“Someone likely will get this championship golf course and property for a song,” Jim Halfhill, of Rector-Hayden, Realtors, said. “The minimum bid requirement is amazingly low considering the property has had more than $7 million in improvements."
Lexington, KY (PRWEB) March 4, 2010
It opened in grand style with an exhibition match between PGA Tour professionals and now Mahan Manor Golf and Hunt Club is available for sale. The dream project of Bart Mahan, founder and former owner of Buggies Unlimited, will be auctioned April 13 due to his decision to retire.
“Someone likely will get this championship golf course and property for a song,” auctioneer Jim Halfhill, of Rector-Hayden, Realtors, said. “The minimum bid requirement is amazingly low, especially considering the property has had more than $7 million in improvements. In addition, plans are available for adding an additional 9 holes.”
Halfhill said potential buyers don’t have to take his word for the quality of the golf course and amenities; it was praised by two PGA golfers who played an exhibition match on opening day last fall.
“It’s a top-notch and first-class place,” Kentucky native J.B. Holmes said. “It looks really good.”
Crowd pleaser and long ball hitter John Daly added, “This is just great.”
Central Kentucky is known for its unique geography—karst formations, plentiful streams, rolling hills and palisades. Mahan Manor includes samples of all of these and was important in Kentucky’s settlement and early industry development. The inclusion of Lower Howard’s Creek in the property adds to its historical and natural significance.
The beautifully situated 230-acre estate is divided into four tracts, each having road frontage on Quisenberry Lane in western Clark County, Kentucky, eight miles from I-75.
The first tract includes 205 acres with a 9-hole championship golf course, 3,500 sq. ft. log cabin clubhouse, new golf cart barn, renovated maintenance equipment barn, five ponds, renovated rock fences, historic “factory bottom” section of Lower Howard’s Creek, octagon hunting tree house and more.
The second tract has five acres with an exit gate and some exit road. The third tract has nine acres with a 2,000 sq. ft. reproduction log home, tool shed, and a renovated cattle barn. The fourth tract has 11 acres and offers several good building sites.
The seller’s published reserve is only $1.5 million. At the auction, the seller will accept the highest bid equal to or greater than the published reserve. The auction property is subject to prior sale and pre-auction offers are invited. Prior to the live, onsite auction, the property is offered in its entirety at $4.9 million.
