If you’ve been following some of the latest winter holiday trends, you know that the Danish tradition of hygge is a popular one right now. It’s where you make your home a super-cozy, warm, and comfy nest. The Danes created this movement as an effective coping mechanism for surviving the extreme boredom, cold, and dark of their long winters. Sure, there’s nothing wrong with being hunkered down in the safety and comfort of your toasty home, but lucky for us at Harbor Club, there is no need. Our location in Georgia affords us wonderfully mild winters — so we can head out whenever we wish during the colder months of the year.
We have so many fun things to do here. Go ahead and get out of the house and enjoy some of these activities this winter.
Let us entertain you
In addition to our annual holiday parties, events, and golf tournaments, we have lively trivia and music game show nights, which are a great way to gather with friends. If you don’t feel like cooking, the Clubhouse Restaurant can whip up something delicious for you in no time. Plan to bring your sweetie to our exquisite Valentine’s Day Dinner. It’s sure to make your hearts swoon over the food …and each other.
Get fresh air and exercise outside
Even in the winter, we have fantastic weather in Georgia. What’s more, we have tons of options for getting a bit of exercise outside. If court sports are your thing, we have pickleball and tennis available. Love golf? Our award-winning, Weiskopf-Morrish-designed course is incredible to play — even in the winter. If you’re into running, jogging, or walking, we have a quarter-mile track at The Grove as well as several miles of well-maintained roads in our 24/7-secure community. If you’re into more laid-back exercise options, you can always play a game of croquet at the Clubhouse lawn or head to the dock at The Boathouse to drop a line in Lake Oconee. We’ve got several stocked ponds throughout the community where the fish are biting too.
Escape the elements and exercise inside
On the rare occasion that the weather isn’t so great, you can still get a great workout. Just head to the Fitness Center at The Grove. We’ve got plenty of fun, heart-pumping classes to take advantage of, such as Barre, Jazzercise, yoga, and more. Even if you aren’t into exercise classes, you can easily hop on one of our top-notch cardio machines or utilize the strength-training equipment to help you hit your New Year’s resolutions.
Be a tourist in your town
Lucky for us, our local area has plenty of fun things to do. Downtown Greensboro is a great place to walk and shop in the boutiques and antique stores. Try the famous buttermilk pie at Yesterday cafe. Head to the library to check out some new books, magazines, or DVDs. Pop into some of the art galleries or museums, like Uncle Remus or The Old Gaol. Historic Madison is nearby, which boasts several stunning antebellum homes, several of which offer fascinating tours.
Do a winter photoshoot
Even in the winter, Harbor Club is a beautiful place to live. Grab your camera (ok, your smartphone) and head outside to take some photos. A few iconic spots are our fountain, the Lighthouse Pavilion, the golf course, the Stables, the pretty ponds, and of course, Lake Oconee. We love seeing your photos! When you post them on Facebook and Instagram, please be sure to tag Harbor Club. We enjoy sharing your images with our thousands of followers (with your permission, of course.)
