As far as golf, the demand is still there. We got zipped on a teetime request for this Friday. A threesome for championship between 11:56 and 0115 on 8 courses submitted Saturday and we got nothing. We could jump on times for Hacienda Hills or Orange Blossom, but in the afternoon coming back, it's a long drive from the southside after playing 18. It's 45 minutes cart ride just to SS square, I have yet to play HH, I have played Tierra Del Sol a couple of times, and honestly, I much rather play the local area than drive that far for that course, Cane Garden and Bonifay are two of my favorites, if I could only get on them. Saturday & Sunday times aren't as bad, it seems everybody wants to play Friday.

There are 2 between 466 and 42 and there is 1 below 44, that one is in McClure and has a 2 car garage and is $354K.
The one in Mallory is more a view of the toilet facilities than the golf course it has been on the market for a long time.
Belvedere is a good area fir shopping but a car ride rather than a golf cart ride to the squares.

Who want to bet lopez and glenview on the chopping block within 10 years? Developers don’t care about north 466 sold to CDD long ago. As long as CDD puppets let them build what they want nothing off table? IMO even the holly ground Palmers!

IF the demand changes, it will be after we are gone.

Yes, thanks. I guess the current crop of senior golfers in TV Land is safe from losing courses. I was thinking about the next generation of seniors who may like some different activities such as rock climbing. And from the example of pickleball having a court size of about 1/2 of a tennis court - perhaps there will be 1/2 sized golf courses in the future for seniors. Or smaller golf courses to have more holes and lower the tee time waits? Pickleball changed the face of activities in TV Land - so too some other sport or version of a current one could become popular here in the future. The future will SURELY change and mutate even for seniors.

By the time the next generation of seniors actually become seniors most will no longer be rock climbing. Getting old has a nasty way of changing ones sporting activities. I used to be an excellent mogul skier and basketball player, but now I swim and golf because that’s what my cranky knees can tolerate. And they are already downsizing the golfing opportunities to glorified miniature golf courses that they call putt and play.

Can you please provide names of the Championship courses. I can only find one and that is called Sawgrass which is going to be 18 holes.

So how can they make 28 holes more and where. Went through everything that has been published.

Do you mean 28 holes of extra executive style? Please advise source

Default Golf Course view under $500K

If you haven't done so already, download The Villages App which among other things, has an inventory of existing homes for sale by the Villages Sales team. I just used the app and found 12 homes for sales with golf fronts for under $500K.

Hacienda Hills has been discussed ad nauseum. What would you do if you owned the property and three restaurant businesses failed and you offered the building to the folks in charge for a reasonable amount and they didn't want it. That area has quite an older population and do not go out to eat as much as younger people. I don't think having apartments is a bad thing and I have said it many times. There are less than ten homes that abut it directly and property here everywhere just becomes more expensive.

One of the publications put out by The Villages shows two 18-hole courses being planned just south of Monarch Grove but it did not give their names.
