Harbour Ridge, located in Palm City on the Florida’s Treasure Coast, is proud to have received the 2018 USAT Tennis Facility of the Year Award.
Each year, the USTA recognizes facilities throughout the country to encourage increasingly high standards for construction and/or renovation.
Harbour Ridge was nominated for this prestigious award by Jessica Agee-Bradshaw, USTA Representative for the Florida Region 6, covering Indian River/Martin/St. Lucie Counties.
Bradshaw states, “This facility has been in the community for decades and was primarily a “resident/members only” club until about three (3) years ago. The facility was completely renovated and a new Tennis Director was put in place. Mr. Fabio Vasconcellos has turned the facility into a thriving sought after place to play tennis. He is a joy to work with and completely supports USTA programs by encouraging his members to participate. He is very proactive seeking out players and supporting the community when approached.”
USTA evaluates nominations based on the facility including quality of each court area and surface, quality of the court enclosure and lighting, overall layout and adaptation to site, accessories and amenities and evidence of good and green maintenance. Nominations are also evaluated on the tennis program including USTA programs, youth tennis programming, other tennis-related programs and important contributions to the game of tennis.
Bradshaw adds, “The tennis community is well served because of the new Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club.” A charity tennis event is scheduled for April and a second one for November. The tennis program has been under the direction of world-renowned Peter Burwash International since 1987.
Located on the St. Lucie River, Harbour Ridge is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of its award-winning amenities. Two championship golf courses wind along the river with beautiful views throughout the entire courses. The amazing 45-000 sq. ft. waterfront clubhouse is the heart of Harbour Ridge; where golfers and tennis players mingle with yachters and nature enthusiasts to create a buzzing, active neighborhood of residents, each one of whom is proud to call Harbour Ridge home. Sports and cards, activities and events, and a shared love for our Club brings members together and gives Harbour Ridge its unique appeal.
The 22,000-square foot Lakeside Spa Fitness and Tennis center is a state-of-the-art complex, and hosts a full-service salon and barber shop, signature spa services, a large spacious cardio, free weight and stretch area, TRX classes, spin room, physical therapy, private or group Pilates, along with a juice and smoothie bar. It also features the eight award-winning Har-Tru tennis courts and a stadium exhibition court along with lap swimming and water aerobics.
Harbour Ridge is a private, 885-acre community with 695 residences that overlook its two picturesque golf courses, acres of Audubon-certified nature preserves and is perfectly situated on the North Fork of the St. Lucie River. The Board of Directors, management and staff, along with members, are all dedicated to maintaining their commitment to financial soundness and stability in an environment which enables them to enrich their quality of life.
