RORY McILROY has come a long way from his humble childhood home in Belfast.

In August 2017, McIlroy moved to the golf capital of the world: Jupiter.

He bought a £8.5 million mansion at The Bear’s Club, a golf club founded by Jack Nicklaus in 1999 and located 85 miles north of Miami.

It came just a few short months after he married Erika Stoll in a lavish wedding in Ireland.

And the luxury property was in known hands before McIlroy, formerly owned by Ernie Els.

The incredible neighborhood has been home to basketball legend Michael Jordan, tennis royalty Serena and Venus Williams, and fellow golfers Luke Donald, Michelle Vee and Els.

EL PILLOWS

And somehow, McIlroy managed to get even more bathrooms.

The huge property spans 12,800 square feet and boasts seven bedrooms and TEN bathrooms.

Huge balcony at the back of the house overlooks the quiet pool.

McIlroy has everything a young multimillionaire could want inside: a recording studio, game room, giant swimming pool and home theater.

But it’s far from where he grew up.

FAMILY HOUSE

Parents Jerry and Rosie raised McIlroy in the family’s four-bedroom home in Holywood, Northern Ireland.

Jerry adapted it to the dream of a young novice golfer.

A trampoline could be found in the garden, but it was hidden behind a giant driving range.

Step into the garage and 2014 Open champion McIlroy has his very own golf simulator.

Jerry’s father turned the space into a studio where the curly-haired young McIlroy could study his swings and ball shots via two televisions connected to the system.

And when he wanted to put it into practice, Hollywood golf was only 20 minutes away from home.

FIRST BUYER

When McIlroy moved out of the family home, it wasn’t a typical first-buyer property.

McIlroy bought Robinhall House in Maniri, County Down, which is now worth around £3.2 million.

Now there was no need for a golf simulator as McIlroy had his own driving range, putting green and a huge driving range with seven bunkers on a 14 acre property.

During the downtime, there was a cinema, an outdoor hot tub, a lake with 1,200 trout, and a full-size tennis court where he could play with then-girlfriend and former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki.

McIlroy sold the estate in 2013 for £2.5 million when he flew to America.

THE AMERICAN DREAM

McIlroy’s move to the US allowed the four-time winner to indulge in a stunning Florida mansion.

The £9.5 million site at Palm Beach Gardens had six bedrooms, a gym, an outdoor pool and, of course, putting green.

The spacious living room led to a relaxing patio with sofas located by the pool.

The mansion was designed in such a way that the water met the wall of the house and flowed towards the water feature.

Among NINE The bathrooms are the master bedroom bathroom with a jacuzzi in the center of the room.

The private gym had a full weight section, a bike, a treadmill, and a huge TV screen on a wall-to-wall mirror.

McIlroy could relax in the game room with a pool table that had massive sliding doors leading to the pool.
