Upon entering the gorgeous gates into BallenIsles, residents are warmly welcomed by a security guard, who is on-duty 24-hours a day. Most likely the first point of interest after passing through the gates is the tropical foliage, which includes large Fica trees that create a canopy over the streets; colorful flora that decorates the medians; and bright Bermuda grass that flanks the sidewalks and covers the community lawn areas. The focus on meticulously-maintained landscape invites residents to spend more time outdoors, socialize with neighbors, and enjoy all the country club amenities.
Amenities at BallenIsles Country Club include three championship golf courses, Sports Complex, Tennis Facility and Lounge, casual to fine dining options, walking trails, playgrounds, resort-style swimming pool, and junior Olympic-size lap pool. For golf aficionados, the three courses--all of which are located within the community itself--each provide enjoyable play for both leisure and competitive players. Originally designed by Dick Wilson and Joe Lee and later remodeled by Gene Bates Golf Design, the fastidious fairways and rolling terrain are seamlessly married with Florida’s natural beauty. The results are golf courses that challenge and reward the mental aspect of the game as much as the physical. The practice facility at BallenIsles includes two driving ranges, chipping bunkers, putting greens, professional instruction, and a golf shop. As an added bonus, members are associated with the Troon Prive program, which means they receive reciprocal golf privileges at other distinguished clubs around the world.
Tennis enthusiasts are thrilled to have the nation’s number 1 ranked tennis facility right in their own backyard. The facility features stadium-style seating for 500 people, a skybox, two hard courts, 22 Har-Tru clay courts, and a premier pro shop. Members are privy to tennis training from well-known professional instructors and club tournaments, clinics, and exhibitions are held during season. Inside the 62,000 square foot Sports Complex, members enjoy full salon and spa services, state-of-the art exercise room, fitness classes, well-appointed locker rooms, resort-style pool, children’s pool, game room, and a delicious snack and drink bar.
The grand clubhouse resembles an expansive estate, with an inviting interior that brings members together for social activities, seasonal events, and daily dinners. The clubhouse has five dining establishments: The Main Dining Room, The Grille Room, Bistro 105, Harry’s Bar, and the 19th Hole. These restaurants range from a casual, sports bar ambiance to an upscale, elegant experience. The clubhouse also has social rooms for various clubs within the club such as art, literature, photography, gardening, and the like.
Unlike other upscale country clubs, BallenIsles is a kid-friendly neighborhood. In fact, the neighborhood prides itself on kid-focused activities, games, and sport clinics throughout the year.
