Grand Harbor, living grand at Vero Beach’s premier private golf club

An exclusive members-only golf and beach experience beckons from under the Florida sun. Grand Harbor provides the best of oceanfront luxury and premium golfing facilities in beautiful Vero Beach. The club caters to those seeking a panoply of grand activities and dining experiences, along with an enviable social scene.

See and turf: the best of Vero Beach

Grand Harbor’s two golf courses, River Course and Harbor Course, designed by Joe Lee and Pete Dye respectively, will challenge even the most seasoned golfer. Both courses have been Certified Audubon Cooperative International Sanctuaries since 2001. The surrounding wetlands and water views create a spectacular backdrop to the sport.


With views of the Indian River Lagoon, the River Course calls on golfers to gather their wits as natural hazards and water holes create a welcome test along its gorgeous fairways. The Harbor Course boasts the old-world charm of tiered greens in the Scottish Links style, scattered mounds and wooden walls. Players of all skill levels will enjoy navigating this traditional course. 


Grand Harbor’s Oceanfront Beach Club grants access to one of the Treasure Coast’s most beautiful beaches. Leisurely strolls along the shore are accentuated with a meal of fresh-caught local seafood in a dining room with indoor fireplace, or outdoor seating overlooking the breathtaking view.


Beyond the course

Tennis enthusiasts will also find everything they need on one of ten Har-Tru courts, including two stadium courts. Weekly Interclub Team Tennis, Stroke and Strategy Clinics, and Men’s and Ladies’ days are part of the comprehensive programming offered to players of all levels. For members wanting to take their game up a notch, Grand Harbor will arrange sessions with USPTA teaching professionals.

The 32,000-square-foot Mediterranean-style clubhouse offers several casual dining options. The formal Grand Main Dining Room offers five-star service and is equipped with a dance floor and live music set-up.
