Here in Palm Beach County golf and other physical activities are considered excellent forms of stress relief.  Palm Beach County has a surplus of private, as well as public golf courses available locals to get their respective game on. Golfers who shine in practice often crumble in tournaments because they manage stress poorly. Stress is an inevitable part of life. 

Golf is like no other than in Jupiter, Florida. The area is home to just 60,000 people, but without going more than 10 miles up and down the coast you can get to the home of the world’s top golfers Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and many others reside here. Officially, 35 PGA Tour pros live there, but between rentals and second, third, or fourth

Referred to as “Golf’s Hot Spot” in Golf Digest and the “Epicenter of Professional Golf” by GOLF.com, the sunny beachside town of Jupiter Florida is the place to live for today’s pro golfers.

The current crop of Tour players have flocked to Jupiter Florida, favoring the beachside town for its warm weather, its absence of income tax, its unparalleled lifestyle, and its prevalence for affluent suburbs that allow access to private clubs and games with other pros.

One of the most public additions to the Jupiter scene was Tiger Woods when he completed a $38 million purchase in 2016 of 10 acres of residential property stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway, but 35 PGA

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

Delray Beach, a thriving coastal city located directly on the Atlantic Ocean, is a fun, energetic, and fun piece of South Florida.

Atlantic Avenue

Affectionately called “The Ave” by locals, Atlantic Avenue is arguably the epicenter of Delray’s cultural life. Recently named one of the ten best urban shopping centers in America by USA Today, some are even calling it the best street in Palm Beach County.

Those most familiar with the street might call it an exercise in contrasts: it brilliantly manages to balance elements of both gritty beach culture and high-end resort; both fine dining and burger shack; both pricey boutique/gallery and the refreshingly tacky.

Chain stores and local gems jostle for space, and numerous restaurants, specialized
