There are a ton of people living in The Villages.
The Villages is a community that is more than 30,000 acres. More than 100,000 people live in The Villages. It is easily the largest retirement community in central Florida. The Villages is very unique, because it was specifically designed to cater to retired folks. There is a focus on making sure that there are plenty of social and recreational activities and easy access to all of the shops and stores. The Villages has more than 50 different golf courses. Many of them have been designed by famous golf course architects. I had a job at one of those golf courses last week. I work for a heat pump and AC repair business in The Villages. We offer same day and 24-hour emergency services. A customer in The Villages called me to fix the AC unit at the clubhouse in the golf course. This was my first time going to the golf course to help with a heat pump or AC repair. I received two free tickets to play golf at the course when I was done with the repair. I didn’t expect to receive the tickets, and I was very shocked and surprised. The value of the tickets was probably $200. I don’t play a lot of golf, but there were definitely a bunch of people at the AC repair business that were interested in taking the tickets off my hands. I told the guys that I was going to wait to see if my dad wanted them and if not I would put everyone’s name in a hat and give them away.
