I'm down in Jupiter and I usually hit balls at the North Palm Beach range but it's closed for renovations. I refuse to pay Abacoa prices but do I have any other options..? A range plus chipping/putting would be great but I'd settle for just the range at this point...

Abacoa is pretty much the only good place (grass range) that's open to the public as far as I know. You could zip up 95 to Hammock Creek, but not sure of their range prices plus it may be too inconvenient for you to drive 30 min.

Abacoa charges what they do because the demand is there. The range is packed from dawn to dusk. They could probably support the entire operation over there just on range income and banquets...lol! Fortunately it subsidizes the golf course operation and Abacoa's greens are as good or better than many of the exclusive full-privates in the area.

i remember running into the same issue when i was down there and north palm's range was shut for a day or 2.  
within roughly the same distance as hammock creek there's also champion's club at summerfield in stuart and west palm beach golf course to the south.  but yeah, you're pretty much SOL for anything under 30 min or so from jupiter outside of abacoa and npbgc.

I just thought of another, Lost Lake in Hobe Sound right off of US 1. Semi-private, nice practice range. I'm not sure how their range prices compare though...

I don't think Abacoa's range fees are all that expensive but it does lack a short game area. Green fees however are very high for a public course and keep going up probably because of demand/supply.

Lost Lake is probably the nicest range in the area but alas they do not allow you to use it unless you’re playing there. Aside: I played that course yesterday. Extremely weird layout. Felt forced from the gold tees. I’d much prefer champions for $50.

Last time i played champions, the range was all sand, barely some flecks of grass.
You could try Sandhill Crane. They move the hitting areas alot, so you might be onnthe mats.

I just paid the $20/100 balls at abacoa. It’s not cheap but it’s the best range near where I stay.
