Every year college football teams from around the country take the field week in and week out with the goal of making it to one of the college football postseason bowl games. For most of the players, schools, and fans, it’s a trip to a warm weather climate in the heart of winter and a reward for a successful winning season.

There is little surprise that with the warm weather that Floridian’s enjoy year round that the state currently hosts six to seven bowl games every year from Jacksonville down to Miami and everywhere in between. One of the only areas that did not host one of these games was Palm Beach County. That is about to change though, as Florida is adding one more bowl game to its schedule.

Starting in…

Andrew Kozan’s first love was baseball. The Palm Beach Gardens resident started on the diamond at the age of four. A year later, something happened that very well could be life changing for the 14 year old: he discovered the game of golf.

Not wanting to play a team sport anymore, the freshman at King’s Academy in West Palm Beach took up golf and has not looked back since.

“I decided I didn’t want to play a team sport like that,” Kozan said, “where you have to depend so much on everyone else’s performance. I wanted to play a game with more independence, and my mom took me out to play golf one day and I loved it.”

That decision by his mom has proven to be a good one as Andrew has already won three times on…

It is every golfers dream to one day get their PGA Tour card and play at the highest level of professional golf. For two local golfers, those dreams could soon become a reality.

Despite missing the cut at the season ending Cox Classic on the Web.com tour, Jupiter resident Jamie Lovemark finished 12th on the regular season money list. With the top 25 on the money list automatically securing PGA Tour cards before the playoffs even start, Lovemark has ensured at least some type of status on the PGA Tour for next season.

Lovemark won the Midwest Classic back in July and finished the regular season with a win, three top-10 finishes and six top-25 finishes. He will have an opportunity to improve on that position and even achieve…

Instead of the regular white lights, the Jupiter Lighthouse will be illuminated in blue spotlights this weekend.

The change to blue will be in honor of Lighthouse benefactor Joan Hudiburg. Hudiburg passed away on July 13. In addition to being a benefactor of the lighthouse, she was also the former Board Secretary for the Loxahatchee River Historical Society as well as a volunteer at the Jupiter Lighthouse.

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is located just west of the Jupiter Inlet where the Intracoastal meets the Loxahatchee River. Built in 1860, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places list in 1973. Today it serves as a museum and offers daily tours.

West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio announced on Thursday that the West Palm Beach Golf Course will shut down its clubhouse by the end of the weekend.

The announcement came only a few days after residents and the city considered spending money to fix up the aging, existing clubhouse. The current building, which was built around 1947, leaks and has problems with lead, termite, and asbestos.

Golf operations will immediately be moved to a trailer and restrooms will be available in the golf cart garage. The Bradley’s Hole-in-One restaurant will close down, however Bradley’s will still be allowed to operate a snack cart.

No announcement has been made on when or if a new clubhouse will be built.

This week the PGA Tour returns to the Big Apple for the start of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. For the first time since 2009, the post season for the PGA Tour kicks off at Liberty National Golf Club, just across the river from New York City and the famed Manhattan skyline.

While the course has gone under a major renovation since 2009, one thing remains the same as the top golfers on tour return, and that’s the points leader. Just like in 2009, world number one Tiger Woods enters with the top spot in the FedEx Cup rankings.

The Jupiter Island resident comes into the playoffs with a 786 point lead over Matt Kuchar and will look to strengthen that lead even more with a strong…
