Michael Jordan wants to build his own golf course in Florida
Michael Jordan is sick of taking forever to play rounds at the Bear's Club so he's just going to build his own.
How do you solve slow play if you're wealthy like Michael Jordan?
You take your clubs and go home. In this case, "home" would appear to be a new, private golf course Jordan is going to build himself.
According to Sports Illustrated, Jordan is going to hand-pick members for his new club because he's sick of playing long rounds at the Bear's Club (where he's currently a member).
"Michael likes to play fast and he can't stand it when people won't let him through," said a golf-industry insider who knows Jordan and who has spoken with several Bear's Club's members. "That happens enough out there that he's gotten fed up."
Aren't we all?
According to the same source, who requested anonymity, Jordan has secured the option on a plot of land in nearby Hobe Sound, just south of the luxe Medalist Golf Club, which counts Tiger Woods and Rickie Fowler among its members.
He clearly has the money to do it, so the real question is really, "Why not?"
One impediment might be the soil where Jordan wants to lay his new sod. According to the folks Sports Illustrated talked to, it's really sandy and would be tough to build on.
Either way, Jordan sounds like the worst golf partner ever.
"He just steps up, hits, chews your ear off with smack talk and off he goes," said a source who has played with Jordan. "If he knows the guys he's with, he will not even wait. He'll drive up to the green as you're back in the fairway hitting. And if it's up to him, his foursome will finish in two-hours and 40 minutes."
