Jasna Polana, a Polish phrase generally translating to “bright meadow,” is a private club and mansion constructed as a 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.

“Jasna Polana boasts an immense history, from its ties to the Piasecka Johnson family to its role in professional golf as a past host of the PGA Tour Champions and the classic Wonderful World of Golf match between Tom Watson and Hal Sutton,” Jordan Peace, senior vice president of corporate development at Concert Golf, said. “We are extremely selective about the clubs we add to our portfolio, and we are honored to be the new stewards of this world-class club. Our mission is to preserve and enhance great private clubs, while honoring their culture and traditions in new and exciting ways.”

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.
