Yesterday I was doing a little research on Jupiter Hills in Tequesta. It's amazing what you can find on the internet! I discovered some really amazing and interesting things about Jupiter Hills Club. Did you know that there was a book written about Jupiter Hills?? It's called "The Jupiter Hills Story: Quarter Century of Golf" I was able to find a used copy of the book for sale and it was $60!!! I'm inclined to know what's in that book.
But that's not why I am writing this note. I actually wanted to talk about the 9th Hole on the Hills course at Jupiter Hills. Golf a Jupiter Hills has been rated in several magazines over the years as a top private club. Bill Davis, a golfer and instructor at Jupiter Hills has been ranked as one of the top 50 teachers by Golf Digest. So the golf community at Jupiter Hills has something to be proud of.
I discovered in my research about Jupiter Hills that Hole No. 9 has been ranked as a hole that you must play before you die. I read several articles: "Top 100 Golf Holes to Play," "Top 1001 Golf Holes," etc. So what's so special about it? It's an UPHILL HOLE in FLORIDA!!! And as if that wasn't enough, you have to get your ball over a sandy ravine filled with waste water and native vegetation. Oh and not to mention the swirling breezes from the nearby Atlantic...AND this par 3 is on top of a sand dune, 40 feet from the tee box.
I've never played golf but this all sounds really challenging. Anyone actually played this hole? Is it as treacherous and challenging as the articles make it out to be?
