For golf lovers, this $15 million listing in Augusta, GA, is a true stroke of good fortune. The Baron Club—built as a corporate retreat for golf aficionados—is now available to any duffer who can put up the cash.
The property is located just a 3-iron away from the Augusta National Golf Club, home of the fabled Masters Tournament.
The Colonial-style, 11,565-square-foot “corporate hospitality” property offers all the comforts and amenities of a private residence. However, it’s truly designed to accommodate discriminating golfers or business associates on a pilgrimage to this golf mecca.
Each of the 12 bedroom suites comes with a number and bears the name of a legendary golfer. And there’s no need to cram your clubs into your bedroom—there’s a corresponding golf locker for each suite in the home’s locker room.
And that’s just the main residence. There are also six guest cottages on the property, for a total bedroom tally of 30!
Back in the main house, there’s a beautiful lounge/bar area and a grand banquet dining room where guests can toast and boast about a successful day on the links.
To feed the masses, there’s an industrial kitchen on the premises along with a 1,121-bottle wine cellar to slake their thirst.
“It was built by the owner to entertain friends, family, and business colleagues during Masters week,” says listing agent Venus Griffin of Meybohm Real Estate. For the other 51 weeks of the year, the home is used for corporate meetings.
Griffin is familiar with all of the property’s luxe features—her husband’s company, Kuhlke Construction, built it.
“Every detail is perfect,” she says. They include heated mirrors in the bathroom (which don’t fog), leathered marble countertops, and TVs discreetly hidden behind artwork.
A grand staircase greets guest when they enter, and they can then glide on into a paneled living room filled with plush furniture in relaxing tones. As a bonus for the buyers: The tastefully selected furniture is included in the sales price.
There are elegant coffered ceilings, and wood floors run throughout, including under the carpet inlays.
And if you’re not up for a day on the links, there are other entertainment options. Namely, a multilevel infinity pool and spa out back, with an adjacent pergola and dining facilities. An in-wall fireplace and massive HD television complete the outdoor facilities.
And if professional life beckons, the Baron Club offers an executive conference room and an office.
The Baron Club is so perfect for corporate events, Griffin says, a number of hotels have shown interest in the property.
And yes, professional golfers have admired the home, although nondisclosure agreements prohibit Griffin from mentioning names. We’ll keep you posted on who winds up holding court in these elite halls.
