About two weeks after purchasing a Palm Beach Gardens home, Steven Nicklaus sold a mansion located on the seventh hole of his father’s signature golf course at Jupiter’s The Bear’s Club for $8.3 million.

Nicklaus and his wife Krista sold the 12,000-square-foot home at 176 Bears Club Drive in a transaction recorded last week, according to Palm Beach County records. The couple paid $2 million for the property in January 2006. The six-bedroom mansion was constructed three years later.

H.B. and Cecilia Wehrle of West Virginia are the buyers. No financing was recorded.

Listed for $10.9 million, the home includes six full bathrooms, a library, theater, game room, swimming pool and spa. Mark Griffin of Coastal Sotheby’s International Realty was the listing agent.

Steven Nicklaus was the only one of Jack Nicklaus’ four sons to not play golf professionally. Instead, he played football at Florida State and worked for the family-owned Nicklaus Companies.

Last month, Steven and Krista Nicklaus paid about $1.1 million for a four-bedroom house in the Frenchmans Creek community of Palm Beach Gardens. — Eric Kalis
