Approval from the Jupiter Town Council of Lighthouse Cove, a 36-hole attraction, could turn a vacant lot into a fun zone.

According to the owners of the property, Lighthouse Cove would complement the fishing-village vibe of coastal Jupiter and provide youths and teens with a much-needed recreational opportunity.

Waterfront Properties and Club Communities, a licensed real-estate brokerage serving Jupiter and northern Palm Beach County, is poised to be neighbors with a miniature golf course.

The company and its team of Realtors specialize in South Florida homes for sale on the golf course, but its golf-course homes are nestled along the fairways of championship-caliber links designed by Raymond Floyd, Jack Nicklaus and other notable golfers.

Lighthouse Cove will add a new twist to the environment.

The miniature golf course is planned for a two-acre parcel east of A1A and north of Jupiter Beach Road, near the Estuary. The Estuary is a quiet neighborhood of townhomes built amid its own private golf course seconds away from the ocean.

According to the owners of the property, Lighthouse Cove would complement the fishing-village vibe of coastal Jupiter and provide youths and teens with a much-needed recreational opportunity. Brenda Arnold, program manager for the town’s Community Redevelopment Agency, agreed, and said zoning regulations clearly allow for such uses.

The plans, which the members of Jupiter Town Council approved on a 4-1 vote, call for a nature preserve measuring 8,000 square feet to buffer the golf course on the northeast quadrant of the property. In addition, a two-story building about 2,000 square feet in size would house a fast-food restaurant that also serves beer and wine. Council members agreed to a review of the facility six months after it debuts.

As for the miniature golf course, the hazards include a 20-foot replica of Jupiter Lighthouse, the bright-red beacon on historic property west of Jupiter Island, as well as a series of waterfalls and other tropical features. Hours of operation are set for 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. Lighthouse Cove would employ about 20 workers who would operate the family-friendly amusement, the property owners said.
