Grove XXIII

Grove XXIII is a private golf course located in Hobe Sound, FL. The Clubhouse is located at the center of a private golf club – specifically designed for the owner’s style and speed of play. The design concept for the Clubhouse was born from movement: the swing of a golf club.

The Main clubhouse consists of 15,000 sf of men’s and women’s lockers, indoor and outdoor lounge areas, a retail shop and kitchen/dining facilities. Golf Car storage and back of house space will be below grade.

Owner: Michael Jordan

Don Wolfe, principal at NBWW states: “We wanted the precision and flow of the golf swing as well as Michael’s athleticism and corporate finesse to inspire the contemporary form and detailing of the Clubhouse architecture.”

After judging a design competition, Michael Jordan and his team awarded the project to NBWW.

Design Concept

The curved design is based on the gentle yet precise motion of a golf swing, as seen in the floor plan.

The golf swing is a challenging maneuver which requires extreme precision. Body position, hand-eye coordination, mechanics, practice, power, and accuracy. All must come together in order to have a successful swing.

There is an inherent beauty in the natural curve the golf swing portrays. The building partii is born from this simple curve.

Sophisticated precision in the detailing create a rich architectural vocabulary enhancing the overall vision.
