How about compensating the golfers for course closures?

El Diablo Golf Course seventh hole flooded

To the Editor: As a gesture of good will, wouldn’t it be nice if The Villages would compensate us in some manner for the closure of the golf courses. They could extend priority memberships for the period of time that the courses were closed, offer a discount of the renewal fee for priority memberships or […]

AM-640 WVLG promoted open houses during Hurricane Irma

A window was boarded up at AM-640 WVLG at Lake Sumter Landing. The board was placed on the inside of the window.

To the Editor: I believe someone in Janet Tutt’s kingdom, or perhaps she herself, needs to do a thorough drive by of all the “Common Areas.” The recreation centers, mailbox pools, outside the villas, the multi-modal paths, and of course the streets and thoroughfares. The landscape of The Villages is very lovely, one of the […]
