Jack Nicklaus and RGIII are about to be neighbors
Jack Nicklaus and Robert Griffin III are about to live in very rich houses very close to one another.
How's that for the random headline of the day.
According to the Washington Business Journal Jack Nicklaus is moving into RGIII's neighborhood:
"Southworth Development CEO David Southworth said Tuesday that construction has begun on a 5,500-square-foot home Nicklaus and his wife, Barbara, had specially designed in the luxury residential community that boasts other celebrity owners including Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III."
The move allows Nicklaus to be closer to the golf course with his name on it at Creighton Farms in Virginia.
"Nicklaus has been planning to have a home built for him at Creighton Farms for several years. The WBJ first reported on his plans back in July 2010. Southworth, which owns the 900-acre community, said the home is being developed off the ninth hole of the golf course, appropriately in the North Villas section of the community's Nicklaus Village neighborhood."
Griffin's house cost $2.5 million when he moved into it.
I can't wait for the first photo of those two playing golf together or, even better, Griffin throwing Nicklaus out routes and slant routes in the street of their neighborhood!
