Sneaky way to increase price of golf in The Villages

To the Editor:

After checking published golf fees for last summer and this past winter (and prior years), I realized this summer’s fees did not include tax. All previous published fees did include tax.
So, when you go to pay your $36 fee to play, it’s $38.52! A bit of a sneaky way to increase the price! May not be much, but wish they would have actually announced the increase from last summer. Wonder if they will continue this practice!
