A bar with 15 television screens, a restaurant with seating for 82 customers and a 3,500-gallon salt water fish tank are part of the expansion of the Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf restaurant,  scheduled to have it’s grand opening at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 1.

The menu, which now includes ice cream, burgers and beer and wine, has been expanded.

The 36-hole miniature golf course, on the northeast corner of Jupiter Beach Road and A1A, opened in 2013.

The $1 million expansion, including renovations to the mini-golf course, includes a playground.

Golfers will enter the lighted fish tank area from the 13th hole to walk into a cave leading to the tank, which will include a coral reef and tropical fish. Underwater sea sounds are piped in from speakers.

Grouper and other fish are scheduled to be delivered in coming weeks, said Greg Bartoli, who owns the golf course and restaurant with his wife Patty. The Jupiter couple have three children under 10 years old.

There are now about 25 employees, mostly part-time. About two dozen more employees have been hired.

The ongoing growth on the Inlet Village, defined as the stretch of A1A from Jupiter Beach Road north to U.S. 1, convinced the Bartolis to expand.

The Inlet Village includes Suni Sands and Love Street, both planned for commercial/residential/retail development.

“This is a great area, and we want to be a part of it,” said Greg Bartoli.
