As play heats up at the Zozo Championship at Sherwood Country Club just outside Los Angeles, a Hall of Fame hockey star with plenty of ties to golf is looking to skip out of the neighborhood — for a second time.
Wayne Gretzky, father-in-law to World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, has put his mansion in Thousand Oaks back on the market for nearly $10 million more than he bought it for just three years ago.
Gretzky, the all-time leading goal scorer in the history of the National Hockey League, built the home with his actress/model wife Janet Jones back in 2002 and then sold the property to former Major League Baseball star Lenny Dykstra for $18.5 million in 2007.
Dykstra fell into debt and the home was auctioned off, it changed hands twice before Gretzky again purchased the property — this time for $13.5 million.

The going rate is now $22.9 million for the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom estate that includes a glamorous pool, tennis court and amazing views of Sherwood below.
According to the Los Angeles Times, “the grounds include an elegant Colonial-style home designed by Richard Landry, two guesthouses, a swimming pool, tennis court and entertainment area surrounded by rolling lawns and manicured gardens. … A motor court approaches the main residence, winding its way toward a porte-cochere entry lined with columns. Inside, shades of black and white fill formal spaces such as a chandelier-topped living room, marble kitchen, movie theater, billiards room and gym.”
The 13,000-square foot home comes with a hefty mortgage payment, and a hefty tax bill. Gretzky paid $144,016 in taxes on the estate in 2019.
