'Spectacular' Golf Homes For Sale


"Top Ten Real Estate Deals," a self-described independent web site, is featuring what it considers America's 10 Most Spectacular Golf Homes.

Have a look here. Some are nicer than others. In a few, the decor will turn your stomach. But they're all on golf courses and they're all certainly ... big!

The least expensive one is asking a "mere" $3 million. Hint: It's the one in Colorado.

In reverse order, they are at the following clubs:

  1. Castle Pines (Castle Rock, Colo.)

  2. Bay Colony Golf Club at Pelican Marsh (Naples)

  3. Kapalua Resort (Maui). This one is Jim Furyk's home, the web site says.

  4. The Bear's Club (Jupiter, Fla.)

  5. TPC Las Vegas

  6. St. Andrews C.C. (Boca Raton)

  7. Big Canyon C.C. (Newport Beach)

  8. Paradise Valley C.C. (Paradise Valley, Ariz.)

  9. Pebble Beach G. Links

  10. Three Ponds (Bridgehampton, N.Y.)

The No. 1 house, which features a private, Rees Jones-designed course, sits on roughly 60 acres (pictured) in the Hamptons. The asking price is listed on Top Ten's site as "upon request" but I emailed the listing broker and got the number: $68 million.
