Residents are cheering the renovation of the Silver Lake Executive Golf Course.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Thursday morning to celebrate the reopening of the original golf course in The Villages. The first golfers were scheduled to tee off at 1 p.m.
The renovation of the golf course located on the Historic Side of The Villages includes new greens, tees, fairways and re-grassing of the course. The course had been closed since April 1 for the renovation work.
The $329,234 renovation of the golf course was funded through the Amenity Authority Committee.
