Jupiter Hills Club
A golf club named Jupiter Hills in the unrelieved horizontal terrain of South Florida has to give pause for thought. This club, however, is a place of Florida dunes’ dramatic topography just a few miles north of Palm Beach. It was this special scene that inspired the Fazio’s, first George and then George and Tom, to create two exceptional golf courses—the raison d’etre for the Jupiter Hills Club. It was the seminal assignment that led to Tom’s body of work and his high regard as a golf course designer.
First hired in 1985 to create site and clubhouse improvements for the 1987 U.S. Amateur Golf Tournament, Peacock + Lewis was rehired in 2000 to complete a master plan to replace the clubhouse.
Designed in the vernacular of a Long Island country estate home the Jupiter Hills Clubhouse sits majestically at 65′ feet above sea level with panoramic views to the surrounding ocean and golf course. During the early design phases of this replacement clubhouse, a scaffolding was built on the rear patio of the old Clubhouse for the leadership partake of the view putting a higher elevation would yield. The design also took advantage of the natural elevation by adding a basement to house much needed of the back of house operations storage needs and a future fitness center.
