Jack Nicklaus’ son to auction Jupiter home he built
Gary Nicklaus, son of legendary professional golfer Jack Nicklaus, plans a June 28 auction of his six-bedroom house on Bears Club Drive in Jupiter.
Gary Nicklaus bought the land at 209 Bears Club Drive for $1.65 million in 2005, and he built his 15,000-square-foot house there in 2009.
The house is located at The Bears Club, a private community Jack Nicklaus founded in 1999, attracting basketball great Michael Jordan among others who bought homes there.
Concierge Auctions will conduct the June 28 auction, for which no minimum bid has been set. Gary Nicklaus previously had listed his six-bedroom house in The Bears Club for sale for $12.5 million.
According to Concierge, Gary Nicklaus’ house occupies a lot spanning about three acres and features a gym, resort-style swimming pool and five-car garage.
The Sun-Sentinel also reported that Gary Nicklaus said in a statement he chose to work with Concierge Auctions “in order to take control of the sales process and deliver the best price possible on our schedule.” [Sun-Sentinel] — Mike Seemuth
