Several former PGA Tour golfers have recently put their homes on the market.
Are things getting that bad in the golf industry? Ben Crenshaw has just listed his house in Austin, TX, for a more modest $5.7 million. Greg Norman’s home is nothing short of spectacular and has a total of 8 acres of land. Extravagant, I know, but as one of golf’s most successful players and businessmen, he certainly deserves it. Be sure to go to the link below to see some of the beautiful pictures of the house, inside and out. Thanks to Allen Etzler of Golfweek for exposing us to a world we don’t often see!
It already has been a busy year in golf real estate, and Greg Norman joined the party by putting his estate on the market for a whopping $55 million.
You read that right.
Norman bought the 8-acre estate in Jupiter Island, Fla., in 1991 for $4.9 million, according to the property appraisal records, and its most recent appraisal notes the total value has increased to slightly less than $22 million.
The estate contains seven buildings that add up to about 26,000 total square feet and comes with a putting green, a gym, a game room, a tennis pavilion and court, and even a two-bedroom, two-bath guest cottage that is right on the water.
The main residence is a four-bedroom, 7 1/2-half bath that was built in 1902 with a large kitchen, wet bar, game room, wine storage and home theater.
You know, everything you would expect a $55 million house to have.
Here are some photos of the property:
