Michael Jordan is the most famous player in the history of basketball, but the former Chicago Bulls star also has an undying love for golf.
He has often found time to get out on the golf course during and after his illustrious career. His passion for the game culminated in producing his own golf course.
The Grove XXIII Golf Club was opened near Hobe Sound, Florida in autumn 2019 and it is truly a golf course that must be seen to be believed.
Shinnecock Hills was the inspiration for the site. The course twists in a double-helix shape where you can play four different combinations of two nines.

You can also play a number of different three to six-hole loops. There is a crossover junction after the fourth and 13th holes where you can take various routes on the course and play different sequences.

Jordan wanted the course to play fast and firm. The exclusive club is an incredible venue and it is home to an exclusive list of superstar members.
A list of players in a member-member event was posted on social media but was quickly taken down. The list included big names from the golf world and other spheres too.
Four-time major champion Rory McIlroy and two-time major winner Dustin Johnson were on the exclusive list set to play The Grove XXIII.
USPGA champions Justin Thomas and Keegan Bradley were on the list as well as NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, who is the father of Dustin Johnson's fiancé, Paulina Gretzky.

Five-time PGA Tour winner Rickie Fowler was also on the list as well as former World No. 1 Luke Donald. Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg and American fashion designer Mossimo Giannuli were also included.
American baseball pitcher Justin Verlander was also on the list that had been posted. TV personality and former American footballer Michael Strahan also plays at The Grove XXIII, named after Jordan's Chicago Bull's #23 jersey.
If you are lucky enough to play at this exclusive venue in the future, make sure that you keep your eyes open for some of the world's biggest stars in sport and entertainment.
