Many residents in The Villages fill their days with golf.

Palmer Legends Country Club, Sarasota Golf Practice Center, Glenview Champions Country Club and Nancy Lopez Legacy Country Club all have driving ranges available to residents and their guests.

All driving-range locations have ball machine tokens available for purchase in-store until closing. They also offer a prepaid program to save golfers money and the hassle of buying tokens every time they want to practice.
