Public Golf Courses 

Abacoa Golf Club 

With 14 of 18 holes surrounded by water, you are bound to make a splash on this course! Besides the gorgeous wedding and banquet venue, the Abacoa course has real elevation changes to boost your game, different than many of the other Florida courses. The club hosts several golf clinics at the learning center where you can learn from PGA professionals. Ladies can join the award-winning Chip-n-Sip to learn more about the game of golf while socializing and drinking a bit of wine.  

The Golf Club of Jupiter 

For over 60 years The Golf Club of Jupiter has been offering rounds of golf to players of any skill level. Besides the normal private and group lessons, Jupiter has a ladies clinic as well as a junior summer camp. The unique driving range equipped with special targets should get you warmed up for a good game. After your round, recharge at the 19th hole (The Creek Pub and Grill) any day of the week for full food and beverage service. Visit on a Saturday night to enjoy prime rib night!  

 Jupiter Dunes 

Jupiter Dunes aims to remove the heavy price tag, lengthy play time and overall frustration from the game of golf. Here you can play an affordable round of golf in about two and a half hours. Situated on one of Jupiter’s natural estuaries, take in the gorgeous views of the ocean and enjoy the breeze as you improve your game. The club hosts one of the largest ladies’ leagues in the country! During peak season about 80 ladies tee up every week. For more of a sociable round, join the Bandits! They play tournaments every week throughout the year except during the busy season. Both newcomers and golf lovers can learn a thing or two from the PGA pro lesson program.

 North Palm Beach Country Club 

Featuring one of the only two municipal golf courses designed by the golden bear himself, the Jack Nicklaus signature course is challenging yet enjoyable to play. According to Nicklaus, “What’s on that ground has my expression of what should be on that ground.” The country club was built in 1963 but was demolished and redesigned in 2018, along with the pool, to give residents a gathering place with more of a community feel. Play a round along the beautiful Intercostal Waterway or grab some feel-good food from Farmer’s Table Restaurant. Their kitchen practices environmentally friendly cooking methods, and any chemical, hormone, pesticide, or antibiotics are ever found in their proteins.

 Private Golf Courses (membership or invite only) 

The Bear’s Club 

Founded in 1999 by Jack Nicklaus and his wife Barbra, the collection of par 5 holes at The Bear’s Club are meant to feel like a world-class golf experience. According to Nicklaus Design, the club isn’t intended to be a tournament course but a tribute to Jack’s golf legacy. About three dozen elite pro golfers are members of Bear’s Club, and its popularity helped inspire the design behind the high-end restaurant 1000 North. Don’t forget to visit certified master chef Brain Sode from the Culinary Institute of America and dazzle your tastebuds before you leave!

 Trump National Golf Club 

The facilities at Trump National can’t compare to anywhere else in the area. Besides the award-winning, Jack Nicklaus designed 18-hole course, the golf club boasts a family-oriented ambiance. On-site you can find a fully equipped golf shop, fitness and mental golf instructional sessions, or True Spec custom golf club fittings. This course was ranked by Golf Digest as one of the best in Florida thanks to its special grass, grown to last in the local tropical climate.

 Jonathan’s Landing Golf Club 

With three uniquely challenging 18-hole courses to choose from, Jonathan’s Landing was designed to include golf programs for both competitive and social players. Famous golf course architect Tom Fazio designed two of the courses. The first is Medal at Old Trail and the other is The Village Course which features a signature golf cart ferry to get you across the water on the 17th hole. The last course, Match, was designed by Gil Hanse who was invited to design the Rio 2016 Olympic Golf Course. Each course at Jonathan’s Landing challenges you to play with the mindset of architects and PGA-accredited help is always available to get you through the tough shots.
