The Nature

South Florida has the privilege of possessing a rare and unique ecosystem, filled with exotic species of both animals and plants. Winding right past Harbour Ridge and through its marina is the St. Lucie River, one of the Treasure Coast’s largest bodies of water. Thousands of species feed from it and call it home, ranging from cattle egrets to river otters. Nature isn’t just outside of the community-Harbour Ridge works to preserve both native plant species and animal life that lives within the community. Both golf courses have been recognized as Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuaries, from to the efforts of course maintenance staff to protect the natural area surrounding it. Due to their hard work, many golfers have spotted eagles, sandhill cranes, and bobcats on the edges of the course.

The Town

Harbour Ridge has prime location close to not just rare natural areas, but also cozy towns and diverse locals. Serving as a small beach and destination town, Stuart is a short drive from the Club. A ‘flip flop and t shirt’ kind of town, the residents here enjoy a breezy, laid back lifestyle. Downtown Stuart hosts all kinds of art and culture related events, ranging from street festivals with live music to gallery showings with works done by local artists. Stuart’s history is expansive and alive as well, featuring a shipwreck to scuba dive to and explore, museums that collect memorabilia regarding Stuart’s role as a train shipping location, and the history of the Native people who lived here years ago.

Harbour Ridge is the best of the best. The two championship golf courses wind along the river with beautiful views throughout the entire courses. Residents can entertain themselves at the new Lakeside Fitness Center or explore the surrounding area with kayaks and boat rentals from the on-site Marina. An active calendar of events informs residents of the activities that will take place in the neighborhood, and consists of everything from sporting events to dinners and social gatherings.
