'Backyard' Golf Holes Golf Pads

LOOK: House with ridiculous backyard replica of TPC Sawgrass’ famed 17th hole goes on the market

By Alex Myers
A house with an incredible backyard replica of arguably the most famous par 3 in all of golf has hit the market. If you buy it, though, you’re probably going to need to purchase a lot of golf balls as well.

Have a look at 24717 W Caine Road in the Chicago suburb of Ingleside, Illinois. Or, rather, feast your eyes on its rendition of TPC Sawgrass’ 17th hole. And if you look closely, you can even see the traditional back-right Sunday pin at the Players Championship!

Absolutely spectacular. OK, so it doesn’t look like it plays quite as long as the real thing, but it’s still awesome.

There are five tee boxes and the owner has spent more than $100,000 on landscaping alone. So that $560,000 price tag doesn’t seem that bad — especially because you get six bedrooms in addition to the five tee boxes.
