When you think of a “country club” what exactly do you envision? In your mind’s eye, the image likely includes a picturesque golf course. Golf is a fantastic and fun sport, but there is so much more to a modern country club than that. Here at Harbor Club, we’ve created a more contemporary club culture with a wide array of offerings and experiences that entice both golfers and non-golfers alike.
The country club of today is more akin to a family-centric activity center. Besides the standard offerings of exclusive golf, tennis, and swimming, there are other fun-filled fitness options and activities. There are also more social, leisurely, and educational events for all ages to appreciate. Consider Harbor Club as a good example, as members can take advantage of:
A pool; tennis clinics, lessons, and tournaments; as well as men’s and ladies golf associations are relatively typical of a country club. Outside the norm is the fast-growing sport of pickleball, which is taking the nation by storm. We’ve recently added several new pickleball courts to satisfy the need and have avid teams that play almost every day. Another fun sport is croquet. It’s a leisurely, yet strategic game that is enjoyed by all ages. We play at Harbor Club every Friday morning on our beautiful croquet lawn. Fishing is a sport too, right? If your family likes to fish, our team at The Boathouse equip you for a great day out on Lake Oconee. Also, our ponds are well-stocked for easy, catch-and-release fishing.
Hobbies and clubs
The Ladies League is a fantastic group of women who engage in educational luncheons, local field trips, charitable events, and social gatherings (including Southern Living-Inspired Bunco.) Then there is our Victory Garden, which is the pride and joy of our avid garden club. It features several professionally designed, raised beds to help gardeners (young and old) grow vegetables and other healthy plants with ease. There are other fun-filled clubs, including a book club, men’s poker group, marathon bridge club, a game group, and more.
Multiple fitness options
The 2000-square foot fitness center at The Grove provides a wealth of options for getting fit. Besides the well-equipped gym (with cardio and strength-training equipment) there are several classes to enjoy. These include Men’s Golf Yoga Conditioning, Barre & Toning, Zumba, Gentle Stretch Yoga, and Jazzercise, to name a few. The Grove campus also includes a hiking trail, a Fit-Trail, a quarter-mile track, and a multi-use sports field.
Social, recreational, and leisure opportunities
Want to hang out with fellow dog owners? Our dog park at The Grove is the place to be. The large, fenced in areas provide safe places for both you and Fido to run, play fetch, and hang out with friends. Or, indulge in a delicious meal with family and friends at The Clubhouse or The Boathouse Restaurants. Relish in live music, summer concerts, trivia nights, educational seminars, luncheons, holiday parties, happy hours, themed dinners, and more. If you want to chill out, head to The Boathouse on Lake Oconee or go to our Sanctuary pond at The Grove. Both are beautiful spots to have a picnic, read a book, and appreciate nature.
Don’t forget about the children. A country club is perfect for kids because it offers an environment outside of school where they can socialize and create close friendships. What’s more, a club can help kids learn how to respect, act, and behave around other kids and adults. Harbor Club caters to kids with events and activities like Junior golf, Breakfast with Santa, Easter egg hunts, Halloween Costume parties, golf cart parades, corn hole, comedians, magicians, and pool parties, just to name a few.
Whatever country club activities you enjoy most, our goal as a modern, Southern Living-Inspired Community is to create optimal environments that foster friendly gatherings, interactions, and celebrations. We’ve built a community with amenities and programs that spur those interactions year-round. Come see for yourself what a modern club lifestyle is like. Plan your visit to Harbor Club today.
