Loblolly in Hobe Sound is a premier golf and waterfront community that is comprised of two distinct neighborhoods: Loblolly Pines and Loblolly Bay and Yacht Club. Originally founded by a group of young couples who aspired to live in a like-minded, wellness-focused community, Loblolly is a family centered community that is posh but unpretentious. As such, the character and charm of Loblolly continues to draw families of all ages to the Treasure Coast. Membership is not required, but many residents chose to belong to the community in which they reside and take full advantage of its amenities. Located along the Intracoastal Waterway, Loblolly Bay features a full service marina, dockage for yachts up to 100-feet, boat launch to the beach, resort-style swimming pools, boardwalks, tennis courts, and dining options. Here, residents and members enjoy saltwater fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, paddleboarding, and boat cruising. On the other side of the development, Loblolly Pine features a spectacular, championship golf course designed by legendary Pete Dye. The rolling terrain, meandering fairways, and flowing greens lend for mentally and physically challenging play. In fact, this course is frequently recognized as one of Florida’s finest because of its unique layout. Other amenities at Loblolly Pine include the classic clubhouse, delectable dining options, state-of-the-art fitness center, full service salon and spa, two playgrounds, basketball courts, ten Har-Tru tennis courts, recreational field, a resort-style swimming pool, and a lap and leisure swimming pool.
Homes for sale in Loblolly Pines generally range in price from $1.2 million to around $2.5 million for a custom, single family estate.
