The second part of our blog to visit some of the most glamorous all-inclusive sporting communities in America travels firstly to Utah and we spend time at the splendid Victory Ranch which has many delights for its residents.
Many sporting people travel to Utah to take advantage of the great skiing at Park City Ski resort. Victory Ranch is positioned just outside Park City and is an expansive five and a half thousand acre sporting community. As the name suggests the community offers splendid activities in a deliberately rustic environment to suit its position. The activities on offer are almost endless, and include a championship golf course designed by the legendary Rees Jones.
Victory Ranch takes full advantage of the magnificent countryside that surrounds it and residents can take full advantage of this by horseback riding and hiking around three thousand acres of back wilderness. Other nature activities include fishing on the Ranch’s own section of the Upper Provo River that cuts through five miles of Victory Ranch. Residents can also enjoy many other amenities, including a spa, skiing and a fitness center.
Our next special all-inclusive sporting community means a visit to Skidaway Island in Georgia. And the eight thousand or so residents of the island are among the wealthiest in the whole of America. It is not surprising therefore that the developers chose this spot to build such an exclusive locale known as The Landings. This rather prestigious gated community has access to four and a half thousand stunning coastal acres.
The Landings incorporated an unbelievable six quality eighteen-hole golf courses, with a list of other recreational activities as long as your arm. Residents who are not playing golf can enjoy fantastic coastal walks, forty miles of cycle tracks, two athletic tracks, and because of its coastal location there are two marinas for the mooring of resident’s luxury yachts.
Due to its location, The Landings also offers fantastic water sports such as canoeing, kayaking, fishing, sailing, and with the local marshes close at hand those residents who fancy a spot of twitching can also enjoy their hobby with many sea birds nesting on the marshes. The social life at The Landings matches the sporting activity in terms of number and variety. There are four individual club houses that offer five restaurants plus a fitness center and a spa for a spot of relaxation after a busy day enjoying your favorite sporting activities.
The Amelia Island Plantation
Our final all-inclusive sporting community destination is The Amelia Island Plantation. The community is based on the Atlantic coast of Florida and this private luxury resort is an example of the best of modern sporting communities. The resort is surrounded by a maritime forest and marshlands that are full of local birds, flora and fauna. Beach club membership comes complementary when you join this exclusive community, and residents have access to a plethora of sporting activities that include four stunning golf courses.
There are also over twenty tennis courts, great fishing trips, bird watching, kayaking, various swimming pools, a luxury spa and fitness center and a whole district of up-market shops and restaurants. The Amelia Island Plantation ends our journey to see some of America’s stunning new all-inclusive sporting communities and displays just how popular these communities are now becoming.
