Solid Florida community golf

Joe Lee was one of Florida's most prolific architects, leaving dozens of designs across the state through the 1960s, 70s and 80s. He collaborated with mentor Dick Wilson at BallenIsles (originally PGA National), and the East Course exhibits the hallmarks of the postwar school of design: runway-like tee boxes, straightforward challenges and well-bunkered greens. Few holes at the East Course will etch themselves forever in your memory, but your game will be thoroughly tested, and the long par-4 18th stands out with its elevated green on the far edge of a lagoon. Other solid tests include the shortish par-4 9th and the reachable par-5 12th.

New and Improved

A major renovation of this private course has made this the most interesting layout of the three 18 hole Ballenisles courses. The North course winds along beautiful lakes and natural preserves. You better have a good bunker game to play this course as sand traps are strategically placed in fairways and around every green. Still generous fairways and true greens make this a somewhat challenging but fair test of golf.
