Thanksgiving gatherings in South Florida may be different than in other parts of the United States just in part due to the glorious weather!  Bright skies, pleasant climate, and cool breezes are easy justifications to stay out of the kitchen and go outside with visiting family and friends.

Make time for a round of golf at one of the many signature golf courses in the Jupiter area. Have a smashing tennis match or leisurely day at the beach with guests by simplifying the Thanksgiving menu just a smidge. Merely prepare some things in advance.  While the turkey is roasting away in the oven, nibble on a couple of The Food Network elegant light bites and reminisce on all the over all the things for which you are grateful.

There was very little about this year's Masters that felt "traditional".

Normally held in April, the event was pushed back to mid-November due to the Covid pandemic. There were also no patrons and the par 3 contest, normally held on the eve of the first round, was also cancelled this year due to the pandemic. The only things that were "traditional" about the 2020 Masters were the pimento cheese sandwiches and the loaded leaderboard come Sunday.

When the dust settled, it was Dustin Johnson slipping on the Green Jacket, winning the second major of his career.

DJ came into Sunday holding on to a 4 shot lead but was also 0-for-4 when it came to converting 54 hole leads in major championships. Early on it appeared that dubious record might extend

The distinguished "Top 100 Courses" list, released annually by Golf Digest, recently revealed that Juno Beach's Seminole was ranked as the 34th best golf course in the world. The world was able to see the unqiue beauty and distinct dynamic of Seminole this past summer during a Covid-19 relief match featuring Palm Beach County residents Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson. 

Here is what Golf Digest had to say about the local gem: "The course plays along and between two main dune lines, and Ross made the most of the opportunity with holes continually tacking in different directions. The club prides itself on its firm playing surfaces and when the coastal breezes kick in, watch out. Some grouse that the course’s reputation is built on the

It might have taken him 40 starts, but Darren Clarke is finally a winner on the PGA Tour Champions.

Needing a birdie on the 18th hole on Sunday at the TimberTech Championship, Darren Clarke safely two-putted from 40 feet to get his first professional win since the 2011 Open Championship and prevent Bernhard Langer from successfully defending his 2019 title. 

“I’ve had a lot of opportunities the last few years, so it’s great to finally win one,” Clarke said. “I wouldn’t be working this hard if I didn’t think I could still win.”

It had appeared that Langer, a Boca Raton resident, was well on his way to back-to-back victories at the Old Course at Broken Sound and three in the last 10 years. He held a 1 shot lead

In early 2020, the Martin County Golf Course began renovations to the course and a name change. The new course is now called “Sailfish Sands” and the new course is going to be bolder, innovative, and more unique, nothing like any other course in Martin County.

Earlier this week, the Martin County Parks and Recreation Director announced that he went before the County Commission to update them on the progress of the massive project and to ask for additional funding. The director and course asked for $3 million dollars more which will bring the complete renovation cost to around $8 million dollars and the county approved the changes during the meeting. The county commissioners believe that the new high-end, modern facility will be a huge benefit to the

In a move that is largely considered unprecedented, the owners of the Boca Country Club have announced their plans to donate the exclusive country club to the city. 

The club, which features an 18-hole Joe Lee designed championship golf course, tennis courts, a clubhouse, and a pool will now become a public club, with the goal of it going 100% public within the next year. 

The club is currently owned by MSD Partners and Northview Hotel Group who purchased the property in June of 2019 along with the Boca Raton Resort and Club. They are donating Boca Country Club to the city in order to focus more on the Boca Resort and Club and also to help give back to the city and its residents. 

While the club will become public moving forward, those who are
