Woven into the tropical fabric of Palm Beach Gardens is a private club community unlike any other in the country. BallenIsles simply resonates with world-class facilities, from three championship golf courses and a tennis facility ranked #1 in the country by the USTA, to an abundance of other amenities and it’s about to get even better. Members recently approved a $35 million clubhouse renovation project which will be the first major upgrade of the Clubhouse facility in more than a decade.
The majority vote for the sweeping architectural and re-design project is the culmination of a multi-year evaluation process, initiated and overseen by the Club's Board of Directors. It included an extensive member survey, independent focus groups, and workshops led by construction and interior design committees.
"Few country clubs offer members such an historic connection to golf and we're pleased that the members have given their unequivocal approval for the renovation project which will add over 30,000 square feet to the clubhouse. It ensures that we will continue to raise the bar as a club that is looking to the future while still upholding the rich legacy of BallenIsles," said BallenIsles General Manager and Chief Operating Officer, Chris Card.
All are enhanced by our warm and friendly social environment. Built around the interests of its diverse members, BallenIsles offers a rich list of "Clubs-within-the-Club" activities, where members can share common interests with small, more intimate groups. The relaxing yet active social ambiance is one of the main reasons why so many members enjoy calling BallenIsles their home.
The 72,000 square-foot Clubhouse will be expanded to feature a grand redesigned 19th Hole on the Clubhouse Terrace offering breathtaking views of the East Golf Course, where Nicklaus and many other many golf legends originally qualified for the PGA Tour.
From the Club's iconic Harry's Bar to a larger Main Dining Room, to a dedicated Fine Dining Room, and expansive kitchens, the architectural redesign and renovation will also add to members' enjoyment of a wide variety of dining and social experiences. The expansive clubhouse renovation will also include a new lobby lounge with vaulted ceilings. The entire project will be financed without an assessment to the membership and is expected to be completed in eighteen months.
BallenIsles is also heralded for their unwavering commitment to wellness and fitness with its $26 million state-of-the-art Sports Complex that is testimony to the Club's extraordinary commitment to a healthy member lifestyle. For more information visit www.BallenIsles.org.
