Rory McIlroy is on the move.
The newly wedded World No. 11 has placed his Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on the market for $13 million. A complete listing of the home is available at Realtor.com, but Golfweek.com’s The Forecaddie had some information on McIlroy’s move.
You can trace the arc of Rory McIlroy’s success through real estate. Last fall his childhood home in Holywood, Northern Ireland went on the market, several years after his family had sold up. The asking price: $325,000. The four-time major winner bought his own first house a few miles away from his parents but sold that in 2012, with a tag of $2.7 million. Now the Forecaddie hears McIlroy is selling his mansion in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
The price this time? An eye-watering $12.9 million.

The Man Out Front also hears McIlroy is moving just five minutes away to the exclusive Bear’s Club, where he has bought the former home of Ernie Els (the Big Easy has decamped to a new pad at nearby Old Palm Golf Club, where fellow South African Louis Oosthuizen lives). McIlroy is one of several high-profile Tour players who practice at the exclusive Bear’s Club, including Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler.
The former World No. 1 bought the secluded waterfront home five years ago when he was dating tennis star Caroline Wozniacki. He paid $9.5 million for the home in January, 2013. He married Erica Stoll in April of 2017.
The property boasts more than 10,000 square feet of living space and includes an adjacent empty lot that the golfer also purchased. The house was built in 2010 and has six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a soaring double-height living space and a synthetic putting green by the pool.
