BallenIsles Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens has opened their new fitness center which cost $ 26 million. BallenIsles, one of the premier clubs in the area, was built in the 1970’s when land was not so precious and as such has a more leisurely feel inside the grounds than some of the more recent clubs.
The trend toward more updated fitness facilities though was in fact spurred on by these newer clubs such as Mirasol Country Club. BallenIsles is located where PGA Blvd. meets the Florida Turnpike and is across the street from Ray Floyd’s Old Palm Club, just east of Mirasol Country Club and PGA National Resort.
The Palm Beach Gardens & Jupiter area are replete with high end golf country clubs such as Admirals Cove, the Bear’s Club, Jupiter Hills and so on and so on.
Recently, Jonathan’s Landing in Jupiter near Admirals Cove underwent a major renovation of its fitness center and while touring the facility with a Board member was told this is the new standard and we all have to move with the times. Clubs everwhere are having to find new and innovative ways of attracting and retaining members. Especially since the cost to join many of these clubs runs around $ 150,000.
