The Villages is a Private Retirement Golf course that is always in very good condition. The greens are medium fast, the fairways always green and the traps are maintained well. If it were not for the Rocks in the traps I would give the course an excellent rating for conditions.

You have 5 choices for tees. They used to have colors, but since this is a retirement community and people are getting older and older they changed the colors to numbers and added a couple more tee boxes. This allows older guys to play closer without playing from the "red" tees. It was a good idea, as many have moved up as they should.

The course has plenty of sand traps, a few holes with lakes and lots of hard to read greens. If you get a chance to play there, you will enjoy it. They keep the rough fairly short as they don't want the members complaining. It works for me.

Pace of Play: Good

Course Layout: Good

Course Conditions: Good

Staff Friendliness: Excellent
