Breast cancer awareness is synonymous with the color pink, symbolizing hope, strength and remembrance.

These attributes are the driving force behind the GoPink! fundraiser in Martin County. Founded over 20 years ago by members of the Harbour Ridge Yacht and Country Club, the event honors breast cancer survivors and those who have passed away from the disease.

The annual GoPink! golf event and auction took place from February 6th-8th and raised more than $92,000 to benefit the Cleveland Clinic Breast Health Navigator Program in Martin County. The philanthropically funded service provides information, resources and assistance to more than 200 breast cancer patients each year.

The Breast Health Navigator Program supports the mission of the Robert and Carol Weissman Cancer Center at Cleveland Clinic Martin Health, specifically for breast cancer research and care. The program is an integral part of the personalized care patients receive at the Weissman Cancer Center at Martin Health, providing guidance and counseling to women planning their future care. It also provides no-cost mammograms and related services to women who do not have health insurance.

Several new community events were added to GoPink! this year, including a pickleball tournament, a “Best in Pink” tennis attire contest, and a “Pink Your Pooch” dog kerchief event at the Dog Park. More than 250 golfers took to the greens for the charity golf tournament, which featured a luncheon, cocktail party, and silent and live auctions.

Why I Support GoPink!

The GoPink! fundraiser has special meaning for many in the Harbour Ridge Yacht and Country Club community. Some of the event organizers shared their inspiration for supporting the fundraiser and raising awareness for breast cancer.

“I chair and support GoPink! because I feel everyone has been impacted by breast cancer. My husband’s sister lost her battle at 62 and I had an up-close experience of what it was like, as she lived with us through her last six months. My tribute to her is why I give back. I am hopeful that the funds we raise help women who are unable to afford mammograms and other treatments through the Breast Navigator fund at Cleveland Clinic Martin Health. Our community at Harbour Ridge gives in memory of Emily Crandall, and we hope this keeps her memory alive.” –Becca McCoy

“I lost my mother to breast cancer when I was 25 and she was only 58. I think all we can do is try to provide caring and dignified treatment while people fight their fight. That’s what we are doing for the people in this area.” – Beth Warner

“Supporting the GoPink! the campaign has a lot to do with personal reasons and experience. My mother died from cancer in 1993 and my sister—diagnosed with breast cancer over 30 years ago and then ovarian cancer 4 years ago—just recently passed away in October 2021. What I learned about GoPink! is how very personal it is to the people of Harbour Ridge. There is passion about what was the beginning of the event over 20 years ago, the history of the event and the purpose of the event. It’s really special.” –Val Lesniak

PALM CITY, FLORIDA – Harbour Ridge Yacht and Country Club has retained its designation as a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, an Audubon International program. Tim Cann, the Club’s Director of Greens and Grounds, led the effort to maintain sanctuary status on this course. Harbour Ridge Yacht and Country Club was designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary in 2000 and is one of over 900 courses in the world to currently be designated as such.

The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, endorsed by the United States Golf Association, provides information and guidance to help golf courses preserve and enhance wildlife habitat, and protect natural resources. Golf courses from the United States, Africa, Australia, Canada, Central America, Europe, Mexico, and Southeast Asia have achieved certification in the program.

“Harbour Ridge Yacht and Country Club has shown a strong commitment to its environmental program. They are to be commended for preserving the natural heritage of the area by protecting the local watershed and providing a sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property,” said Christine Kane, CEO at Audubon International.

“To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas,” explained Kane. These categories include: Environmental Planning, Wildlife & Habitat Management, Outreach and Education, Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation, and Water Quality Management. Courses go through a recertification process every three years.

For anglers, this “Sailfish Capital of the World” has many typical winter catches, including sailfish, wahoo, kingfish, barracuda and blackfin tuna.

With three private marinas set along two miles of pristine shoreline, Harbour Ridge offers plenty of water sports right at home. Situated along the northern shores of the St. Lucie River, residents love the convenience of taking their boat to Downtown Stuart for the day or set sail to the Bahamas, just 55 miles away. This private riverfront property also offers beautiful views along the two-mile walking trail and a well-appointed tennis complex with eight Har-Tru courts. Winding along the river and throughout the community, the two USGA-recognized championship golf courses, designed by Pete & P.B. Dye and Joe Lee, are Audubon certified as well.

(Palm City, FL) – Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club’s Director of Greens and Grounds and his golf course maintenance team were selected by Sod Solutions as the “2021 Florida Celebration Course of the Year” award recipients. This award is given annually to talented maintenance professionals who display excellence in maintaining Celebration® or Latitude 36® Bermudagrass golf courses and sports fields. The award is presented annually at the Florida Turfgrass Association Conference & Show.

Harbour Ridge Features two 18-hole golf courses; the River Ridge, a Pete & P.B. Dye designed course with tropical landscapes and vistas that can be played from any of five sets of tees, making it accessible for players of all skill levels, and the Golden Marsh, a Bobby Weed-designed course with tropical charm, swaying palms and sweeping vistas. Both courses feature wall-to-wall Celebration Bermudagrass on the tees, roughs, and fairways.

Cann, the Club’s Director of Greens and Grounds for more than 29 years, explained they were looking for turfgrass that over time would aggressively take over any previous Bermuda remnants on the course. Celebration has done that job quite well and exceeded the Club’s expectations.

Congratulations to Tim and his crew!
