I still have to believe it is a maintenance issue. Seems most courses between 466 and 466A have very poor greens. The Volusia/Escambia etc courses are in nice shape and many of the courses north of 466 are in nice shape. In the past few weeks, I have played Oakleigh, walnut Grove, Chula Vista, DelaVista..all with very nice greens. So, you can’t really blame the weather or amount of play. The only other variable is who is doing the care and maintenance.

Now that's a ridiculous statement for a serious problem.

It cracks me up that all these casual golfers are such experts on golf course maintenance. Deal with the conditions now and we'll see you next year.

That’s because it’s not what many of us would call a serious problem.

Having said all of that, the timing of events is pretty ironic for the director of executive golf to be leaving. I just don’t think they have enough executive courses for the amount of people in The Villages. Would others agree with this statement?
I believe there are many, many more villagers that either started playing golf when they moved here, or always did than the developer anticipated for future buildouts. Just throwing it out there.

Most? This cracks me up also. That again is pulling at straws.
