When Raymond Floyd won the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills in 1986, he and his family took such a liking to the area, they built a home in nearby Southampton Village. Floyd became a member of Shinnecock Hills and considered it one of his top five courses.
Thirty-one years later, Floyd is looking for a buyer for his $25 million Hamptons estate known as “Mulligan.”
The 3.25-acre estate provides 14,000 square feet of living space and features 12 bedrooms, 12 full baths and three half baths throughout the main house and guest house.
A stately main house is appointed with covered porches and striped awnings, and surrounded by brick patios, fruit trees, flowering bushes and rolling green lawns, giving the feel of an elegant clubhouse at a country club (yet there is no golf practice area or putting green on the property). The recreational amenities include a heated swimming pool, a tennis court and a workout room.
Other features include a wine room, staff quarters, a butler’s pantry and a chef’s kitchen.
Floyd won four major championships in his career. He captured three legs of the career slam, missing only the Open Championship. He won 22 times on the PGA Tour and 14 times on the PGA Tour Champions. Floyd was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1989.
