Because it isn't The Villages only, it is the game of golf and the age of most of us. YES there are dishonest thieves among us. But who on God's green earth would want a pitching wedge enough to not return it? I don't know anyone. I don't know anyone who wouldn't return it if it were found by them. Thank God.
I agree---just don't know anyone who wouldn't return a club if found by them. Once on the last day of a golf trip, I left an eight iron on the eighteen hole. The course mailed it to me at no charge from Myrtle Beach.

The first thing I do is put my name, address and phone # on a new club or clubs. A couple of times I found a "strange" club in my bag---my playing partners! Like I said---I found Golfers to be some of the very best people in this old world. OP, good luck and keep swinging.

What I said in my earlier post was that I was renting (a golf cart) i guess you read into that I was also renting a residence. However I was surprised you raised that as an issue.

As you asked, Where has all the honesty gone ????? Is this your post?


I could care less whether you rent or own a home here, but since you suggested I may have some things in my bag I didn't pay for, you may want to think before making inaccurate statements. Makes it hard to keep the stories straight.

I hope you get your club back.

Give the guy a break - he forgot a club - someone probably took it - it's a shame.

Exactly. Well said. A friend of mine works in one of the Villages pro shops and every so often they catch someone trying to steal things from the shop. So you know if people like that are around, a club left on the green is going to be fair game. That's not being negative, it is being realistic.
