An 18-hole golf course and iconic clubhouse on 222 acres in Princeton, the Jasna Polana Golf Club (a Polish phrase generally translating to “Bright Meadow”) is on the market, according to a Thursday announcement from Cushman & Wakefield, which was retained on an exclusive basis to sell the property.
Cushman & Wakefield will be accepting bids for the property located at 4519 Province Line Road on Oct. 25.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Matt Davis, Andy Merin, Gary Gabriel, David Bernhaut and Ryan Dowd are leading marketing efforts on behalf of the seller.
“We have already received immense interest in the distinguished Jasna Polana Golf Club from a diverse group of investors, including golf course owners and operators, residential developers, hospitality groups and high net worth individuals,” Davis, senior director and platform leader for Cushman & Wakefield’s Land Advisory Group, said. “With more than 100 confidentiality agreements already signed, the range of investors interested in this best-in-class property is truly impressive and we are excited to begin accepting bids for the asset on Oct. 25.”
The private golf club and mansion was originally constructed as a private residence in 1975 by architect Wallace Harrison. The regulation-length private golf course is complemented by a 46,000-square-foot clubhouse that provides members and guests with first-class amenities.
“Our team’s exceptional ability to navigate intricate sales processes across a range of asset types, including the successful sale of four golf courses in this region prior to the pandemic, makes us well-positioned to market the Jasna Polana Golf Club for sale. This property is a staple in the Princeton community and it’s incredible to witness the diverse interest in this cherished asset, which can continue to operate under new ownership as-is or be repositioned for other uses,” Merin, C&W’s executive vice chairman, said.
The modern, multilevel clubhouse includes a travertine room, dining facilities, an oak room, a wine cellar and locker rooms. The upper level features a 2,500-square-foot one-bedroom suite with a library, private wet room, marble jacuzzi and sauna. The property also benefits from on-site pro shops, a gated entrance with a fountain, an outdoor patio, a tennis court, event space and a garden with a reflecting pool. Additionally, the property is improved by a practice putting green, a driving range, a short game practice area, private parking and two private lodges that offer 16 bedrooms for overnight accommodations.
Designed by legendary architect Gary Player, the course features meticulously manicured fairways, challenging greens and picturesque landscapes, providing members an exclusive and high-quality golfing experience. The property is situated in a serene and picturesque setting within Princeton, offering a tranquil escape from the bustling city life. Nestled amid lush greenery and rolling landscapes, the club enjoys a secluded and private ambiance, providing members and guests with a peaceful retreat.
