Hall of Fame Golfer Raymond Floyd Lists Southampton House for $25 Million
The 10,000-square-foot Shingle-Style home has affectionately been dubbed “Mulligan” because it is owned by celebrated golfer Raymond Floyd. Alas, while the Captains Neck Lane compound encompasses 3.25 acres, there is no putting green. Not to worry, there’s a roomy pool and tennis court. And let’s not forget all the world-class courses a swing away.
The gracious estate is bursting with covered porches, brick patios, striped awnings, hydrangeas, specimen trees and rolling lawns. The 12-bedroom main abode offers mirrored gym, wine cellar, and living and dining rooms that open onto back porches overlooking the gardens teeming with fruit trees. There is a separate five-bedroom guest house. Staff quarters are perched over the garage.
Long retired, Floyd, 74, is considered one of golf’s greatest. The North Carolina native won 22 PGA tournaments, including four major championships. It was at the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills in 1986 that he and his wife, Maria, were charmed by the area and built their dream home. Floyd was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1989.
