Default Starting To Wonder

It's coming up on 2 years since the first residents of Fenney moved in and there still isn't a championship golf course .Also there's only one restaurant and no commercial shopping. I know there will be a shopping area in the next year or so but no championship golf..no mention of a square in the near future.I don't know about you but I'm. starting to worry.

My only suggestion is to stop worrying.

The first championship course is being built south of 468 and east of the Turnpike and the square was mentioned months ago just won't say where exactly it will be located. You should read the newspaper more often,

Not to mention the new shopping plaza near the Everglades Rec Center.

Past performance and history can/should ease your need to worry!!

Dirt work and drainage work has begun for the Champ course, but it will be minimum 18 months before the first t-time.

Just seems they're more focused on building neighborhoods then amenities. This seems to be opposite of what they've done in the past. 18more months until there will be a championship course brings it to almost 4 years without that amenity down here. Another year or so before we see a grocery store brings that to 3 years .And who knows when a "square " will be done.

I know of one sale they lost, I met my new neighbors on Saturday. He's not a golfer, but saw there was a lack of shopping and thought the new homes were a little over priced for what they were offering and not near the squares or other amenties. He said his Villages Agent showed him plenty of new homes down there and they had just moved here from Hawaii so their budget could afford just about anything. He said he also heard about the death of a resident from West Nile Virus.

They chose a resale in The Village of Tamarind Grove off St. Charles and Buena Vista. It's a 2011 built masonry 3 BR CYV with everything done inside plus a birdcage saltwater pool on a corner lot, they paid $400K and now they're just a 20 minute cart ride from from LSL or Brownwood. They were very happy with their new home. This is their backyard.
