Golf.com's Josh Sens reports that Michael Jordan is fed up and can't take The Bears Club slowpokes any longer, and may just be thinking about developing his own course near Medalist Club.
Jordan has reportedly secured an option on land that has been previously considered for development.
Sources say that Jordan’s course ambitions have been fueled in part by his dissatisfaction with goings-on at the Bear’s Club, the Jupiter club where MJ is a member and owns a lavish home.
Those sources say that Jordan has grown frustrated with pace of play at the club.
“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.”
He has an architect in mind and we can only hope a reality show is in the works too...
A source close to Jordan said that golf-course architect Tom Doak is Jordan’s top choice to build the course. Doak did not respond to requests seeking comment.
