Alabama head football coach Nick Saban purchases home among PGA TOUR stars

Renowned head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide football team, Nick Saban, has recently acquired a residence in Jupiter, Florida, marking his entry into the realm of golf elite. Saban, a six-time national championship winner, has secured a 6,200-square-foot property in one of the world's premier golf destinations.

This move places him in the company of golf legends such as Tiger Woods and Rickie Fowler, both of whom call Jupiter home. Saban's new abode, spanning 1.68 acres, was acquired for a sum of $17.5 million, according to reports from Front Office Sports. The property boasts picturesque vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, courtesy of its location on the scenic Jupiter Island.

Beyond his undying dedication to Alabama football, Coach Saban possesses a fervor for golf. He has demonstrated his support for golf sensation Justin Thomas and even took a break from his fall camp schedule to extend congratulations to fellow Crimson Tide alumnus Lee Hodges following his triumph at the 3M Open.

Having secured an eight-year contract extension worth a staggering $93.6 million in 2022, despite being 71 years old at the time, Saban remains the highest-paid coach in college athletics. While he shows no signs of slowing down in his coaching career, his newly acquired residence in South Florida might entice thoughts of eventual retirement.

With his eyes on the green, Saban is set to share tee times with illustrious Jupiter residents like Woods, Fowler, Rory McIlroy, and Patrick Cantlay, among others. Additionally, he might find a golfing foursome among peers of his generation who also reside in the area, such as Jack Nicklaus, Bernhard Langer, and Raymond Floyd.

As of now, it remains uncertain whether Saban will opt for membership at The Bear’s Club, Jupiter Hills Club, or The Medalist Golf Club, where his golfing neighbor Tiger Woods frequents. In a unique twist, Saban himself takes on the role of the highly sought-after five-star recruit, pondering his array of enticing golfing prospects.
