Anybody can eat at developer's restaurant’s and play the developers restaurant and champion courses.

Non residents and guest pay a higher rate to play the Championship courses. On top of the fees they pay guest fees and high cart rental fees. When you meet them, smile because they are helping to keep your rates lower thank outside The Villages

Her very presence as a “Non-Resident” paying guest fees is a testament to our community’s amenities. We need the revenue of outsiders to keep our private businesses thriving.

Restricting the Country Clubs and golf courses to residents only is not a good business decision and may result on higher fees for us residents. Also, for the most part, non-resident folks and visitors are friendly, positive and 99% of those non-residents I met wish or plan to move in The Villages. Please do not let a handful of unhappy people and few negative remarks change the way things are...
Thank you. -myk

The price to pay Championship golf is very high if you are not a priority member. I think the courses use profits to maintain. If you restrict her you also restrict your visitors from playing and eating in the country clubs. I do not want that.

The thing is they do have the right to champion courses. As far as the restaurants and stores. We welcome the revenue

A somewhat related question, who pays for the entertainment at the squares?

Default Gate crashers

A Stonecrest Realtor told me that use of the Villages Golf Cart Trails was easy. She said just get a friend who lives in THE VILLAGES to get an extra gate pass for you to use.

If she is willing to eat at country clubs and pay for championship courses thats fine...6 to 9 months a year they need the business.

Gee whiz!! Really? If that same person lives in Lake County and drives to Sumter to play golf, should she be restricted from driving on Sumter County roads because she does not pay taxes in Sumter County?

Don’t kid yourselves about those of us outside the bubble not paying for things in your adult playground. Most of the municipalities where TV does business have been stacked with their hand-picked candidates for the various governing boards. This has resulted in the old cliche, “What the Villages wants, the Villages gets” and the taxpayer foots the bill.

If non-Villagers weren’t allowed to enjoy the entertainment on the squares, eat at the mostly mediocre restaurants, country clubs, or shop at the stores, I bet half the businesses would go under.

If I were a member of the Morse family dynasty that runs this place, I’d be more concerned about the future of golf itself. There are many reports out there about how it’s popularity has nosedived.

As TV aggressively expands into Leesburg, it’ll be very interesting to see what this community will look like in 10-15 years.
