When it’s time to get out and enjoy what the beautiful Treasure Coast of Florida offers, we have a few suggestions for the perfect Saturday (or every day). For residents of Harbour Ridge on Florida’s Treasure Coast, the options are so varied it will definitely require more than 24 hours to take it all in! This private golf and boating community has the perfect formula for the passionate outdoor lover, and it all takes place in one of the most pristine settings you’ll find along the coast.
Let the Day Begin with Wildlife
The Rookery Trail at sunrise is the perfect way to start your day. Along the trail in the Buttonbush neighborhood are numerous mangroves lining the water’s edge. The mangroves in Harbour Ridge support many notable species of birds, including Egrets, Wilson’s Plover, Least Terns, and Black Skimmers. You won’t want to miss when these colorful birds take flight and fill the sky at sunrise. There is nothing like witnessing these remarkable birds burst into the sky as one.
Satisfy Your Weekend Brunch Cravings
After a relaxing walk on the trail, one can make their way over to the welcoming Clubhouse, the social epicenter of Harbour Ridge, to enjoy a delicious brunch. Iconic by design, the Clubhouse is perfectly designed to take full advantage of the panoramic vistas of the picturesque St. Lucie River. The elegant 45,000 square feet clubhouse, with all of its luxurious amenities, is the heart of the community.
Splash into Fun Under the Sun
Perhaps you’d like to add some water adventures to your day. Residents enjoy boating from the protected harbor on the St. Lucie River in the Okeechobee Waterway, where they can venture out to the Atlantic for sailfishing, and maybe stop at the St. Lucie Inlet sandbar for some family fun upon the return. The entire family will relish discovering playful dolphins or manatees, and the kids might find starfish or other magnificent sea creatures native to the area.
When you’ve made your way back to the marina you can enjoy kayaking the mangrove shoreline of the St. Lucie River estuaries, or paddle boarding through the St. Lucie River, South Branch trail, to see a variety of birds and other wildlife.
Be on Your Game in Unspoiled Nature
After you’ve explored the great outdoors, unwind with a round of golf on either of the two 18-hole championship golf courses. Each course poses multiple challenges for any level golfer, and the breathtaking course provides a stunning sensory experience as you breathe in the salt air and luscious greens. Enjoy the panoramic vistas offered by the Pete and P.B. Dye-designed River Ridge to the lush Golden Marsh course originally designed by Joe Lee and recently redesigned by Bobby Weed. Golf at Harbour Ridge is truly a testament to the thrill of the game.
Get Some Court Time
Do you prefer to play a game of tennis? Tennis is its own community within the community here, and Harbour Ridge’s tennis facilities are superb. The well-appointed tennis complex includes shaded areas between the eight Har-Tru courts and one stadium exhibition, the highest grade of clay court available today. The tennis program at Harbour Ridge includes weekly socials, round-robin tournaments, and multiple tennis team competitions.
A Perfect Ending to the Day
Finally, we get to the best part of a day at Harbour Ridge… dusk, when the crimson sky ignites and sandhill cranes silhouette as they cross the horizon. Enjoy roasting marshmallows at the firepit as stars blink above you and listen as the cicadas call in the night sky, or enjoy a cocktail at the riverside bar with friends as you celebrate the day. Already knowing that tomorrow can be another perfect day at Harbour Ridge.
