Default Where is this section of golf cart path?

Okay, my wife and I came here for our lifestyle visit in August of 2020 and in February we bought a home here in Spanish Springs. On that lifestyle week though, we drove our golf cart up from Brownwood to Spanish Springs just to see everything available.

We came across a stretch of golf cart path (maybe 200 yards or so) that was completely covered by trees overhead, almost like a trellis. it seems like it was maybe somewhere between 466A and 466. Not sure if it was Morse or Buena Vista. When my wife and I saw this stretch we both said, "Oh my gosh this place is beautiful!" (meaning all of The Villages). It COULD be north of 466. Because it was our first visit we didn't know the area at all back then.

Yesterday was our 5th time out on a long trip where we also hoped to maybe stumble upon that area again-- with no luck. Does this beautiful stretch of golf cart path sound familiar to anyone? We would love to find it again!

That sounds like the golf cart path between Laurel Manor Rec Center and Saddlebrook Rec Center - north of 466 & east of Buena Vista, parallel with Buena Vista.

Perhaps the path next to the Saddlebrook executive nine, just off Buena Vista.

It could be Buena Vista Blvd in the Sumter Landing area, near Stillwater Trail that you are looking for.

A new record ! The first five responses agree. This is the spot for sure. It is a MMP north of 466 correct ?

That is our favorite path, we call it The Tunnel of Love. We go through there often, every time we go to we go to Brownwood from up near Route 42.

If that is not the one then they definietly need to check it out also.
I think it is the one of the most unique and picturesque in TV

Yes, the path that runs parallel with the first and second holes of Saddlebrook.

We call it “Tunnel of Trees” right along Burns Vista as mentioned above. It is one of our favorite places on the golf cart paths.
