SummerGlen Overview

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.

SummerGlen Amenities

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 an outdoor pool and spa, for water aerobics and swimming, or just relaxing.

The adjacent Grand Hall hosts bigger community gatherings, parties, dances, and special events. The covered 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. SummerGlen Grill 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.

    We moved here just six weeks ago and have found this to be the friendliest community we have ever lived in. Everyone gets out & walks, bikes, or ride in their golf carts but respect your privacy as you get a friendly wave as they go by.

    My wife and I looked for a comfortable and friendly community in our initial search in 2014. After viewing over 40+ communities and as many visits we found SummerGlen in a 55+ Community search.
    We loved it the minute we drove in and have only enjoyed it more since buying in March, 2015. There are so many activities to engage active adults. The RV lot is a prime bonus if that is one of your enjoyments in retirement.
    We highly recommend you take a look and see for yourself.

    We love it here. We are not retired but wanted to live in Florida in a 55+ community. Summerglen is the perfect fit. Not too huge and crazy and not too small. The amenities are terriffic. The fact that I don't have to mow my lawn is a huge plus!

    We are so close to great biking trails and it is only a quick trip to Ocala or down to The Villages. I can't think of anywhere else where a trip to Walmart takes you thru ranches and fields filled with cattle and horses. It is just absolutely beautiful here.

    It is great to be close to all shopping but not in the craziness of traffic!

    We are extremely happy we purchased a home in Summerglen.

    You will not find a friendly and more activity community. We looked for 4 years and found this hidden 'gem'. We are close to everything but in a country-setting. Every day brings a new venture. So many clubs and activities. My calendar is always filled. However, you can relax and sit at the pool all day and night, Great restaurant on site and a 18 hole golf course at your pleasure. Smaller community with only 1024 homes but big enough to have lots of people to have many clubs and activities. Own softball diamond, tennis courts, pickleball courts, basketball court, and even plots of land for your own garden. On site entertainment provided by many of the clubs at SummerGlen. GREAT FUN!

    I have always been frugal and smart with my money. SummerGlen is a great community with nice homes and nice amenities at even nicer prices. You probably won't be able to find a nice, gated community around Ocala with so many amenities where you can get a great home for well under $200k. I looked, a lot!

    I am a SummerGlen resident. I love the golfing and softball activities we have here at Summerglen. My wife and I are very happy we chose to live here. It is a great place to live the retirement life.
