Golden Ocala Golf and Equestrian Club


Club Adena formerly known as Adena Golf & Country Club has recently reopened. The club was created by Frank Stronach who made his fortune in the automobile parts industry and founded the $35 billion automotive parts supplier Magna International, a Canadian behemoth. Stronach, diversified his wealth and became a breeder of thoroughbred horses, owner of multiple racetracks, such as Santa Anita in California and Gulfstream Park in Florida and owner of cattle and horse farms in Canada and Central Florida and Ocala. His love of thoroughbred horses is what brought him to Ocala and eventually his developement of Club Adena - a premium, members-only, full service club.  Shortly after it opened in 2015, the golf course was recognized by "Golf Digest" as one of the Best New Courses in America. But in the summer of 2018, the club abruptly closed because of a family disagreement that resulted in years of legal proceedings. The litagation has ended and now Club Adena is part of a high-end residential development featuring an exclusive private golf course that the SFGA will play.
The 18-hole golf course was built around limerock mining quarries that provide up to 80 feet of elevation change from tee to green on some holes. A feature of the property are waterfalls which feed into lake quarries of blue water and provide a dramatic backdrop on multiple holes. Moss draped live oaks provide tranquil scenery and line the well-groomed fairways and greens.  Be sure to bring your camera.
