This Legendary Golf Pro’s Colorado Ranch Could Be Yours for $50,000,000

Most people know that your dollar goes further in depending on what part of the county you’re in. So, it’s interesting to take a look at how much house you can get for your money depending on where you’re shopping. $50,000,000 is definitely a hefty price tag, but in crowded Beverly Hills, that “only” gets you one acre — barely enough space for the tennis court, swimming pool, and guest house. Why not invest that money more wisely. Like, say, a secluded property of 11,600 acres complete with 2 miles of riverfront, several lakes and ponds, a working ranch with 150 head of cattle, endless trails for horseback riding (horses included), and a sporting clay course. All that and we haven’t even gotten to the house yet.

Pro golfer Greg Norman and his wife, Kirsten Kutner, have put their property Seven Lakes Ranch on the market for a sweet $50,000,000. Seven Lakes is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true. Located in Meeker, Colorado, the property offers pristine wilderness, stunning views, and countless opportunities for exploring, hunting, fishing, and hiking.

Along with everything already mentioned, the property is surrounded by White River National Forest and includes a fitness center with spa, a historic dance hall, and several ancillary buildings like a four bedroom house used for hunting, and six guest cabins. And we still haven’t gotten to the main house yet.

While the property offers endless outdoor activities, the house itself is just as enticing. Built in 1993, the main lodge has an upscale log-cabin vibe. Constructed of log and stone, the home overlooks Seventh Lake and the rolling mountains beyond. The massive property sprawls out among extreme elevation changes, which provide beautiful views from the main lodge’s stone patio and pristine lawn.

Inside, the main lodge was recently redesigned by Kirsten. The home now offers a more contemporary mountain style. Rather than dark and filled with flannel typical of western mountain homes in the past, the spaces are bright and inviting. Inspired by nature with just the right amount of rustic touches, the decor lets you know this is a home in the woods. A few feminine accents like white upholstered seating in the great room and linen drapery add a soft and warm contrast to the stone and wood. Classic hunting lodge details remind you this is elk country, like the impressive chandeliers made from antlers.

At 13,907-square-feet, the main lodge has plenty of room to spread out. With eight bedrooms (plus a bonus room for staff), there is enough room to sleep up to 16 people. There is also a great room with 30-foot vaulted ceilings, a commercial-grade kitchen, a multi-table breakfast room, and a Western bar and lounge, oh, and a wine cellar of course. A property this size would be impossible to maintain on your own, so it includes a full-time staff of five employees to help manage things.

It’s a truly impressive, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Norman and Kutner are offering. At Seven Lakes Ranch, you can live a different life every weekend -,

The Night Agent season 2: Everything we know so far
We'll get you ready for The Night Agent season 2!
Luciane Buchanan and Gabriel Basso in The Night Agent.

The Night Agent may not be everyone's choice to be among the best shows on Netflix, but it's in the top ten for us! The Shield creator Shawn Ryan adapted Matthew Quirk's spy action thriller, The Night Agent, for Netflix in 2023, and it proved to be a hit out of the gate. By Netflix's internal metrics, it's the sixth-highest viewed series in the history of the platform.

Those kind of numbers mean that a second season was inevitable, and Netflix made it official just over a week after The Night Agent premiered. Since the series is back in production, the details about what's coming up on the show have started to trickle out. To help you stay on top of this series, here's everything we know about The Night Agent season 2.

The 10 best Dominican cigars I’ve tried and tested in 2024
Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.

Every seasoned cigar lover has a preference for where their cigars come from. Cuban and Cuban cigars are the more obvious choices, but there is also Nicaraguan tobacco, Central African, Indonesian, Mexican, Ecuadorian, and Dominican. Some tobacco is even grown in the United States. Each region has a distinct flavor profile that adds a little something extra to the tobacco grown locally, as well as the cigars made there. The Dominican Republic is prized by many connoisseurs because of exactly this -- a rich, unique profile that enhances Dominican-grown cigars. That's in no small part due to the fertile soil and thriving climate of the region, which is ideal for tobacco growth and cultivation. If you've never tried a Dominican cigar, you're in for a real treat, there are some fantastic options out there.
The best Dominican cigars I've tried

Out of all the cigar guides I've put together so far, this one was one of the more interesting experiences for me. I had a great time trying out Dominican cigars, and I've definitely come away with an appreciation for blends made in the region. I'd also like to point out that Corey Suarez helped recommend some of these. If you haven't tried the JR Cigars or Cigars.com concierge service yet, you really should. Here's a little more about all of the best Dominican cigars I've tried:

The 12 best Connecticut cigars I’ve tried and tested in 2024
Best Connecticut cigars up close and personal

Connecticut cigars are the clear winner for smoking on a hot summer day, in the morning with some coffee, or when you just don't want a swift kick in the teeth (of pepper). There's no shortage of options, either. Connecticut shade wrappers are one of the most prevalent in the world of cigars, and it's certainly the most common natural shade. Maduro is also popular, but the two wrapper types couldn't be any more different. Connecticut wrappers, and by proxy Connecticut cigars, are typically mild to medium in strength and brimming with creamy, smooth flavors. They're composed of tobacco leaves grown in the Connecticut River Valley in the United States -- which is where the name Connecticut comes from. Consistent and flavorful, some of the best beginner-friendly cigars are Connecticut-wrapped, but you should never sell them short. A Connecticut shade cigar can be just as refined, elegant, and premium as any other. If you know where to look, you may even find some of your favorite blends in the category across a wide range of brands and cigar makers.

I'm about to take you on a magical, doughy, and delicious trek through the broad range of Connecticut cigars. In short, here are the best Connecticut cigars tried and tested by a genuine enthusiast of the craft: yours truly.
The best Connecticut cigars I've tried and tested
While the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper is considered a Connecticut shade, I did my best to steer clear of recommending them for this list. They're better classified as a Maduro shade or darker cigar. That doesn't mean you should avoid them, quite the contrary. But for this list, I wanted to stick to smooth, relaxing smokes that are strong on flavor but not quite so strong on pepper and spice. I also tried not to choose a lot of repeats. If you see your favorite cigar missing, that might be because it was recommended on another list or it just didn't make the cut. If you have any recommendations of your own, I'm always available through social media or email. Without further ado, let's get this thing started.
