HAVANA - Pro's Corner

New Check-In Process

Good day from the team here at Havana. In an effort to support the CDC recommendations we have modified our operations. Currently golf shop access to the public is suspended, however we have staff available to assist you by phone. When calling the golf shop at 352-750-8085 our team can assist you with tee times the day of play, limited retail purchases that would include golf balls, tees, towels, umbrellas, hats, range finders to name a few. Additionally the team can assist you with administrative things like Rain Checks, RA Tags, GHIN renewals and Golf Shop Credit purchases that are valid for Championship Golf only. Acceptable forms of payment for the foreseeable future are credit cards or golf shop credit only. We will also do our best to answer any general questions you may have.

As we proceed through this golf journey together there are a few modifications that have been made to the check in process here at Havana. The first change is we have gone to an 18-hole operation. Therefore the rotations available will fluctuate as we open and close the nines due to amount of play and maintenance practices. Below are a few bullet points to help you with the check in process.

1. When you arrive at Havana to play golf proceed to the main parking lot our staff will stage you for your tee time.

2. Once all players have been staged and you are close to your starting time our starter will send your group from the parking lot to the Kenya starter building where you will check-in for golf and process payment. Golf Shop Credit provides the easiest check in experience.

3. Once all players for the designated time have checked in you will proceed to the first tee of the rotation that is to be played that day. If it is Kenya you will proceed up the path to the tee. If it is Hemingway you will proceed back across O’Dell following the moto path to the tunnel under Morse and take a left. If it is Kilimanjaro you will head to the tunnel with the exception of taking a right on the moto path once you have crossed under Morse Boulevard.

When you complete your round you will be given the opportunity to record scores etc. Upon completing this we ask that you not gather on golf course property to include the parking lot. Unfortunately during this time we would ask that you assemble at another location to practice any and all social distancing. You will be asked to disperse if you are on property and not scheduled for golf.

As we work through this we need your support to keep Golf alive here in The Villages as we hope to gain your support and understanding.

Warmest Regards,
