What are those odds? 67 Million To 1 to be exact.

The average American golfer makes a hole-in-one once every 12,000 rounds. On Saturday, May 8, Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club member Patsy Harris, defeated those odds by a long shot.

Patsy, a member at Harbour Ridge since 2014, decided to start her day off with a final 18-hole round of golf for the 2021 season. Little did she know it would end in 67 million to 1 odds! She teed off the River Ridge #10 at 8:16 a.m. and just under an hour later, using a 5 hybrid from 105 yards, she made her second-ever hole-in-one on hole #14. Once Patsy got to the 7th hole at 11:35 a.m., she thought it best to use her 6 hybrid from 102 yards. She swings, she…SINKS IT! Incredibly, she successfully sunk her second (and third-ever) hole-in-one; same round, same course, same day!

Patsy, who calls herself a “bogey” golfer with a handicap of 19, said, “I am always just happy to clear the hazards and get the ball on the green; none of our Par 3s are easy!” My golf group, ‘The Queen of the Greens’, was so excited after the first hole-in-one — high fiving and taking photos. “After the second, I was in shock!” Members of her foursome that day included Jill Kelly, Barbara Alesi, and Elaine McCusker.

Patsy also said she and her husband Andy are a golfing family. They have been playing golf together for nearly 50 years. Their two sons, David and Daniel, are single-digit golfers who have a total of 3-hole-in-ones between them (GO, MOM!). She’s proud to now have passed their love for golf down to their four grandsons, ages 13, 10, 9, and 6. The 13-year-old is already on track to catch up with Grandma with his first hole-in-one this past November. “Golfing is a passion for me—I love it in all its forms, and I am still working on my game.”

The Pete and P.B. Dye designed River Ridge course has hosted numerous qualifying rounds for USGA championships, including the U.S. Open. The River Ridge course boasts one of the highest slope ratings in all of Florida, and can be played from any of five sets of tees to accommodate all handicap levels.

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.

Outdoor Space

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.

Fitness

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.

On-property Entertaining

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.

Society members pick up two pre-selected featured wines and enjoy sample wine tastings and light canapés (canapés are available on the evening of the event, only). 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. On top of Vines on the Veranda events, Wine Society members enjoy the luxury of first access to selected wine events throughout the year. Due to the continued changes in Harbour Ridge’s dining guidelines and policies, digital communications have alerted members to early reservation access. There will be one additional wine event planned this season; will you be in attendance?

Wine events fill Harbour Ridge’s calendar each year, attracting wine enthusiasts throughout the community. Although, it is the unbeatable benefits that gain the Wine Society the most attention. Wine Society Members are allowed up to two bottles of waived corkage fees during each a la carte dining visit, and discounted fees on Holidays, Special Events, and Golf Tournaments. Hosting a party or stocking up for the summer? Wine Society Members receive 10% off any case of wine and/or retail wine sales that are purchased through the Club. Members also receive another 10% off a Club Wine Locker. Furthermore, wine special offers or limited quantity features are sent 48-hours prior to the general membership’s Wine-1-1 e-blasts.

Harbour Ridge Wine Locker Membership

Imagine sipping fine wine matched with savory bites and social hour among family and friends – the Wine Locker Membership unlocks a new level of luxury. Locker Members greatly anticipate two complimentary special “Wine Locker Member-Only” parties. These include the Champagne & Wine Locker Soirée and the beloved Paris Tasting Party. 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.

The heart and social epicenter of Harbour Ridge is our 45,000 square foot Clubhouse that is perfectly designed to take full advantage of the panoramic vistas of the picturesque St. Lucie River.

It wasn’t until she moved to Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club that Lois Fraser bought her first “real” camera. Mrs. Fraser became a photographer as a way to look deeper into the world around her and share that sense of discovery with others. Most of what she has learned is through her involvement with the Harbour Ridge Birding Society, which she is now the president of, doing a lot of reading about nature, and she also started a nature blog (Nature Notes) to share her discoveries. She is even on her way to becoming a Florida Master Naturalist too.

Her photography really gives you a sense of the diversity of wildlife and how they have made their home at Harbour Ridge and their daily lives as “Members.” You can see the cranes pecking for worms on the fairways, otters have a casual conversation in the pickerelweed, and black skimmers doing aerial gymnastic-like moves as they skim for fish.

“Looking through the lens of my camera helped me discover the diversity of wildlife here at Harbour Ridge. That made me curious about each of the species I was photographing, as well as the habitats that support them,” says Mrs. Fraser on photographing around the community.

