A new outdoor playground and pavilion is coming to the Lighthouse Cove mini-golf course in Jupiter.

The town council approved the plan Tuesday night by a 4-1 vote. Councilman Jim Kuretski dissented.

The playground and pavilion were approved for the northeast corner of the 2-acre parcel, walking distance from DuBois Park and attractions in the Inlet Village.

Jupiter residents Patricia and Greg Bartoli, owners of the golf course, have invested $3 million in their business, they said. The expansion, expected to start in about two months, will cost about $350,000, which includes a required $150,000 mitigation payment to the town.

The golf course employs about 20 full- and part-time employees.

The course, which opened three years ago on the northeast corner of Jupiter Beach Road and A1A, has signs marking the history of Jupiter along the 36-hole course.

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.

Another mini-golf course was approved in July in Abacoa on now-vacant property on the northeast corner of Main Street and Chancellor Drive.
