Luxury Living: Medalist Country Club Estates And Spa
Imagine playing golf next to a pro like Greg Norman. Well, we may have found the next best thing. In tonight's Luxury Living report, Shireen Sandoval takes us on a tour of a new neighborhood with plenty of water, sand, and green.
(WSVN) -- He's known as "the shark" on the golf course, and now, golfer greg norman is taking a bite out of the real estate world.
This is the Medalist Country Club Estates and Spa, just off U.S. 1 in Hobe Sound.
Some homes are already built, but much of the development is still under construction.
Once its' complete, they'll be just 87 houses in the entire community.
Andrew Zuckerman from Medalist Country Club Estates & Spa says, "Here you have big lots, it's very quiet, very secluded, we're surrounded by 600 acres of nature preserve. This is one of our treatment rooms, our facial massage room."
And you just don't get the home, this luxury living package comes with membership to the spa and golf course.
Take your best shot at a hole in one on this par 3 golf course.
It was designed by Greg Norman himself.
The course winds around the preserve, which is so pristine, you never know what you'll see while you're out there.
If you don't like these greens, you can always head to greg norman's private country club, which sits right next door.
If golf's not your game, then work out in the fitness center...
Or relax at the luxury spa.
It was designed by Greg's wife, Laura.
Interior designer Laura Norman says, "A lot of people haven't been to australia since it's so far away and I was just trying to interpret that."
Laura also designed the restaurant and pub -- where everything from the decor to the beer has an aussie flavor.
Here you can grab a glass of fosters and sit back and relax on the big veranda.
Laura says, "A lot of the houses in Australia have the big veranda and they're up on stilts, that's the australian kind of housing or restaurants so I got my inspiration from that a little bit."
From the luxury spa... To the greens... They say membership has its' privileges, and this is no luxury living exception.
Andrew says, "From the homes themselves, to the location, to the facilities that are offered within each home, within the club, would make this absolute luxury."
The homes cost anywhere from $800,000 to close to $2 million dollars.
