Golden Ocala Provides Great Swimming in Ocala
As the swelling heat of late spring and early summer begins to arrive and as humidity levels creep up, we don’t suddenly develop an aversion to the feel of Earth’s changing atmosphere – especially here in the Sunshine State – and leap with unabashed liberty into the cooler, denser and more playful realm of dihydrogen oxide. No. No.
We decide to go swimming in Ocala for one reason: It’s fun. Well, we may be seeking escape from summer’s swelter for the tepid environment of Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club’s resort-style pool.
If you’re wound, here you unwind. If you’re tense, here you relax. If you’re tired, here you refresh. And all while enjoying the fountains and shady areas that overlook our picturesque golf course. This sprawling pool gives swimmers the lazy opportunity to lounge in the shallow area.
But with the arrival of summer – and big heat – some precautions must be taken to ensure swimmers, especially the little ones, remain safe and secure and have fun in the process.
