In French, “The Villages” means “holy shit there’s a lot of golf.” Well, that didn’t make any sense at all, and either do the numbers at The Villages. Golf World contacted me about photographing golf there. It’s like telling someone to see all of Disney World in one day. It’s impossible.
It was great to team up with writer Leigh Montville. Especially since he’s a fellow Red Sox fan.
Montville wrote that there are currently 504 holes of golf. 10 Country clubs, seven with 27 holes, three with 18. 29 exucutive, nine hole courses. 2.5 million rounds played last year. 84 miles of fairway. 10,000 golfers per day. Montville and I sat down with Ken Creely, director of country-club operations.
I’ve never seen so many golf carts in my life. And, they’re all personalized. Fire trucks, corvettes, alumni colors, 18 wheelers, sound systems, blinkers, coolers, tassles, wooden interiors and other tricked out carts.
