Jordan once wore cargo pants to a country club, La Gorce in Miami. He was asked to leave because of the same cargo pants. This might’ve been one reason why Jordan went on to buy a golf course. The ‘Grove XXIII’ is in Hobe Sound, Florida. Estimated at approximately $20 million, Grove XXIII spans over 15,000 square feet.

The club is luxurious and not everyone is invited to play. There are under 100 members of the Grove XXIII, as only professional golfers, celebrities, and other contacts of Jordan are invited to play. Compared to his previous experience, his club even drops snacks for golfers using drones.

Some big names who were invited to play include Barack Obama, famous golfers Justin Johnson and Justin Thomas, to name a few. The club also organized a member’s event, to which Tiger Woods was invited.
