The Villages - March 2022 - 37

After five years in theme-park
territory, the couple ventured to
The Villages.
" We came to see what it was like, "
Alan said. " We found our Disney for adults. "
In 2005, they settled in their first Villages home in
Virginia Trace.
" We'd been comfortable
in
Florida, enjoyed the
weather and all that, " Alan said. " We saw all the golf
here, and there was something for everyone. "
Alan took to the courses with gusto, while Marcia
spent time in front of the big screen, enjoying movies at
local theaters. Golf, she thought, just wasn't her game.
That is, until Alan gave her the gift of golf lessons.
Marcia wasn't
her husband.
thrilled, but she decided to humor
" I loved it immediately, " she
said, laughing. " I was hooked. I
started golfing with a group of about
24 women, and it was all about the bling. "
Sporting rhinestone bead counters and
golf skirts in stylish prints, Marcia explored the executive
courses and expanded her social circle through
post-game lunches and gatherings.
" We reserved tables at restaurants or had parties at
someone's house afterwards, " she said.
Alan was pleased to share the world of golf with his
wife, which led to their next adventure.
" We made a lot of really good friends in Virginia
Trace, but I had a friend who was a golf ambassador; I
told him I needed him to find us the best lot on Bonifay, "
Alan said. " And we got lucky. "
