Ultimate South Florida Living: The Club at Ibis

Jack Nicklaus and Martin Hall connections set it apart from other area clubs.
The Club at Ibis' golf complex comprises three courses courtesy of the Nicklaus family.

When the time comes to scout out communities and clubs for a second or retirement home, what will you be looking for? Well-priced, ideally situated real estate? Great golf? A full list of off-the-course amenities? A strong sense of community with your fellow members?

The Club at Ibis prides itself on satisfying all these requirements for its more than 1,800 residents and more than 1,000 members. In the golf haven of West Palm Beach, where competition for seasonal and year-round members is fierce, The Club At Ibis sets itself apart with quality golf, a vibrant membership and much more.


The practice facility at the Club at Ibis is vast and state-of-the-art.

The Club at Ibis is home to 54 holes of golf courtesy of the Nicklaus family. The Legend Course, opened in 1990 and renovated in 2017, is a Jack Nicklaus Signature design. The Golden Bear has taken particular pride in molding this course over the years, visiting frequently to suggest and oversee the refinements that have turned it into one of South Florida's finest private golf courses.

The Heritage Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus II and opened in 1991, retains its own identity while still containing the shot values and pleasing aesthetics that make Nicklaus Design courses so popular. Named "The Most Women-Friendly Course In America" by Golf For Women, it holds wide-ranging appeal.

The Tradition Course, which opened in 2000, is a Steve Nicklaus design with a character all its own. With non-returning nines, it sends golfers on a rewarding journey through the southern portion of The Club at Ibis' expansive 1,900-acre property. The Tradition's greens feature interesting contours and sections that help make it a layout members love to play over and over again.

The clubs three courses don't tell the whole story of golf at The Club at Ibis, however. The 20-acre practice facility is one of the finest in South Florida, and is on the verge of a renovation project that will take it to a whole new level. This project includes improvements to the range itself as well as the construction of a new building that will serve as a clubfitting and instruction hub for members.

Speaking of instruction, The Club at Ibis is home to Martin Hall, one of the world's foremost teachers of golf. You may be familiar with the Golf Channel show "School of Golf," which Hall has hosted for several years. He also works with several PGA and LPGA Tour players as well as Club at Ibis members, and is a Revolution Golf faculty member. One of the most knowledgeable figures in the game, Hall has taught out of The Club at Ibis for more than 25 years.


The Club at Ibis features both relaxation- and fitness-oriented pools.

Golf represents just a fraction of the possibilities for members at The Club at Ibis. There is a world-class tennis program on offer, with 16 Har-Tru courts and a professional staff that includes former tennis touring pro and Olympic coach Jay Berger (Jay's son, Daniel Berger, is a PGA Tour winner). The club has also picked up on the pickleball craze, installing four courts.

Adjacent to the tennis center is a state-of-the-art fitness center with on-site physical therapy resources, and three pools - a resort-style social hub, a 25-meter lap pool and a kiddie pool - provide great aquatic access.

All this is centered around a newly-renovated, 80,000 square foot clubhouse, which is the center of social activity at the club. It is home to both fine and casual dining spaces as well as conference rooms that may be utilized by the dozens of social and cultural clubs-within-the-club. At every turn, friendly and knowledgeable staff members are on hand to help make pleasant days perfect.


The Club at Ibis features a number of attractive real estate options.

A deep commitment to service and world-class amenities helps give The Club at Ibis a different feel than many of its competitors. Residents and members love how friendly and unpretentious a place it is. Members hail from all walks of life, from retired school teachers to corporate executives and all backgrounds in between, and everyone feels free to express themselves and enjoy their common interests.

With almost 2,000 acres encompassing more than 1,800 homes across 33 neighborhoods - there are no gates in the interior of the community; members travel to visit friends with no barriers or restrictions - the real estate offerings at The Club at Ibis are as diverse as you will find at any golf community in the country. At press time, listings ranged from golf villas and townhomes under $200,000 to large single-family estate homes priced at more than $1.5 million, and dozens of opportunities in between. With membership, dues and HOA fees all falling within a reasonable range for the region, The Club at Ibis is a desirable, mature community that golfers love to call home.
