Whether you’re an avid golfer looking to improve your handicap or simply love the look of an expansive, well-manicured green, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite homes situated on golf courses around the world. From a sophisticated, Old Hollywood-style estate on the prestigious Bel Air Country Club course to an historic residence overlooking the 18th green of Scotland’s infamous Old Course at St. Andrews, these six unique residences are above par.
One of the few properties that sits on the exclusive Bel Air Country Club golf course, this prestigious estate, represented by Kristin Regan, David Parnes, James Harris, and Mauricio Umansky, has been stunningly restored to its former Old Hollywood splendor with a stylish, contemporary feel. Perched above the 16th hole, the home features glamorous, grand-scale living spaces, with floor-to-ceiling pocket doors that open to expansive terraces within earshot of the 16th hole green. Expansive grounds include lighted trees, fire pits, lounge areas, a putting green and an exceptional swimming pool.
This nine-bedroom estate, situated atop a hill in the Fundadores Neighborhood of Puerto Los Cabos, is one of the most esteemed residences in the area. Listed by Mauricio Rivero and Bernardo Mucino Koenig and overlooking the Sea of Cortez, the Mediterranean-style residence combines luxurious living spaces with incredible outdoor areas for unparalleled entertaining. Among the home’s most unique offerings—which include a high-end gym, paddle tennis court and expansive, infinity-edge pool and spa—is a six tee, 18-hole chipping course, dubbed “the toughest half-acre in golf.” Featuring a stacked sand trap, meandering water hazard, and large green with six pin locations, it’s been known to challenge even the most experienced golfers—especially after a few too many margaritas on the poolside terrace.
If you’re a golf lover, it doesn’t get more iconic than The Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland, the birthplace of the game itself. And it doesn’t get more prestigious than Hamilton Grand, the historic residence overlooking The Old Course's 18th green. Originally built as the Grand Hotel in 1895, the distinctive collection of 26 luxury residences has undergone a complete renovation by The Kohler Company and boasts butler service for an incomparable living experience. Listed by Kathrin Nicholson and managed by the much-admired Old Course Hotel, the building features panoramic views of the West Sands Beach and Bay of St. Andrews from its rooftop terrace, and sits adjacent to the clubhouse of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club.
Showcasing swoon-worthy views from every room, this recently remodeled and refurbished resort-style compound, represented by Jason Galardi, boasts 13,089 square feet of living space, with commanding views of the mountains and 15th fairway of the Indian Wells Golf Course. Vanishing glass doors throughout the home open the living areas to sweeping outdoor areas, including a lanai, sun deck and pool, which serve as a natural extension of the interiors. Studded with picturesque palms and surrounded by the striking desert landscape, the home also includes two guest casitas.
Situated within The Citrus Club at La Quinta Resort and stunningly designed by Woody Argall, this three-bedroom home, listed by Gregg Fletcher and Richard Bartholomew, is surrounded by stunning mountain vistas and fairway views.
