Nicklaus, RGIII are soon-to-be neighbors in Virginia

October 9, 2013

Jack Nicklaus, Robert Griffin III It's a beautiful day in at least one Virginia neighborhood. CBS DC reported that golf legend Jack Nicklaus is contstructing a house in Creighton Farms, the same Aldie, Va., community where Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III purchased a $2.5 million home in May.

Construction has begun on a 5,500-square-foot home that’s been specially designed by the 73-year-old golfer and his wife, Barbara … which will allow them to keep a watchful eye on Nicklaus’ signature golf course, also located in the community … [His home] will be positioned just off the ninth hole.
