Michael Jordan’s Private Golf Club: Top Golfers & Drink Delivery Drones
Many know Michael Jordan’s love for golf. When he wasn’t ripping for the Chicago Bulls in the 1980s / 1990s, he was swinging a club.
Jordan was known for playing rounds on the morning of big games and is said to have racked up over $ 1 million in lost betting debt against a San Diego businessman.
Now years away from his basketball player days, Jordan acts as the majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets franchise in the NBA.

Exclusive Michael Jordan Club
With a little more free time, Jordan’s passion for golf only grew with age. So much so that he created his own private club: The Grove XXIII.
The Grove XXIII is based on a course built on land in South Florida. It is modeled on the Shinnecock Hills course in New York which has already hosted the US Open.
The “XXIII” is a tribute to his famous number 23 jersey. Jordan has recruited a real who’s who to be part of his Michelin-starred golf club.

There is an upcoming “Membership Event” at the Jordan Club and it is expected to feature some of the best golfers in the world. Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas to name a few.
Then you have the celebrity factor. Of course, you need a Hollywood actor. Mark Wahlberg will be there. Then you have the great American sportsmen Wayne Gretzky and John Elway.
Jordan will team up with PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley for the “Membership Event”. Hopefully he’s ready for the competition.
This is by no means a typical golf event. Images showed drinks were being served via a drone on site. Those who play the course are sure to be thirsty.

These are just a few of the names teased for the event. Many other big names from various walks of life are members of the club.
At a “Membership Event” in February, Tiger Woods and Barrack Obama were in attendance. They even teamed up to play all 18 holes.
Phil Mickelson even said he had to go through some sort of sign-up process. That’s right, Phil Mickelson. He said he must have waited to be invited to the XXIII Grove.
We don’t know what the standard of golf at Michael Jordan’s Exclusive Club looks like, but there’s no doubt Jordan will want to win. At all costs.
