Golf Properties For Sale

Have a look at these two golf properties currently on the market...

Bubba Watsons House

2012 Masters Tournament champion Gerry Lester “Bubba” Watson, Jr., just finished up a great weekend and an exciting month as well. According to Forbes, the 33 year old Masters champion is selling his home. Watson and his wife purchased their waterfront home in North Carolina for $1.1M back in 2009, and recently put the lake house on the market in February for $1.45M. The couple are not only selling the home, but the furnishings are negotiable as well. In addition to listing their home, a few weeks ago Watson and his wife Angie adopted their little one-month-old boy, Caleb.

Watson’s contemporary 3 story waterfront home on High Rock Lake includes roughly 6,500 sq-ft of living space with 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and is located on a private and gated 0.66 acres. The home features 2 indoor kitchens, a private den, Master Suite with huge walk-in closet, custom stonework/slate, steam shower, and a detached 3 car garage with living quarters above it. There’s also an entertaining area outside the main house with a full outdoor kitchen and stainless steel appliances, heated salt water pool and spa, an outdoor fireplace and TV, a floating aluminum pier, boat house, dock, covered boat lift, and double jet ski dock.

Pebble Beach Golf Property

1.1 acre, 185 feet golf course frontage, ready to build home site
Sealed bid May 3, 2012

Racebrook Marketing Concepts, and its auction affiliate Sheldon Good have announced the sale one of the most desirable resort properties in the world -- a spectacular, ocean view, development-ready home site in Pebble Beach, California that directly fronts the Pebble Beach Golf Links.  Previously named by Golf Digest as the No. 1 course in America, and host to the 2012 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and five U.S. Open golf championships, Pebble Beach Golf Links is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful courses in the world.

This exclusive home site is one of only 34 properties that directly front the Pebble Beach Golf Links. Properties on the golf course rarely change hands, thus the sale of this vacant parcel represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a discerning buyer to build a custom home in one of the most elite locations within Pebble Beach. Previously priced at US$12,000,000, the home site will be offered and sold via a sealed bid format with a Minimum Bid price of US$7,950,000. The deadline for bids is May 3rd, 2012.

For only the second time in 93 years, this unique property has come to the market for sale. It was formerly owned by a Yale classmate and fraternity brother of Samuel F. B. Morse, the original developer of Pebble Beach.  The home site is located three houses south of where Bing Crosby lived.  Situated along the par three, 12th hole, the 1.1-acre (0.445-hectare) parcel features 185 feet of golf course frontage, and stunning views that overlook the lush landscape of the 11th and 12th greens. The parcel is bordered by one of the country’s most scenic stretches of road, 17-Mile Drive, and offers magnificent views of Carmel Bay, Point Lobos and the Pacific Ocean.

“Homeownership along the Pebble Beach Golf Links is highly valued and the opportunity to build a custom home in the area is virtually unheard of. Since the land is being sold at a significantly reduced price, a buyer can attain this singular opportunity through a smart investment and in the process gain entryway into one of the most exclusive communities in the world,” said John Cuticelli, CEO of Sheldon Good & Company.

Pebble Beach is located on the Monterey Peninsula, one of the most dramatic, scenic areas in the nation.  Minutes away from Monterey Airport, which services commercial and private aircraft, and only a 1.5-hour drive from the San Francisco bay area and the Silicon Valley, Pebble Beach has become a top destination resort. The area has a rich history dating back to the 1836 Rancho Pescadero Mexican land grant. In 1892, construction began on the 17-Mile Drive. Stretching through Monterey and Carmel, the road hugged the Pacific Coast past Pacific Grove and the famous Lone Cypress Tree, meandering through Pebble Beach. In the ensuing years, Pebble Beach has grown into a playground for the business and cultural elite with its luxury hotels, world-class spa and resorts, premium retail shops, gourmet restaurants, and prestigious golf courses.

The Pebble Beach Golf Links has been ranked among the top-10 in Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses,” Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 Courses in the World,” and National Geographic’s “Top Ten Golf Courses.” Designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, the 18-hole course provides wide-open ocean vistas, cliff side fairways and sloping greens. The Pebble Beach area is home to other premiere golf courses including the Cypress Point Club,  the Monterey Peninsula Country Club, with its Dunes Course and Shore Course, Tehama Golf Club, the Preserve Golf Club, Spyglass Hill, Poppy Hills, and the Links at Spanish Bay

Pebble Beach hosts numerous cultural events that attract participants from around the country including: the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, considered the nation’s premier auto show focusing on classic cars; the Pebble Beach Food & Wine Festival--an epicurean lifestyle event that brings together internationally acclaimed wineries and celebrity chefs; and The First Tee Open--a 54-hole golf event featuring Champions Tour players that benefits local charities.

To the immediate south of Pebble Beach lies Carmel, a quaint, seaside town offering art galleries, shops, spectacular white sand beaches, and a rich artistic history.

Bids are to be delivered to Racebrook Marketing Concepts, Attn: Pebble Beach Project Manager, 488 Madison Avenue, Suite 201, New York, NY 10022, USA by 2 PM EDT, May 3rd, 2012. For additional information on the auction and to view the property by appointment, call (800) 516-0014 or visit
