Active adults can experience the best of South Texas when they reside in Alamo Country Club, a gated 55+ community in Alamo. Located just north of the Mexican border and only a one-hour drive from the pristine beaches of South Padre Island, this active adult community offers an abundance of recreation opportunities all around.
Started in 1981 and completed in 2001, Alamo Country Club contains 526 single-family, low-maintenance homes. Each home was designed with active adults in mind, featuring open floor plans, at least two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a single-car garage. Most homes are situated along the community’s beautiful nine-hole golf course or nature park, which is home to many birds and butterflies. A homeowners’ association fee covers golf, a secured entrance, and upkeep of the community’s grounds and amenities.
Amenities and Staying Active
Golfers of all levels delight in the strategically designed golf course, chipping range, driving range, and pro shop. However, active adults don’t have to be golf enthusiasts to enjoy living in this age-restricted community. With two tennis courts, seven shuffleboard courts, horseshoe pits, and a lovely pavilion, residents can stay physically and socially active however they like.
After a vigorous workout, active adults can relax at the outdoor pool and spa. When the Texas sun sets, homeowners can stroll the community’s network of walking trails, which wind along lakes, ponds, and parks.
Alamo Country Club offers clubs and amenities for many interests, making it easy for homeowners to connect with like-minded neighbors and form lasting friendships. A clubhouse sits at the heart of the community, helping unite residents in a fun and relaxing environment. Here, homeowners can stick to their workout plan at the exercise room, meet with friends in the card room or billiards room, spend a peaceful afternoon reading in the library, or host a special soiree in the catering kitchen.
Clubs and Groups
Active adults who are always up for an exciting game can join in a round of bingo, canasta, cribbage, dominoes, mahjongg, or pinochle. Residents can join a Bible study group or connect with neighbors at the garden club or sunshine committee. Those who want to flex their creative muscles can join the quilters, art, or drama club. Homeowners can also participate in the community’s dance club or take a yoga class. With many warm, sunny days, residents can even enjoy water volleyball in the outdoor pool.
Outside the Community
Adventure beckons throughout the entire Rio Grande Valley. Residents can revel in the region’s colorful culture, whether they spend the day in a tourist-friendly Mexican town or shop in nearby McAllen or Harlingen. Birdwatchers and outdoor enthusiasts will especially love being so close to the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, a 2,080-acre natural preserve along the banks of the Rio Grande. Here, visitors can observe a variety of interesting birds, butterflies, mammals, and plants. Science and history buffs will appreciate the International Museum of Art and Science, which hosts intriguing cultural events, educational programs, and exhibitions. Residents will also be pleased to be near excellent hospitals in McAllen, Mission, Edinburg, and Harlingen.
