As the "gateway to the tropics," our climate lends itself to getting out and enjoying some fun in the sun all year round. For the sports lover, Indian River County has almost an embarrassment of riches. No matter where your interests lie, we've got something that's sure to appeal.
Love golf? So do we, and with over a dozen and a half courses located in Indian River County, it shows. A point of pride for us is Sandridge Golf Club, owned and operated by the county, and it is not to be missed. Come test your skills on one of our two challenging 18-hole courses that have earned us a reputation as one of the finest public golf destinations in the state. After playing the island green on the par 4 14th hole on the Lakes course, you'll see why Golf Digest has rated our club 4-1/2 stars!
Historic Dodgertown has been a draw to the area for decades. Home to the Dodger Spring Training for sixty years starting in 1948, it was the starting place for many pennant-winning teams and Hall of Fame players. These days, it serves as an all-inclusive facility for teams from all over to play, live and eat together in on-site villas that provide a one-of-kind, immersive training experience where the greats got their start. With ten playing fields and our new multi-purpose field, baseball, soccer, football and lacrosse teams can learn amidst the beauty and history of the area.
Whether you're passionate about tennis, wild about polo, crazy for jet skiing or just about anything in between, we're enjoying it in Indian River County. Come enjoy the fun with us!
