Located along the southeast coast in the Palm Beach area of Florida, Jupiter is a city noted for its lighthouse views, majestic landscapes and relaxing beach areas.
Much like the rest of the “Sunshine State”, Jupiter has everything a golf enthusiast would want for a great golf getaway.
There are numerous public courses in the area that can be played without denting the wallet. We’ll take a look at the Abacoa Golf Club, the Golf Club of Jupiter, and Jupiter Dunes Golf Course.

The last golf course designed by legendary architect Joe Lee, the Abacoa Golf Club is one of the best courses to play in South Florida and the local area.

The course will challenge players of all playing abilities and unlike many courses in Florida which are flat, Abacoa has many elevation changes to add to the challenge and enjoyment!
