Jack Nicklaus to be neighbors with Robert Griffin III near D.C.


Welcome to Robert Griffin III's neighborhood, Jack Nicklaus.

Washington Business Journal reports Nicklaus has purchased a plot of land in the same Northern Virginia community where the Washington Redskins quarterback lives.

A 5,500-square-foot house is under construction on the property now. The home will have four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, located just off the ninth hole of the Nicklaus-designed Creighton Farms in Loudoun County.

Lots in the community can run in upwards of $1.3  million, according to the report, with homes valued as highly as $10 million.

The Nicklaus design opened in 2007, playing to a par of 72 and a max length of 7,410 yards. It's home to the PGA of America's Senior PGA Professional national championship in 2013 and '14, which is being played this week. (Hence the news.)

Nicklaus has been talking about taking up residence in the community for the last three years. With the house now under construction, the golf legend plans to move in next summer.
