Michael Jordan building a golf course

Michael Jordan is many things to many people: the greatest basketball player of all time, a business and NBA team owner, and a golf enthusiast.

And now those passions are about to intersect as Jordan builds his first golf course, dubbed Grove XXIII.

Weed describes the design process, and creating “a course for tomorrow, with a refined edge.” Weed, who has never been shy to move ground to create playable space, says the near flat site is getting a lot of earthwork.

He’s also impressed with the way Jordan has thrown himself into the project, including weekly onsite visits.

He plays with guys like Rickie Fowler and Keegan Bradley often, and Fowler even noted two years ago before the Honda Classic that facing Jordan with some bills at stake is great practice.
