Mountain Marvel


(PARK CITY, UT) How does one do justice to a highly acclaimed course in a spectacular mountain setting? A daunting task, but the folks at Promontory have managed to pull it off. The newly unveiled Nicklaus Course Clubhouse, that goes with their Jack Nicklaus Painted Valley Signature golf course, is a stunner. (No surprise there, the same design team created the private mountain community’s award-winning Shed Clubhouse.) The distinctive 16,000-sq. ft. golf clubhouse offers breathtaking views of course, but it is the views of the modern clubhouse that are getting lots of attention. Cutting edge architecture by John Sather of Swaback Partners in Scottsdale, Ariz., combines stone, glass and steel to fashion a quintessential icon for Promontory. Spacious dining decks overlooking the 18th green of the Nicklaus course offer both sunny and shaded dining choices – all with panoramic vistas across golf course and lakes, toward Deer Valley’s Bald Mountain. Interiors by Vallone Design, also of Scottsdale, create a luxurious and modern atmosphere in rich, handsome textures and a palette of pewter, taupe and azure hues. A new restaurant in the clubhouse, The Peak, will offer a menu of inspired cuisine with an Asian influence. Signature and classic cocktails from the 1930s, 40s and 50s will be featured, complemented by striking contemporary interiors. You’ll want to take one of those cocktails out on the expansive decks to enjoy those views.

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.
