Professional golfers are hurting right now. Between Pro V1 inflation and the rising cost of courtesy car petrol, it’s tough to make ends meet while earning multiple millions of dollars a year playing the leisure sport for a living.
Some pros – like four-time Major winning Nike/Michelob athlete Brooks Koepka – have turned to LIV Golf’s to stay afloat, but others are choosing a more traditional path. Take for instance, Vijay Singh, who has put his $US23 million ($A34 million), 16.5-hectare (51-acre) Hawaiian oceanfront estate up for sale. Let’s take a tour, shall we?
Before we do, here’s a brief realtor’s description of the mammoth property on the Big Island of Hawaii. “For the discriminating buyer who seeks exclusivity, luxury, privacy, and security, this 51-acre gated, fully fenced estate, with nearly a mile of oceanfront, offers a singular opportunity on the Hamakua Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii.”
The 2000 Masters champ Singh has never been one for subtly, and the driveway makes that point from the jump, winding toward the Pacific like some sort of Big Island Magnolia Lane.
That, inevitably, ferries weary travellers to Casa Singh, which sits perched on a secluded chunk of island greenery.
Stepping inside, the foyer is adorned with Hindu art, imbuing a sense of calm (even if Vijay’s infamous workouts don’t).
And a living room, obviously.
Best of all, views from the ocean can be had from virtually every vantage point, including the second-floor lanaiawaiian name for a balcony or porch) …
A backyard pool…
