Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club a place where you can enjoy superb amenities in a casually elegant environment. Extensive, upscale facilities combined with a limited membership make Orchid Island an exceptional place to live a place where you can relax and be yourself. Bordered by the Indian River Lagoon (Intracoastal Waterway) and Atlantic Ocean, this 600 acre private community offers an 18-hole Arnold Palmer designed Championship golf course. And while making birdies on the course may be difficult, you are certain to see a variety of beautiful birds in this Audubon Signature Sanctuary.
Or, you can walk the beach at sunrise, followed by a friendly, yet competitive tennis match. Maybe you would rather have a delicious al fresco lunch before attending an art class or a book club discussion. Perhaps kayaking the lagoon, with dolphins and manatees as your escorts, is your idea of a perfect afternoon. Or take a bike ride to the Sebastian Inlet followed by a rejuvenating massage.
At sundown, opportunities abound to gather with friends, for exceptional cuisine at the Beach Club or a more casual dining experience at the Golf Clubhouse. Additional special events are often featured, including lectures, wine tasting dinners, themed and seasonal parties. The intimate and comfortable Orchid Island lifestyle proves that you can, indeed, have it all.
As a community, Orchid Island supports many local causes, notably Habitat for Humanity, Dollars for Scholars, the Riverside Theatre, the Environmental Learning Center and the Humane Society. In the springtime you will see volunteers protecting turtle nests on the beach, and if you are really lucky, you will see the turtles hatch and scurry to the ocean.
This extraordinary Club is located just 8 miles north of the charming town of Vero Beach, which affords a wonderful array of shopping and dining options, along with eclectic art galleries. The beachside town is a step back in time; lively but not crowded; the kind of place that most people do not believe still exists. The unrivaled cultural venues include the Vero Beach Museum of Art and the Riverside Theater, both offering top-notch programs and entertainment. McKee Botanical Gardens is a historic Florida landmark, showcasing 18 acres of horticultural treasures.
We look forward to introducing you to paradise!
