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.
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!

Farmers’ markets have taken off in the past couple of years, and it’s easy to see why. The Treasure Coast’s tropical climate is perfect for fruits to grow, makes delicious beef and eggs, and gives everyone a good excuse to get outside and get together. After all, who could turn down a day that starts with watching the river go by as you eat breakfast, buying some of the freshest produce from local farmers and dancing along to live music?
Fort Pierce Farmer’s Market
We’d argue that although there are many amazing markets out there, none of them could come close to the Downtown Fort Pierce Farmers’ Market. There’s so much to check out here, and so much of it has been grown, raised or made right in here South Florida. One such example is the dips at Dani’s Healthy Organic Fun Food. Everything on the table is delicious, from the crackers to the amazing Lemon-y Artichoke Dip, and Dani himself made everything. Make sure to stop and grab a box of cinnamon and sugar sprinkled donuts from Cider Doughnuts. They’re freshly made right in front of you, and make for the perfect snack! If you want a gift to send to family up north that’s authentically Florida, grab them a box of oranges from Al’s Family Farms. Locally grown right in South Florida, you won’t find sweeter citrus anywhere else.
Stuart Green Market
The Stuart Green Market started out in the 90s by people whose dream it was to bring locally grown produce and goods to the people of Stuart. Roughly 30 years later, that dream is still alive, thanks to the vendors who show up every Sunday and the buyers who come to enjoy live music, shopping, and great food by the waterfront. No one can resist a salty treat from Sea Turtle Concessions, which serves up hot dogs and ice-cold drinks every Sunday at the market! Grab some produce from Whole Plant Food, or wooden bowls from Otton Wood making. Walk down the waterfront a little ways, and you’ll come across PJ Ranch, known for their sweet syrups! Whether you’re looking for maple syrup, mangrove honey from Florida mangroves, or sorghum, they have it all of the stickiest, sweetest stuff here.
When you’re purchasing fruit or honey from a farmer’s market, you’re getting more than just produce. You’re getting something that’s authentically Florida. Most folks think that that’s hard to find these days, but it turns out that it’s closer than you think. And Harbour Ridge is in the heart of it all.
Located just a short way from each of these farmer’s markets on the Treasure Coast, Harbour Ridge embraces the area’s authenticity in so many ways.
