PGA pro Rory McIlroy sells Palm Beach Gardens home
The golf champ's property features a putting green, pool and dock
Rory McIlroy scored a buyer for his waterfront mansion in Palm Beach Gardens.
The PGA pro sold the six-bedroom, 10,600-square-foot home at 2380 Old Gate Lane for $11.15 million to the Elms Gate Land Trust, which is managed by Christopher Hughes, according to property records.
The home, which features a putting green, pool, reflection pond, dock, outdoor fireplace and more, sold with the lot next door. Together they total about 1.67 acres. McIlroy put the properties on the market in January for $12.9 million.
Golf Magazine reported that McIlroy purchased the former home of Ernie Els at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, where McIlroy practices and a number of professional athletes have owned homes.
McIlroy, of Northern Ireland, has won four major championships, including the 2011 U.S. Open and the 2014 PGA Championship.
Property records show he paid a combined $11.75 million for the home and adjacent lot in 2012.
Nearby, in October, the president and CEO of Allergan Plc paid $6.6 million for the Palm Beach Gardens home at 14630 Watermark Way.
