Jupiter Florida, home to the PGA Tour players

Thursday I had the chance to go to the Honda Classic so I took a friend who had never been to a PGA event.  It was quite an eye opener for him.

Since I have played golf for decades and lived in Jupiter  for 20 years I was able to fill him in with a lot of background on the PGA Tour players that call this area home.

Up on Jupiter Island, live Tiger Woods, Greg Norman and Nick Price.  Years ago, Lee Trevino had a big estate there and one day while visiting the house next door overheard him working in his garage on his golf clubs and chatting with his caddie, Herman Mitchell.  It's always interesting to be a "fly on the wall" and see the famous living just like the rest of us.

Jesper Parnevik used to live in Admirals Cove.  One day while driving through AC, I saw him being filmed hitting balls across the water on a short par 3.  I don't know what they were filming, but he sure made it look effortless.  In addition to his golf skills, he is famous for introducing Tiger to his (then future) wife, Elin.  The following year while at the Palm Beach Boat Show we were walking behind him on the docks and later saw Ian Baker-Finch near the sailboats.   Finch lives just south of Jupiter.

In Tequesta, Mark Calcavecchia, Steve Marino and Camilo Villegas all own properties along the Loxahatchee River.  Across the River, Rickie Fowler bought a home.  Any why not, it's gorgeous and a 5 minute boat ride to the Atlantic Ocean and great fishing.

Briny Baird lives in nearby Palm City and Will McKenzie calls Jupiter home as well.  And Jack Nicklaus lives in North Palm Beach.

These are just the PGA Tour pros I know of.  We also have all kinds of celebrities from other fields living here.  Why do people who have the money to live anywhere in the world pick Jupiter?
Because it's a great place to live....period!!
