Golfing Greats: Properties for Aspiring Rory McIlorys

A 25-year-old named Rory McIlroy just won the PGA Championship at Valhalla this past weekend (move over Tiger Woods!), and the sporting world is a buzz with talk of unofficially crowning a new “King of Golf.” With the final major of the season behind us, we felt it apropos to take a look at some of the greatest golf properties for sale and currently being marketed by Coldwell Banker Previews International®.  

15 Grand Regency Circle
The Woodlands, TX 77382

You can’t get any more great than a signature 17,000 square-foot estate on the 9th hole of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, Tex. What makes it even greater? It has full views of the 9th and 18th holes, the lake and the Clubhouse, plus a two-story guest house, golf house and over 3,000 square feet of outdoor spaces. We’ll refrain from making an easy “hole in one” reference here, but you get the picture. The estate is a clear winner.

3410 17 Mile Dr
Pebble Beach, CA 93953

There are precious few locations in the world that match a golfer’s idea of heaven, and Pebble Beach is one of them. This 2.4-acre estate might as well be its celestial counterpart: a near angelic location on the 12th green of the Pebble Beach Golf Links, ocean views from Carmel Beach to Point Lobos and Pescadero Point and an elegant 8,300 square-foot residence.

1928 Thatch Palm Drive
Boca Raton, FL 33432

Boca Raton is a place where your warm-weather routine consists mainly of golf and more golf. This newly constructed five-bedroom estate, facing east with panoramic views across three fairways of the Royal Palm golf course, offers the opportunity to enjoy all of the above amid the beauty created by interior designer Lesley Maxwell.

8543 Run Of The Knolls
San Diego, CA 92127

8543 Run of the Knolls_800px

The sunsets alone in this authentic Spanish Hacienda in San Diego County may be enough to convince you of its merits. However, this fact will make the golfer in you thoroughly green with envy: it also sits along the Rees Jones-designed Santaluz Golf Course and offers golf course views right out to the Pacific. 

5 Briar Lane
Glencoe, IL 60022


There is something inviting and downright stately about this Tudor mansion in Glencoe, Ill. Set on almost three acres of lush manicured lawn overlooking the magnificent golf course at the Skokie Country Club, the renovated mansion brings us back to a bygone era, where private recreation—tennis, swimming, golf—were the elite social activities of the day.

565 Perugia Way
Los Angeles, CA 90077

565 Perugia_800px

The view from this grand Bel Air estate says it all. And if it doesn’t, then consider this fact: the 11,027 square-foot estate overlooks the Bel Air Country Club, one of L.A.’s most prestigious country clubs. It also rests on the distinguished “Lower Perugia Way”—one of only 12 homes that front the golf course. A full putting green puts this home over the edge.

110 Cherry Hill Dr
Marietta, GA 30067

110 Cherry Hill Drive_Atlanta_800px

The greenery of this 6-bedroom masterpiece in Marietta, Ga. would give any golfer—amateur or professional—pause. Set on the 10th fairway and green of the Atlanta Country Club, the estate “wows” with its fully finished terrace, stone walkways and patios. We’d say it’s right on par with our idea of Southern golf course living.

53480 Del Gato Drive
La Quinta, CA 92253

Del Gato Back and  Pool Side View_800px

The Palm Springs area is renowned for its golf course lifestyle—and this exquisite desert home captures it to a tee. Its premier location in La Quinta’s coveted Tradition Golf Club offers enough amenities to soothe the golfer soul: exquisite views of the lush 12th fairway and an elevated homesite above the course to retain privacy.
