According to numerous real estate sources in the Palm Beach Gardens area, Rory McIlroy has signed a contract to purchase a $10 million, 10,000-square-foot home in the Old Gate community of Jupiter across the street from the Bear’s Club where he is a member.

The home, built in 2012 and owned by developer Christian Demers, has six bedrooms, nine baths, a gym, backyard putting green and deepwater dock.

First reported by Jose Lambeit on his website, the home had a listing of $10.9 million and, according to Lambeit’s sources, Rory came "close" to that asking price.

The 23-year-old has already listed his home in Holywood, Northern Ireland, and has been renting a home on the Loxahatchee River for some time. He plays regularly at the Bear's Club, one of Nicklaus' most impressive designs and a favorite of tour players and celebrities such as Michael Jordan.

No word on whether Caroline Wozniaki will be settling in as well, but there will be plenty of room for her if she also makes the move.
