Or be a 6 time super bowl champion QB.

Saw you mention Adios, Mizner CC in Delray isn’t far and worth getting out to once or twice. Had no problem getting on with a phone call and they only charged us $100. Really nice place.

 

I’ll second that OW knows his golf courses and is a fun guy to play with if you haven’t messaged him yet.

What are the initiation fee and dues @ Jonathan's Landing ?

 

Just north of $50k equity plus about a $12k initiation "throw away," so almost $65k to get in. Dues are somewhere between $12-$15k.

So do any clubs include free massages at Orchids of Asia? The Robert Kraft membership package could be popular. :lock:

 

Really pretty crazy and hard to believe a guy of his means would (apparently) regularly take that kind of risk. And he wasnt the only high profile figure...

Have played Floridian National, Fox Club, and The Florida Club recently. The Floridian was impeccable, perfect condition, fantastic staff, awesome view from clubhouse porch. Fox Club seriously disappointed, mediocre condition, aloof staff, ok layout. Bartender was great though.

For those visiting and playing publics, Florida Club is in excellent condition. Greens are perfect, as good as PGA Golf Club and Floridian.

Figured I'd check-in with an update. We are absolutely loving Jupiter. The weather has been spectacular. Weve been down here since Dec. 1st and I dont think there's been more than a handful of evenings where we couldnt dine outside in perfect comfort...including last night at The Cooper in PBG. There's almost always a lovely sea breeze. We've had no issues with bugs I think because of that, though I'm expecting the next several months to be hot & steamy. Still, I'll take it over the cold and considering that for 8 months down here its practically perfect weather.

 

I still have not joined a fully private club, but Eastpointe has my interest. It's very close to my current place in Abacoa with 36 holes (Fazio) and nice amenities. It's not a shiny new penny, but they've got some major projects underway and the courses are in excellent condition. Turtle Creek is also still high on my list, but a longer drive.

 

Temporarily, Abacoa has been awesome, but the $30 cart fees are killing me...lol....I wish they offered an annual trail fee. I'm in with a great group with a regular game 4 days per week and easy to find more if I'm up for it. We're heading up to Streamsong next week, so I'm looking forward to that!

 

If anyone can provide more info and opinions on Easpointe I'd appreciate it! ?

 

Edit: to add that I'm glad I didnt join Fox Club as they apparently shut down...

from what i understand, the names of the 36 at east pointe have changed names over the years, but i played "the golf & racquet club at east pointe" around christmas time 2013 via boxgroove and was left somewhat unimpressed. i understand you're trying to stay north near jupiter or palm beach gardens, but there are some real solid clubs / tracks a touch further south. i'm referring to banyan gc, mayacoo lakes, wellington national, wanderers club, and banyan cay resort. i figured emerald dunes may have too high an initiation given what you've said.

Give me a PM and I’ll tell you about Eastpointe. Part of west course is shutting down for construction so only 27 holes for a while.

dpb- Did you end up joining anywhere? I know this is a bit of an old thread, but I'm now finding myself in a similar boat... wife and I are thinking we will move down to the palm beach area later this fall and obviously I'm already trying to figure out where to play. We'll probably do a handful of short term rentals to figure out where we want to live, so nothing set in stone yet but have a few friends in West Palm and Delray.

I'd love to find a club that checks a few boxes for me:

WalkableGood practice facilitiesIdeally, a fun group of younger guys (30s)Doesn't need to be fully private, but need good pace of play and tee times on short notice

I am living in Jupiter in the Abacoa Community and joined Abacoa Golf Club which is semi-private. Initially I thought it was just going to be temporary until I figured out which fully private club to join. Now well into my second year I have no urgency to leave. As a daily feel it's a higher-end place with greens fees at around $150 in-season so it has a more upscale feel. They have a covenent with the town that requires they keep a certain number of times available for public play so the private membership is limited and there is a waiting list. I won a lottery to get a spot and have been very happy. Course is good, greens are always excellent and rival the privates, the deal is great, and the men's group I've connected with consists of a bunch of good dudes. The only negative from my perspective is no short game practice area.

I also joined the Palm Beach County Association and compete in their events. Great competition and you play all of the top clubs down here. Finding a club that allows you to walk is a challenge. It's just not a common thing in South FL unless it's one of the really high-end places with a caddie program. If I were to join a club in the Jupiter area I'd probably go to Turtle Creek or Tequesta CC, but both have really upped initiation fees and dues in the past few years so it's hard to justify when I've got such a nice set-up at Abacoa less than a mile from my house and at half the annual cost, let alone initiation fees.

Have you had a chance to play Jupiter Hills, MacArthur, or The Medalist? Not sure about the initiation and fees now, but those three always were my favs when I lived down there.

I have played Medalist many times, and Jupiter Hills once...both are exceptional! I have not played MacArthur but would love to play there; it's on the same sand Ridge as the other two and I've heard its great. All are well beyond my budget in terms of membership though...

Sure, to play as a guest - get invited by a member.

To become a member:

Medalist- write a check

Seminole - become CEO of a Fortune 500 company and have a decent golf resume as well
