A sports haven for baseball and golf enthusiasts on Florida’s eastern coast.

August 22, 2012

Burgeoning A-Rods can pick up tips during the spring training season in Port St. Lucie, when the New York Mets are in temporary residence. It all goes down at Digital Domain Park, which seats up to 7,000 and is only minutes from the PGA Village golf complex with its 54 holes. Join other like-minded fans over a beer and hot dog and take it all in.

PGA Village

Operated by the PGA, this complex is a golf lovers’ dream, with 54 holes of championship golf designed by Tom Fazio and Pete Dye, a 35-acre PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance, and even a museum dedicated to the sport.

Digital Domain Park

See the New York Mets baseball team practice at Digital Domain Park during February and March; there’s also a local minor-league team, the St. Lucie Mets, which plays from April on.

Mangrove Mattie's

Located right on the water on the barrier Hutchinson Island just north in Fort Pierce, the sprawling bi-level nautical restaurant has killer views of the ocean and a fish-heavy menu (try the coconut shrimp).

Dockside Harborlight Inn

The property has a fishing-themed setup that includes on-site barbecues to cook up fresh catches, and a raft of slips. Rooms are comfy, but unremarkable.
