Pavilion, playground, fish tank almost ready at Jupiter A1A mini-golf

A 3,500-gallon salt water fish tank, a restaurant/bar with 15 flat screen televisions, an open pavilion available for rent and an outdoor playground are highlights of the $700,000 plan to update the Lighthouse Cove Adventure mini-golf course in Jupiter’s Inlet Village.

“When we first opened, we weren’t sure what the needs of the community were. Our customers have told us this is what they are looking for,” said Patty Bartoli, who with her husband Greg opened the 36-hole course in 2013. The Jupiter couple have three children between the ages 5 and 8.

The new 2,100-square foot open pavilion on the east side of the property near DuBois Park will include seating for 84 patrons. The kitchen, which now serves ice cream, burgers and beer and wine, will be expanded. The pavilion, like the Jupiter Civic Center in Carlin Park, will be available for rental. The playground will be shaded and surrounded by a fence.

The opening is Feb. 20.

Besides the needs of their customers, the growth of the Inlet Village inspired the decision to expand the mini-golf course, said Greg. The Inlet Village is defined as the stretch of A1A from Jupiter Beach Road north to U.S. 1.

The Inlet Village includes the former Suni Sands Mobile Home Park, where owner Charles Modica plans to develop. The Love Street property, also owned by Modica and is planned for development, is on the north end.

The Inlet Village includes restaurants/bars such as Guanabanas and the Square Grouper, kayak/paddleboard rental stores, small hotels, public boat docking and a connection to Riverwalk, the town’s two-mile waterfront pedestrian/bicycle lane. The town recently spent $8 million installing new landscaping, sidewalks, bicycle lanes, on-street parking and drainage to spiff up along A1A in the Inlet Village.

“The Inlet Village is really taking off. There are lots of unique, local businesses that are working together,” said Greg.

The fish tank, which will be a glass cylinder about 8 feet high and 8 feet wide, is expected to be delivered by a crane this week. The lighted tank will include a coral reef and tropical fish. Golfers will enter from the 13th hole to walk into a cave leading to the tank.

There are about 25 employees, mostly part-time. About two dozen more employees will be hired when the project is completed.

Located on two acres on the northeast corner of Jupiter Beach Road and A1A, the course has historical markers of Jupiter.

An 18-foot-high replica of the red Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse stands near the center of the course. One sign tells readers about the history of the lighthouse. Another tells the tale of a steam tanker sunk by a German submarine 12 miles northeast of the Jupiter Inlet during WW II.

Foundation up at Jupiter restaurant partly owned by Michael Jordan

The building that will be the 1000 North waterfront restaurant partly owned by former NBA superstar Michael Jordan is coming out of the ground.

Jordan is one of 13 owners in the 325-seat restaurant on the Loxahatchee River expected to open by the end of 2017.

The other dozen investors include former New York Giants running back Tucker Frederickson. Jordan has a home in the Bear’s Club, a private community in off Donald Ross Road in Jupiter.

Facebook users, follow Post on Jupiter for latest news and updates.

The 18,000-square-foot restaurant, off U.S. 1 just north of Burt Reynolds Park, will have about 75 outdoor seats — including an outside bar — and overlook the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. A public dock and boat slips are planned.

A private club is planned on the second floor.  The annual fee is expected to be about $2,500.

Palm Beach County OK’s Funding For Submarine That Would Become Artificial Reef Off Jupiter’s Coast

Palm Beach County OKs Funding For Submarine That Would Become Artificial Reef Off Jupiter's Coast



Jupiter divers could soon have access to a sunken Navy submarine as a new underwater dive site.

Palm Beach County has approved $1 million toward sinking a historic Cold War submarine that would become an artificial reef off the coast of Jupiter. The county commission secured the funding in a unanimous vote Tuesday.

The USS Clamagore, a 322-foot ship with a history of 30 years of service during the Cold War, has been stationed at Patriots Point Naval Maritime Museum in South Carolina since the 1980s. The submarine has experienced saltwater damage from spending decades stationed in the harbor, and would otherwise meet its demise. 

“No veteran wants to see the ship that they served on turn into scrap metal,” Jena McNeal, artificial reef coordinator for the Department of Environmental Resources Management, said.

Commissioner Hal Valeche, who helped push the project forward, was a veteran himself and, in fact, also saw the ship he worked with become an artificial reef, according to McNeal.

