Ibis is #1 in Palm Beach County - Two Years in Row!
For the second consecutive year, The Club at Ibis has been voted the Best Country Club in Palm Beach County during the Palm Beach Post’s “Best of Palm Beach County” awards. This year the Club at Ibis also won for the Best Golf Course.
That’s two major accolades for The Club at Ibis in a county often referred to as “the golf capital of the world.”
Distinguished Club, Elite Status
The Club is very pleased to announce that it has been awarded the designation of a Distinguished Club for the sixth year in a row, as determined by the annual Distinguished Clubs award program conducted by BoardRoom magazine, one of the most respected trade publications serving private clubs. This year we maintained our special recognition, giving Ibis the "Elite" designation, after meeting additional criteria, including being viewed as in the top echelons of local and regional reputation and recognition.
For fine private clubs that operate at the highest standards, BoardRoom magazine's entirely merit-based Distinguished Clubs award program uses a club-specific rating system that recognizes the club, its management, and its staff based on a proprietary criteria and evaluation process that distills and measures a club's Member Experience. As such, the rating system used by Distinguished Clubs is different from any that has come before, and with it, the private club industry now has the means to identify the top private clubs based on the most important aspect: Member Experience.
As defined by Distinguished Clubs, "Member Experience" is that special combination of "Qualities" that a private club provides its members. It is not just the quality of service, or of the facilities, or of the product provided, it is also the quality of the staff and of the management, as well as the overall club governance they deliver.
Platinum Club of America
The Club at Ibis is proud to announce that it has once again been recognized as a Platinum Club of America, as determined by Club Leaders Forum, the preeminent consulting source in the private club industry.
"The Club's Board, management and staff are thrilled with this announcement. Being named a Platinum Club is the most respected recognition in private club excellence," said General Manager/COO Stephen LoGiudice. "We are constantly challenging ourselves on how we can improve our Member experience."
Established in 1997, Platinum Clubs of America recognizes the top 5% of private clubs in the nation, as elected by Club Managers, Presidents, and Owners, using criteria approved by its Advisory Board, which is comprised of 15 Club Managers from some of the most respected private clubs in America. Platinum Club status is awarded to clubs in five categories: Country, Golf, City, Athletic, and Yacht Clubs. The Club at Ibis was recognized as #56 out of the top 150 private country clubs in the nation and selected among criteria such as universal recognition, excellence in amenities and facilities, governance and prudent fiscal management, and The Member's overall experience.
This announcement comes on the heels of Ibis being named a Distinguished Club with Elite Status from BoardRoom Magazine.
Voters are asked to consider the Platinum Club selection criteria when casting their votes, and points are awarded for rankings. The selection criteria, as approved by the Advisory Board, is:
1. The Club’s universal recognition.
2. The Club’s excellence in amenities and facilities.
3. The Club’s caliber of staff and professional service levels.
4. The Club’s quality of membership.
5. The Club’s governance and prudent fiscal management.
6. The Club’s ability to adapt to changing times.
7. The Member’s overall experience.
