Isleworth did not start out as Isleworth. Instead, it started out as the most important citrus operation, maintained by the Chase Family. However, in 1986 golf legend Arnold Palmer discovered that this citrus operation had a different future. Palmer saw a potential for a world-class golf course and country club, which is where he came up with Isleworth. A New Era took over in 1993 where one of the most beautiful communities in the world was created. The Lewis Family took over to fulfill the communities vision by planting thousands of trees and flowers, installing a collection of significant sculptures and constructing exalted estates fostering the most impeccable arcutichture. In 2006 Isleworth hosted the Tavistock Cup to help put themselves on the map as a world-class golf course. This golf tournament hosted professional members of the community, and it’s sister club Lake Nona, the field saw athletes such as Tiger Woods, Justin Rose, Ernie Els, and Mark O’Meara. Following this golf tournament, there was a new standard of quality Isleworth had to uphold. In 2008 Financial Times recognized this community as “one of the most impressive line-ups of top-ranked golfer residents and athletes.” Residents were being welcomed from around the world. While this is a world-class golf course, they still care very much about their arts so in 2010 along the first and 10th tees the iconic sculpture knowns as Wall Street Charging Bull by Arturo di Modica was installed. You can find other famous pieces of artwork throughout the golf course and country club. With the history of Isleworth out of the way let’s talk about the current Isleworth.
