Back in 2016, golf legend Greg Norman put his Colorado ranch up for sale. The property—11,601 acres in a National Forest—appeared with an asking price of $55 million. No buyer stepped forward, and the property vanished from the market, only to appear last year with an asking price of $50 million. Norman still has yet to receive an acceptable offer, so this month the ask was trimmed to $40 million.
The main house on the estate is a contemporary log cabin. It was built in the 1990s. Its interiors are extremely rustic, with grand expressions of craftsmanship—a massive fireplace in the living room, an ornate chandelier crafted from antlers. The sense of scale is, at times, breathtaking, with cathedral ceilings and massive banks of paned windows.
Interior amenities include a lounge with a wet bar, but the real amenities on the property are part and parcel of the broad variety of outdoor recreation and sport options represented on the estate. A full array of equestrian facilities—including a tack room, stables, and miles of riding trails—a skeet-shooting range, a fitness center, an outdoor spa, guest cabins, and a dance hall that was constructed in the late 19th century are a few of the attractions for the lover of the outdoors and for owner’s guests.
Aussie Norman—a.k.a. The Great White Shark—was number one on the links in the 1980s and 1990s. He launched a line of sportswear in the 1990s.
