  • History
    • 1964 – 1973
      PGA National Golf Club – In 1963, legendary Florida developer John D. MacArthur and the PGA of America teamed up with golf course architects Dick Wilson and Joe Lee to design a championship-caliber golf facility. Over the next ten years, BallenIsles, then called PGA National Golf Club hosted numerous major tournaments like the PGA Championship and PGA Seniors Championship and was home for the Professional Golfers’ Association of America. The Club also was the playing site for the original PGA TOUR Qualifying School and held the inaugural PGA Merchandise Show.

      1973 – 1988
      JDM Country Club – When the MacArthur/PGA of America agreement expired in 1973, the Club was renamed the JDM Country Club for John D. MacArthur. For the next 15 years, the prestigious local country club hosted many celebrities and professional golfers and staged many events on the three golf courses on the property.

      1988 – Present
      BallenIsles Country Club – In 1988, the three golf courses and surrounding property were sold by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and renamed BallenIsles Country Club. A multi-year and multimillion dollar plan to develop a private country club community was unveiled. Since the early 2000’s, BallenIsles Country Club has been consistently ranked as one of the Top 100 Clubs in America.

  • Awards
    • We are proud to announce that BallenIsles Country Club is being honored, once again, with the Boardroom Magazine, Distinguished Club Award.
