Situated on 500-acres of waterways and natural beauty, the neighborhood provides lakefront, golf course, and wooded homesites.

With streets lined with beautiful mature trees and pre-owned golf homes starting under $25,000, Schalamar Creek is a retirement community filled with friendly, down-to-earth people. As a leased lot neighborhood of less than a thousand units, the community's residents own their home, but not the land that it sits on, and instead pay a monthly rent for the land, which allows them to use all the amenities of the community.
Golf homes and condos are available with two to four bedrooms and one or two-bathroom floorplans. Schalamar Creek golf properties also have one and two-car garages and there's additional mobile home storage available. When residents step out their door, they're sure to be greeted with the smiles and waves of people riding bikes, walking their dogs, or out for a drive in the golf cart. With an active homeowner's association that hosts dances, and many other events residents enjoy attending, it's not just a home, it really is a lifestyle.
Of course, many of Shalamar Creek Golf and Country Club's residents feel that the best reason to consider choosing a retirement golf home at the Schalamar Creek is one of the area's finest golf courses. The professionally designed 18- hole championship course boasts 6,301-yards of play that can challenge even the most experienced golfer, as well as introduce someone new to the game. Tournaments are held year-round for men, women, couples, and charity events.
Schalamar Creek's clubhouse restaurant, The Caddy Shack offers a full-service bar and grill with daily happy hours specials, breakfast and lunch daily, plus dinner specials Monday through Saturday in air-conditioned surroundings.
