Ibis Country Club Real Estate
When I am out helping my clients buy and sell homes, one community that cannot be overlooked is Ibis. Ibis country club is a golf community located in Palm Beach County, Florida that is bordered by the Grassy Waters Nature Preserve. So, while all the amenities of the Palm Beaches are within easy reach of Ibis residents, the club remains sheltered by the breathtaking, natural, and untouched surroundings of the park.
Ibis is a country club community whose year round residents are proud to call it their home. The Ibis Golf and Country Club is gated and guarded 24/7. Patrols are present to ensure members’ safety, and are Emergency Medical Technician certified so they can assist with medical needs. The community patrol staff have also passed Emergency Response Guide and National Incident Management System (NIMS) training to ensure disaster preparedness.
Residents of this Palm Beach golf and country club community live in gorgeously designed homes. There are 33 different neighborhoods, featuring a unique collection of Mediterranean and Florida-contemporary villas and single-family homes. Costs range from $350,000 to more than $2 million. The homes are regulated by the Property Owners Association. Ibis country club community residents can participate in board and committee elections and help to keep the community running well. Ibis is a huge family of people who share their expectations, lifestyle choices and appreciate luxury country club living.
The Ibis golf and country club community is very well taken care of and residents must purchase any of the available country club memberships: Premier Golf, Signature Sports, Tennis, or Social Dining.
The three championship golf courses at Ibis attract golfers from all around the world. The Legend is an 18 hole, par 72 course and was designed by Jack Nicklaus in February 1991. This course is his masterpiece and follows his favorite style of angled greens and risk-reward hole design. The first shot was made by Nicklaus himself and the course started gaining popularity immediately after opening. It hosted The National Senior Club Professional Championship and the LPGA’s Office Depot Tournament. In 2003 the course was renovated to bring even more challenge and reward to players.
The Heritage is also an 18 hole, par 72 course that was designed by Jack Nicklaus. This one served the goal of being an enjoyable course for golfers of all skill levels. The multiple tees give a unique opportunity for whole families to enjoy the game together. The course was rebuilt in 2004 and all the grassy areas were renewed. The Heritage was named one of the “Top 20 New Private Courses in America” by Golf Digest right after its opening, and was named the “Most Women-Friendly Course in America” by Golf for Women Magazine.
The Tradition is the third of the courses at Ibis and was designed by Steve Nicklaus in 2001. Open fairways, smaller greens, links-style and Scottish brogues are the highlights of this course. The 18 hole, par 72 course gives large, open driving areas to the players. The course was rebuilt in 2006. There are always top professionals on staff to work with any member looking to improve his or her golf techniques.
