Old Riomar Country Club – A Timeless Treasure
Old Riomar began its legacy in 1919, when course designer Herbert Strong rendered the first nine holes along the Atlantic Ocean. At the time, the barrier island was completely desolate. Vero Beach was yet to become a city and there was no electricity on the barrier island. The golf course was commissioned simply to fill a void and became the only golf club between West Palm Beach and Daytona. Rio, meaning ‘river’, and Mar, meaning ‘sea’, combine like the governing bodies of water along the barrier island’s borders to pay homage to it’s beautiful location. The Old Riomar Club Homes enjoyed early fandom and popularity among golfers looking to beat the crowds. Even President-elect Warren Harding enjoyed a visit in 1921 to play a few rounds and relax in the ocean.
Those visiting Old Riomar Club Homes and golf course enjoy a warm welcome from the ocean as Riomar has more holes on the ocean than any other club in Florida – seven to be exact. While Riomar has maintained its commitment to legacy, it recently enjoyed a re-design by Tommy Fazio II. Fazio observed Riomar’s classic touches resolving to fine-tune select pieces, not overhaul it entirely. Greens and tees were raised to give golfers a better view of course’s ocean backdrop and subtle design touches were added to keep the course looking crisp.
