The West Course at the Fountains Country Club will be closed until mid-October as the club undergoes a $2 million renovation project.

The club is trying to get the course back to its original design by widening bunkers, restructuring fairways, and leveling parts of the course.

A very special and very colorful art installation is making its way to the Waterfront in Downtown West Palm Beach. “The Pool” by artist Jen Lewin is a gorgeous, interactive art installation that has made its way around the nation and will now be right here in sunny, South Florida for a few months.
