Played an Exec course yesterday with Bride, sis and bro inlaw.



We don't even putt at the hole, we throw out a yellow ball and putt at that.
It works.


The starter wanted to handle out ID's........I nicely said, Nope.
He understood.

We played Cane Garden yesterday. Easy check in with credit card swipe. No receipt or starter ticket given. Each of our foursome used own cart. While on first hole of Hibiscus a golf employee installed plastic piece in the cup to prevent ball from going in. Was kind a strange and a challenge to actually hit the thing. Part way through playing saw no piece in the cup on the 6th. Mentioned to the ambassador and he said some people were taking them out. A good way to get things cancelled for the rest of us if you cant play by the rules.

I can't see the problem.
99% of the people we play with, consider anything within 3 foot of the cup, a gimme.
Some can go a whole round without the ball ever entering the cup!

We played at Oakleigh. The rakes were removed from the bunkers. Practice putting green had the sticks, no holes. With everything going on we're better off pretending to hit the ball from tee off to hole. I'm actually now considering to stop golfing for awhile but I have no other amenities to use as it is.

I went to the Villages website Tee-Time system in order to schedule foursome golf play for Monday, But looks like they are stopping golf play. Was not able to see any available golf courses for that day....

Not the hardest of all sacrifices. We still have electricity, air conditioning, running water, flush toilets, gasoline, television, internet, ability to get food and supplies, etc. Imagine if this was a major hurricane. 14 days would seem like eternity. These 14 days at present only feel like being in time out when I was in Kindergarten.

Call them.....computer issue, keep checking back. Please don't make assumptions, easy enough to find out facts without stirring the pot any more than some do on here.

Are you trying to schedule a tee time or make a request?
You can only schedule 3 days in advance and request 5 days in advance. As of now the courses are remaining open.

I haven't heard a good idea yet. You are outside in the air, you are not on top of others. You are getting fresh air. How are you going to get the virus. If you are stupid enough to hug your buddy or congregate in groups at the end of the round, then that is your problem .
You go to the grocery store which is a lot more dangerous than a golf course. You don't have to handle anything that doesn't belong to you when playing golf. Yesterday, at one of the supermarkets, I ordered Mac and cheese. The girl who served it to me had no gloves on, then put her fingers inside the lid while spooning the contents into my carryout container. I cancelled the order after telling the manager what happened. All the other deli workers had on gloves. I didn't touch anything, not did anyone else touch anything when I signed up and played golf. I brought my own pen to sign my charge receipt. SOOOOOOO, we should close the golf courses?

I have to say something else about closing Courses. I just saw something that is changing the way I think. I passed Kenya golf course 10 min ago and there under the trees at the 9th hole were about 15 guys standing on top of each other BS about their game.
This kind of behavior is exactly what will cause the courses to close.

Read my post again: I said "looks like" does not mean "they did" stop..
So please keep calm and don't freak out on us for any little thing someone post on here, Have a safe day..

If they are there is no announcement of closing them on golf the villages. I need to pay my executive trail fees but I'm not forking out the money and end up possibly losing 4 to 6 months of using it. There are no refunds on trail fees. I hop it don't come to that.

I agree follow the rules or the golf courses will close. You just have to wonder why so many feel so entitled that rules don’t apply to them especially as we fight this deadly virus. Where does this come from? Most of us were not raised that way. Dog parks closed because some dog owners didn’t follow the Coronavirus rules.

Yes but if you put in a request today, Wednesday, you can only request from this coming Sunday to Wednesday. I didn't explain myself very well.

Thank you Steve for you reply...
This morning I was trying to make a schedule play for Monday.
Could be the system had a glitch at that moment, will try again later...
