Golf: That's The Stuff Of Legends
BallenIsles Country Club continues to enhance its storied past. Originally developed as the home of the Professional Golfers’ Association of America, for many years it was the site of the PGA TOUR’s Qualifying School and hosted the game’s greatest players in the PGA Championship, World Cup, the PGA’s Senior Championship and numerous other golf classics.
The three Championship golf courses at BallenIsles, East, North and South were designed by two of the most highly-acclaimed golf course architects of the era: Dick Wilson and Joe Lee. Over the years, the courses have been enhanced with innovative and state-of-the-art updates so that each course plays at a championship level from the back tees and as a very playable course for those of all skill levels from more forward tees.
In 2008, Golf Inc. Magazine recognized our $9 million renovation to the East course as a finalist for its national “Renovation of the Year” award.
The North golf course undertook an extensive renovation in 2013 with a $5 million redesign by renowned golf course architect Kipp Schulties in 2013 and is absolutely beautiful.
The South course is perhaps the Member’s favorite at BallenIsles. An original nine-hole layout in 1964, it was expanded to a full 18 by Joe Lee in 1970 and in 2000 was completely remodeled by Gene Bates Golf Designs.
