Martin County is already known as a golfer’s dream destination, but 2021 ushered in a new era for the region when Sailfish Sands officially opened in October. The new attraction replaced the former Martin County Golf Course, and following a complete redesign, brought a brand-new golfing experience to the lovers of this traditional sport. With a championship 18-hole course and Florida’s very first reversible 9-hole course, Sailfish Sands is definitely out of the ordinary – not to mention the full-length grass driving range powered by Toptracer Range (the same technology used on televised golf tournaments to track the shots of the game’s best players. But coming in 2022, Sailfish Sands will also debut a brand-new building with 20 covered hitting bays where guests can compete against friends playing fun games and virtual courses on interactive game screens. The golf course will also unveil their new Sailfish Sands Clubhouse, which will offer an extensive menu in the fully equipped restaurant as well as a sleek bar pouring top shelf tipples.

Looking to break a sweat? Then plan to swing by All-Outdoors Fitness, Stuart’s first and only outdoor fitness studio! Their mission was to create a one-of-a-kind outdoor space where workout enthusiasts (who also happen to love the great outdoors) could successfully train together. The fun concept also builds on the idea that we could all benefit from spending more time outside surrounded by Mother Nature. Founded by local athlete Sarah Wickstrom, visitors can sign up for a range of small-group classes, with options like “Strength & Stability,” “Speed & Agility,” and the “3S Workout” (which combines strength, speed, and skill). For a change of scenery, check out their “Outdoor Challenges” class, which will take place on Saturday mornings at various outdoor locations throughout Stuart. The first class takes place January 17.

Martin County visitors will soon have another place to wet their whistle. Stuart Brewery & Distillery is slated in early 2022 (they’re aiming for February, although an exact date has yet to be announced). The upcoming brewery-distillery combination is the marriage of award-winning brew master Ford Pearson (making his triumphant return to South Florida) and celebrated distiller Jeff Mackay, all the way from San Diego, CA. Visitors can look forward to creative beers like Mango Milkshake IPA (with notes of vanilla and organic mango); Salted Caramel Russian Imperial (with a hint of coconut); and Raspberry Berliner (made using fermented organic raspberries). On the spirit side, guests can expect bold flavors such as Carolina Reaper Pepper Vodka and Coffee Infused Whiskey. It is expected to be folded into the Treasure Coast Wine and Ale Trail and represent Martin County along with Ocean Republic Brewing Company and the Hani Honey Company (also located in Stuart).