Although the birds in her backyard were one of her initial inspirations to pick up a camera, Mrs. Fraser’s photography also ranges from all types of wildlife from a peninsula cooter turtle making its way to another pond to a dragonfly resting on a branch to anoles “doing the dewlap.”

Size does not matter either as she has also focused on the local osprey at the top of the food chain all the way down to a sweat bee pollinating the flowers in her yard…There is nothing that she doesn’t capture!

photography collage of two opsrey and a sweat bee on a flower

“I feel fortunate every day to live in a place where I can drive around in my golf cart and find so many interesting things to photograph. Nature at Harbour Ridge is beautiful at first glance, but when you start looking more closely, it’s truly amazing!” says Mrs. Fraser.

It’s no secret that Harbour Ridge is home to nature enthusiasts. With two miles of waterfront and 885 acres of unspoiled beauty, this Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary-certified community offers a level of privacy and a connection with nature that is unmatched. There are many different ways the residents interact with the natural surroundings, but Lois Fraser enjoys using the lens of her camera to view, capture and learn more about her community’s natural beauty.

While the holidays looked a little different this year, Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club went above and beyond to provide their members with a jolly and safe, holiday season. The community quickly transformed itself into a winter wonderland. Residents decorated their “village” entrances with wreaths, holiday decorations and lights. You could even find reindeer wearing a mask! Even with the current social distancing guidelines, members at Harbour Ridge were still able to come together and celebrate the holiday season together.

The festivities started at the beginning of the month with the Holiday Golf Cart Parade and lighting of the Clubhouse. Members lined up at Lakeside Fitness Center with their golf carts decked out with extravagant Christmas decorations to put together the most festive cart imaginable. Golf carts were wrapped with lights, garland and ribbon and some were even topped with holiday inflatables. The parade route concluded at the Clubhouse where they joined other members and socially distanced outside to enjoy a holiday cocktail and watched the full lighting of the Clubhouse and Dockside Christmas tree.

Keeping traditions alive, there was a little twist on the Annual Bring-a-Gift event. As members in the parade arrived at the Clubhouse, they each dropped off their unwrapped toy to be donated to local charities.

Harbour Ridge Golf Cart Parade

The holiday season at Harbour Ridge wouldn’t be complete without a Holiday Boat Parade! The festive evening kicked-off with an enjoyable dinner at the Clubhouse and then moved closer to the water at one of the three marinas. Members lined the riverside trail to see fellow Harbour Ridge boaters parade by for a bright display of holiday lights. Just like the golf carts, there was not an inch of any boat that wasn’t decorated. There were even some Christmas carolers there to fill with air with holiday cheer as the boats lit up the St. Lucie River.

The festivities don’t stop there, and the best is still to come! Harbour Ridge is ready to say goodbye to 2020 and bring in 2021 with a bang. Members can celebrate the New Year socially-distant in their own homes with New Year’s Eve party boxes filled with all the NYE essentials: party hats, streamers, noisemakers, a bottle of champagne and a chef-prepared three-course meal. There will of course be fireworks from the Golden Marsh course to welcome 2021.

Already looking ahead to next year, the member events calendar is filled with events from golf tournaments like the member annual Go Pink! Tournament, to supporting the Cleveland Clinic Martin Health Foundation Breast Cancer Navigator Program or the Yacht Club’s all-new annual fishing tournament. We can’t wait to see what else 2021 brings!

As Featured in The Wall Street Journal, Mansion Global, Luxury Homes & Developments. – Driving through the gates of Harbour Ridge, a waterfront community in Palm City, Florida, it’s hard not to feel instantly more relaxed. The picturesque property is part of the region’s Treasure Coast, on the shores of the St. Lucie River, with views straight from a postcard. And it isn’t merely the scenery that washes away worries; it’s Harbour Ridge’s commitment to providing a safe sense of normalcy in unprecedented times.

“When the pandemic hit, many members shared that they felt like life remained mostly unchanged as they were in their ‘safety bubble,'” says Michael J. Salerno, general manager and COO of Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club. “They were still comfortable enjoying life here safely. Seasonal residents stayed longer than they would typically — with staff providing grocery deliveries, an onsite green market, the ability to golf and boat, and a host of other activities.”

As residents return to the property to reconnect with loved ones over the holidays, the staff is doubling down on these comforts with many of their annual festive events in place, albeit altered for safety. For instance, this year’s 5K Turkey Trot will be held virtually.

“We still have our family-friendly outdoor Winter Wonderland event, complete with snow, cookie decorating and pictures with Santa at our riverfront dining venue, Dockside,” Salerno says. “And there’s a holiday boat parade and outdoor tree lighting ceremony for all members and their families to safely enjoy by the riverfront. We are continuing to plan events for the season as best and safely as possible.”

