What has changed for you within the last year—have you become glued to your hand sanitizer, began a fitness journey, or explored a new hobby? From sanitation stations to touchless entries, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed not only the landscape of real estate development but the priorities of buyers and renters as well. As the world has become accustomed to spending copious amounts of time at home, new amenities have redefined private club communities and become essential for homebuyers. Discover what health amenities the Treasure Coast’s Harbour Ridge residents cannot live without in 2021.
After what feels like years spent mostly stuck inside, fresh air and open space have become a necessity for many homebuyer’s searches. The Treasure Coast is surrounded by natural lands and refuges that offer plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities, both near Harbour Ridge and off the beaten path. Trails and parks provide mountain bikers, and both day hikers and backpackers a delightful getaway. For a more tranquil experience, residents can enjoy a cell-phone-free afternoon of birdwatching amid one of the area’s breathtaking wildlife preserves. With three marinas and two miles of pristine shoreline bordering the Club, kayaking, fishing and boating are among the best ways to enjoy the stunning natural landscape of Harbour Ridge as well. Why not lay poolside with a drink in hand too?
The Clubhouse hosts some of the best spots to enjoy St. Lucie River views on the patio and alongside the boardwalk or gather under the stars at one of Harbour Ridge’s fire pits and grills—the possibilities are endless. Our residents aren’t the only ones who get to enjoy waterfront living. The Harbour Ridge dog park features agility courses, fenced and shaded areas, walking trails and water stations for our furry friends of all sizes. Whether looking for a day in the sun, or a space to enjoy a picnic outdoors, Harbour Ridge has something for everyone.
While public gyms have been creative in following social distancing, capacity, and sanitizing guidelines, the future of fitness centers lies in smaller, intimate spaces that offer both privacy and safety. The 22,000-square foot Lakeside Spa, Fitness and Tennis complex offers a full range of cardio and strength equipment including TRX, complemented by Pilates equipment training, personal training and massages. Lakeside is the perfect place to begin your journey of health and fitness. With a series of programs including favorites like Interval Training, Yoga, Spin, Water Aerobics and Body Sculpting, there is something for everyone with health and wellness at the forefront.
For outdoor exercise, Harbour Ridge is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses and offers members full access to renowned golf training and learning programs geared for beginners to advanced players. Each hole provides the perfect mix of stunning views and “playability”. Harbour Ridge’s tennis facilities are second to none. The tennis program is very active with weekly socials, round-robin tournaments, and men’s and women’s tennis team competitions. After teeing up on the green or serving up a game of tennis, cool off in the club’s state-of-the-art lap pool. Like fitness, homebuyers today are drawn to additional health and wellness features like Harbour Ridge’s conscious menus offering mouth-watering salads, juice and energizing smoothies, and amenities that pamper. At the Spa and Salon at Lakeside, residents enjoy European-style spa services with a full complement of treatments available for the entire family.
Those who wish to “go to the office” without leaving home often seek out this option in their social lives too. As a result, private dining rooms and event spaces are becoming more popular in 2021. At Harbour Ridge, residents can enjoy a world-class meal without leaving the Club. The Grille Room offers Sunday brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks in a casual, comfortable setting that encourages easy conversation with impeccable service. The Riverview Dining Room and Eagle’s Nest Lounge boast breathtaking views and elegant dining experiences. For those yearning for a place for family and friends to enjoy live music and cocktails while watching the beautiful sunset colors reflect on the estuary waters, Dockside Pavilion is the spot.
From casual sandwiches after a round of golf to pizza with the family or a gourmet meal on a special occasion, Harbour Ridge has options to suit every appetite. Members also have the benefit of sharing the delectable cuisine of the Club with friends and family at your next party through Harbour Ridge’s catering service. Whether you’re hosting a wedding, corporate event, party at the Club, or gathering at your home, Harbour Ridge will cater events of all sizes, allowing you to simply relax and enjoy.

What could be better to pair with signature wines than light snacks provided by Chef Rob’s Culinary Team? To accommodate social distancing guidelines, members have even enjoyed virtual tasting experiences from home, offering the same one-of-a-kind samples with a twist. Upcoming events will be held on March 28th and April 25th, but those unable to attend do not need to worry. The Club will hold featured wines at the Clubhouse for pick-up at the member’s convenience.

Like Wine Society Members, Wine Locker Members are among the first to access selected wine events, receive special wine offers and limited quantity features 48-hours in advance before the general membership. Members enjoy 10% off any case of wine and/or retail wine sales that are purchased through the Club. Harbour Ridge Wine Locker Members are taken care of when it comes to events, one of the most desired features among members is the waived corkage fee. This is accessible at any time, location, or event, provided that the wine be served directly from the member’s wine locker. Marissa, a second-year Wine Locker Member, recounted that “the service is great! I love that I never have to pay extra to enjoy my favorite wines when I’m at the Clubhouse.” From exclusive deals to top-notch service, Wine Locker Members are treated like royalty at Harbour Ridge.
Harbour Ridge wine lovers may enjoy endless experiences throughout the community. Yet, the Wine Society and Wine Locker Members alike can even enjoy benefits when traveling to outside wine destinations. The Club’s level 1 wine sommelier, Marco Piccoli, can provide helpful tips and information. This may include complimentary tours and VIP tastings (subject to availability) of select wineries. Harbour Ridge is looking forward to having members back this season and enjoying all of the great features that the program offers amid the very best of waterfront, country club living.
