SummerGlen by Florida Leisure Communities is a gated, active adult community in Ocala, Florida. This affordable golf course community, where country charm meets city convenience, is just one Interstate exit away from in-town Ocala. What makes SummerGlen different from other Florida golf retirement communities is that it provides an uncrowded and relaxed golfing experience.
The Town Center at SummerGlen includes a golf clubhouse, Residents' Club and Grand Hall. SummerGlen prides itself on being a more intimate community, and much socializing takes place in all three areas. Not only is the SummerGlen Town Center open for residents to enjoy a wide array of activities and events, but they can also bring guests.
The SummerGlen Residents' Club sets the stage for active fun, fitness, and friendship. It features a library, billiards, and multiple rooms for pottery, arts and crafts, sewing, and card games. A fully equipped fitness and aerobics center are perfectly complimented by a beach-entry pool and spa, for water aerobics and swimming - or just relaxing. A therapeutic whirlpool is just the right finishing touch for water activities at SummerGlen Ocala. The adjacent Grand Hall hosts bigger community gatherings, parties, dances, and special events.
The shady veranda and sunny pool deck offer lots of room to relax with friends and neighbors. There is also an on-site restaurant located in the Golf Club. Morenos offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. SummerGlen residents can enjoy dining inside, outside in the screened, covered lanai, or opt for carry-out.
Winding through the community is the SummerGlen Golf Club. This 18-hole course boasts well-manicured greens and open fairways dotted by towering oak trees. It presents an exciting challenge for golfers of all skill levels.
