Amenity Fee Adjustment - Updated 6/13/2022

Per your individual Declaration of Restrictions, amenity fees are subject to an adjustment based on the fluctuation of the National Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers. The timing of this adjustment can vary based on the Declaration of Restrictions in your unit. For information specific to your home, please refer to your Declaration of Restrictions. For assistance in obtaining them, please contact Community Standards at 352-751-3912.

Each month, the percentage of adjustment will be provided in What’s Happening for your reference. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Finance Utility Billing at 352-750-0000.

The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers changed by 8.582% from May 2021 to May 2022. This change will be used to adjust Amenity Fees for properties with original land sale dates in the month of July.


Information Provided by Executive Golf

The United States Golf Association recently implemented a new rule under Rule 13.2a (2): 

•There is no longer a penalty if a ball played from the putting green hits a flagstick left in the hole. 

•Players are not required to putt with the flagstick in the hole; rather, they continue to have the choice to have it removed (which includes having someone attend the flagstick and remove it after the ball is played).

Information obtained from www.usga.org

Removing the flagstick to help in retrieving a golf ball from the cup is still considered proper etiquette and requires that we complete the task by hand. Using the flagstick to pinch and pull up the golf ball from the cup is frowned upon and not considered good etiquette standards.

The challenge for Executive Golf Courses in The Villages is that many residents use assistance or ball removal devices for the convenience of not bending as far to remove golf balls from cups. When ball retrieval devices are inserted with flagsticks still in place (Photo 2) the damage to the delicate edges of cups occur.  It also causes degradation of the putting surface for the players that follow.  

We are asking all residents that use these devices to simply pull the flag stick out gently (Photo 1) and remove the golf ball with your device. This will ensure the integrity of the cup edges and allow players to enjoy the same crisp quality of the cups as the players before them. 

We appreciate your cooperation!



Pet Owners

Please be considerate of others and all properties.  Dog owners are responsible for picking up after their pets.  Please take all waste home for disposal.  Do not use storm drains, postal or recreation facilities for disposing of solid waste or plastic bags.  In addition, please follow all county ordinances including all dogs are required to be on a leash.
