My understanding is that the businesses on the squares plus our tax dollars pay for the entertainment.

You are correct.....non-residents are NOT allowed to play the executive golf courses, and if they want to play the championship courses, they must pay a higher non-resident greens fee.

No.
You must be a resident of The Villages in order to apply for Priority Membership.

Non Residents must pay a non-resident fee each and every time they play a championship course.

Merchants and hospitality tax, not exactly "our" tax dollars.

Championship golf courses need as many golfers they can get to help with the cost to maintain them. It's really that simple. When summer comes the lack of golfers is very evident, yet they still have to maintain the course. Same goes for the restaurants in The Villages.

Ah yes they leave but keep coming back. They cannot participate in any activities at any of the rec centers that is limited to residents only,other than playing golf on the 18 hole courses because they have to pay. So their complaint is thst yes their amenities are less than ours, and I very much doubt that, but they miss what we have. Yes they can eat at all thecrestaurants, shop atvall the stores and even enjoy the nightly entertainment at the squares. The nightly entertainment is not part if our amenities. Think about the over 2000 groups and clubs we have that they do not. Do you see they want their cake and eat it. Well it does not work that way. Let them stay where they are we will continue enjoying the lifestyle we have thattheybare envious of. You know what they say. You made your bed now lie in it.

And it is simply baffling why so many are so clueless about how the various amenities are truly funded.

Couple of points for you to consider: Non-residents pay a higher fee to play golf on our Championship courses; residents do not pay less or more to eat at our country club restaurants and neither do non-residents; resident amenity fees do not pay for restaurant maintenance nor cart path and golf course maintenance; our amenity fees are NOT HIGH considering everything that is offered to us as residents; people who are not happy here, should move out as there are no shackles on their ankles; stop listening to negative people and they will stop running their mouths. That’s all. Go in peace.

Oh, and her reason for still coming here; she doesn't have those amenities where she chose to buy, even though she champions the lack of amenity fees she pays.
We moved out of TV too but it wasn’t because anything TV we’re doing, we wanted to be closer to our children, grandchildren & great grandchildren. Is your friend NUTS! She plays on Championship courses all the time? If she plays 3 times a week that pays her amenities. No way I would pay what TV want to play golf on Championship courses. I played almost all Executive courses, but I’m sure some people would like to debate my argument. She could play outside TV cheaper, to me I think there’s more to it than what she’s telling you. Besides I thought you had to have a guest pass or be a resident to play on those courses? Something sounds a little fishy about what she’s doing. I played a lot of pool & I know for a fact that when someone moved outside TV the were RED FLAGGED & they couldn’t even sneak in because some tried.

Default So, with your thought pattern, should we also restrict access to town squares too?

If a non-villager wants to enjoy some of our amenities, the extra $$ that they have to pay should be a win for both sides of the argument. Keep in mind that any non-resident restrictions could create a hassle for our guests too. The continuous access of non-residents to our community can also help insure a perpetual increase in home values, as demand continues to grow for this exposure.