The entire artificial reef project—from transportation to sinking—is estimated to cost $4 million. With $1 million already secured, the company working with Patriots Point to turn the submarine into a reef is responsible for fundraising the rest from private sponsors like Salt Life. The hope is to be able to sink the submarine by August, though that time frame could change, according to McNeal. 

An off-shore spot south of Juno Pier was selected as an ideal location because it would be an easy access point for boaters from both Jupiter Inlet and Palm Beach Inlet. 

The artificial reef would also help ease the strain on natural reefs as divers’ reef options in the Palm Beach County area are diversified, McNeal said.

“It just increases the habitat for reef species to live on and grow on,” she said. “Our natural reefs are always under pressure.”

The contractors, Miami-based CRB Geological and Environmental Services, are looking to transfer the USS Clamagore’s National Historic Register status to its new underwater home. There’s also talk of opening a museum location in the coming years with some of the artifacts retrieved from the interior of the submarine. 

“Those veterans can then go to that museum site, and still take part,” McNeal said.

Stuart Boat Show vendors ready for the crowds

Wednesday, the Stuart Boat Show set up continued in full force along Dixie Highway just north and west of the Old Roosevelt Bridge and in the water along the marinas there.

Boats were being washed and waxed, signage was being installed and display booths inside the tents were taking shape.

Friday morning at 10 a.m., more than 150 marine businesses from the Treasure Coast, Palm Beaches and beyond will be ready to welcome visitors to the 43rd installment of the show. Through Sunday, show-goers will be able to see a huge cross-section of what is available for those who love or are eager to enjoy the boating lifestyle.

One exhibitor at this year’s boat show is putting a new spin on two former Stuart Boat Show exhibitors.

METCo, or Marine Electronics of the Treasure Coast, is a Stuart-based company which has bought and combined RJ Marine Group in Stuart and GT Marine Services in Fort Pierce. Owner Mark Palazzo of Palm City looks to build on the rich history and stellar reputation of the longtime Treasure Coast businesses in the highly competitive and ever-evolving electronics business.

“We’re a full-service marine electronics dealer for customers from Jupiter Inlet to Sebastian Inlet,” said Palazzo, a Florida native with a lifetime of boating and fishing memories. “We’ll provide everything from sales to service to installation and refits for Garmin, Raymarine, Intellian, Fusion and a list of other products.”

METCo will be located at the former site of RJ Marine Group on Baker Road in Stuart. At the Stuart Boat Show, the company will be located at the center display tent on Dixie Highway.

Palazzo has a career full of experience in electronics and technology to go with a love for boating, fishing and diving. He was born and raised in Miami where his brother still works as a boat captain. A free weekend might find Palazzo with family and friends making a short trip to the Bahamas to fish and dive.

“We had been out of the state for a while, but 13 years ago were able to buy a home in Stuart and I’ve been happy to be back in Florida,” he said. “Here, I grew up in the water, on the water and under the water.”

He said it’s been exciting getting into a business that is always changing.

“It’s really something to see what’s happened in the marine electronics space just in the span of the past five years,” he said. “We’re doing a couple refits on large yachts and we’re literally removing hundreds of pounds of electronics and replacing it with basically the equivalent of a small flat screen panel. It’s amazing to see what’s happened to the amount of processing and computing power you can put on a boat. You have wifi, cellular. You have apps that allow your phone to talk to your chart plotter and to your radio.”

AllSports Productions’ Skip Allen Jr. said he is looking forward to a fun weekend.

“The show is sold out again, we’re going to have good weather and we’ve stepped up our marketing and social media campaigns, so I think we’re going to have a good turnout,” Allen said.

Boating newcomers or those with decades of boating experience will find plenty of displays that will engage, inform and entertain.

“The lineup of seminars going on all weekend long are going to be one of the best parts of the show,” Allen said. “Plus, there are so many new products at the show this year. Many of these products new for 2017 haven’t even been seen yet. Builders and dealers will have great things to show people.”

There will be hundreds of boats from small skiffs, paddleboards and kayaks up to sportfishing boats larger than 60 feet, cabin cruisers, center consoles and pontoon boats. The latest in marine electronics, new technology and services, and accessories will be on hand, too.

Motorists are reminded that through 6 p.m. Monday, Dixie Highway will be closed in Stuart between Fern Street and Albany Avenue for the show. Motorists crossing the St. Lucie River into and out of Stuart will need to use U.S. 1 via the Roosevelt Bridge in order to do so.

Hours: Friday Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
