PGA golfer Dustin Johnson, who has made over $5.2 million on tour for the year, has purchased a waterfront home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., for $4.95 million.
Fronting the Intracoastal Waterway, the Mediterranean-style home has a resort-like vibe with three ocean-view balconies, a covered patio and a swimming pool with a waterfall and grotto. A wood-plank walkway runs through the dense forest of a private islet to a wide dock and palapa-topped bar.
Within nearly 8,200 square feet of space is a living room with double-height ceilings, an insulated wine room and a family room with custom wet bar. A master suite with a two walk-in closets is among five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.
Johnson, 31, has 11 career wins on the PGA Tour, most recently besting J.B. Holmes by one stroke at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March. He is engaged to Paulina Gretzky, daughter of hockey great Wayne Gretzky.
