Jupiter Hills Club
Tequesta, Fla. • qualifying: Jun 05, 2017
Sectional qualifying pays a visit to Jupiter Hills Club's Hills Course for the first time since 2008. The club is no stranger to big events, having hosted the 1987 U.S. Amateur Championship won by Billy Mayfair. Next spring, the club will be the host site for the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship. George Fazio and his nephew, Tom Fazio, designed both 18-hole layouts at the facility. The Hills Course opened in 1970 and the Village Course eight years later. The course does feature several elevation changes with a 60 feet variance between its lowest and highest points. The holes were routed between acres of pine, oak and palmetto trees.
One interesting tidbit: comedian Bob Hope, George Fazio and industrialist William Ford among others collaborated to create an ultra-private enclave in southeastern Florida.
