Golf tees off camaraderie of Indian River Colony Club
Have you ever wondered what's behind the walls at Indian River Colony Club in Viera?
Just one of the Top 20 Golf Communities in North America, according to the editors of GolfCourseHome.com, a leading online real estate website for U.S. golf properties.
Editors acknowledge that golf is no longer an all-encompassing pastime, noting that "progressive country club communities have pushed beyond golf to augment their community experience to enrich residents with a wide variety of soul-satisfying activities that match their passions and interests."
Eight amenity categories differentiated the Top 20 Golf Communities winners. The 55-plus neighborhood of predominantly military retirees was recognized for its Indian River Colony Club Foundation, a not-for-profit entity designed to accommodate the community's commitment to charitable giving. Also known as "The Place Patriots Call Home," 453-acre Indian River Colony Club features a one-of-a-kind private par-72 golf course with 18 challenging holes nestled among natural preserves, a lakefront and golf course homes.
Each hole is shaped around a scenic lake or pond. Features include a Pro Shop, aqua driving range, two putting greens and practice bunkers. For more information on the golf course, call 321-255-6000 or go to IndianRiverColonyclub.com/golf.
