Vero Beach Golf at Grand Harbor

The Harbor Course

When Pete Dye began to plan to design of the Harbor Course, his objective was to reflect the character of America's grand courses.

Those such as his renowned Ryder Cup course at Kiawah Island, South Carolina, have contributed so much to the honorable legacy of the game.

Many of the features of this traditions-inspired Grand Harbor course can be traced to the historic Scottish links style of tiered greens, undulating fairways, deep pot bunkers, and blind holes. A blend of exotic grasses in the roughs encourages the use of many clubs and the play of just as many shots. Adding an old-world flavor to the "look" of the course are mounds (reminscent of the Scottish dune courses), wooden walls, and giant landscaped sand bunkers.

The classic sculpture of the Harbor Course complements the River Course, creating a distinctive golfing experience for Grand Harbor members. One that not only represents, but pays homage to, the traditions of America's grand old golf clubs.

The River Course

The River Course is a testament to Joe Lee's special genius for uniting the game of golf with the natural environment.

Weaving seamlessly through the salt marshes, along the Intracoastal Waterway and around the residential islands, it creates a picturesque and well-balanced layout that respects the native landscape.

Round after round, the course poses every imaginable challenge to the seasoned player with a variety of target holes and natural hazards. Designed with striking water holes, the course requires thoughtful shot making from start to finish where every club can come into play.

The 14th hole has become Grand Harbor's signature hole, winning both national and international recognition. According to John Hopkins of the London Financial Times, "A run of four holes - the 12th, 13th, 14th, and 15th - are the equal of any four successive holes anywhere in the U.S."
