Disney World, located here, sometimes has job openings for seniors with the benefits including reduced entrance fee (verify); great for grandchildren.  If your city isn't here, also see the Central Florida category.

18-hole Championship Golf at Ridgewood Lakes:

Florida golf at Ridgewood Lakes

Florida golf season is from October-May. The summer is not very busy because the snowbirds leave and only the regulars are playing. This time of year people generally play other Florida courses because the rates are cheaper. Communities are golf cart friendly but you cannot go shopping in your cart.  

The course is wide open in the summer, and getting a tee-time is no problem at all. The winter months are a bit busier, but the men’s and women’s leagues guarantee tee-times for all members.
