Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. June 24, 2013 BallenIsles Country Club has earned another award of distinction for dedication and service to its Members. This time it’s the Distinguished Emerald Club Award from the editors of BoardRoom magazine.

“Congratulations on your award and we are pleased and proud to call you a Distinguished Emerald Club!” BoardRoom magazine Co-founder, Keith Jarrett wrote in his announcement of the prestigious award to BallenIsles General Manager Derrick Barnett.

“To be a Distinguished Emerald Club, a club must provide a level of Member Experience attained by only the finest clubs in the world,” BoardRoom magazine notes in its description of the award. “The distinction between a Distinguished Club and a Distinguished Emerald Club is nuanced yet thoroughly recognizable, for it is based on the most important of all intangible qualities. Reputation. Reverence. Admiration. Brand Equity. Fame. Whatever you call it, it is that “X” factor that separates two clubs that both provide superlative Member Experience, but where one is a great club, while the other is the most prestigious of memberships.” the magazine writes.
