Featured in an episode of the Golf Channel?s The Haney Project, Palm Beach Par 3?s acclaimed layout blankets the breezy space right between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intercoastal Waterway. Originally designed in 1961 by famed course architect Joe Lee, the course received a face-lift from Hall of Famer Raymond Floyd in 2009, adding drama to a water-kissed terrain that has hosted the LPGA Pro-Am and welcomed players of the likes of George Clooney, Cameron Diaz, and the Hamburglar. Stitched by the curvy trunks of vibrant palm trees, the course?s saltwater- and drought-resilient paspalum grass helps it thrive in its seashore location. With the longest hole measuring in at 196 yards, Palm Beach Par 3 provides ample opportunities for players to snag a coveted hole in one.

Established in 1978, the executive course at Lone Pine Golf Club gives golfers of every skill level the chance to play a quick and exciting round. Players find birdies attainable throughout the course as they take aim at the overall par of 62. Groups typically take between 2.5 and 3 hours to traverse the short, easily walkable course, allowing golfers to conserve energy without shaving their heads to reduce drag. Visitors who would like to squeeze in some practice can launch balls skyward from grass tees at the club's practice facility, and hone short strokes on its putting and chipping green.Course at a Glance:
Sculpted on a 28-acre estuary between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, Jupiter Dunes Golf Club presents a short par 3 course that features prominent water hazards that come into play on 12 holes. Coastal trade winds routinely knock approach shots off course on their way onto small paspalum greens, a challenge only mitigated by careful shot selection or digging wind-free fairway tunnels. Even with these obstacles, the course's truncated length lets beginners make an enjoyable foray into the game, and more experienced players can work on short game acumen.
Jupiter Dunes’ resident golf pro Jeff Leishman strives to make golf a pleasant pursuit for all players, including juniors. Jeff creates an instructional regimen that best fits each player, helping adults to lower their handicaps during lessons and showing juniors how to make a golf-cart booby trap at summer camps for kids aged 6–14.
