Michael Jordan’s Top-Secret Golf Course

by | Apr 12, 2021 | Sports

Michael Jordan’s private golf club in Florida is one of the most exclusive courses in the country. With under 80 members, high-profile frequenters of the golf course include President Barack Obama, PGA Golfer Ricky Fowler and Former Celtic Ray Allen.

Opened in 2019, the course’s official name is Grove XXIII, a nod to Jordan’s 23 jersey number as well as the orange grove that once occupied the property. However, it goes by a different name amongst its regulars: Slaughterhouse XXIII.

The name is a result of the course’s design, which plays to Jordan’s advantage.

According to Golf Digest, Jordan wanted the course to play “fast and firm” featuring broad fairways that “glide over dips and swales and melt into low-slung putting surfaces.”

“He can basically hit driver on all the par 4, par 5s. And if I want to hit driver, I have to kind of put it into a bit of a tighter spot,” Ricky Fowler said to Golf.com. “I can obviously play back if I want, but that becomes a little bit of a disadvantage, especially if it’s a hole where he’s getting a stroke on.”

As Jordan continues to host one of golf’s premier courses, his Jordan Brand is making a push into the golf apparel industry. Read our latest piece on the Air Jordan 4 “White Cement” golf-cleats the brand recently launched.
