Amenities at SCHALAMAR IS WONDERFUL! I can no longer golf (due to a left shoulder problem), but, can Shuffleboard, (love it) and/or enjoy the many Clubhouse offerings, of Tuesday evening,
Bingo, and various entertainment programs, that, continually get scheduled!! Meal offerings at the Caddie Shack can’t be beat! Why do we have homes for sale? Do believe there’s many out there, that just haven’t, yet, learned of this wonderful place called home!

I am up there for aerobics three times a week, line dance once a week, bingo once a week and many dances and shows that the activities and golfers but on.

My husband and I had been coming to Schalamar on vacation for many years and when the opportunity to purchase a home presented itself, we couldn’t have imagined choosing anywhere else. It’s the close knit sense of community which makes our place a home.
I love the drive in from the front gate – so beautiful & peaceful.
I love all the events at the clubhouse.
I love the social life in Schalamar. I tell people that we have a better social life at Schalamar than back home.

Often when you meet someone you don’t really know they will recognize you and say ” oh you are the walker” and you start a conversation.

Often asked by visitors who venture through the gates of our tropical paradise, “what was it that beckoned you to Schalamar?” Pondering that question, I must admit, there is no one definitive reason, yet interesting questions seem to pop into my mind. Was it the drive? Perhaps, it is picturesque, tranquil and downright down-home welcoming. Is it the golf? Maybe. After all it is challenging, yet not over powering, but then golf courses in central Florida are numerous. Looking beyond the fairways, tee boxes and greens, one can see so much more. Twenty five plus years in existence is what make Schalamar Golf so special. Rising out of the swamp lands, this course has endured. Each year more and more play, more stories, more moments, more friends, it is not just a golf course in central Florida, for many non residents, it is a yearly destination. Often heard, “whenever I visit central Florida, I return to Schalamar Creek golf, she beckons. Her majestic oaks, flowering magnolias, sweet gum trees and gently swaying palms suggest a tenderness, not often associated with golf. On a warm winter afternoon, hints of a red bud spring arrival just around the corner, squirrels foraging the forest floor and golf carts, ‘gators basking in the warmth of a strengthening, rising sun, suggests a way of life in this southern paradise. Yet in the midst of the steamy summer heat, hearty souls brave the relentless rays of this tropical sun and meet the challenges of Schalamar golf. And much like this golf course, they rise to the challenge and endure. Escaping
the heat, one might drive beneath the canopy, enjoy a cold beverage, gazing upwards, catch a glimpse of our resident bald eagles soaring majestically overhead. Yes, this is Schalamar golf. Golf not your choice of relaxation, no worries, Schalamar offers so much more. Tennis, pickleball, arts/crafts, swimming or just lounging, swimming, visiting with friends and neighbors, but then there are naysayers….you can get that anywhere in central Florida. To them I say, perhaps, but look beneath the surface, think and exist dimensionally. Breathe in Schalamar, close your eyes, let your senses reap all that this little piece of heaven offers. Have you heard the pileated woodpecker working deep within the natural forest preserve of Schalamar, or the quick sweet chirp of the blood red cardinal, calling its mate? Breathe in Schalamar, spring time brings orange blossom oblivion! This sweet, yet pungent smell, awakens every sense within, as does the honeysuckle, soon to bloom, reminding me of my childhood. A free and fanciful time, a time to explore, to learn, to ingest. With the coolness of the autumn season, the hearty year residents eagerly await the annual migration of the snowbirds. Sitting beneath gently swaying palms, perhaps sipping wine, reflecting on past months, we laugh, we cry, we give hope and we have comfort in knowing and understanding, Schalamar Creek, our home, not only awakens memories, it makes them.
I love the size of the ballroom for parties and be able to look out over the pools and walk on the balcony.
Inside the club house, they have made it very welcoming when you walk through the front door, with pictures of Schalamar & comfortable seating.
I have found the love of my life right here at Schalamar, it’s been great we knew each other when he lived here before and when both our mates passed away we got together again and we will soon celebrate 3 years of of being happily married..It’s one of the best places to meet people.

This morning at the breakfast table my wife, Sharon, asked me, “If we won the lottery would you stay here at Schalamar?” My immediate response was YES!! She then asked why? My answer was, Schalamar provides us with security, good friends and many options for activities. Having visited residents of other parks and hearing the issues they have encountered with their park owners and management, we at Schalamar are very fortunate to be owned by Northwestern Mutual and managed by Murex Properties. The improvements they have made since becoming our owner and managers have been outstanding. Their continued commitment to improving our community is way far and above that of many of these other communities. As residents we feel a sense of pride when we have visiting friends and relatives. We know if there ever was a serious need, due to poor health or any other issue, someone would be at our door step to provide a helping hand. Suffice to say, this is why we LOVE LIVING AT SCHALAMAR.
When my first husband passed away I was so blessed to be living in Schalamar because there was not a day that I felt all alone there was always somebody around. It was a great feeling.
