Collecting sports memorbilla can be an expensive pastime. Tiger Woods’ backup putter recently went for $29,000, while an authentic green jacket from Augusta National sold for $140,000 this spring this year (and the coat didn’t even belong to a famous member). Keeping that figure in mind, the listed price for Rory McIlroy’s childhood home is a steal.
Located in McIlroy’s hometown of Holywood, this cozy abode has four bedrooms and is a close walk to many downtown amenities. More importantly, the residence is awash in evidence of the four-time major winner’s upbringing, as the property has an indoor hitting bay and outdoor putting green.
Better yet, the house is going for an extremely reasonable £239,950 (around $315,000). It’s an investment to get in on now, for, as the listing states, it’s the former home of “world class golfer” Rory McIlroy. Think how much this bad boy will go for once you can add “Grand Slam winner” to the title.
