IRCC Named to Top 20 Golf Communities List

Indian River Colony Club in Viera has culture, amenities that set it apart

 

(VIERA, FL) June 1, 2018 – Ever wondered what’s behind the walls at Indian River Colony Club in Viera?  Just one of the Top 20 Golf Communities in North America, according to the editors of GolfCourseHome.com, a leading online real estate website for U.S. golf properties.  Editors acknowledge that golf is no longer an all-encompassing pastime, noting that, “progressive country club communities have pushed beyond golf to augment their community experience to enrich residents with a wide variety of soul-satisfying activities that match their passions and interests.”  Eight amenity categories differentiated the Top 20 Golf Communities winners.  The 55+ neighborhood of predominantly military retirees was recognized for their Indian River Colony Club Foundation, a not-for-profit entity designed to accommodate the community’s commitment to charitable giving.  Also known as “The Place Patriots Call Home,” 453-acre Indian River Colony Club features a one-of-a-kind private par 72 golf course with 18 challenging holes nestled among natural preserves, lakefront and golf course homes. Each hole is shaped around a scenic lake or pond and impeccably maintained by a professional, full-time staff.  Features include a Pro Shop, aqua driving range, two putting greens and practice bunkers. For more information, call 321-255-6000 or visit www.IndianRiverColonyclub.com/golf.

 

President of the 120-member Men’s Golf Association at Indian River Colony Club, Ed Baker points out the value of camaraderie at the golf community.

 

“The purpose of the Association is to promote sportsmanship, fellowship and competition in amateur golf,” said Baker. We participate in organized play at least twice weekly, usually with foursomes in friendly competition with other foursomes. In addition to golf, we enjoy the 19th Hole following play and meet as a group for lunch monthly. Our golfers have varying skill levels and the camaraderie experienced by the membership is unsurpassed anywhere.”

 

A Women’s Golf Association at Indian River Colony also enjoys an enthusiastic membership.

 

For non-golfers, IRCC boasts a wide array of debt-free amenities, including three Har-Tru tennis courts, a heated 3000 sq. ft. swimming pool with lap lanes, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a country club serving casual to gourmet cuisine and on-site Colony Hall for parties, theater, dancing and more.  The community has over 40 activity groups and clubs, catering to the individual interests of its members.

 

Viera’s very first neighborhood, Indian River Colony Club is known as “The Place Patriots Call Home.”  A haven for military retirees, the par-72 private golf course community has a patriotic culture and country club amenities for active adults aged 55 and over.

About Indian River Colony Club –  Viera’s very first neighborhood, Indian River Colony Club was originally conceived as a retirement destination for military retirees. IRCC began to take shape in 1986, its vision to create a private country club-like environment for members.  Membership has now expanded to include non-military personnel who want the energetic, patriotic lifestyle cultivated by three decades of members. Still predominantly a haven for military veterans, IRCC maintains a culture centered on service to others. IRCC is a gated golf course community of nearly 800 homes on 453 acres in Viera, owned entirely by its membership. “The Place Patriots Call Home” enjoys 24-hour gated security, a generous maintenance package and a full complement of newly renovated and 100% debt-free country club amenities for active adults aged 55 and over, including an 18-hole, par-72 private golf course.  The patriotic neighborhood was named one of the 2018 Top 20 Golf Communities in North America by Golf Course Home Network.
