Do you love golf and so much disposable income you don't know what to do with it?
First, congrats. We're insanely jealous.
Second, if you're looking to spend some of that money, we've dug up nine incredible homes near world-famous golf courses that are currently on the market.
If you're house hunting, check this out.
9. 3225 Wheeler Rd, Augusta, Ga.
List price: $1,699,000
Details: 6 beds; 6 full, 3 half baths; 9,900 sq ft; 1.63 acres lot
The most modest in size -- and price -- that you'll find on this list, the reason we love this home is because of its proximity to Augusta National Golf Club. That counts for something.
8. 133 Flyway Dr, Kiawah Island, SC 29455
List price: $22,000,000
Details: 9 beds; 9 full, 1 half bath; 10,500 sq ft; 2.07 acres lot
Home to the Ocean Course, which has played host to a Ryder Cup and a PGA Championship, Kiawah Island truly is a slice of heaven for the entire family.
7. 7 Olde Town Ln, Southampton, NY
List price: $29,900,000
Details: 10 beds; 10 full, 5 half baths; 17,400 sq ft; 174240.0 acres lot
Shinnecock Hills, Sebonack and National Golf Links are just three of the ridiculous golf courses you'll find in this area of the country.
6. 9 Old Towne Ln, Southampton, NY
List price: $39,500,000 (recently reduced)
Details: 10 beds; 9 full, 3 half baths; 15,500 sq ft; 174240.0 acres lot
There's nothing better, the wealthy say, than summer in the Hamptons. In a place like this, we could quickly adjust to life in the Hamptons too.
5. 203 Plantation Club Dr, Lahaina, Hawaii
List price: $15,000,000
Details: 8 beds ; 8 full, 1 half baths; 13,083 sq ft; 6.83 acres lot
Imagine, just under 7 acres of Maui -- with a palace -- just for you. Does it get any better?
4. 3 Kapalua Pl, Lahaina, Hawaii
List price: $20,880,000
Details: 6 beds; 6 full, 1 half baths; 6,631 sq ft; 0.64 acres lot
One of only four beachfront homes in Kapalua. This Maui gem features "breathtaking views of Molokai, the breaching whales and the Oneloa Bay shore breaks."
3. 3164 Palmero Way, Pebble Beach, CA 93953
List price: $17,495,000
Details: 6 beds; 5 full, 1 half bath; 8,000 sq ft; 2.75 acres lot
Stunning? Yes. We'd live there in a second. But, it's not even close to our favorite near Pebble Beach. Those are coming.
2. 3290 17 Mile Dr, Pebble Beach, CA 93953
List price: $49,888,000
Details: 5 beds; 5 full, 2 half baths; 8,862 sq ft; 2.02 acres lot
From the overview, "Privately situated on Pescadero Point and a short stroll to The Lodge, this landmark home is one of 31 rarely available water front properties in Pebble. This iconic Pebble Beach ocean front estate offers stunning views from every room of the Pebble Beach Golf Links, Carmel Bay and Beach, Carmel Valley, and Point Lobos." Sold.
1. Undisclosed address, Pebble Beach, CA 93953
List price: $37,900,000
Details: 8 beds; 9 full, 2 half bath; 11,903 sq ft; 9.08 acres lot
OK, so the address is undisclosed, but if you're wondering just how close it is to Pebble Beach, check out the view in the photo from the back porch... that would be the famed par-3 seventh hole. Lord, what it would be like to have your morning coffee looking out at that every day. The house is amazing, but -- if I had $38 mil to spend, I'd take a tent in that location just for the view. It's that logic that will prevent me from ever having that much money unless I hit the lottery.
