Harbour Ridge Yacht and Country Club reopened its famed Golden Marsh Golf Course on Thursday, November 15. The $4.3M redesign began in April.

Bobby Weed, Architect, said, “This is a comprehensive update, resulting in a more natural, playable layout with greater variety and visual interest.” Originally designed by Joe Lee in 1984, this championship course has tropical charm, with swaying palms and grand sweeping vistas at every turn. Natural lakes and marshes that surround so many of the holes on this course add both an element of beauty and challenge to the course.

The redesign includes reconstructed green complexes, several greens with coquina boulder stacked walls, new bunkering, a new water-efficient irrigation system, the incorporation of coquina shell and pine straw that reduces acres of maintained turf and regrassing of the entire course.

Tim Powers, president of the Harbour Ridge Board of Directors, said: “Our members are looking forward to the re-opening and redesign of the course and we are excited to be enhancing the amenities and social experiences available here at Harbour Ridge, especially since the project will be completed without levying a membership assessment or incurring new long-term debt.”

The Golden Marsh joins the list of several Capital Improvement projects Harbour Ridge has made over the last three years, all without levying an assessment to the membership: The River Ridge 18-Hole Golf Course, also recently renovated, originally designed by Pete & P.B. Dye, the addition of a 22,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art fitness, spa and tennis center and the renovation of the 45,000 sq.ft. waterfront clubhouse.

The Treasure Coast is in no short supply of artists! The coastal landscape inspires artisans and crafters of all kinds, producing beautiful artworks and multi-medium pieces that reflect the beauty of the world around them. You can even find some of them in museums as examples of the cultural and social mindsets of the time. From gallery-worthy works of art to handmade pieces, you can find them everywhere from farmer’s markets to their own studios.

Geoffrey C. Smith Galleries

Take some time to stop in this sculpture gallery the next time that you’re in Downtown Stuart. Local artist Geoffrey Smith draws inspiration from the natural world around him, using it to create statues that are so lifelike you’d expect them to breathe. You might recognize his design of the sailfish fountain jumping out of the water- it’s the same one that stands in Downtown Stuart as a cultural symbol of the city – the Sailfish Capital of the World!

The Elliott Museum

While this Hutchinson Island classic is known for its history displays and classic car collection, it houses art of all kinds! Take some time to enjoy the significant collection of classic cars, trucks, bicycles, and boats; baseball memorabilia; local history; Americana; a variety of art; a tribute to actress Frances Langford; and even a Foucault Pendulum.

Fish House Art Center

When you’re driving along Dixie Highway, keep an eye out for this brightly colored building that serves as an art studio to many! Multiple stores call the Fish House their home, including Aya Fiber Studio, Marker 23 Gallery and Tattoo Studio, and Clay Space. Take a silk dyeing class, watch an artist at work on their craft, and peruse great fashion pieces and statement jewelry at one of the many shops here.

Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast

The staff at this museum knows that some mediums are to be consumed directly and as hands-on as possible, which is why exhibits here are completely interactive! From learning of the life cycle of a butterfly at the butterfly garden to exploring a recreation of a fire station, this is a learning experience that everyone can truly grasp!

Court House Cultural Center

Heading down Ocean Boulevard, you’ll find one of the centerpieces of arts and production within Martin County. Run by The Arts Council of Martin County, the Court House Cultural Center hosts gallery showings, productions, and events that showcase art in all its forms. Both local artists and artists from outside the area are on display here, highlighting the artistic diversity within the area.

January should provide anglers with lots of exciting action this year. Fishing in deeper water will provide you with better results on most days. Working your lures and baits much slower will also give you a better chance at success. Fish tend to become lethargic in cold water and are slow in moving to strike at lures. Finding water that is a couple of degrees warmer than the surrounding area can also give you an edge on finding fish. Water temperatures have been mild so far.

According to Captain Charlie, Redfish can be found around docks and sitting on the flats on warm, sunny days. Try a DOA shrimp around mangroves and docks for reds. The trout bite has greatly improved this past year and it should continue to get better. Snook season is closed for now and it will continue to be catch and release. Bridges, docks and the inlets will be the best opportunities to catch snook this month.

