At Michael Jordan’s members-only golf club in Florida, His Airness is delivering drinks and snacks to players on the course via, appropriately enough, the air.

At the Grove XXIII in Hobe Sound, food and drink orders are delivered to players on the 18-hole course via drones.

Opened in the fall of 2019 and named for the No. 23 jersey Jordan wore with the Chicago Bulls, the Grove XXIII has fewer than 100 members who have all been personally invited to join, according to Golf.com.

“The course was unbelievable,” NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin told USA Today after playing the course in February. “There’s only 75 members. Hopefully to be 76 here in the next few weeks, so it was really an honor to be invited and be a member at such an exclusive place. It’s really new, just a few months old. It’s going to be fun to do for the next 20 to 30 years, as long as I’m able to play.”

Designed by NBWW architectural firm, the Grove XXIII’s state-of-the-art clubhouse has more than 15,000 square feet of locker room space, as well as room for lounging, dining areas and a pro shop.
