Michael Jordan’s High-End ‘The Grove XXIII’ Golf Club
Michael Jordan is considered one of the greatest NBA player of all time, so it stands to reason that everything he does is over the top. The retired basketball star had a stint as a professional golfer, and still enjoys the sport to this day. One of his latest endeavors: The Grove XXIII—the number is, of course, a nod to the GOAT's number when he played for the Chicago Bulls—an ultra-exclusive, sophisticated new club in Florida.
The private golf club is designed by the NBWW architectural firm, opened in the fall of 2019 the high-tech luxury golf course is located in Hobe Sound, Florida, featuring a private 18-hole golf course, a 15,000 square foot clubhouse, locker rooms, lounge areas, a golf pro shop, on-course shelter, gatehouse, practice range, and learning facility. It’s uber-exclusive and invite only.
One of the perks that have been circulating the Internet is the Grove XXIII’s on-course drone refreshments service instead of the traditional beverage cart. The drones deliver all-day snacks and alcoholic drinks to the club members, wherever you are on the course.
Other unique highlights of the Grove XXIII include golf carts without a governor, meaning that they can reach up to the carts’ max speed of 35 mph, unlike other golf clubs that usually put a limit on how fast you can go in a cart. The caddies also make their way around the course on golf scooters instead of walking. Multiple articles have confirmed it's a super-exclusive club with just fewer than 100 members so far.
