For some people, golf is simply an occasional diversion; for others, it’s an all-consuming hobby that borders into a full-time occupation. Forget pools, gyms, and movie theaters: If the second description best fits you, a home with a putting green couldn’t be more apt. And, it’s not as hard to find as you may think. From Ireland and Hong Kong to the Hamptons in New York and Orange County, California, we’ve rounded up seven homes below where the putting green is the ultimate amenity.
