Now he wants to splash out on a 50x16ft outdoor pool and timber climbing frame for three-year-old daughter Poppy after filing for divorce from wife Erica Stoll.

But he landed in hot water with officials at the local council as his home, on an exclusive estate, lies in a designated green belt area with stricter planning laws.

Mcllroy’s lavish home also boasts a grand entrance hall, six reception rooms, double aspect drawing room, family room, breakfast room, snug, study and office.

Land Registry records show that he and Erica bought the pad for £8.9million in January last year.

The Sun recently revealed that the star spent between £10m and £14m developing the property.

But the world number two has now filed for divorce from Erica, saying the marriage has “irretrievably broken”.

Documents filed in the US where the couple lived, showed the four-time major champ and Erica signed a pre-nuptial agreement before they wed in 2017.

They also revealed the couple had agreed to a “shared parental responsibility” for Poppy who was born in Florida.

Mcllroy, worth around £200million, was previously granted planning permission for a dining and utility room extension at his Surrey home, a new roof and internal alterations.

Officials at the local council have now given the go-ahead for the outdoor pool, play centre and 5ft-high water feature wall after there were no objections from neighbours.

Other famous residents who live nearby include footballers Harry Kane and Andriy Shevchenko, former cricketer Kevin Pietersen and fitness guru Joe Wicks.

Inside the love life of gold superstar Rory McIIroy

The golf superstar’s love split has sent shockwaves through the world of sport, but what is his romantic profile to date?

Rory McIIroy enjoyed a much publicized romance with former tennis world number Caroline Wozniacki before they split in 2014

The following year the golf champ then began dating the American sports administrator Erica Stoll, having first met back in 2011. Erica often interacted with players through her role as the manager of championship volunteer operations.

Soon the pair were spotted on several dates together in Rochester New York and got engaged after just a few months of dating.

In 2017 they married in a lavish ceremony in Ashford Castle in Ireland, before welcoming baby Poppy in 2020.

The Northern Irishman went to great lengths to keep their relationship out of the public eye, but after seven years together they have filed for divorce, in a move that has blind-sided the golfing community.
