Members Tournament!

By Jasper Burger

When you walk up the hill at Jupiter Hills club you see one of the most beautiful sunrises Florida has to offer. We are preparing for a golf tournament today. First coffee is out of the way and work needs to start for the day’s event.

Our ladies member tournament is a busy one with 120 ladies playing 36 rounds of golf over 2 days and the Food and Beverage department is responsible for all the events within the clubhouse such as breakfast and lunch being served and a cocktail reception with delicious h’ordeuvres.

 All departments have to work closely together to make this event enjoyable for the ladies. Golf/ recreational staff, kitchen and dining room staff have to pull together to make this a memorable event which is never a problem as we all respect one another. Around 6pm our sunset almost matches our sunrise and gives us a second wind to finish the day.

It is all worth it to work hard in a place like Jupiter Hills. One just needs to remind oneself that sometimes to take a good look around. See these beautiful photos!!!

Going up North for the summer!!!

By Julie-Ann Blom

Happy New Year!!!!!

Hope everybody is doing well and enjoying the New Year so far!
Well as you can guess it's that time of the year here in Florida. Your asking what that time is?

Drum roleee! It's time to apply for the clubs up North!!!! 
For everyone that does not know this, this is the time of year all the Florida recruits get an email from Workaway stating that the time has come to apply for the Northern Clubs which are located in New York, Philly, North Carolina, Chicago and the Hamptons. For the returnees that were up north last season it's a bit easier as their clubs usually invite them back. But for the new recruits the interview process is a bit nerve racking.

The positions are limited up north so only a few get the opportunity. Some of the clubs up North will do face to face interviews and others will do Skype interviews. Some of the clubs came down to Sailfish Point and did interviews at the club. The nerves were obviously running high the days when the interviews took place.

But I'm happy to say that most of my friends from Sailfish have been accepted up North to clubs such as the Hamptons, Philly and North Carolina!!!! And I'd like to say to those who are still interviewing for the clubs up North, good luck and I really hope you will be successful!

Speak to you soon.....
