Robert Griffin III has been known to get out on the links every now and then, but he might be playing a lot more golf in the near future.

The Washington Redskins quarterback has interrupted his injury rehab long enough to plunk down $2.5 million for a new house in the Creighton Farms golf course community in Aldie, Va., about 30 miles west of Washington, D.C. 

Griffin's new digs measure 9,000 square feet, and contain five bedrooms, four baths, two half-baths, a wet bar, an elevator and a mudroom, according to The Washington Business Journal, which added that the property was recently appraised at about $1.8 million.

The 900-acre Creighton Farms development is described as a high-end residential community featuring a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course. Later this year, it will host the Southworth Senior PGA Professional National Championship for the third straight season.
