The Ocala National Golf Club


In a previous incarnation, this place was called the Golden Hills Golf Club because it was located in the Golden Hills community. It's been sold a couple of times and was not cared for properly and the golf course became very run down. New owners, however, have changed the name and worked on the course and it's now back to its older and better self. It's a difficult course, however. If you play it, bring lots of golf balls!

Well, it certainly is trim and tidy now! Tried golf a few times at a much younger age, Lowell, but it didn't take.

Fine looking club house. Think you have a hole in one with this shot. May that continue on the course.

It's a beautiful club house. If you run out of balls you can always sit with a cocktail instead.

Looks nice but sounds like it might be a a difficult one to play.

It is a grandiose building to be sure. Why is it a difficult course. Can you tell I am not a golfer? MB

I'm glad that this course has been restored. It would have been a shame to lose it.

This is a wonderful club house, I think it looks even better that it is, because photographed by a good photographer.

The first word that came to my mind was "genteel" and I've never used that word before. Such a lovely clubhouse. I hope you're having fun (!) at your new playground!

I doubt I could carry enough golf balls to play there.
