With the Masters Tournament starting in Augusta on April 6, Christie’s International Real Estate presents 5 homes just a pitch-and-run away from great golf courses around the world
Pevero Golf Club, designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones and considered one of the world’s most beautiful courses, continues to attract jet-set golfers from across the globe. The nearby La Tiara di Cervo resort, still under development, includes an exceptional array of villas and penthouses constructed of San Giacomo granite and marble. Residences overlook a protected natural park filled with olive trees and juniper, and feature such amenities as underground parking, landscaped gardens and a bespoke concierge service.
Overlooking the 11th hole of a pine and palmetto-lined course designed by Jack Nicklaus, built around native brush, wetlands and lakes, this home blends Tuscan architecture into a sublimely restful environment. Highlights include an elevator, wine cellar, saltwater pool and spa, billiards room and a guesthouse. The home is even supplied with its own golf cart.
Royal Dornach is one of the world’s most venerable clubs — golf has been played on its links since the 1600s, while the club itself was established in 1877. This property overlooks the course and the Dornoch Firth, with the clubhouse and an award-winning beach both just a short stroll away. Large seaward-facing windows and decks enhance the entertainment spaces, while a fitness room and sauna further enhance this spacious and superbly situated home.
Chapelco, in the heart of Patagonia, is the first course in Latin America to have been designed by Jack Nicklaus, who won The Masters a record six times. This contemporary home offers soaring vistas of five fairways and is finished inside and out with Patagonian materials, such as local stone and beech wood, and set on multiple levels, respecting the natural flow of the land.
Winston Churchill, Dwight Eisenhower and the Duke of Windsor have played the famed Mid Ocean Club in Bermuda. From its elevated location Roughill overlooks the 14th hole, with views of the turquoise ocean beyond. The cherry-wood kitchen is a gourmet’s delight, while the bar is inspired by New York’s Waldorf Astoria. A putting green, pool complex, games room and entertaining spaces further complement the estate.
