Home Full of Love


(ST. SIMONS ISLAND, GA) Want the best seat in the house when The McGladrey Classic, hosted by Davis Love III, kicks off November 16? Actually, you can have the whole house for a cool $5.1 million. Love’s secluded, five-acre marshfront estate, including his 10,253-square-foot plantation-style home, is up for sale. The home has served as the host venue for the McGladrey’s Pro-Am pairings party. (Maybe you can negotiate keeping that perk!) Beyond its enviable location close to Sea Island and the Cloister Hotel amenities, the estate is spectacular. Take a moment and watch a tour by drone to get a real sense of the privacy and secluded beauty of the place. Designed by renowned architect Lamar Webb, the home sits among live oak trees and palm trees and features postcard-perfect marsh views. An outdoor pool and fireplace, along with endless covered porches, are great places from which to enjoy the long-range views. Inside, you’ll find two fireplaces, a wine cellar, and a gun room. You’ll want to bring your horses, too. The 3,360-square-foot horse barn and stables, rival many a luxury home.  Even if you’re not in the market for one of the coast’s most incredible estates, it’s fun to kick the tires on the good life and get a peek at how top Tour pros live.

For the Kids


(BOCA RATON, FL) Golf and charity have had a long and generous relationship. At nearly every private golf community around the country, you’ll find a passion for fundraising among the membership. Nowhere was that more evident than at the 25th annual Best Ball Golf Tournament held recently at Boca West Country Club. Run by Florida’s Seminole Region of the Club Managers Association of America, the tournament raised about $600,000 this year. (Over the last quarter century, the group has raised millions for kids.) Teams representing country clubs, businesses and everyday golfers reserved a day to play as many holes as possible at one of several participating country clubs in the area with pledges made for each hole. Over $155,000 of this year’s total was donated by Marathon Golf, now in its fifth year as part of the charity tourney. The team from Addison Reserve Country Club was the top marathon money earner with over $22,000. Unbelievably, the most marathon holes played by a single golfer was 217 by Richard Chase of Wycliffe Country Club. All told, a total of 5,480 holes of Marathon Golf were played, with many golfers sinking their putts well into the night.

Shares of Paradise


(SEA ISLAND, GA) Easy-going, elegant, and impeccable, Sea Island has been a favorite of those seeking world-class amenities and uncomplicated privacy for the better part of a century. A favorite of PGA Tour pros, its private neighborhoods, expansive beaches and three championship courses make this one of the country’s top resorts, golf destinations and places to live. It’s also home to one of the most successful private residence programs. Located steps away from the Atlantic on the southern part of Sea Island, The Cloister Ocean Residences offer 22 fully-deeded, elegantly furnished, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences. Each quarter share purchased includes 13 weeks at one of the residences. Sea Island Club membership is included in the purchase price, along with resort services (room service, concierge, housekeeping and maintenance). And, of course, there are those three well-manicured golf courses, none of which have a blade of bumpy poa on their smooth-rolling greens.

U.S. Open Houses


(UNIVERSITY PLACE, WA) High definition TV is showing every fascinating detail of Chambers Bay this week. For those of us who are relegated to enjoying the images from our living rooms, we can take solace in the fact that we didn’t have to pay overinflated prices to rent a home for tournament week. Chambers Bay was never meant to accommodate the 30,000 or so folks who are turning out daily to attend the U.S. Open. There’s simply aren’t many available hotel rooms nearby. So the locals have taken a page from Augusta and made their homes available for lease for the week, with prices reaching upwards of $25,000, $35,000 and more. The Seattle Times reports that as far back as last summer two adjoining luxury homes were leased for about $67,000 for the tournament to a well heeled spectator. Kind of makes staying home and watching on TV all that more enjoyable.
