Default Ocala Country Club

Golfed at OCC last week.


Really nice condition.


Afternoon rate was really cheap.


At lunch, we talked to a couple of Villagers that gave up their priority golf in TV and joined OCC. I thought it was interesting........drive +60 minutes to play on one course, three times per week. They say they are enjoying it.

Interesting, thanks for the information. Just wondering, what was the PM rate and about how long did it take to get there? Do you have to go through what feels like about 100 traffic lights on 301, or is there a better way to get there?

My wife and I played Stonecrest the other day. We were able to get there via our golf cart by going through the gate in the Historic District. PM rate was $35, the course was not very busy, and it was a very interesting layout with some difficult holes. Unfortunately, the condition of the course was not very good compared to the Championship courses in the Villages. We were glad we gave it a try and it was an interest experience, but I doubt we will be going back.

Rates???.................Not sure. "They said", $500 per month, unlimited golf, no green fees.


I have not verified, I'm not sure about a buy-in cost.


There is a National Membership, which is defined at more than 15 miles away.




The club went thru nasty times and was sold. The new owners are keeping the place nice.



Routes???................this is a route up 75.

Not the rate to become a member, what did it cost you per person to play as a guest?

Oh, sorry.


Give them a call..............I can't tell you or I'd have to shoot you..................I know someone, who knows someone, who knows the Pro and he pretty much gave the tee times away for us.


There was another two-some at the bar when we were eating lunch. They had "a red card", so they rec'd a limited menu. I assume they were there with some kind of package deal.


Lunch was good.

This post is misleading. The Country Club of Ocala is a strictly private club. Believe this post is referring to Ocala Golf Club which is a far cry from CC of Ocala.

CHeck the papers. They have ads all the time. Last year I paid 45-50. Very nice layout. Never crowded during the week.

Wow! What member invited you to play at the CC of Ocala? Answer, no one did because that's not where you played. CC of Ocala is a members only private club. You must be a member or the guest of one to play there. They don't take outside tee times and certainly don't accept greens fees players. Do a little bit of research before you start telling others they are WRONG!

CC of Ocala now run by Hampton Golf. Played there last year with 20 golfers from the Villages as well as another couple. Call them to check tee times for non-members. Assume they still allow it this year.

Default The CC of Ocala

I played THE COUNTRY CLUB OF OCALA last week. Called them on a Tuesday and got a tee time on that Friday at 10:00 am. I asked for a “member for the day pass”, the rate was $59.00, which included cart, range balls, and a limited menu for lunch. Course was in fair shape, but is a great layout. Course was easy to get to, right up 301, on the south end of Ocala.

You really have that much of an issue in life?????


I played CCofO without a member.


Sorry you don't have the facts.


Have a nice day, somehow.
