Charlotte Bobcats basketball team owner, hoops legend and ho-hum golfer Michael Jordan just planted a flag next to the seventh hole of the posh Peninsula Golf Club of Cornelius, N.C.

The Jordan Family Gift Trust put down $2.8 million dollars for a 12,310 square foot lakefront foreclosure property, according to The Associated Press. The mansion located on a secure tip of a small peninsula has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms and windows overlooking an inlet of Lake Norman.

The 50-year-old six-time National Basketball Association Finals MVP who still holds two NBA scoring average records also owns a condo near this team 22 miles away in Charlotte. Last year he also dropped $12.8 million for a 28,000 square foot palace on Jupiter, Fla. —chump change for a former superstar athlete worth at least $500 million, and maybe more.
