Golf

What makes Ibis the finest golf experience in the Palm Beaches?

World-class golf is at the very center of the Ibis experience.

  • The Courses
    • Ibis is the world's only private country club community with three outstanding Nicklaus family-designed Courses - The Legend by Jack Nicklaus, The Heritage, by Jack Nicklaus II, and The Tradition by Steve Nicklaus.

      The Legend Course

      Designer: Jack Nicklaus

      In February 1991, Jack Nicklaus launched a perfect ceremonial first tee shot down the center of the No. 1 fairway…and a Legend was born. The Legend is a Jack Nicklaus design that’s been described as his “masterpiece,” and it’s a favorite of our West Palm Beach country club members, who enjoy playing on the same course that tested the pros as the site of The National Senior Club Professional Championship and the LPGA’s Office Depot Tournament. Golfweek magazine has named the Legend one of the country’s “Most Distinctive Courses.” But, make no mistake – it’s a challenge that you’ll ultimately find satisfying.

      The Heritage Course

      Designer: Jack Nicklaus II

      When Jack Nicklaus II designed this course, he must have had the word “fun” in mind. That’s not to say it doesn’t challenge you the way a Nicklaus course should. The difference is that this course, named the “Most Women-Friendly in America” by Golf for Women magazine, was built to give you a fair test of your golf skills, no matter what level your game has reached.

      While it’s a friendly course, the Heritage is no pushover. The Heritage is also the course where you’ll play a fair share of club tournaments, weekly events, member-guests, or just your regular foursome. When it opened in the fall of 1991, Golf Digest named the Heritage one of the “Top 20 New Private Courses in America.”

      The Tradition Course

      Designer: Steve Nicklaus

      For our third course, completed in 2001, the Nicklaus design team borrowed from some of the game of golf’s original layouts. Think open fairways, smaller greens, and Scottish brogues and you’ll have a pretty good idea of the old-world flavor of the Tradition. Designer Steve Nicklaus has laid out a charming links-style course in the tradition of the storied fairways of the British Isles …nine hole “outward” and nine holes “inward” back to the Clubhouse.

  • The Facilities
    • Golf defines The Ibis Experience, and the practice facilities are world-class. The Club at Ibis practice tee-box covers 144,000 square feet. Its double-sided driving range is covered in Seashore Paspalum to provide a superior hitting surface. Three short game areas and a Golf Equipment Fitting Studio anchor the corners of the range. The Fitting Studio features equipment from all of the major manufacturers and showcases the latest technology in fitting equipment from Trackman and SAM Putting Lab. The Studio contains both covered indoor and outdoor hitting bays and is manned by Ibis instructional staff.

With a variety of formats, this association creates a competitive environment with exciting events. The IMGA will also help our members create new friendships within our club family.

      ILGA-18
      Our Ibis Ladies' Golf Association (ILGA) 18-holers play on select Thursdays throughout the season with various formats. This association begins with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start and concludes each event with a wonderful lunch and awards. The ILGA focuses on competition and camaraderie. All ILGA members are required to have a USGA-established handicap to be eligible for prizes.

      ILGA-9
      In order to create growth in the game, Ibis has created this wonderful Ibis Ladies' Golf Association (ILGA) 9-hole group to introduce our ladies to the game of golf. Events are hosted on select Mondays and Thursdays throughout the season. This relaxed group of ladies creates a welcoming environment for all participants with focus on having fun and meeting new friends. All ladies are required to have a USGA-established, 9-hole handicap to compete within the association. 

      COUPLES
      We have several couples’ tournaments throughout the season for our Ibis membership. The Couples’ Association hosts events on Sundays throughout the season and creates fun formats that allow our members to enjoy a day of golf with friends as well as create an informal competitive event. In order to participate in all of our Ibis Couples’ events, all participants must have an established USGA handicap.

      GRFPT 
      If you are just getting introduced to the game of golf, the Get Ready for Prime Time (GRFPT) group is looking forward to having you join their association. This association plays nine holes on select Monday afternoons during the season. Our professional staff covers all the basic fundamentals of the game with the group in a non-competitive environment. We also help educate these new golfers to the basic rules of the game and proper etiquette that will allow our new golfers to enjoy the game of golf for a lifetime.

      SUMMER LEAGUES

      During the summer months, Ibis members are invited to participate in several leagues in the South Florida area. The Men’s & Ladies' North Shore Leagues consist of golfers in all age categories playing in a head-to-head match play contest against other local clubs. Several clubs participate in these weekly matches.  

      Our numerous golf leagues and activities will keep you active all year round!
