Interior gutted at Orange Blossom Country Club, future uncertain

Interior demolition work at the Orange Blossom Gardens Country Club continues, but still no word on who might be moving into the space.

MICO Customs Inc. of Wildwood filed the permit for demolition work on Nov. 25.

Crews have stripped the interior of the building.

No construction permit has been filed with the Town of Lady Lake.

The building is owned by the Villages Operating Company.

Orange Blossoms Gardens Country Club, built in the mid-1980s, is a Villages original. Many Villagers have fond memories of seeing Mr. Schwartz golfing at Orange Blossom Hill Golf Course, the oldest 18-hole championship golf course in The Villages.
