HAVANA - Pro's Corner

Good day from the team here at Havana Country Club. As we continue through the summer season we are currently working diligently to make the course healthy and sustainable. This past winter created a few challenges however we have embraced those challenges and applied innovation & creativity, stewardship, and hard work to meet those challenges and we are making positive gains on the health of our course which will allow for long term enjoyment.

We have now gone back to the 2 cart rule at all of the Championship clubs. There was some confusion regarding the interpretation of the information that is in the Good Golf Guide so I want to take a moment to clarify. We are asking that if you are comfortable riding with a fellow player we would appreciate it. If you are not we are still allowing multiple golf cars. Two cars may utilize the fairway at one time, one can be in the rough and one will need to remain on the path.

In addition to the 2 cart rule I also wanted to provide a reminder regarding our CAP program that allows players with a DMV approved permit to utilize accommodations around greens when there are not Cart Path Only restrictions. When playing please have your cap tag displayed on the front pillar of the roof support of the golf car so that it can be easily identified. As you play your round you are expected to keep your golf car not less than 30 Feet or ten paces from the green surface. Your assistance and adherence to this special accommodation is expected and appreciated.

Finally as we proceed through this golf journey together we are hopeful for your assistance in filling your divots, repairing your ball marks on greens and raking bunkers so that as a community we can make the golfing experience the best it can for everyone that plays golf here The Villages.

Warmest Regards,
