Over the years, South Florida, specifically the Jupiter area, has become the mecca for pro golfers.

While Jack Nicklaus was the first to call the northern Palm Beach County area home, Tiger Woods relocating to Jupiter Island in 2010 started the "boom" that has resulted in the top golfers in the world flocking to south Florida. Today, the likes of Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Rickie Fowler all live in the Jupiter area, making it one of the premier golf communities in the country.

It also looks like they are about to get a new neighbor.

At his press conference on Wednesday as the host of this week's American Express tournament in La Quinta, California, Phil Mickelson mentioned that he and his wife Amy recently purchased a

As part of its efforts as a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, the Country Club at Mirasol has begun harvesting its own honey.

The club currently houses 20 beehives throughout the 2,300-acre community, producing more than 430 pounds to the sweet nectar over the past 12 months. The honey produced from these beehives will be used in the Club's culinary operations, from marinades and appetizers to desserts and cocktails the club announced.  The "Bee Inspired" initiative will be prominently placed on menus by featuring a "Bee Inspired" logo.

In addition to the honey being used in food and drinks at the club, the honey will also be used throughout the spa and salon in special products. Those products include an exclusive “Yes! Honey” branded lip

The Skins Game is coming back! Well, sort of... 

While the old Thanksgiving tradition of the Skins Game isn't coming back to our TVs anytime soon, the event is making a comeback for at least one year, and with a twist.

"The Challenge: Japan Skins" was created by GolfTV in conjunction with the Zozo Championship, the first PGA Tour event to ever be held in Japan. Before history is made with the tournament itself, history will be made a few days before that as a skins game will be held and aired on TV for the first time since 2008.

Tiger Woods, Rory Mcllroy, Jason Day, and Japan native Hideki Matsuyama will all compete in the four-man exhibition. Each of the first six holes will be worth $10,000, while the next six holes will be worth $20,000.

Brooks Koepka has had one heck of a 2019 already.

The Jupiter resident won three times on the PGA Tour this past season, including the PGA Championship and the World Golf Championship - FedEx St. Jude Classic. The PGA Championship win brought his major total to four, all since 2017. He also had a few near misses at the Masters and U.S. Open, adding to his moniker of the new king of the majors. 

All his success on the course resulted in a lot of fanfare and headlines off the course as well. Brooks won the regular-season points and money title, has already been named the PGA of America Player of the Year, and will likely be named PGA Tour Player of the year as well. He was featured in the last ever ESPN the Magazine Body Issues and was on the

Abacoa is already known for its restaurants, boutique shops, and of course Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, home of the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals.

Recently though, the area has seen some new entertainment options pop up. Last year, an 18-hole miniature golf course opened, designed and built by Jack Nicklaus. Later this month, the latest entertainment option to come to Abacoa will open its doors, an escape room.

Will to Escape is set to open May 25th across from Aaron's Table and next to Civil Society Brewery according to owner Jarret Zwilling. Will to Escape will feature three one-hour escape rooms, all with different themes. The rooms will be called Sector X, The Stolen Relic, and The Terminal.

Anyone that was looking to purchase Eau Palm Beach can go ahead and put their checkbooks away because the beachfront resort and spa is no longer for sale.

In February, the resort hotel on Manalapan was put on the market. Recently though, the owners of the resort, London-based Lewis Trust Group had a change of heart and decided to pull the property off the market.

“After an extensive search, none of the parties that submitted bids ... met the terms of the owners of the hotel,” Eau spokesman Nick Gold told the Palm Beach Post on Wednesday. “So it’s no longer for sale. The Lewis family will continue to own and manage the hotel.”

Not only did the hotel owners decide to pull the property off the market, but they also announced that they will be

Everyone said he was done. Heck, even he said he was done. 

Sure, the scoreboard would show a T Woods every week. There would even be a guy out there wearing a red polo and black pants on Sunday. It wasn't Tiger Woods though. At least not the Tiger Woods that golf fans watched dominate the sport for over a decade from 1997 to 2008.

The "new" Tiger Woods was more of an elder statesman than a cutthroat competitor. The same guy who used to say that he would only tee it up if he thought he had a chance to win was now teeing it up in hopes of just getting four rounds in with his back staying in one piece. Sure, there were times where we saw flashes of the "old" Tiger in 2018. There was the PGA Championship where he finished runner up and almost ran
