A $68 million Bridgehampton estate has been dethroned from its No.1 spot on the list of the Top Ten Most Luxurious Golf Homes. The home’s private PGA-rated 18-hole golf course designed by Rees Jones earned the property the top spot in 2009, but was not enough to keep it there: it dropped to a humbler fifth place on the 2010 list, which published this month to coincide with the PGA Masters Tournament.

The property was edged out by homes in Hawaii, Texas, Georgia and California because those properties are all located in places with warmer climates that offer more golf days and because homes with more modern styling got extra points this year.

Despite this stumble in stature, the price hasn’t budged; the 60-acre estate still has plenty to offer. “It’s the only private golf course for sale in the Hamptons,” says Harald Grant of Sotheby's International Reality, who is co-listing the property with Michael Conroy and Susan Breitenbach of The Corcoran Group. The pond-front property includes a Gunite pool with a pool house, two three-car garages and a two-story pro-shop with a golf club upstairs featuring a bar and a bathroom. There also is a three-bedroom guesthouse with 3 ½ bathrooms.

The 20,000-square-foot, two-story Mediterranean-style main house has five fireplaces. There are eight bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
