I’m not really a fan of golf. I had a few putting games with golfer friends, went to the driving range to hit a few balls(wipe that grin off your face), and even played “chicken” with another golfer using golf carts on the fairway. I’m not good at this luxury game, even kids beat me in mini golf. But there are two guys that I admire the most in golf, “The Golden Bear” and Tiger. Jack is happily retired now, while Tiger is happily… well, let’s just talk about Tiger’s new love!
A couple of weeks back I featured Tiger’s ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, who had a multi-million dollar mansion bulldozed to the ground – with valid reasons of course. Now, it’s time to feature Tiger’s new bachelor’s pad. Tiger is really excited on this one and this might spring him back to the game since it is going to be a practice facility for him as well.
Tiger will soon be moving into his new Jupiter, Fla., home in the ultra-exclusive Jupiter Island. The mansion which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, exhibits huge windows for fantastic sea views and has a glass-fronted lift for anyone too tired (or too lazy) to take the stairs (probably for his aging golf buddy, Jack Nicklaus).
Earlier reports revealed that the 10,000 square foot luxurious den includes a gigantic bedroom, 3 more bedroom suites, a large wine cellar, possibly a cinema, and games area. (All of these for a single guy?)
Outside there are a number of tall trees and high boundary walls that surround the plot, and probably a few paparazzi death traps to ensure the privacy the golfer yearns for . There are further four buildings adjoining the main house: a boathouse, a stand-alone garage, an enormous guesthouse, and a golf training studio. It also features a tennis court, diving pool, lap lane, gym, and a 100-foot running track. A pair of boat docks will provide berth for the former number one golfer’s 155 ft yacht, Privacy.
And as icing on the cake, a new 3.5-acre back yard golf course – which the golf champion himself designed. Nothing really beats another game of golf after a game of golf!
All of these cost the former number one golfer about $50 million. Knowing that Tiger is worth a billion or more… $50 million was probably just a spare change to him. And the $100 million settlement – was just his lunch money!
