Regular golf should not be stressful. It's not for me anyway.

Regular golf is NOT stressful for me. It's my release!

If its stressful , I do not think one should NOT participate...........Too many other stress relievers.

I am not sure it would be a success. It would have to be a private company that would have to build and run it. I doubt The Villages would provide it as an amenity.

It would need to be pretty big to fit the golf carts.

It could be another place to go with the grandkids. You certainly don't want my grandkids on a golf course! But more like a Putt-Putt rather than those with dinosaurs windmills
