Rory McIlroy has closed on his purchase of a home on the Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., according to realtor Jeff Lichtenstein.

The 15,286 square-foot contemporary home sold for $9.5 million and features "a center glass core and window views everywhere throughout the house," Lichtenstein's blog says. It has six bedrooms, nine baths, a private gym and a putting green, but no tennis court on which his girlfriend, tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, can practice. It comes with a dock and room to park a yacht and is one mile from the Bear's Club, a Jack Nicklaus design in Jupiter.

McIlroy, 23, has put his home in Northern Ireland for sale. He is a member of both the PGA Tour and European Tour and led both in earnings in 2012.
