Meet Charlie Manypenny, Copeland Oaks’ “Best Golfer”

This month, meet Charlie Manypenny, who has been a villa resident of Copeland Oaks community since 2014.

Charlie is a retired computer scientist and programmer who is great at taking apart and putting together nearly anything. His friends and family call him Mr. Fix-It.

Since moving to Copeland Oaks, Charlie quickly became recognized for another passion – golf! During his first season with the Copeland Oaks Golf League, he walked off with the trophy for all-around best golfer.

Charlie always sports a winning smile and twinkle in his eye. In fact, he’s still hoping for his first hole-in-one…and he’s pretty sure it’s only a matter of time!

His wife Cynthia says that for Charlie, “Golf is a lifestyle, not a hobby.”

In fact, the lifetime golf club membership at the Sebring Country Club, the on-campus putting green, and the virtual driving range were all factors in Charlie and Cynthia choosing Copeland Oaks.

There are plenty of other activities that keep Charlie and the others engaged. He also competes in the Copeland Bowling League and is a regular at the Wednesday morning men’s meeting when the guys gather together for coffee and conversation.

Because of all these fun, relaxing and stimulating things, Charlie has four perfect words to describe life at Copeland Oaks: “I love this place.”
