It's a big week in The Villages as far as new amenities are concerned, with the Grand Openings of both the Loblolly Executive Golf Course, as well as the Willow Tree Recreation Area being held on the same day.
Loblolly is the companion course to Longleaf which opened last month to rave reviews.
Willow Tree features an adult swimming pool, cornhole, bocce and shuffleboard courts, and a picnic pavilion.

In addition to impersonating Trump, he also does impersonations of Presidents Reagan and Bush, as well as a bunch of other famous people. You can learn more and get tickets here.
