PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., — BallenIsles, the prestigious country club highly regarded as a unique, private residential community with a distinguished history and home to some of the world’s top professional athletes, has retained NewsMark Public Relations for strategic outreach.
“There are extraordinary stories here, not least of which are how sound management practices by Troon Golf, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing and the Club’s Executive Board are redefining the traditions of America’s great private clubs at BallenIsles,” NewsMark Public Relations CEO Mark Hopkinson said.
“There’s a reason that national tennis tournaments, documentary film makers like HBO and sports network television producers like ESPN look to BallenIsles as the perfect backdrop for capturing a unique and distinctive lifestyle. We’re pleased to have been tasked with developing the stories around these other innovative areas at this splendid club,” Hopkinson noted.
Whether it’s the $9 million redesigned East Course by award winning golf course architect Keith Foster, the North Course, designed by Joe Lee, or the South Course, redesigned by Gene Bates, members enjoy the exceptional choice of playing at three distinct courses at BallenIsles. “Golf courses that are rich with history of championships by Jack Nicklaus and Julius Boros, and where many golf legends originally qualified for the PGA Tour,” Hopkinson added.
BallenIsles has also heralded a new standard of wellness and fitness with the opening of a $26 million state-of-the-art Sports Complex that is testimony to the Club’s extraordinary commitment to a healthy member lifestyle. Set on some 62,000 square feet amidst a tropical oasis of 1,300 acres, the new Sports Complex is adjacent to a world class 22-court tennis complex complete with an exhibition tennis court and stadium seating.
More than 400 of the Club’s members who actively play the game, enjoy an annual tennis calendar packed, year round, with USTA Leagues, Tri-level Leagues, Junior Team Tennis Programs, USTA Satellite Events and ITF tournaments. The latest in exercise suites include a dedicated Pilates studio, aerobics and spinning studio, a luxurious full-service spa, hair and nail salon, relaxation lounges, private massage rooms, saunas, steam rooms, a pro shop, and Bistro 105, a casually elegant restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining. “NewsMark Public Relations presented us with an impressive record of success and a very clear understanding of our requirements,” said Derrick Barnett, General Manager of BallenIsles Country Club. Although restricted to members and their guests, BallenIsles’ exceptional facilities have a distinguished history as the choice of many professional athletes for both practice and competition. These include members, Venus and Serena Williams and the Senior PGA Tour’s major success story, Bruce Fleisher. For more information visit http://www.BallenIsles.org
