Stuart was dubbed the "Sailfish Capital of the World" in 1938 by Miami Herald columnist, Enrnie Lyons, who visited the city and saw its vicinity to world-class sport fishing. Lyons was on a charter fleet offshore of the St. Lucie Inlet, where that week approximately 1,000 sailfish were caught and released by skilled anglers. Lyons returned to Miami to tell the world about the exceptional game fishing Stuart has to offer.

Since then, the sailfish has become part of the history of Stuart, as you can see from statues, fountains (pictured above) and business names in the area. Sailfish are still always a big catch just a few miles offshore in 80-160 feet of water and are caught with trolled dead baits.

Jupiter Hills will make Florida golf history this month when it hosts the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship on May 19th-23rd, making it the first course in the state to hold multiple USGA Championships. 

Jupiter Hills was created by Hall of Fame architect Tom Fazio, who designed more than 40 courses in Florida. Fazio has 14 courses on Golf Digest’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses- more than any other designer alive.

The Jupiter Hills course is different than any other because it is built upon natural hills of a sand ridge that runs all the way up to Vero Beach. There was never a need to bring sand to the course and yet each hole has a 40-50 yard elevation change. “There was a geologic study that showed where Jupiter Hills was built, thousands of

Enjoy fresh, local seafood just steps from the ocean. In Palm Beach, there is only one true outdoor restaurant at the ocean’s edge. Atlantic Bar and Grill, located in the Four Seasons Resort, 2800 South Ocean Boulevard, Palm Beach serves lunch and dinner daily.

The Executive Chef, Tory Martindale, feels food should be fun and whimsical.  He is quoted as saying, “I love to create dishes by mixing different cultural pinpoints of flavor and style. A chef’s mind is a giant library of flavors, combinations, techniques and plating concepts. Whenever I build a dish, it’s like flipping through a massive directory and finding the nuances that may connect one item to another and then synergizing it all into what you are creating at the moment.”
