Now is the Time to Become a Member at Ibis Golf & Country Club

July 31st, 2016

Ibis Golf & Country Club has been undergoing numerous improvements over the last couple of years, including the opening of a brand-new clubhouse. Ibis’ Board of Directions has been busy making investments in golf, sports, social, and technology infrastructure. Other planned improvements include tennis viewing area upgrades, hydration station enhancements, the addition of 4 pickleball courts, and refurbishment of golf course greenside bunkers. Future investments funded by the Club Fund may include enhanced or expanded services and programs for golf, tennis, fitness, social, or dining facilities. Demand is quite strong for the new Club at Ibis, yet even with all the new changes, membership fees have remained unchanged since 2005! Ibis is by far one of the best values in the marketplace and it is a great time to finalize the purchase of a new home while dues are still at record lows.

July 31st, 2016

As a Tequesta homeowner, resident, and Realtor, I find it extremely important to know what it going on in my community and the surrounding area and neighborhoods. As you know, the news only mentions and reports on limited topics and areas.

There is a new online social community network called This website allows homeowners to connect with their community and nearby surrounding communities in an effort to communicate and relay information about local events, services, safety, concerns, and anything in general.

It only takes one person to start up this website for their own community. Just visit, create an account, and put in your address. If someone in your community has already set it up, then you can easily join just by verifying your information. Otherwise, you can become the “Lead” for your community and start up the website. There is no money involved and anyone can invite their neighbors to join, either by email, postcards (which sends out for free), and/or by word of mouth.

This is a great tool for staying informed and connected. Give it a try!
