There are so many priorities when homebuyers are searching for their Florida dream home. The location, the architecture, the home type, the anticipated lifestyle – but for many, it all comes down to identifying their most important priorities. For those seeking the camaraderie and services of a private country club lifestyle, it’s not often that one has the opportunity to enjoy both the beach and golf in one community. Unless you’ve really done your homework!
On a barrier island, tucked between the Atlantic Coast and the Indian River near Vero Beach, Florida, Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club provides their Resident Members with an unprecedented lifestyle that encompasses the very best of Florida living. A secluded oceanfront shoreline showcases nature’s beauty, while the 18-hole Palmer-designed golf course is a certified Audubon sanctuary.
Just steps over the dune walk from the pristine beach, the Orchid Island Beach Club is a cherished favorite for its elegant yet relaxed island setting. Designed in true West Indies style, the Beach Club takes full advantage of the ocean breezes throughout its many gathering spaces. The Pool Grille & Turtle Bar offers an easygoing setting where family and friends can come refresh after a day on the beach, bond over burgers, and possibly a frozen drink or two. The tropical seaside pool is surrounded by private cabanas which are available for purchase by Resident Members subject to availability.
It’s been called the best of the best. For a more formal setting, dining at the Beach Club provides an unparalleled seaside ambiance and amazing farm-to-table gourmet food by Chef Sozio. Carefully balancing daily specials with club favorites, Sozio, and his staff delivers a culinary experience unlike any other.
