Bill sez:
We'd definitely like to read whatever you have to say about the Ocala area & your experience with Del Webb, either on- or offline. We want to make our decision knowing as many facts & opinions, good and bad, as possible.

We're not golfers, so that's not a major concern of ours. But being around a bunch of unhappy golfers would be. We are planning to stay at, or at least visit, Lake Diamond & Ocala Palms next time down, as well as possibly Rainbow Springs, Oak Run, Citrus Hills & Carillon Lakes.

Those are all fine choices, though my main focus is on the golf course so my criteria won't be a match for yours. I think it would be wise to consider golfing issues as I believe that the value of the properties are closely tied to the success of the course. If the course winds up going under due to mis-management it will have an adverse effect on you
