Founded in 1992, The Spanish American Club, Inc. is the oldest social, civic, sport and benevolence organization in the Treasure Coast. The club has become quite influential in the Treasure Coast area, playing a key role, for instance, in the scholarship program for Hispanic students from Martin and St. Lucie counties.

The club continued a 24-year tradition by distributing food baskets to underprivileged families for Thanksgiving and collecting holiday gift bags to needy children in the area.

Some members bowl every Monday at 6:00 P.M. at the Saint Lucie Lanes while others play golf every Wednesday at 10:00 A.M. at The Saints Golf Club. Others play dominoes every Wednesday at the St. Lucie Lanes at 6:00 P.M.
