Our Story

Our founder Frank Stronach envisioned a place where families could share experiences. Where time spent together was of the highest quality. A place that could be admired, not only for its masterful craftsmanship, but its respect for the natural surroundings.

Nestled on a beautiful parcel of emerald-green grassland in the Horse Capital of the World, the Adena Golf & Country Club quietly takes in everything Ocala, Florida has to offer.

Every detail, every aspect,
has been designed to let you experience health,
happiness and the ultimate joy that life has to offer.
