Villages country club shut down after repeated health code violations 

Hacienda Hills Country Club

A country club in The Villages was shut down last week after repeated health code violations.

Hacienda Hills Country Club, at 1200 N. Morse Blvd., was shut down Friday after failing an inspection, according to a report on file with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.  

The inspector found two high-priority violations involving unclean surfaces and roaches.

A surface with food-contact had not been sanitized and utensils had not been properly cleaned. Twelve roaches were found in kitchen drawers on the cookline.
