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.


The golf swing is a challenging manoeuvre 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.

Inspired by the gentle yet precise motion of a golf swing

“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.”

Designed and built with perforated carbon fiber and glass frit panels, this precisely detailed cladding system adds a level of refinement and sophistication to the overall façade composition.

In the design of the clubhouse there are subtle gestures that are essential to the aesthetic and imply similar athleticism. The ground floor, with its contiguous slab that cantilevers towards the golf course, seems to hover over the green and creates an impression that mimics the endless “hang time” that Michael Jordan owned.
