The Arnold Palmer Legends Country Club

The golfing great, Arnold Palmer, has numerous golf courses around the world, many of which he designed and built.  There are several Arnold Palmer golf courses in Florida.

These photos are of the Arnold Palmer Legends Country Club in the Lake Sumter Landing area of The Villages, Florida.  

The Villages advertises that people who buy a home in The Villages can play golf "free" for the rest of their lives.  Unfortunately, there's a catch.  That refers only to the numerous "Par 3" golf courses dotted around The Villages.  And if you're lucky enough to get a tee time at one of these courses and drive your own golf cart, you will have to pay a "trail fee."

To play at Palmer's Legend course, or any other of the major layouts, such as the Nancy Lopez course, you must have a membership, which is an added cost.   There are a number of hoops to jump through in order to get a tee time, also.  

All of this is why a number of folks from The Villages come to Ocala or other cities in central Florida to get in their games of golf.

Teslas in Lake Sumter Landing

From what I've read and seen, the Tesla is a new and wonderful electric machine unsurpassed in beauty and performance.  They are very expensive, however, thus we don't see a lot of them on our city streets.  We came across these two the other day in Lake Sumter Landing.

Cammisha is a beautiful young lady working at TooJay's Deli in Lake Sumter Landing in The Villages. We met her on Christmas Day when we stopped in for a bite to eat. She made our dining experience a real pleasure. Thanks, Cammisha! And Merry Christmas!

Sightseeing Boat at Lake Sumter Landing

Please note that as of today, this blog - The Villages (Florida) Photos) - is inactive. We have posted pictures to this blog for several years and believe we have provided a fair understanding of what The Villages is all about.

We visit The Villages on occasion and will, naturally, take photographs.  These photographs, however, will be posted on our Ocala & Central Florida Photos blog.

Our sincere thanks to who have taken the time to stop by and comment on our photos of The Villages.

Golf Car Garage

Not long ago, we posted a photo of the new golf car sales center and gas station in Lake Sumter Landing.  This golf car garage is part of the complex.  Golf cars, just like regular cars, will need repairs and servicing at times.

Now you can buy a golf car, gas it up and get it fixed all in the same place.

Ricciardi's is an Italian restaurant in the Brownwood hometown. We have not patronized the place, but plan to do so in the near future.
