For those of us that didn't get to witness Michael Jordan play in the flesh, the 'Last Dance' docuseries offered many insights into what he's like as a bloke.
He was a serial winner, six-time NBA champion, a person that transcended basketball and he was the type of guy that liked holding onto the odd grudge here and there.
But on top of that, he also liked to live the high life.
A man with flashy sports cars and designer clothes off the court combined with a swagger and unparalleled belief in his own ability on it, MJ was the man that every young NBA fan wanted to be growing up.
But the public's desire to 'be like Mike' didn't stop when the Chicago Bulls legend finally retired (for the third or fourth time) in the early 2000s.
Incredibly, Jordan continued being just 'as cool' as he ever was.
And that swagger that dominated the basketball court for donkey's years slowly transitioned to the golf course - well, it's well documented that he played golf during his playing days too.
That's right, after hanging up the iconic Js, Jordan's interest quickly turned to relaxing by playing a few rounds of golf.
And when you've got the amount of cash in bank that MJ has, why not open your own golf course?
Well, that's exactly what he did.
In 2019, Jordan opened the The Grove XXIII in Florida.

Aside from the world class facilities and extravagant clubhouses, the course boasts another feature that has avid and pro golfers chomping at the bit to go down there and have a swing.
It turns out the course has flying drones that deliver food and alcoholic drinks to punters while they play.
That's right, Jordan personally requested that the course scraps the standard delivery method of using a golf buggy and replaces it with with drones for his exclusive members.
We're not sure whether it's to comply with COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, but it's a pretty impressive feature either way.
