Could be the system had a glitch at that moment, will try again later...
Not a glitch, just tried and can't specify any course for Monday This is after 11 PM on Wednesday. They have to close the courses to comply with the 14 day self isolation for both the golfers and more importantly, the workers

You can't "reserve" a tee time for Monday today. Like I said, you can only reserve a tee time no longer than 3 days in advance. I just tried for Saturday and it worked.
Now if you want to make a "request" for Monday, you can do that. As of now the courses are not closing, and there is no order to shelter in place...yet

Actually not ONLY their problem because when all those that got hugged go all over The Villages it could become ALL OF OUR problems. If someone wants to kill themselves I'm OK with that but please don't kill me. Kinda like smoking. I don't care if someone else makes themselves sick smoking, just don't make me sick too.

Default No More Rakes or Flagsticks

Of course, under the fairly new rule, you don't have to remove the stick anyway.
All executive courses have removed rakes from bunkers and replaced flagsticks and cups. I don’t know if this has been done on the championship courses. I will find out today. I hope they don’t close the courses, but it is inevitable if there is a spike in positive cases in The Villages. I am playing a lot less golf than I have in the past. I played alone yesterday afternoon.

Agree with your logic. This is the reason the pools closed.

Yes. Use at your own risk! But lots of other public restrooms are open as well, not unique to golf
