Down To Earth was awarded the contract for Orange Blossom Hills Country Club in October, 2013. It is the oldest of the championship courses in The Villages. As such, The Villages determined that Orange Blossom Hills needed renovation. Down To Earth was brought in to oversee the renovations that started in the Spring of 2014. The irrigation system was upgraded for greater water efficiency, renovation of all greens and bunkers, new tee boxes and leveling a few of the old tee boxes, and other projects such as tree and cart path work were completed. With Down To Earth’s synergies, The Villages was able to accomplish these renovations in a more efficient and cost effective manner.
Orange Blossom Hills Golf Course is the oldest 18 hole championship golf course in The Villages and plays at 6213 yards from the back tees. With older, majestic trees, quaint bridges and a few small, rolling hills, the Orange Blossom Hills course is paradise and history rolled into one. Golfers should not let the length of the course lull them to sleep as many holes demand accuracy off of the tee with a variety of clubs. The small greens put a premium on precise iron play and putting can be challenging due to the many subtle breaks on the greens.
