Champion stars like Woods, McIlroy and Koepka all own fantastic mansions in the tax haven of Jupiter Island worth millions

TALK about the Millionaire Series.

Golf greats past and present have called the stunning city of Jupiter Island, Florida their home for decades.

From Gary Player to Tiger Woods to Rory McIlroy, these sports stars are drawn to the picturesque barrier island that is home to some of the richest people in the United States.

Not only is it a tax haven since Florida residents don’t have to pay personal income taxes, Jupiter Island offers fortress-like mansions that offer the ultimate in privacy for the biggest stars.

That’s why Phil Mickelson is building a house from scratch in Jupiter, just outside of Woods.

Here’s who lives among Jupiter Island’s 900 or so residents – with a peek inside their lavish possessions.

TIGER WOODS

The five-time Masters champion lives in an incredible £41million mansion that has four holes, a 100ft swimming pool, as well as an outdoor basketball court and tennis court.

It is so large that it is divided into two sections, one being a 3,300 square meter residential quarter and the other being a 6,400 square meter multi-purpose building.

And Tiger has plenty of brilliant quirks inside, including its own oxygen therapy room, private cinema, state-of-the-art gym and games room.

The house was built in 2010 after his divorce from Elin Nordegren.

Nordegren wanted to move to Jupiter Island to be close to her pal Jesper Parnevik, for whom she worked as a nanny.

Just around the corner from the American’s home is his restaurant called The Woods.

His restaurant, The Woods, is just around the corner from his luxury home.

Described as a “legendary sports bar experience,” the likes of Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, and Rickie Fowler have dined there.

“There are a few lakes in Orlando, but it’s not the ocean,” Woods said.

“Jupiter is just a great area to live in.”

Rory Mccilroy

McIlroy moved to the golf capital of the world in 2017.

He’s poured £8.5million into this gorgeous 12,800-square-foot home formerly owned by Ernie Els.

It is part of the exclusive Bear’s Club, a golf facility founded by Jack Nicklaus in 1999 and located 85 miles north of Miami.

There are seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms inside, as well as a recording studio, game room, huge pool, gym, tennis court, and home theater.

McIlroy has come a long way from his humble end-of-terrace home in Belfast.

RICKIE FOWLER

So this is what you can buy in Florida for £11million.

The 2019 President Cup winner owns a coveted 11,573 square foot waterfront property that he purchased in 2016.

It features six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a game room, a mud room, a sports bar, and of course, a large outdoor pool.

It also has its own golf hole with a variety of tees to practice on.

After winning the 2017 Honda Classic, Fowler headed to Tiger’s The Woods restaurant to celebrate.

Greg Norman

“The Shark” has lived on Jupiter Island since 1991.

Norman bought the 26,000 square foot Tranquility home for around £4million at the time and attempted to sell it for a staggering £42million in 2016.

However, he has been unable to find buyers for the site, which consists of seven separate buildings, including a two-bedroom oceanfront guest house.

Additionally, Tranquility, one of Norman’s many homes, featured a 165-foot deep-water dock as well as a 50-foot swimming pool.

We say brag because Norman decided to plan to grade the property after failing to find a buyer for it in 2018.

The work should be complete by the end of 2019, but what’s in its place is a mystery so far.

NICK PRICE

Another golfer who has secured an oceanfront property, Zimbabwean Price, owns this 14,659 square foot home that sits on seven acres.

Described as “its own world,” it has five bedrooms, an expansive lawn, a pool, and a porch for dining.

The home features an interior/exterior design, with Price being able to feel the sea breezes blowing into the property in most of the rooms.

In 2016 he tried to sell the facility, which was built with exotic woods from Africa, for around £18million.

However, it was never confirmed if he found takers.

GARY PLAYER

In 2004, the three-time Masters champions bought a dated-looking eight-bedroom, six-bathroom home on the Intracoastal Waterway.

It is Bermuda-style with its own cabana house, porticos and pergolas, and a three-car garage.

Covering 8,224 square feet, Player has completely renovated it from a 1960’s home to a modern residence.

That’s the least one of the game’s greatest ambassadors deserves.

BROOKS KOPKA

The former world No. 1 wasted no time in climbing the property ladder in a wealthy environment.

He got a bargain for his money – he spent £2.5million on this four bedroom, five and a half bathroom property on the outskirts of Jupiter.

The 3,900-square-foot site was built in 1993, but Koepka spent part of its £25m earnings on the refurbishment.

The Florida-born star completely replaced the swimming pool – enlarging it by using more land.

Koepka also remodeled the boat dock and installed a new fence for more privacy.
