Executive Golf

The Villages Executive Golf trail consists of 36 nine hole courses unique to The Villages. These courses are primarily par 3 holes with the occasional par 4. Unlike many “executive courses” outside The Villages, ours are maintained at a high standard. Each course has something to offer to all levels of golfers. With 3 sets of tees from 2 to 7 tee boxes, they will challenge even the most experienced golfer, but from the forward tees will provide a friendly experience for the recreational golfer as well as the beginning golfer.

Greens fees on the executive courses are free to all residents*; a trail fee does apply if you wish to use your golf car on the trails of the executive courses. Trail fees can be paid per round, semi-annually, or annually. To purchase a semi-annual or annual trail fee, please download the following application and visit any of the regional recreation centers or follow the mail in instructions. Trail fees apply to the individual not the golf car. If you wish to bring a “guest” please be aware of all the policies regarding guest play.