Bridges will continue to produce sheepshead, black drum, croakers, sand perch and bluefish. Most of the anglers on the catwalks prefer live or frozen shrimp for these fish. The drum and sheepshead have once again arrived early, and action has already been steady for these tasty fish. The inlet and turning basin will be full of bluefish, jacks and mackerel this month. Live or dead bait on a jig head will give you plenty of action along with silver spoons or shiny lures. Around seawalls, channel edges or deeper structure you can find grouper for catch and release action in January. Pompano fishing will depend on water temperatures for their location, but they will be in the area throughout the winter. Surf anglers will be targeting these fish on days when the beach is fishable. Enjoy fishing in January on the Treasure Coast!

The weather forecast is looking great for fishing, as well. The late summer atmosphere, along with the Atlantic Ridge Axis shifting from Central to South Florida means that the air and water temperatures are less likely to produce storms. Enjoy a few weeks of warm blue waters and mostly sunny blue skies.
The fishing and the weather make it great to spend time outdoors. One of the best possible places to cast is near Harbour Ridge – located on the North Fork of the St. Lucie River. The lifestyle of this private community is centered around the water and second to none.

Hiking through South Florida is a treat that grants wildlife animal sightings, treks through wild and nearly untouched land, and beautiful landscapes. Residents and members at Harbour Ridge are lucky enough to have this all in their backyards. If you’re looking for the newest place to try out your hiking shoes, try one of these parks and trails.

South Fork Trail at Halpatiokee Regional Park

As the largest park in Martin County, it hosts over 65 acres of land. Here you can hike miles of landscapes from pine flat woods to scrub. When you’re hiking, you’ll also come in contact with the south fork of the St. Lucie River on occasion. The views are beautiful.

Indian Riverside Park

This gorgeous, expansive park offers everything from boardwalk trails alongside the waterfront to winding paths that take you throughout the park. Along the way, take younger children to the Children’s Museum, or see if you can’t get a glimpse of the Tuckahoe Mansion.

Poppleton Creek Dog Park Trails

What’s more fun than running through miles of trails, viewing endangered ecosystems, and coming face to face with animals unique to the area? Doing all that with your dog! Aside from the hiking trails that take you through wetlands, scrub Flatwoods, and sand pine scrub, there’s a dog park that hosts separate areas for both big breeds and small breeds and a dog washing station.

Veterans Memorial Bridge

Okay, so it’s not technically a trail, but it does have the supreme views and exercise value that these other trails do. Walk it in the morning to watch the sunrise over the water and make sure to keep an eye out for wildlife such as ospreys and hawks! Run it later in the afternoon for a workout that will really put you in a sweat!

Harbour Ridge

If you’re looking for hiking trails that highlight Florida’s nature and wild beauty, there aren’t any better than the ones at Harbour Ridge. The miles of trails cut through the neighborhood, making them perfect both for an evening walk with friends or an early morning run. Having received the Outstanding Florida Community Award from Audubon International, you’ll be able to catch glimpses of all kinds of wildlife, ranging from bald eagles to river otters. Your hiking doesn’t have to stay on the land-the community’s location by the St. Lucie River means that you can explore twisted mangrove paths and river trails by kayak.

Ideal Living, a country club and lifestyle magazine, had nothing but praise for South Florida golf and country club, Harbour Ridge, discussing how its receptive staff, full amenity services, and high standards caught the online magazine’s eye. “As one of the first private waterfront golf communities in the state of Florida,” Ideal Living explained, “Harbour Ridge has become a proud treasure of the Treasure Coast.” Through its dedication to service and commitment to quality, Harbour Ridge has worked to be an inseparable part of the Treasure Coast-and a great club that excels the standards of Ideal Living. Of particular interest to the publication is Harbour Ridge’s location, its natural surroundings, and its amenities. After all, they are what help a club stand out, and their level of quality and service are measures to judge a club by. Check out why Ideal Living spoke so highly of Harbour Ridge’s offerings.

The Amenities

Harbour Ridge’s extensive amenities accommodate to every interest and hobby. A full list of clubs range from photography to books to even biking. A full social calendar hosts events and holidays for members to meet each other, congregate, and connect. Outdoorsy types will enjoy everything that the Club has to offer, from nine tennis courts, complete with tennis shop and training sessions from professionals, to the two golf courses designed by Pete and P.B. Dye and Joe Lee, the Golf Pro Center where players can improve their game with the help of golf pros, the fully stocked golf shop, and the Golf Club where players can cool off after a long game with drinks and good company. The fully equipped Marina has kayaks and paddleboards ready for rental, so that the residents of Harbour Ridge can explore their wild backyard.

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.