Those remaining physically distant from relatives outside of their immediate household during a time of year when family is everything can still take solace in the warmth of such a close-knit community.

“Our staff gets to know our members, their families and guests,” says Salerno. “They have a service-led heart where they genuinely want to help and provide memories that last a lifetime.”

The Treasure Coast is surrounded by natural lands and refuges that offer plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities; but Harbour Ridge stands out from the rest and is every nature lover’s dream. Just recently, this private community was recognized for 20 years of certification as an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary and even received the Outstanding Florida Community Award. Members of this community continue to cherish this nature sanctuary, whether it be on a walking trail or on the river. They even assist local wildlife services with conservation efforts, such as protecting and caring for on-site wildlife. At Harbour Ridge, Florida’s wildlife lives alongside humanity at its own pace.

If you’re still not convinced, here are 8 reasons why nature lovers should call Harbour Ridge home—

1. The Unmatched Rookery

This large collection of mangroves is home to an abundance of egrets and other birds, making it a superior area for bird watching…it’s where the birds fly out in the morning and return at night at the same times, just like clockwork. This spot is an absolute favorite of the Harbour Ridge Birders Club!

2. Picturesque Waterfront Trails

Residents have access to miles and miles of nature trails coursing through the community and a majority of them have a waterfront view. The most prominent is the two-mile River Side Trail along the St. Lucie River. These paths are surrounded by wetlands and lakes, including scenic Mile Lake, that are bursting with active native wildlife.

3. A Preserve Within a Sanctuary

Very, very few communities can say they have an Eagle Preserve on their property and Harbour Ridge is one of them. This Audubon-certified preserve is of comprised of 35 acres within the Golden Marsh course, where two Southern Bald Eagles nested for many years and their nest is still intact.

4. Waterfront Clubhouse that Captures the Magic

The Clubhouse offers panoramic views of the St. Lucie River and is tucked under the large Spanish Oaks that gives residents the feeling of being outside while inside. While enjoying a sunset dinner, the nightly entertainment is often provided by the Harbour Ridge wildlife.

5. An Aquatic Kingdom Awaits

There’s almost a guarantee you’ll spot some type of wildlife activity while on the river, whether that be a manatee visiting the surface or an osprey fishing for a snack.

6. The Nautical Haven

Three marinas, easy access to the Florida Waterways, and just 55 miles from the Bahamas— it’s no wonder that Harbour Ridge is the ultimate address for boaters. This community not only gives members the opportunity to indulge in nature on land, but also on the water with endless access.

7. Get Up Close and Personal with Nature

Boating isn’t the only way to experience the peaceful intercoastal waterways, at Harbour Ridge, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding are two very popular activities. Both activities make is easy to explore the wildlife on the river being as they can effortlessly venture through the mangrove-shoreline. Plus, there is a member-run Kayak Club!

8. Golf That Celebrates Its Surroundings

Members can play a round of golf alongside a sandhill crane as it strides across the green. Many of the fairways are surrounded by long freshwater lakes, which can be unfortunate for golfers, but an absolute joy for nature enthusiasts looking for wildlife. Both championship golf courses are even certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses.

This unique community offers a variety of amenities for its members that make it unlike any other. Specifically, the waterfront luxuries make this the ideal home for boating enthusiasts. With direct water access, boaters have not only found their home at Harbour Ridge, but also their boat’s home.

Downtown Stuart is also a convenient cruise down the river. For those up for an adventure, the west end of the Bahamas is just 55 miles from the coastline. While out in the deep ocean, fishermen love to spend time in the open water off of Stuart as it is known as the “Sailfish Capital of the World.”

More Ways to Enjoy the Waterfront

Even without a boat, residents can still enjoy the natural waterfront amenities. Harbour Ridge’s two miles of estuary shoreline is a haven for anglers as the river is filled with redfish, snook, tarpon, and trout. Anglers are not limited to the shoreline as kayak fishing is fast growing in popularity. Residents can also explore the picturesque river scenery via kayaks or paddleboards or small sailboats. With a small ramp located next to the main marina at the Clubhouse, residents can easily put in their own kayak or paddleboard or use one of the Club’s. The Water Taxi also makes its way up the St. Lucie River for those nights when you want to kick back and head downtown for dinner by boat. The Club even owns two entertaining pontoon boats that are available to rent, giving its members another convenient way to enjoy the benefits of waterfront living.
