This magnificent estate commands more than nine acres near the historic Newport Country Club — one of the five founding clubs of the USGA and host of the inaugural U.S. Open golf championship in 1895. Built in 1933 by New York architectural firm Clinton & Russell, Ker Arvor was inspired by Pavillon de la Lanterne, the royal hunting lodge at the Palace of Versailles. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and includes a fully restored Neoclassical-style main residence, award-winning gardens and a pool, pool house and barn.

This contemporary residence overlooks the 9th hole of the Rees Jones-designed golf course at Kohanaiki, an invitation-only private members’ club and residential community on Hawaii’s Kona Coast. Designed by architect Shay Zak, the home combines classic Hawaiian architecture with an indoor-outdoor resort ambience. The lavish amenities include a master suite with a private garden, an infinity pool and spa and a barbecue area.

This elegant penthouse at the Bahamas’ Grand Isle Resort boasts panoramic views of Emerald Bay and the club’s 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Greg Norman. A private elevator takes residents to a stunning great room facing turquoise seas. The views are enjoyed throughout the 5,000-square-foot living spaces, which include four guest suites, a media room, wet bar, gourmet kitchen and private balcony. The residence is fully furnished throughout and comes with its own golf cart.

Old West building traditions meet Mid-Century Modern design at this contemporary mountain home on the 5th fairway of the Black Bull Golf Resort in Bozeman, Montana. The interior finishes include post-and-beam timbers, wide-plank oak floors, and a floor- to-ceiling double-sided fireplace. Outdoor highlights include a covered deck and a patio with log-burning fireplace, offering breathtaking views over a large pond to the Spanish Peaks and Tobacco Root Mountains. In addition to the Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course, residents enjoy access to the club’s outstanding sports and wellness facilities.

This beautiful coastal home borders the award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course in Monte Rei Golf & Country Club — one of the Algarve’s most exclusive resorts. Built with meticulous attention to detail, the two-story villa features grandly scaled interiors with eight bedrooms and five bathrooms. The residence is surrounded by more than half an acre of landscaped gardens with a pool, sundeck, and an alfresco dining area facing the fairways.