Between the excitement of the Space Coast and the glamour of the Palm Beaches lies a special gem that many people have never heard of. The Treasure Coast, a unique paradise with a friendly atmosphere and small-town charisma, is also home to the charming city of Stuart. Originally used as a pineapple farming area and a stop for trains carrying cargo, the town has since established itself for offering boutique shopping, waterfront dining, and tons of entertainment while still maintaining its small-town atmosphere and connection to nature. Here, it’s not rare to be greeted with a warm smile and a friendly hello. The residents at Harbour Ridge are always ready to chat about their favorite local spots.

Stuart offers a quaint and laidback lifestyle like no other. In 2016, it was even designated as ‘America’s Happiest Seaside Town’ by Coastal Living. With a stroll through downtown, residents can grab a bite to eat, visit the weekly Stuart Green Market, experience live entertainment and enjoy access to the St. Lucie River. From the historic downtown shopping district to the beaches and Intracoastal Waterway, Stuart exudes a unique charm not found anywhere else.

Stuart’s quaint atmosphere is also enhanced by its connection to nature. It’s not uncommon to catch glimpses of your natural neighbors such as blue herons, manatees or dolphins on a morning walk around the downtown boardwalk. Boating here is a very popular pastime. Stuart is even known as the Sailfish Capital of the World for its abundance of sport fishing opportunities. There’s so much to do here, yet it remains away from it all.

The Rookery

Tons of wildlife call Harbour Ridge their home including sandhill cranes and other feathered friends. The best-kept secret of Harbour Ridge is the rookery. Every morning, hundreds of birds leave this large tree to go about their day, and then return to it at sunset. It’s really an incredible sight.

Two Championship Golf Courses

Harbour Ridge’s two championship golf courses wind along the river with beautiful views throughout the entire courses. The Daily Telescope named Harbour Ridge the Golf Course Home Community of the Year in 2017. Golfing in this unique community is an experience that you won’t want to end.

Secluded Marina

Situated along the St. Lucie River, Harbour Ridge has plenty of watersports for everyone. From kayaking to paddle boarding and boating, everyone is sure to have fun in the sun!

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start planning out your boating destinations. The places to fish, dine, and just enjoy yourself on the Treasure Coast are endless. Here are a few of Harbour Ridge’s favorite local spots.

Peck’s Lake Nature Park, Hobe Sound

Situated right in between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, Peck’s Lake is exclusive to boaters. A private and natural oasis, boats of all sizes can anchor along Peck’s Lake’s beautiful scenery from the river. Walk just a few hundred feet on the boardwalk through the mangroves, and you’ll find yourself looking out at the endless ocean horizon. Pack a picnic and bring a book. Heading to Peck’s Lake is a great way to spend a beautiful sunny day!

Historic Downtown Stuart

There is so much to do in Downtown Stuart. Take your boat right up to the Riverwalk, dock at the public access and explore all it has to offer. Stroll through the town window-shopping and grab a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants…Spritz, Gaffords, The Black Marlin and the Riverwalk Oyster Bar to name a few. We also recommend an ice cream from Kilwins on a summer day. Listen to live music at the Rock’n Riverwalk and check out what’s fresh at the Stuart Green Market every Sunday. You don’t have to worry about finding a parking spot when you take your boat to get downtown. For a fun nightcap, stop by The Board Room underneath Mulligans along the Riverwalk.

Manatee Pocket, Port Salerno

Manatee Pocket is a sheltered bay off the Intracoastal and Okeechobee Waterways. This historical fisherman’s village has great waterfront dining and nightlife that is boat friendly with plenty of spots to dock. Manatee Island Bar & Grill and Shrimpers Grill & Raw Bar are just a few of the local favorites. The Twisted Tuna is perfect for a night out listening to live bands on the water.

Sewall’s Point Flats (Indian River and Saint Lucie Sides)

Across the Indian River from Sailfish Point, you’ll find the Sewall’s Point docks. The Indian River side of Sewall’s Point is a great year-round spot for anglers looking for Snook. The Saint Lucie side is known for its concentration of flounder and redfish. Both are great spots to cast a line without having to venture off shore.

Situated on the North Fork of the St. Lucie River, Harbour Ridge’s shoreline encompasses two miles of beautiful, pristine riverfront. Here, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds with a secluded safe harbor for your vessel and with easy ocean access just minutes away. Harbour Ridge is home to three private marinas with a combined 98 slips, ranging in size from 24 to 60 feet. For the non-boaters in the community, the estuary shoreline is also a haven for anglers, as the river is teeming with redfish, snook, tarpon and trout.
