We’ve talked about a lot of holiday traditions recently in The Villages, like the lighting of the squares, the Christmas Parade, the model train show, the Christmas-themed classic car show, and more.
But one of the most-loved yearly traditions has to be Golf on Christmas Day.
Residents and their guests can enjoy a round of golf on any of the Championship courses for FREE on Christmas Day!
Of course this is available on a first-come first serve basis, but each year hundreds of Villagers show up to play.
Cart and club rentals are NOT available on Christmas Day (which doesn’t affect most people here anyway), and the practice ranges are closed too, but other than that, you’re good to try out those shiny new clubs you got from Santa. Merry Christmas!

But lets hope you don’t throw out your back playing golf on Christmas Day. Ever been to The Villages Regional Hospital ER and felt like you had to wait forever to see a doctor? Apparently you are not alone. According to a new report, hospital emergency room wait times in Florida average 16 minutes. Here in The Villages? It’s 58 minutes. More from Villages-News
One of my mom’s favorite songs was Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I’m partial to the ukulele version, and this week ukulele players from around The Villages took over Lake Sumter Landing and played a series of songs, including holiday classics such as “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Let It Snow”.
