Wolf Point Club For Sale, 1600 Acres, Private Club, 5,000ft Paved Runway,
Incredible Golf Course, 7,200sf Home, Aircraft Hangar, Hunting, Fishing and More
The Wolf Point Golf Club and Ranch is truly one of the most incredible private ranches and golf courses in the country. It is absolutely one the most exclusive private clubs ever built. There has only been one owner that built the course to his specifications, for only himself and his friends to play. There has never been more than 200 people that have ever had the opportunity to play the course. It has been called the St. Andrews of Texas. It is truly one of a kind and is one of the top courses in America and was just recently voted number 96 of the top 147 golf courses in the world, by Ran Morrissett, the creator of Golf Club Atlas and the head of Golf Week Magazine top 100 rankings. He has been to Wolf Point three times! The course was designed by Mike Nuzzo, a renowned golf course architect, and the greens by Don Mahaffey. The golf course setting blends into the surrounding Gulf Coast environment. The way the course was designed and thought-out, was to build a course that fit into its surroundings, but to also be as low maintenance as possible. There is a lake of approximately twelve acres that provides water for all course irrigation. The lake collects all water runoff. There is a large irrigation well with a 75 HP submersible pump well that can also fill the lake if need be. The lake provides all water for the course irrigation system. The course irrigation system, weather station, and pump station are integrated into a central computer control system and can interface with any device connected to the internet. There is a beautiful clubhouse with his and her locker rooms and a large bar and gathering area overlooking the course. There are also two large maintenance barns for equipment and a cart barn for all the carts.
Three phase power and four transformers are present along with fiber optic lines that were installed that thinking of possible future development.
The surrounding property is all low fence except for the 5,000 foot paved runway and the climate controlled airplane hangar. This portion of the property is all high fenced. The runway was recently built to TxDot specifications and can accommodate almost any size aircraft. It was built to easily hold a B-737 aircraft. Almost all corporate jets can take off and land safely. The airport is on the Houston Sectional Chart and is known as Shank and Bank. There is both 100LL and Jet A aviation fuel at the hangar. There is also a beautiful large office connected to the hangar and the concrete apron area next to the office was poured to accept future construction of a two story facility.
The main house is a beautiful 7,200 sf home sitting on top of a hill with incredible views of the course. The home was built to withstand the Gulf Coast winds and hurricanes for many years to come. Floor to ceiling windows let in lots of light. The kitchen is a chefs dream. A gourmet commercial kitchen is built of mostly stainless steel and combined with beautiful modern lighting. The open kitchen and den area is perfect for entertaining.
The area surrounding the course holds a variety of wildlife including white tail deer, dove, duck and other animals. The ranch could easily be high fenced and stocked with superior genetics and exotics. Lots of beautiful live oaks and other hard woods cover the property. The native grass is in good supply and there is a variety of other native shrubs and trees. The acreage across the road fronts Carancahua Bay that opens into Matagorda Bay. This is a perfect location to build a fishing pier or a boat ramp. It is also a great location for a fishing lodge.
This property could be made into a world class golf, hunting and fishing destination. Companies and clients could fly into the 5,000 foot runway and be met and whisked away to the main lodge or the club house to get ready for a round of golf, a day of hunting or fishing on the bay.
Wolf Point is located only 1.5 hours from Houston.

The Wolf Point Golf Course as described by Don Mahaffey. Don assisted with the design, managed the construction, and was the course manager until Jan 1, 2018.
“When Mike Nuzzo, Golf Course Architect, and I first met with our client at Wolf Point Ranch, he said he wanted an 18-hole golf course for just him and his friends. He said he wanted it difficult, but didn’t want to be looking for balls, and he wanted a home course advantage – he was very intelligent, and didn’t like to lose. The more Mike and I studied his directives, and the windy coastal environment, the more we realized he was looking for playability like that of the Old Course at St Andrews. Mike and I had both been to St Andrews and we both consider the Old Course to be the best course in the world. So those were our marching orders, and one more, he wanted it designed with practical maintenance in mind. So that’s what we designed and built, and every time I go back I’m amazed at how well we did. The key to it all was a client who dared us to get “outrageous” and with his support that’s exactly what we did. But I’m biased, listen to what some others have said about the course.
Tom Doak- renowned Golf Architect and Golf Course critic – “best set of greens in Texas”
Tom Dunne – free-lance author and former editor of links magazine – “best golf course in Texas”
Ron Whitten – Architectural editor Golf Digest – “Wolf Point ought to be the model for public and private golf operations of the future”
Adam Lawrence – Editor Golf Architecture Magazine – “Wolf Point is a living breathing case study for how golf should be built in this day and age”
Ran Morrissett, creator of Golfclubatlas.com and head of the ratings panel for GolfWeek magazine. Ran’s review of the golf course is the most complete ever done and can be found here http://golfclubatlas.com/courses-by-country/usa/wolf-point-ranch/
Ran recently developed a new list he calls “147 Custodians of the game” one course for each year since the first British Open. These 147 courses are not necessarily listed as the best courses in the world but as the best courses in the world that celebrate the game of golf. Wolf Point is listed as #96 in the World, and #41 in the USA.
I rate golf courses for Golf Magazine and I have golf course projects all over the country including in golf hot beds like NYC and Philadelphia. I see a lot of great golf, but no course I’ve ever seen makes me want to grab my clubs and play like Wolf Point.
Wolf Point by any measure is a World Class golf course and I hope it lives on for many years. But that’s not what I hope for most. The man we built it for played it every day it was 60 degrees or warmer. I once asked why he never takes his clubs when he traveled, he smiled and said, “why would I ever play anywhere else”. My strongest hope is it ends up in the hands of someone who learns to love it as much as he did.
