SSHA CLUBHOUSE CALENDAR
The SSHA Clubhouse can be rented by SSHA members and the general public as long as rental guidelines are followed. SSHA members receive a discounted rental rate.
The Clubhouse Calendar shows 3 types of color-coded events:
GREEN - confirmed Clubhouse Rental reservations
PINK - scheduled SSHA events, board meetings, etc.
BLUE - holidays
We are currently following the latest orders from Governor DeSantis regarding COVID-19 safety guidelines -- those guidelines require 50% capacity at our Clubhouse events -- or max. 45 people. Social distancing is still required and masks are strongly encouraged.
Please check the calendar to see if your desired event date is open on the calendar below. Then review all the rental information below the calendar.
Clubhouse Rental Information
The Clubhouse interior is approximately 2,000 square feet. It is air-conditioned, has multiple ceiling fans, and has a large kitchen and two bathrooms. Two large patio doors face the lake and with the vertical blinds open, they let in lots of natural light -- nice for daytime events. Access to the nearby gazebo with picnic tables is included, as well as access to the children's playground just steps away. With plenty of on-street parking and lake views, the SSHA Clubhouse is an ideal place for your next small event.

Deposit is refundable if Clubhouse Rental Rules and Guidelines are followed satisfactorily, and the Clean-Up Checklist is followed satisfactorily. When you sign the rental contract, you are confirming you have read and agree to all rules and deposit procedures, and will complete the Clubhouse cleaning checklist. Rental event time window is between 8:30 am to 11 pm. ALL EVENTS MUST CONCLUDE AT 11 pm, including music. Please be considerate to neighbors who live nearby. You may stay after 11 pm to clean up, but you must do so quietly and must vacate the premises by 12:00 midnight.
Inside the Clubhouse, the rental fee includes use of kitchen, appliances and coffee pot (but not dishes or utensils). Also included are cleaning supplies, trash bags, toilet paper and towels, free wi-fi, eight 8-foot rectangular tables, three 4-foot rectangular tables, 70 padded chairs and chair cart, and a utility cart to bring supplies in/out to your vehicle for the event. More details are contained in the Rental Packet PDF.
Outside the clubhouse, the rental fee allows you and your guests access to the gazebo and children's playground. The tennis and basketball courts are NOT included, nor are the boat dock and boat ramp unless the renter is a paid member of the SSHA Boat Club. You and your guests will be allowed access to the property and Clubhouse via the coded walk-in gate, but NOT the drive-in gate.
During your Clubhouse rental, you and your guests may only park outside the fenced area in designated parking areas. There is no parking or unloading allowed inside the fence, even if the gate happens to be open! You may unload any supplies for your event from your vehicle using our utility cart (stored inside the Clubhouse) to help bring in supplies if needed. The same cart can be used to bring supplies to your vehicle after the event.
Pull-in parking is allowed on the Clubhouse side of the street between our driveway and the tennis and basketball courts. Parallel parking is allowed on the street in front of neighbors' homes, but please be courteous and park only on the pavement and not on lawns, and do not block any private driveways, mailboxes (daytime events), or fire hydrants. Double-parking anywhere is not allowed. Most importantly, DO NOT block our driveway outside the drive-in gate in case of fire or other emergency.
If the drive-in gate happens to be opened by a SSHA member before, during or after your event and you or your guests drive inside the gate, your vehicle(s) may be locked inside if not removed before the gate is closed/locked. The Clubhouse Manager does not have a key to let out cars that get locked inside the gate.
