Points and Cancellations

Tee times are in high demand in The Villages, especially during the winter months. Therefore it is necessary to set up guidelines that will provide all residents a fair and equal opportunity to obtain tee times. In order to encourage folks to 'play by the rules' it has become necessary to assign cancellation points in certain situations, which are added to the resident's play history. A good example of this would be a resident requesting and securing a tee time and then not showing up to play, letting the tee time go unused. This is not fair to the rest of the residents, and requires the assignment of cancellation points to discourage such behavior. Golfers who have been assigned a reservation through the reservation system will be assessed one (1) standard point, as is the current procedure . The reservation and the cancellation times will determine the number of cancellation points that will be added to your play history. Cancellation points are assigned to ALL 'reserved' tee times as follows:

  • One (1) point for cancelling a tee time prior to the day of play. This point is assigned regardless if the time was acquired via the request or reservation portions of the tee time system. As an example, if someone were to cancel prior to the day of play, they would receive 2 total points (1 Play point and 1 Cancellation point).
  • Two (2) Points for cancelling on the day of play. Note: These cancellation points are in addition to the play point received when obtaining the tee time. As an example, if someone were to cancel on the day of play, they would receive 3 total points (1 Play point and 2 Cancellation points).
  • Reservation Point: The number of reservations a resident has received over the last seven (7) days. This seven-day total includes any bonus or cancellation points and becomes the resident's Reservation History. Reservation Points are awarded to all tee times on the championship courses until 2:00 PM and the executive courses until 90 Minutes before dusk.
  • times that are made on the day of play at the Championship courses will not have a reservation point assigned.  Call the respective championship for availability.
  • Guests are assigned the reservation history status of their resident host.

We realize legitimate situations will arise that will require the need to cancel, however the reason for cancelling does not alter the fact that an opportunity to play may have been taken away from other residents. This fact, coupled with the fact it is not practical to make a definitive determination between legitimate and non-legitimate reasons for the cancellations, requires the need to have cancellation points applied regardless of the circumstances.

Bonus Points

Bonus points are given as an incentive to encourage and reward residents for being flexible in their tee time request. Once you are awarded a tee time, for every hour away from your preferred tee time, you will be awarded one-tenth (.10) of a point and it will be deducted from your play point. For example, if your preferred time is 8:00, and you receive a 10:00 tee time, you will receive .2 bonus points and only receive .8 points for that tee time instead of a full point.

System Abuse

The Villages Tee Time System, as is the game of golf, is built around the integrity of the individual; it is the only game where players call penalties on themselves. Our tee time system is a fair and equitable system for assigning tee times to residents of The Villages. It does, to some extent, rely on each resident using the system in a fair and equitable manner. However, from time to time, we encounter activity that appears to be to the contrary. Some individuals attempt to circumvent the integrity of the system. Whether or not these actions are intentional, it is our responsibility to protect the privileges of all residents by appropriately dealing with the matter. If we encounter such activity associated with a resident's Villages ID#, the resident will be notified of our concern, and appropriate action taken (see the District's golf penalty policy at www.DistrictGov.com), up to and including the suspension of system use and golfing privileges. We, as well as our fellow residents, appreciate everyones fair play.

Multiple cancellations using ghost golfers

Ghost Golfer refers to a Villages ID# which is used to obtain tee times, but is subsequently cancelled, either always or a majority of the time. This type of 'system abuse' will cause the Villages ID# to be de-activated in the system for a period of time. Additionally, the individual making the request, and the golfer who replaces the ghost golfer, may also be subject to de-activation.

Property Points

To ensure equitable distribution of tee times, the concept of property points was created. Property points are essentially reservation points that are associated with each home in The Villages. They are only used when residency changes within a household. This most commonly occurs with people who rent homes or owners returning to their home after renting it out. Homeowners who are acquiring or re-acquiring residency, are assigned the property points associated with this property. This is essentially the last 7 days reservation history of the prior people who resided in the house. The concept was added to ensure each property has the same rights and opportunities to obtain tee times.

Inclement Weather Point Policy

During periods of inclement weather such as high volumes of rain, frost, abnormal cold or extreme wind Golf Management makes a decision whether or not to cancel play.  Fortunately we have very few days during the year when cancellation of play is necessary.  Although the weather patterns in Florida are unpredictable we have to make a decision that is fair and equitable as possible to course conditions, the golfers scheduled to play that day and the residents at large.  Usually the decision to cancel play is made by 7:00 A.M.  Cancellation decisions are communicated as soon as possible on our website GolfTheVillages.com., as well as on WVLG.    We are very sensitive to the fact that cancellation might affect a golfers play history. Following is our policy in regards to Cancellations Due to Inclement Weather:

  • No Point Times  - During periods the golf course is closed for play, no points will be assigned to golfers. This could be due to substantial rainfall, frost, or other extenuating circumstances.
  • Reservation Point Only Times - We realize there are different personal tolerances for cold, wind, rain, etc. When there are clear signs of severe inclement weather, although the golf course remains open for play, only reservation points will be assigned for golfers who wish to cancel.
